Mark Calabrese had a smash debut At the Table Experience and now he’s back for a second installment. Mark is without doubt one of the busiest performers in New York today. He’s also responsible for a ton of original effects that has swarmed the market in recent years. When he isn’t trying to fool Penn & Teller, or consult for top magicians in the industry, Mark is always very busy, which is why we are delighted that he’s made time to sit down for a second lecture. Mark brings us his fooling, entertaining and sometimes disturbing repertoire of effects such as Cut for a Kiss, the perfect effect for any couple, and Mystery Card, which includes multiple presentations for his take on the mystery card plot. You’ll also hear his valuable thoughts on character development, approach and story line.
