About the Lecture:
Lee Earle turned 69 years old in June 2014 and it’s time to start planning for what will probably be his ‘Farewell Tour’. He has spread his love for Mentalism by presenting hundreds of lectures in just about every English speaking country in the world, and in quite a few others - with the help of translators.
Earle’s lectures go well beyond ‘teaching tricks’ and focus on modeling an example from which other performers can learn the real work:
1. Performance technique
2. Platform skills
3. Psychology of presentation
4. Supporting a performance premise
5. Delivery of humor
6. Directed attention (misdirection)
7. Professional attitude
8. Audience handling
9. Selecting the best material for every performance style
10. ...and more!
Magic clubs and enthusiasts are the pool from which Mentalism draws new, fresh talent - and every lecture is packed with real-world advice, ideas, and concepts that have helped numerous entertainers make their move into this lucrative specialty. His unique teaching style divides the lecture into multiple individual segments - each of which includes performance, explanation (while the material is fresh in the audience’s minds), discussion, and advocacy - putting the emphasis on simplicity, practical methods, and personality-driven presentations.
Lee always brings a variety of props and videos to every lecture to offer on his back-of-room table. When possible, these items are available at a discount from retail and ‘special deal bundles’ are always offered. While it’s always nice to make a few happy dollars peddling props, Lee’s first priority is always focused on teaching, not selling. Lecture notes are printed and bound booklets.
