George Schindler has more than 50 years of professional experience as a magician and entertainer. On this video, he shares his lifetime of knowledge as he performs and teaches the routines he has used throughout his career. George is an outstanding performer, author, ventriloquist, comedian, and public speaker as well as being the past National President and Dean of the Society of American Magicians.
Entertainment First! is the title of his lectures and the theme to everything he does. The video begins with a live 20-minute show in which he performs his Sponge Ball Routine, Karrell Fox's Red Table (performance only), Coin In The Ring, Peek Production, Card To Pocket and Sealed Surprise (performance only).
Routines performed and explained:
►Sponge Ball Routine: George feels that a good sponge ball routine is one of the best routines you could do. He teaches the routine he has been using his entire life. It is direct and features all the vanishes, appearances and multiplications necessary for a great routine.
►Coin In The Ring: A coin appears wrapped in a borrowed bill that is encircled by a borrowed ring which later vanishes and appears on your key case.
►Card Routine: You will learn a rapid-fire card act that you can do close-up or on stage. It features George’s Peek Production, Card To Pocket, Ambitious Card, and Card To Wallet. Each routine is very strong on its own, but George shows how the entire sequence can be a magical and entertaining act.
►Comic Prediction: A card is selected and named. You show a prediction envelope which contains a 52 on 1 gag card and when it is turned over it reveals the selection. A simple and direct gag-based routine with laughs and surprises.
►Silk Penetration: A selected card appears pictured on a silk scarf. After the surprise revelation, the silk is tied to the spectator’s wrist and it penetrates through it.
►Chop Cup Routine: A fast-paced and easy Chop Cup routine George uses at tradeshows where the ball appears, vanishes, and penetrates the cup. As a surprise finish, a large ball appears under the cup.
►Polaroid Money: This is George’s handling for Richard Himber's classic routine. It is an ideal routine for tradeshows and formal situations.
Throughout the video, you will learn the many techniques that George uses to accomplish his magic and his thoughts about using gags and humor to enhance your magic. After all, it is Entertainment First!
