A Professional's Repertoire
Ian Keable has
been a full time magician since 1990, working principally in Comedy Clubs
and at Corporate events. His lecture, Cabaret Magic, concentrates on the
theory and practise of what he does for a living: performing Cabaret for
In his lecture Ian performs and explains several tricks from his
professional repertoire to illustrate not only how to, but also how not
to, do Cabaret magic. Ian also talks about choosing Cabaret material, how
to be funny, patter to avoid, dealing with hecklers, using assistants from
the audience and other aspects of Cabaret magic which can only be learnt
through solid performing experience.
Above all the lecture is designed to be entertaining. He guarantees that
even if you don't use any of his tricks or buy his lecture notes, you will
still have a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
"I doubt anyone in magic offers a funnier, more effortlessly entertaining
lecture... I've no idea what he charges but he's worth double." Ian
Rowland (from a report in Abra).

We Are All Absolutely Beside
Associate Member of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star (London) and
Member of the Academy of Magical Arts (Hollywood), Jez Rose is a highly
respected lecturer, presenter and performer. His reputation is built on
his ability to explore complicated topics with tremendous honesty,
clarity, warmth and humour.
Presented in Jez’s well-known relaxed and professional style, what is
We Are All Absolutely Beside Ourselves?
- It is a lecture about taking effects you already perform and
creatively making them different, more appealing, more theatrically
interesting, entertaining and more magical.
- It is a lecture that will show how 3 seconds can instantly improve
- It is a lecture about differentiating yourself as a performer and what
that means with your existing routines and how it can result in you
- It is a lecture that will explain how 7 seconds can instantly boost
- It is a lecture that teaches some of Jez’s favourite routines,
dissecting how to start with a moment, whether a purchased routine or a
selection of items, and create something that audiences care about,
which immediately makes you - and your magic - more fascinating, in turn
creating a ‘category of one’.
- It is a lecture like no other.
Working with theatrical directors, performers and television producers,
behind the scenes Jez is sought-after as an “act doctor” for his
attention to detail and his sharp understanding of how to elevate
performances to become more magical and meaningful, resonating with
audiences and standing out from others. With more than 100 appearances
on television as a magician and broadcaster and over 18 years as a
professional performer, his creative work in magic is often behind the
scenes and his performances under a pseudonym. For the first time he is
offering his collected thoughts and advice to the magic community.
“Jez is always at the top of his game. His innate ability to
entertain has enabled him to develop a solid business as a much in
demand corporate entertainer.”
“One of the most refreshing performers I’ve seen in a long time."
“Jez has a deep passion and understanding of magic, both theoretical
and practical and his personal performances have always been delivered
with real professionalism.”
“Jez is a phenomenal performing magician - not only a wonderful
performer but a font of information in the history of magic and magical
effects. There are very few people who have the diversity, appreciation
and magical knowledge that Jez has.”
Available as anything from 30 minutes to a full day workshop worldwide.

The brand new lecture from Mark Leveridge
All new material extracted from the E-Club Pro archives
Available in both Zoom and In-Person formats from January 2022 onwards
says: For the last few years I have successfully presented lectures
containing varied, practical effects from the E-Club Pro vaults.
Leveridge Legerdemain is the latest collection of this material, all
of which is completely different from that used in previous E-Club Pro
“On behalf of the Ring 205 in Indianapolis I wanted to say thanks for
the E-Club Live lecture. Lots of wisdom, logic and jewels were in the
information you shared with us.” Chris Topel
As usual, I perform and give full explanations of all the included
effects. The lecture contains magic that is suitable for a close up
show, mentalism, parlour work and strolling.
“Mark’s current lecture is to be thoroughly recommended because it’s the
ideal society lecture. There is no padding, just a series of highly
commercial effects expertly performed and fully explained. There is
material for the working pro and the young newcomer, nothing is
difficult to do and some items are virtually self-working. There is not
even a table with stuff for sale, which makes a change, because no
special props are required other than some simple DIY.” Keith Downs,
Peterborough Society Magicians
With over 40 years experience of presenting lectures to magicians all
over the world, I believe that I can offer a presentation that is
professionally delivered and which has no associated sales attached,
thus making it a true lecture and not a thinly disguised dealer dem!
“It was a pleasure to have Mark give his E-Club Pro-Live lecture. His
easy going and professional style were the perfect backdrop to some
varied, engaging and thoughtful magic – all workable and a great
addition to any act either as standalone effects or using elements to
enhance routines that you do. We would recommend him to any magic club
looking to build their lecture programme; you won’t be disappointed.”
Derek Oliver, President, Home Counties Magical Society

manipulation with bubbles, balls, and a bottle appearance. He also

techniques, psychology and rules followed by stage manipulators can
easily be applied to all performance situations: from cabaret to
close-up and from parlour to children's shows plus he explains the
thoughts and workings of a dove steal and how this method can be easily
adapted to produce a range of different objects.
