Masterclass unlike anything you've seen before.

This includes some of first-ever recordings of the best effects from his iconic magic book Mike Caveney Wonders, as well his approach to parlor magic with illustrations from his own work. His invaluable insights on how to build act honed from a lifetime of developing magic are worth the price alone.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows you see some of the rarest magic lithographs in existence, as well as Carter the Great's most prized magic prop.

A very entertaining and informative masterclass. part one featured a number of close-up tricks whose performance and explanations I can only describe as simple and elegant. Mr. Caveneys tour of his Egyptian Museum was fun. In week three, he gave us performances and explanations for three of his parlour/stage routines. Even though I won't be doing any of these, listening to his explanations was a great insight into his creative process and very educational, as well as entertaining.

I have seen Mikes act as well as Tina’s several times and was even lucky enough to have sat down with him for a cup of tea at the Sessions
A very generous man with his time and clearly happy to pass on his knowledge to the next generation. I think all that comes through on his DVDS
I do have Mikes books and find the DVDs helpful and compliments them nicely. I don’t think you could describe the cutlery dropper in words Many thanks

Mike Caveney truly is one of the magic world's absolute treasurers and the guys at Vanishing Inc have managed, thanks to their Masterclass series, to get the most from this giant of our industry. This was so much more than a magic lecture or collection of tricks and advice. Absolutely loved it.

What a fun lecture! The tour of the Egyptian Hall Museum was a real treat. Being able to see, even on video, those artifacts from magic's colorful history really serves as a powerful reminder of all those giants on whose shoulders we stand. The best part, though was learning more about some of those "little guys." Thumb tips up!

I could say a lot of great things about the tricks Mike Caveney showed. But the Egyptian Hall Museum Tour is something special. It might not be everyone's cup of tea (although I think it kind of should), but I love seeing and hearing about the 'old' stuff. The stories, seeing the posters and the tricks. The only downside is, that I want to see it in person and want to own such amazing magical artifacts. But seeing it in the Masterclass is close enough. For now.

Mike Caveney is just an amazing guy! Stand-up, close-up, history...what more could you want

 
Reviewer

Lior

Mike is a legend. His explanations are brilliant and he combines noble modesty and smile and professionalism. His ideas in the first part that focuses on close-up can be used both as an act in their own right and as ideas for use and development in other sections. Looking forward to the second part.

Excellent stuff!

Mike is a wealth of info and a very talented presenter/magician. This isn't a master class that I would return to for the magic effects but in terms of history and story telling, it doesn't get much better than this. Being able to get a tour of Mikes place was amazing.

I've only watched the first 3 weeks, but so far, it has been just amazing. Tricks he teaches are great but for me, the highlight was the Egyptian Hall Museum tour as well as the small anecdotes he talks about throughout the lecture. Mike Caveney is a true master in magic (both close up and stage), but he also is one of the greatest historians in magic, as he also has written the Classic Correspondence. Amazing Masterclass!

This series started strong and grew more fascinating every week, like a masterfully programmed show. Mike took us not only behind the effects but also inside the theory, which is where we learn the real magic.

This has been such a unique experience. A wonderful insight into Mike's close-up work in week one, a rare opportunity to see his extensive collection of magic history in week two, and some really detailed work on some of his prized pieces from his stand-up act in week three. Highly recommended.

Mike Caveney's Masterclass has been a true highlight for me. All the Masterclasses have been excellent but few are as unique as these especially the second masterclass. Being taken on a trip through Egyptian Hall with a true Scholar of magic history. I would happily love to see more of these with Mike and to spend time with him in this way. Thanks Mike and to Vanishing Inc. for giving me an opportunity to do some thing that would just not be possible a year ago.

Great Masterclass! There was one lecture so far, but I'm already loving it! The close-up tricks were really good, and I'm going to perform them. Now I can't wait for the Egyptian Hall Museum Tour. I'm sure it’ll be really good to see the museum.
