Do you know the name Jared Kopf? If you do, you know this gentleman is the foremost student of the elusive and wonderful Bob White. Like White (who studied with Vernon and Miller), Mr. Kopf has spent his life dedicated to the classics of magic, and fine-tuning the fundamental sleights of card magic. Kopf’s hands are some of the best in the business!
My lectures always wind up covering a variety of topics: sleight-of-hand card and coin magic, classical magic (Cups & Balls, Linking Rings, etc.), mentalism, and “readings” with various symbols, especially the Tarot de Marseille. The lecture’s thesis argues for a uniﬁed theory of Magic as a natural phenomenon. I have done incarnations of this ever-evolving lecture for Conjuring Arts University and across North America, Europe, China, Hong Kong, and Japan, spreading the word that Magic is real—even the fake kind.
Lectures are 2 to 3 hours. Workshops are 6 to 8 hours. Lectures are $20 per person. Workshops, which are designed for 5 to 15 attendees, are $100 per person. Both formats cover topics drawn from the same material, but the workshops are more hands-on and cover more technically demanding sleights and concepts.
