Woody Aragon - A Lecture in English @ The Melba Spiegeltent | Collingwood | Victoria | Australia

He is quite possibly one of the best card magicians alive. All the way from Spain, we welcome the one and only Woody Aragon! Woody will delve into his loveable character and not only delight you but teach you some of the strongest magic available.

Woody’s sensational magic is world-renowned, as are his energetic performances. Woody’s A Book in English, is one of the most heralded collections of card magic in the world. And Penn and Teller recently performed one of Woody’s original creations on The Tonight Show (and in their theatre show each night in Las Vegas).

The lecture:

+2 hours about card magic, including the presentation of his new book on the memorized deck “Memorandum” and some highlight from his best-seller “A Book in English”

Theory about structure of tricks and shows.

Very bad English (he says that he learned it in Lennart Green’s videos)

Innovative moves and principles.

And, most of them, very easy to follow, to understand and to do!

Recommended for ages 12+

Quotes about the lecture:

– Ray Kosby

I caught this lecture… it was definitely one of the best ones I have been to so far (speaking as someone who has attended lectures for decades). It was nice for those of us who attended to enjoy such an intimate setting with a wonderful close-up performer like Woody.
– James Marshall

Just incredible! Wow! Best lecture I’ve been to in awhile
– Jeff Eline

Woody’s magic is absolutely brilliant and what a performer! One of the most likeable magicians I have seen in years. Of course I know this when I saw him win all of those awards at last year’s SAM Convention in Pittsurgh. Naturally he received a standing ovation. It was a real fun evening.

Just saw Woody Aragon for the first time at the Magic Castle last night, and he exceeded high expectations. He gives life and depth to spelling tricks like no one else, his 10-card poker deal is as good as any, and he fooled me with things I’ve read about in his great Book in English. I was skeptical that 25 minutes of cards where the only move is a single double lift could compete with an act that makes more use of sleights but was completely disabused of that skepticism. He’s an object lesso in the importance of effect over method. Utterly enjoyable and a real revelation; I came out better than I went in. He belongs on any list of the handful of greatest close-up workers, and as is obvious from afar he is radiantly likeable.
