I was begging Rich Marotta, on your behalf, to make more of his Mugged routines for us before he goes back to Spain, and he obliged.
As a bonus, while he was at his storage facility he found a few of the original Derek Dingle “Last Lecture Notes” that he and Simon Lovell wrote after Derek passed away. It was a limited numbered edition of 300. These were the extra copies that were printed at the time so they are not numbered or signed. I added letters to them and initialed them, so they cannot be forged as a numbered edition.
You will also find some exclusive coins below. Very limited quantity.
Later tonight I will make my first appearance on the Masters Of Illusion TV series. They allowed me to share a sneak peek of the beginning of my routine… Just before the magic begins.
It will be obvious that it’s the opening to my Twisting Arm Illusion.
►Derek Dingle’s Last Lecture Notes:
After Derek Dingle passed away his wife Shelly Carroll and his two friends Simon Lovell, and Rich Marotta decided to put together a special set of lecture notes which featured the routines Derek performed most often. These are basically his favorite routines.
Routines include: Derek’s Thoughts On The Ambitious Card, The F.B. Pass, New Wave Cigarette Through Quarter, Coins Across, Derek’s Ring Flight, The Collector’s, Derek Dingle Fabulous Jumping Card Trick, The Sympathetic Cards, Inflation, and Simon And Derek Transport The Whispering Queen!

►Eisenhower Churchill CS Set:
A copper/silver coin is a classic magic coin gaff where one side of the coin is a silver coin and the other is a copper coin.
This three-coin set is unique and the first of its kind. It uses a real US Eisenhower Dollar and a copper plated and antiqued 1965 Winston Churchill Queen Elizabeth Commemorative Crown coin which is the same size as US Eisenhower or Morgan Dollars. In this condition, the copper coin looks similar to the traditional English penny on one side and a Churchill profile on the other. The coins are large and heavy for maximum visibility.

►BACK IN STOCK:
A funny stand-up routine that is right out of Rich Marotta’s comedy club act. The premise is of the magician being mugged. The robber takes your money, your ring and your watch. Magically at the end of the routine the money is back in your wallet, the ring is on your finger and your watch is back on your wrist. And the moral of the routine is: Never rob a magician!

►OUR LATEST RELEASE:
Routines with impossible objects as their surprise ending always over-perform. This is one of Michael Rubinstein’s favorites.
The basic routine features you handing two coins to your friends for examination (a Quarter and a Penny) as you explain the different metals they are made of.
You then place the Penny on top of the Quarter and after a little squeeze the penny sinks into the quarter and is fused inside. The odd new coin can then be examined.
You pick up the coin, give it a little shake and the penny falls out leaving everything examinable and ordinary.

PS: Next Saturday will be my first live lecture in many years, and I am very excited to present some new material and some old stuff I never lectured on before. Also just finished three new video tutorials that will be part of an exclusive lecture package.
