Wayne Dobson – Penguin LIVE – 24 May 2015
Wayne Dobson became well-known through various television appearances for his fast-talking presentations, one-line humor, and split-second timing.
His talent for blending witty humor and wonderful magic won him work as an opening act on tours with top U.K. performers and landed him a comprehensive American tour which had him entertaining in Las Vegas, Hollywood, Los Angeles, Atlantic City and more.
At the height of his fame he even had his own television series entitled “Wayne Dobson – A Kind of Magic.” Unknown to the public at that time, he had also been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and knew it would eventually limit his mobility, but he continued working to his fullest potential. In the face of such adversity most would be tempted to give up, but Wayne rose to the challenge, and continues to be an inspiration to us all.
In this Penguin Live lecture, Wayne shares many of the high points of his career and teaches you the magic that got him there. Of course, he’s still gifted with a quick wit and razor-sharp intelligence as you’ll see in his version of the tossed-out deck. And, he displays his commitment to interesting presentations as he uses a number of invisible props leading to one visible, folded card in a purse.
Then, Wayne treats you to one of his most famous signature pieces as Alice selects a word and he tries to discover it with hilarious results.
Next, when a chosen card vanishes from the deck, Wayne gets to the bottom of it by revealing that the spectator has been sitting on the whole time.
Then, Wayne shows just how clever he is as the spectator randomly finds a lucky card which just happens to exactly match Wayne’s lucky card.
In addition to live performances, you also get to enjoy early video of Wayne’s Lightning Matrix and his coins through wand routine. Plus, many awesome card tricks. And, all of the video routines are well-taught by Wayne’s friend Mike Sullivan.
Of course, you’ll love the magic and all the laughs we share as you get a chance to hang out with a truly delightful and inspirational magician. The great Wayne Dobson, right here at Penguin Live.
