His material is featured in the acts of a number of working professionals the world over, and he is in high demand as a consultant. In addition to his many published works on magic, mentalism, and kids magic (in the pages of Genii, the Linking Ring, Magic Magazine, M-U-M, Laugh-Makers, Syzygy, The Magic Menu, Magick Magazine, The Altar Flame, Oracle Magazine, Vibrations and more), Mark has also been featured on nearly 20 video productions. He is a prolific creator with nearly 80 commercial releases,
Mark is often credited with having started the worldwide phenomenon of strolling magic with the publication of his 1996 classic book "Mobile Mentalism," a movement that has literally exploded in the years since then. He is also the creator of the legendary Sight Unseen Case, recognized by Docc Hilford as”One of the top ten devices ever created for the working mentalist."
As a working pro Mark is truly a general practitioner in that he performs magic, mentalism, hypnosis, close-up, parlor, stage, strolling, kids and family, comedy and more, and his lectures reflect his wide experience.
Mark's new lecture, "G-Flat 9" truly has something for everyone from close-up to parlor to stage. Everything in the lecture is very unique and all extremely simple to perform. In fact, be sure that you bring a deck of cards with you to the lecture because you are going to perform a couple of the effects for yourself before you even learn them. It's a unique experience, to say the least.
Even if you are very familiar with Mark's material, most of this new lecture will be brand new to you because Mark is releasing material that he has been guarding closely, for decades in some cases.
