Live lecture by David Regal ($75.00)

We're pleased to announce your November 2020 Masterclass: Live instructor...David Regal. What makes David an ideal instructor is his multifaceted showbiz background. David began in the New York improv comedy scene, and transitioned into a storied career writing for stage and screen. He has written for some of the top shows and films of the last twenty years. Simultaneously, David has released four enormous book collections of original magic, a series of DVDs, and a near-constant stream of hit tricks. He is, perhaps, the most prolific creator in magic today. This confluence of comedy, writing, and magic makes him an ideal candidate to share with us the real secrets of magic.

David will take us through three detailed lessons in magic, and he'll impart theory and wisdom, but ALWAYS through practical, fun, original effects. There will be MANY tricks for close-up and parlor taught in full, and ready to be inserted into your repertoire. We'll see you there...in November.

Customer reviews for David Regal: Masterclass: Live

Reviewer

Jay

Excellent! Creative magic, good instruction, variety of magic categories shared, founded in important principles, good anecdotes that emphasize becoming a better magician, less focus on "tricks" and more on "audience connection," well referenced, upbeat and energetic, and at times funny! I'm really enjoying this.

 
Reviewer

Jeff

It's David Regal, so it's top notch! His discussion on Premise is worth the price by itself. Add to that more discussions on theory and presentation and you have a very important series. The effects are fun to see especially the thinking behind them. As is typical there are a lot of items that require arts and crafts. I wish there was more time given on the actual construction or maybe an additional download on some of the more complex ones (like the bottle). Excellent mix of discussion, slight of hand, semi-auto-matic and prop magic.

 
Reviewer

Daniel

David Regal is my favorite lecture so far! He is fun and funny and really knows the art! I have learned so much! The first lecture was worth the price alone! So much great content and it did not stop! I looked forward to every Sunday with David Regal! My magic and how I want people to feel about experiencing my magic has greatly improved through this lecture. Keep the excellent lectures coming Josh and Andi, and we will all be better magicians because of this!

I rarely review magic publicly, and this is my first review on Vanishing Inc.
This masterclass series is seriously good, and you will not be disappointed if you purchase it.
What will you learn from David Regal's masterclass?
• Lots and lots of different effects using, coins, cups, napkins, cards, wine bottles, even gummy bears.
• Various sleights and controls
• Thoughts on premise, plot, motivation, talking, gimmicks vs sleights and finding elegant solutions
• David Regal loves diet Mountain Dew and is mildly crazy

 
Reviewer

Norbert

Amazing. The tricks were great. Sure, they are in his books or can be bought in other ways. But this is so much better. Feels casual, live demos of the tricks - not some potentially staged ads of it. Authentic, fun, - time goes by too fast when you are watching this. The material keeps you busy for a while. Obviously not everything is "my cup of tea", but inspiring in any case. Interesting to hear Davids thoughts on these things, designing magic...

David teaching method has the ability to really sparkle ideas in your mind, more than just giving you effects, gimmicks and sleight of hands (and you get a lot of that too). Listening to him talking about his approach to magic was really inspiring and that alone worth the price of the subscription.

This was so great. Thank you David. Authentic, fun, no possibly staged ads of tricks, true live performances. Time went by so quickly and leaves me with lots of material to go over and practice..

 
Reviewer

Dan

I've always enjoyed David Regal's style, material and teaching. This Masterclass series is excellent. Some new material, some old, mostly stuff that hasn't been seen on video before. But the real magic of this series is David's philosophy of magic and his discussions of theory, the why rather than the how. Well worth the investment.

 
Reviewer

Each one of these classes has been incredibly in depth and informative. And each one was so unique. This is such a great archive of the best magic of our time.

Action-Packed! A Thrill a Minute! Two Thumb-Tips Up!

 
Reviewer

Loved every minute. The tricks were varied and the skill level was attainable, nothing too knucklebusting. His insights into the creative process and the meaning of magic were great.

Very nice discussion on the importance of frivolity in our lives

 
Reviewer

Excellent class. Not just about method, but about developing a logical progression to reach the conclusion.

