This lecture will elevate your close-up and parlor magic to the next level with applications that can be adapted to fit any performance situation. The lecture is filled with hidden gems gained through decades of real-world experience. There are no pipe dreams.

For those of you not familiar with Michael's work, he is an author, creator, performer and consultant.  He regularly works for many fortune 500 companies weaving magic into their presentations and hospitality suites.  In 2012 Michael opened his one man show "Imagine" which ran completely sold-out for 3 consecutive years.   Michael earned his PhD in magic at the prestigious FFFF invitation only gathering.  A member of the Magic Circle in London, England, Michael was accepted as A.I.M.C. with Silver Star designation.  Since the release of his first instructional book in 1994, Michael has lectured extensively for his peers throughout the world from conventions to various group and club meetings to the Magic Circle and the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California where he has also performed on several occasions.

He is an inventor and a creator of world-class magic with many instructional books, DVD's and effects on the market.   Known for his impeccable sleight-of-hand and smooth performance style, Michael has also been dubbed "King of the Cups" by the late Mike Rogers.  He has created both new and novel approaches to classic effects as well as being the creator and manufacturer of some of the finest cups and balls sets and chop cups in the world.  This is one lecture you will not want to miss!

What will he teach?
While Michael has a basic outline for this lecture, it is also the peoples lecture.  This is what makes the live learning process so valuable.  The ability to ask questions.  Quite simply that can't be done on a DVD or in a download release.
  Each lecture is bound to be a slightly different and based upon what the collective group wishes to engage in seeing and discussing.  With a lifetime of magical knowledge nothing is off the table.  While Michael will have some products to sell, THIS
IS NOT a dealer demo.  Everyone will be able to leave and perform some of the effects straight away.

A sampling of magical effects...

My CCR - My go to Chop Cup Routine that has plenty of magic and doesn't insult your audiences intelligence with a guessing game.

Chop Box - A chop cup routine done with a box made out of cards and a signed card.  The payoff comes with unexpected surprises including the signed card ending up in an impossible location.

Sci-Fly - Michael's take on the fingertips coins across plot.  So squeeky clean it can be done in the shower!

What Box? - Why not remove the cards by having the box vanish a little at a time with just a wave of your hand.  A classic plot turned on it's head.

Cold Fusion - Remove any two cards from the deck, fuse them together face to face and instantly split them into two separate cards again.  The perfect precursor to the Anniversary Travelers.

Anniversary Travelers - A unique take on the Anniversary Waltz where two signed selections are removed from separate pockets then fused together back to back and given away as a souvenir.

Sweet Tear - Rip open a package of sweets and immediately reseal it and give it away.  But wait, there's more.. come see it at the lecture to find out the rest!

Escape - David Copperfield caused quite a stir in the magic world when he performed Timothy Wenk's "Misled" on television.  Imagine passing a pen through a bill without any gaffs or gimmicks.  Totally impossible and totally impromptu!  This is an updated handling of "The Great Escape" that I originally published in 1990.  So good it looks like a camera trick and super easy to do.

KFC - This ingenious card fold will take the place of the standard Mercury Fold.  Learn how to fold a card into quarters while the spectators are burning the deck.  Best yet, they push their card into the center of the pack themselves.

Dollar Dollar - Two silver dollars are produced at your fingertips and then visually change one at a time into folding currency.  The ultimate in eye candy!

Clinger - A modernized twist on a neo-classic effect of a (wand) pen clinging to your outstreached fingers.  Both your hands and the pen may be examined.  Quick preparation and a genuine fooler.

"It is extremely obvious that Michael fully understands the difference between something that is magic and something that is magical."

 - Howard Hamburg

"Watching Michael Kaminskas work is a master class in sleight-of-hand and audience entertainment. Pay attention!" – Shoot Ogawa


"Michael has a great sense of finesse; he adds a touch of simple class to classic effects for the modern working pro. He knows how to make magic magical and memorable." - Francis Menotti


"Michael works in the real world for real people. His magic is created to work in all environments and produce hard hitting moments. If you want strong magic that works, I would pay attention." – Christian Painter
