A selection of Boris Wild’s best creations you can perform online or with social distancing. Are you doing virtual shows or want to and are looking for strong magic you can perform online? Do you want to learn new routines you can perform with social distancing once you can do live gigs again? Do you want to spend two hours with a FISM winner teaching you some of his best card effects and interacting live with you, all from your home?
Well, look no further… Boris Wild’s LIVE Online Lecture is made for you! The effects you will learn have all been thought out so you can perform them either through the lens of a camera or by keeping a distance from people. They are all visual and allow your viewers or spectators to play an active part in them from where they are. They also require very little sleight of hand so you can focus on the interaction with your audience. See you soon at Boris Wild’s LIVE Online Lecture!

In the past year we have been forced to make drastic and rapid changes if we wanted to continue performing. We have assembled a panel of performers, each of whom has made their own transition into the virtual space and found a way to perform from home. The panel will share their experiences, what works, what doesn’t, the challenges they have overcome and the gadgets and gizmos that make virtual performances possible.
Hosted by David Peck. David is the host of the Face2Face podcast with over five hundred episodes as well as a philosopher and a life-long student of magic. He will try to keep our ragtag rig of rowdy rapscallions and ragamuffins under control.
Jonah Babins is the host of the Discourse in Magic podcast, The Newest Trick in the Book and the co-founder of the Toronto Magic Company. In addition to professional development, he enjoys long walks on the beach and unrolling his eyes after Ben Train has done something irritating.
Matt DiSero is a magician, comedian and aspiring Time Lord. Along with his trusty sidekick Hartnell the Chicken he has brought joy, delight, wonder and sarcasm to audiences across Canada and the world.
Michael Feldman nerdy intellectual property lawyer by day, nerdy magic superstar by night, masked crime fighter at tea time. Known for blending mind bending sleight of hand with mind blowing philosophical puzzles.
Graemazing is a level seven wizard with a black belt and a starfish badge in mind reading. Yes, those are real things.

He has lectured across Canada, the US, the UK and now performs virtually at the Margaret Catwood Virtual Magic theatre alongside Jonah Babins who after being in lockdown with him for nine months has managed somehow not to smother him in his sleep.
