He transforms the meeting room into a magic/novelty shop. He offers a potpourri of effects, gags, and bar bets with coins, ropes, large nails, flash string, squeakers, and ribbons. He seems sometimes to come from outer space with his hyperkinetic body language and outlandish discourse, and yet he is chock full of down-to-earth advice on how to capture an audience’s attention and create a thrill at an effect’s climactic moment.
He is the incomparable Bob Little of Hatboro, Pennsylvania
He virtually sets the room on fire with his enthusiasm. He also sets most of us thinking about how we can make our conjuring presentations considerably more exciting by emphasizing the entertainment factor and the need to sell ourselves as much as our routines
Bob’s specialty is cards, but he doesn’t teach us any tricks per se. What he explains, clearly and precisely, are various dynamic methods for dramatically revealing selected cards and tips on how to purposefully “show off’ to our spectators with eye-popping yet easy-to-accomplish flourishes and displays
His repertoire is culled from the legacies of such as Walter Cummings, Paul Rosini, Ken Allen, and Max Londono, but he exemplifies how to customize the creations of others to suit our own styles.
A special treat is his demonstration of expert card scaling and boomerang spinning. Whether cutting a card in midair with a pair of shears or slashing through a newspaper page from a distance of 15 feet or more, Wild Man Bob evokes audible gasps of admiration from the group
There is no other magician-no other human being-in the world like Bob Little. And, because underneath his quirky, sexy “Wild Man” persona there is an experienced pro who really knows what he is doing at all times and who knows how to teach the real work of captivating an audience, there is no other magic lecture to compare with a Bob Little lecture
He deserves his Living Legend status

His reputation has grown over the last two decades, and his books and lectures have added a new dimension to coin manipulation while, in their own way, shaping its future.
In this lecture, Kainoa teaches close-up material designed for visual impact, cleanliness of method, and modular climaxes. He will also discuss transforming close-up into stand-up material while sharing the latest coin techniques for both beginners and experts. Alongside material for the novice performer (including even some self-working coin magic), Kainoa will also be presenting routines that will challenge the workers among you. His thinking is considered revolutionary by many of his contemporaries, and he enjoys surprising other magicians by making the most difficult material look easy. With an ease that almost borders on miraculous in itself, Kainoa sets up worlds of fantasy with just a few coins. Or some rings. Or whatever is on hand at the moment. Add all of that to his engaging personality, offbeat sense of humor, and experiences in teaching magic and magic history, and you end up with what will be an unforgettable experience of conjuring.
