George Schindler has more than 50 years of professional experience as a magician and entertainer. On this DVD 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 current Dean of the Society of American Magicians.
Entertainment First is the title of his lectures and the theme to everything he does. The DVD 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). You will then learn his clean and direct Sponge Ball Routine and his Coin In The Ring routine where a coin appears wrapped in a borrowed bill that is encircled by a borrowed ring which later vanishes and appears on your key case.
You will learn his rapid-fire card act that features his 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. Along the way you will be treated to George's Comic Prediction and Silk Penetration that he uses when he performs close-up and on stage. The DVD concludes with the two routines George uses when performing at tradeshows. You will learn his simple to follow Chop Cup Routine and Richard Himber's classic Polaroid Money.
Throughout the DVD 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!
