Norman Beck LIVE (Penguin LIVE)
One of the most clever, and most respected magicians came to Penguin LIVE!
“There are only a few people in the world that I would consult with, share ideas, get advice, and their critique about magic, such a man is Norman Beck.” -Asi Wind
“Norman Beck fools me every time I see him. He was kind enough to let me put one of his effects on my last TV Special. He is very clever.” -David Blaine
“Norman Beck’s disarming character, wit, and charm hide his impeccable skills; the world is lucky he became a magician instead of a con man.” -Jared Kopf
“Watching Norman Beck perform magic is a little like watching Forrest Gump run for President. He’ll fool you badly (and you’ll like it).” -Stephen Minch
“I have seen Norman in action a number of times. He knows how to entertain an audience. I think he always makes this the primary goal when he selects his effects.” -Chuck Smith
“Norman is brilliant. He has created some of the seminal tricks in Magic and you should listen to what he has to say and use his ideas. Some of the biggest names in Magic already do!” -Peter Samelson
“Stormin’ Norman Beck is of my favorite people and magicians. He’ll make you laugh with his zany humor and that good-old-boy twang, and he’ll fool you with his diabolical thinking, methods, and routining.” -Steve Forte
“My good friend Norman will make you laugh and fool you! Don’t miss this!” – Bill Malone
“Thank goodness Norman Beck is on the side of the good guys. A lot of magicians like to think they have the skills to be a professional con man or psychic. Precious few actually do, but Norman is one of them. Behind that slow-talking, dull-witted Okie mask lies a clever-like-a-fox mind and one of the best friends a man could have. Whatever branch of his wide-ranging interests and expertise he cares to share — close-up and card magic, cheating, how to win friends and influence people, and more — I recommend you pay close attention. And try to stay on his good side.” -Jamy Ian Swiss
“Norman Beck is one of magic’s hidden gems. Until now, he has not been well known to most magicians (although that is in the process of changing). But, in underground” networks, he is both established and respected. His magic is charming, clever and commercial, and those qualities also define his lectures.” -Max Maven
“Norman Beck is a deep thinker with an entertaining delivery. Those ‘in the know’ will need almost zero encouragement to attend, however you will want to make sure those unfamiliar with his reputation are well informed of his credentials and that which he has to offer. Magicians from all over the state drove hundreds of miles just to attend one of his first lectures – myself included. Not only will smart magicians learn a lot of great material, those of all levels of expertise will have an entertaining and elucidating experience” -Brad Henderson
