Al Koran Lecture Notes
From his humble beginnings as a lad with “no shoes” from London’s East End, Al Koran became one of the most successful mentalists of all time – performing his miracles for heads of state and royalty around the world with seven world tours; as well as on TV in England for a decade and a half. Koran’s innovative and practical approach to both magic and mentalism continues to influence how we practice our art, even today. In this set of notes from his 1971 lecture tour, you’ll learn about his early influences and why he made the transition from magician to mentalist. You’ll also discover why Koran challenged conventional wisdom by sometimes mixing magic and mentalism, often with extraordinary results.
