Nick Lewin – Confab
A No Frills Release of Nick Lewin’s CONFAB
I have been perfecting a version of this great effect since the mid-’70s and it has been a highlight in my lecture since that time. I recently recorded a very comprehensive DVD that details not only my innovative and unique handling but also the powerful manner that I have shaped it as a versatile tool in booking corporate shows. My handling has eliminated many weak spots in the original routine and added some really fabulous touches that take the routine to a whole new level. by combining another entire magic principle into the handling the result is a routine that is so clean it will take your breath away. In this DVD I explain how to perform this effect using either a standard Le Paul style wallet or my “Le Nick” style envelopes.
So many magicians already own a “Card To Wallet” style wallet that we decided to do a no-frills pre-release of the effect that doesn’t supply a wallet and merely details how to construct, rather than supplying pre-made envelopes for the effect. We do however supply the exact, correctly sized, files for the Order Form that is integral to the effect. This allows us to make the effect a great deal more cost effective in this initial pre-release. Everyone hates spending money that is unnecessary, magic is expensive enough already; I strongly suspect that the majority of our clients will choose to use the wallet method.
One of the strongest and most versatile mentalism/magic effects in the marketplace is Alan Shaxon’s Confabulation and the many variations of it that have sprung up over the years since Ken Brooke released it in the ‘60s. The basic effect/method actually predates Alan’s routine and has it’s roots very clearly in George Grimmond’s routine “Triple Forecast” that Harry Stanley released in 1951 through his “Unique Magic Studios.” The major difference was the fact that Alan’s routine utilized a wallet instead of the double envelope system that Mr. Grimmond employed. This is the NEXT level!
