Allan Ackerman is one of the great card workers of the last two decades. So why don't we hear his name more often? He has, in recent years, been more reclusive on the magic scene, but that all changes now, thanks to this quality DVD set. Nearly three hours of footage.

If you are looking for a stellar "best of" primer to Allan's work, this is it. If you want to learn his work on the Zarrow, this is it. If you want to learn lots and lots and lots of tiny finesse points that will improve your magic, this is the set. Paul Kozak seems an odd choice for host, and there are glitches in the filming as it was originally a live lecture series, but these small issues aside, the set is really great.

Customer reviews for Allan Ackerman A Material



FINALLY...I have very fond memories of seeing Allan do magic for me for hours in Las Vegas. It was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in magic. He is a wise, kind man, and I can't wait to see this.



This is HUGE news that Allan has a new DVD set out. I just ordered it from you. I bought Las Vegas Kardma from you guys and have loved his book. Now I can't wait to see the man in action!

If I could I would give this 3.5 stars out of five. There’s a couple reasons. This DVD is a recording of an online lecture, and at least in the version I got they didn’t do ANY editing at all. They even kept in “commercial breaks” on the DVD! There are no chapters, it’s basically just a video file put on A DVD.

The material is pretty good. Because of the editing, there is not as much material on it as you would think, for example in the beginning the first effect, the poker deal, takes like 30 min to explain, which could have definitely been cut down.

I did enjoy much of the material however, just be prepared for poor quality “editing”.
