Anthony Owen is known as one of the most influential creators in the field of mentalism, and many of his original plots and effects are featured in the repertoires of the most famous and respected performers in the field. Mr. Owen is also acknowledged as an expert in the realm of television magic, having produced some of the most memorable content for Derren Brown, John Archer, Pete Firman, and dozens of others. Now, for the first time, Anthony has authored a hardbound collection—the definitive collected works—of his lifetime in magic.
Anthony has created magic and mentalism with business cards, playing cards, borrowed objects, and more. The focus in Secrets is on parlor material, which should be a refreshing surprise for those of us who are constantly in search of good material for large groups. Anthony’s material is almost always interactive, and focused on premise rather than technique. There’s always a fascinating wrinkle to Anthony’s presentations. You’ll learn a routine based around a game show, a diabolical card trick you can watch from underneath, dozens of other fantastic routines that don’t require tremendous practice.
