Outline:

Master showman and pickpocket Mark Raffles shares some of his most treasured secrets in this delightful DVD.

 

"The Mark Raffles DVD is a must for anyone interested in pickpocketing, but more than that, it is beneficial to anyone that wants to learn the true secrets of magic. There are some great lessons to be learned on timing, misdirection, showmanship and stage personality. Mark is one of the last true music hall performers, and there is much to be learned from his many years of experience. It is a delight to see his act, and the details and bits of business he has added to it like: producing a dove after giving the silk to a spectator for examination, all the details on the development of his cups and balls with chicks routine, the general handling of the audience, etc. These can only be learned through thousands of performances. Mark is truly a professional and a great artist."
