COMMERCIAL CLASSICS 4-VOLUME
who is considered one of the best all-around magicians in the world,
explains what is on these excellent DVDs, "The material contained in
these tapes is made up of classic effects which have stood the test of
time and performance and therefore can truly be deemed commercial.
They are effects that I've successfully used throughout my career and,
in most instances, the moves, routines and handlings were garnered
directly from the authors. It is, in my estimation, some of the best
close-up, parlor, walk-around and stage magic that has ever been
developed and the authors are a virtual Who's Who of magic that run
the gamut from Allerton to Zarrow, wth a great deal of Vernon in
between. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy learning and performing
these wonderful Commercial Classics as much as I have."