 
Reviewer

Jonathan

Incredible magic, which you might expect from David Regal. But the real bonuses were the deep dives that David took in discussing how to think about magic and performance. In every respect, this Masterclass was priceless.

 
Reviewer

Brian

This is gold! There is more here than you would pick up in a week of lectures. "Masterclass" is truly the right moniker for this three lecture series by David Regal. It's not a lecture to learn a few moves but how to really think about what makes magic magical! Feel like I could watch this on repeat for the rest of the year and still be learning.

 
Reviewer

Robert

David was truly engaging in the virtual environment. (Is he that good in the real world?) Loved the structure over the three weeks; the repetition and reinforcement of themes and ideas. Thanks David. Thanks Vanishing Inc.

 
Reviewer

David Regal's Masterclass got richer with every week. A most generous gift of his thoughts, insights and methods. A true gent.

 
Reviewer

Michael

A GREAT thought-provoking lecture on many levels. The creativity was off the charts...as was David's generosity in not holding back and, instead, teaching such great magic...thereby confirming the precious by-product of his creativity.

 
Reviewer

Richard

I really liked that David Regal gave a range of sleights and gimmicks and showed how both are useful. His use of items that beyond cards and coins gave me ideas that are useful for real world performances. David's conclusion on how magic can have an important effect on the spectators was inspiring!

In this series, David Regal won't just teach you magic. He'll open up your mind about magic, inspiring change through uncovering some amazing realisations from his experience over the years. As well as coming up with great original material - you'll learn plenty of magic for sure, but it goes beyond that, David gets you asking the questions around why you do magic, what journey do you want to take your audience on, why and even covering some of the how through his analogies from the world of music. There were definitely a number of "wow" moments through this series. Absolutely loved it!

 
Reviewer

Jack

So many gems it's like I hit the motherlode—and I mean actual complete tricks and routines as well as utility moves and gimmicks, AND those little flashes of genius perhaps even unknowingly bestowed on an off beat or throwaway comment that comes from the benefit of decades of experience and will suddenly make you rethink that latest thing you're working on, or even the go-to routine that's been in your repertoire for years. Seriously, the genius is contagious, and conferred with wit, charm, humility, and the ease of expression that will make you think of that favorite teacher who changed your life. If you're hesitating, you shouldn't be; this is gold, pure and simple.

 
Reviewer

Michael

Well thought out with a variety of trick types and presentations. David’s opinions of premises, plots, and methods v. effects are insightful and valuable for how we should all approach our own magic.

David Regal is an incredibly generous, thorough, delightfully devious lecturer, and magician! He gifts his frivolity, so we may grow as magicians, and make the World a better place!

David is the rare gem in the magic world of performer (actor/comedian/improv), writer, & creator. The things he offers are real-world, usable tricks and advice - pipedreams and piffle. The three installments of this MasterClass was a perfect mix of his philosophy and theories about magic and performing, and great tricks that work in many different venues. I loved it!

Masterclass is always excellent. Each time I get things out of it. I love that I can go back to the download to review later. Each month brings about a new style and view on what Magic is.

 
Reviewer

Doug

Awesome material, fantastic insights. David Regal gives us magical thinking in its entirety, not just the "why" of doing the mechanics of the effect, but also the "why" of performing it. Invaluable.

 
Reviewer

David

Great class. Wide variety of effects explained with the reason why. Will watch again this week to try get a good grip on what was taught.

 
Reviewer

Edmund

David Regal is one of my favorite thinkers and creators of all time. This class today was in someways a live version of his books, Approaching Magic and Interpreting Magic. I love his thoughts which are as important as any of the tricks he teaches. Who are you? What are you and what is the premise or plot? F-A-N-D-A-M-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!

 
Reviewer

Ricardo

This is without a doubt one of the greatest Masterclass so far, David gives a lot of concepts that will help you be a better performer. This Masterclass is packed with tricks (not only cards) so you will for sure find something that will make this worth the entire price.

 
Reviewer

Frankie

I've seen David Regal lecture before, but this Masterclass is very different than those lectures. I especially enjoyed the 3rd lecture where David addresses the "frivolity" of magic. His passion and thoughts about magic really come through, and were greatly appreciated by this viewer. Thank you David, and thank you Vanishing Inc.

