Just In! Milwaukee Journal Sentinel review of Marc's show.

Marc Salem - Mind Over Milwaukee

Hide your thoughts! Marc Salem is in town! Quick-witted family fun with a WOW finish!

- Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times

We encourage you to see Marc's stage show at the Rep. "Mind Over Milwaukee" will run December 28 - February 24, 2013. For show information and tickets visit the Rep's website http://www.milwaukeerep.com/season/milwaukee.html

Mentalist Marc Salem brings his interactive stage show to The Rep for an experience that will leave you astounded, dumbfounded, and believing the unbelievable! Using psychological techniques, a sharp eye for human nature, a quick wit, and more than 20 years of close study, Mr. Salem creates a mystifying, often hilarious show that explores the depths and true capabilities of the human mind.

Artistic Director Mark Clements take: How to describe brilliant, witty mentalist Marc Salem and Mind Over Milwaukee? It’s not a play, it’s not a musical, and it’s certainly not a magic act. So let’s call it an entertainment, tailor- made for a Milwaukee audience. Jaws will drop as Marc separates truth from lies in increasingly amazing ways—and the audience wonders, “How did he do that?!”

Marc Salem has been a student of the human mind for over 30 years. As an academic he holds advanced degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and New York University, and has been on faculty of several major universities for close to two decades. He is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on non-verbal communication. How the mind creates reality and meaning has been his major focus. As a researcher Professor Salem has traveled the globe exploring the mind and its potential. He was a director of research at Sesame Street studying the development and nature of the mental process. As an entertainer Marc has performed around the world, astounding and entertaining millions. His show Mind Games concluded two extended runs on Broadway to both critical and popular acclaim. The Sydney Opera House, the Edinburgh Festival and Singapore's Esplanade have also hosted extended runs of Mind Games.

He has been featured on the The O'Reilly Factor, Montel, Maury, CNN, and has been a frequent guest on Regis. He has had two network television specials, with more to come. Marc has also completed 3 sell-out seasons in London. He is a regular guest on Court TV, and was profiled on 60 Minutes by Mike Wallace.

The critics love Marc's show:

Mind-blowing is the only way to describe Marc Salem's Mind Games. This is a one man tour de force as Marc wows and charms his audience for an hour and a half with his incredible ability to read minds."

- Liz Smith, New York Post

Bill Cook Lecture at Ring 41, Nov 28th, 2012 PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 26 October 2012 00:00

I.B.M. Ring 41 will present a Lecture, direct from Chicago, by Bill Cook on Wednesday November 28th., 2012.

ibmlogo_150x112

Bill Cook is one of the most talented young magicians I have ever seen. Besides being a flawless magician, he is a great entertainer! Personality, originality, creativity; add them up and you have Bill Cook! - Lance Burton

 

Bill Cook is the Future of Magic. A three-time winner of the Lance Burton award of excellence, and having just won Second Place in the world for his close up magic in the World Magic Seminar International Close-Up Competition held in Las Vegas, Bill took First Place and the Prestigious People’s Choice Award at the Chicago Magic Competition. Bill was the youngest competitor.

Bill is one of Six featured Teens in the Brand New Award Winning Documentary entitled Make Believe. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the LA Film Festival, and the Audience Choice award at the Austin Film Festival, Make Believe is guaranteed to be one of the best films you'll ever watch.

Bill's talents include a wide variety of magic, ranging from intimate close-up magic, to walk-around magic, to birthday party magic, and all the way up to stage performances.

For Bill, magic is not just a career, but a way of life. He is a believer that magic is a way to connect to people. Magic breaks all language barriers. He believes that magic can be incorporated into almost any aspect of a person’s life, because magic is all around us.

And of course, the motto that Bill lives by:

"For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not, none will suffice." - Dunninger

 

Keep an eye out for this up and coming performer.

Bill performed both stage and close-up at the 2012 Houdini Club Convention this past September.

Sal Piacente Lecture at Ring 41 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 20 August 2012 00:00

I.B.M. Ring 41 will present a Lecture, direct from Chicago, by Sal "The Hitman" Piacente on Wednesday September 26th., 2012.

ibmlogo_150x112

Sal Piacente has been a world authority on Casino Games since the late 1980's. He was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1964. His father sparked his interest early in life when he taught him "Three Card Monte" so that he would not be swindled by it in the streets. He then began to practice various card-cheating techniques and study every card, dice and gaming book he could get his hands on. His passion for knowledge of the different ways to cheat at all the casino games grew so tremendously that he made a career out of it, but not how you may think.

Residing in Chicago, Illionis, Sal has even stretched his quest (educating the unwitting) to the public arena by authoring a book called Street Monte in 1998. In this book, he reveals the methods that street hustlers use to cheat the naive out of their money in Three Card Monte and the Shell Game. Using his skills for magic, Sal has authored several DVD's recently. Along with his Three Card Monte and Three Shell work, he also has a two volume series called "Sal Piacente's Expert Card Magic." Incredibly, his routines do not require you to be "Ed Marlo" to perform them. This is solid, strong playing, card magic, with a touch of gambling to round it out.

Sal Piacente, Wednesday, September 26th., 2012 @ 7pm