 
Reviewer

Scott

David Regal’s master class was filled with superior ideas, clear philosophy, and clever methods to create magic and develop effective presentations. David was an inspiration to find our own voice and focus on the needs of the audience. I am looking forward to next months lecture. The Jam packed lectures of David flew by. Thanks to David and Vanishing Inc.

 
Reviewer

Matt

This was my first full masterclass with Vanishing Inc. I am completely blown away by the amount of information that I was able to get in 4 weeks. David Regal has got me in a whole new level of thinking. I feel full of inspiration (which is what we all need right now in this incredibly weird year). I wish I had known about him and his plethora of ideas and material sooner. These lectures alone have made him one of my new favorites to watch perform and to listen to on how to get better. These Masterclasses give you an opportunity to get some true close up time with the greats of modern magic. Even if you don't recognize the name or the face of whose next up, I feel like Andi and Josh have a great judgment on who to put up in front of the camera. I'm incredibly happy with the investment I've made and I cannot wait until next month!

 
Reviewer

Stefan

This Masterclass really has a perfect and well thought through balance between tricks and theory. If only my classes back at school had been thought through like this.

Everything is connected and flows perfectly into each other. You can see David really planned out the whole Masterclass in detail.

He teaches something for everyone, from beginner to professional, for in real life performances and the zoom type shows. From small methods to big thinking. For close up to parlour and some methods/ tricks, but definitely the theory, shouldn't be overlooked for stage shows too.

Mister Regal has a lot to show and tell, so he overruns sometimes, which no one will find a problem. He doesn't rush through things or skip things to keep it in time.

David starts every Masterclass with a nice little trick and from there on dives deeper into tricks, method and the connection to theory. At least 7 tricks every Masterclass, giving you at least 21 tricks + theory + the recorded zoom meeting.

I can't see any magician being disappointed with this Masterclass.

As usual, another fantastic interactive experience where I walked away feeling better and more knowledgeable.

It's hard to figure out who my favorite is throughout this series so far because everyone is so charming with their own incredible perspectives.

I loved David's creativity and his genuine excitement. But, with him talking fast and non-stop, I was sometimes having difficulty understanding what topic he was alluding to. For instance, in the lecture index, five topics followed immediately one after the the other , to-wit:
"Introduction/The Asset We Ignore"...followed by
"Interpreting Magic"...followed by "How to Fail a Test that Has No Wrong Answer"...followed by "Interpreting Magic"...followed by "What's Happening"...etc.

With David talking so excitedly and non-stop, I was getting confused as to whether or not a sentence or phrase was making the current point...or was the start of the next point. It was like writing sentences with no space inbetween the words. Anss os, as I treid to figure out whether or not where a particular point should be referencing, I was frequently losing important points David was making because I was distracted away from that point lby my conscious thinking about where the previous statement was supposed to be referencing.
In essence, there was no time to have a momentary break between topic because David was excitedly imparting words of wisdom with such speed that my "reflecting" mind could not keep up.

My bad, I'm sure. And, fortunately, with the download, with repeat (repeated?) playing, all will become clear.

That said, I love the creativity and the concept of a single word changing the focus of an ordinary oft-repeated trick and trick premise into a disguised "new" effect. The "puppy" trick and the "All's Fair" are just two great examples of that concept...and has me really thinking about this application in my existing magic. Way to go, David!

Let me first tell you that I should have probably given this five stars, and I would have if I didn't own Mr. Regal's books. It's a really amazing lecture. I love the theory, the tricks, and mostly David Regal!! But because of materials that overlapped, I wish there were more new materials. But one of the best lectures for sure. David Regal is a fantastic teacher. The materials are pretty we distributed. Some gimmicks, some sleight of hand, some parlor, some close-up, a little mentalism, obviously those materials are top-notch. My favorite effect is Hamman's child. It is a sort of signed card to impossible location(at least that's what the audience will remember it as). It teaches you a really really beautiful sleight, which looks just so clean. Another great trick is called Change for a five. Sadly, I knew this because it was published in Approaching Magic, but it was really beautiful to see how Mr. Regal does it.
