At the Table Lecture DVD
Out of stock
Jason Ladanye’s approach to magic is simple – not about complicated sleight of hand. Jason looks for original plots and uses time-tested well-known sleights to achieve miracles for laymen. While Jason Ladanye will be teaching a few effects from his last hit book, Confident Deceptions, most of the effects taught on this At the Table Lecture will come from Jason’s upcoming book, Game Changer. This means you have the opportunity to be the first to learn a ton of new hard hitting and unpublished material. These effects are strong, but also incredibly practical and meaningful. Jason teaches how to start clean and end clean with a regular deck of cards and perform magic that spectators will remember forever.
Here are the effects that Jason will be teaching:
Nick of Time – A race against the clock to locate 8 cards in 60 seconds. This one is a real crowd pleaser. It keeps the audience in suspense literally to the last second. This uses regular deck and can be done anytime and anywhere. This is one of the strongest effects in Jason’s next book.
Ladanye’s ACAAN – The performer gives a stunning demonstration of his ability to shuffle track cards. He follows the position of a selection as it changes during the shuffles and cuts. A moment later the performer causes any card to move to any position in the deck with no false moves. A laymen walks away from this effect thinking you’re a serious threat at the card table.
The Big Stack – Here’s an amazing and entertaining gambling routine. Jason stacks Queens, Kings, and Aces in just two shuffles. This gambling routine plays like a magic trick. The spectators can know nothing about poker and still find this routine incredibly fascinating. Wait until you see the reactions.
Game Changer – You play a simple two-card game against the spectator. With money on the line, you end up with your back against the wall. The audience knows you can not win this game, until you cheat in the most unexpected way possible.
Forging Ahead – There are plenty of signature transfer effects out there. Jason’s contribution to this classic plot is to move a spectator’s initials from the FACE of one card, to the FACE of another. This is one of the strongest tricks in his book, Confident Deceptions, and one of the easiest to do!
Lucky Charms – This is an effect that spectators just can’t comprehend. A folded card in view from the beginning ends up being the spectator’s signed selection. The best part is that they never see the ending coming.
Pinky Count – For anyone that’s ever had difficulty with a “Pinky Count”, or simply wanted to learn how to make your “Pinky Count” imperceptible, Jason runs through techniques for you to go from zero to hero!
In addition to teaching all of the mechanics to the effects, Jason will talk shop about effect construction, audience management, misdirection, and how to maximize the impact of every trick. This is not an At The Table Lecture you’ll want to miss.

Before this lecture, I’d only heard about Jason’s work with false deals, shuffles, and gambling routines. As it turns out, this lecture contains a lot of extremely magical routines with manageable sleight of hand. Every trick has a strong, deceptive structure, and the most difficult moves he uses (faros, pinky count, etc) happen at well structured spots in the routines. His “Lucky Charms” was probably my favorite trick in the lecture. It’s a mystery card/ dream card/ card in ringbox, but it’s presented in a way that no lay person would suspect the ending. Jason’s work on the pinky count was very good. I’ve been doing the pinky count for two years, and he had advice that I’m working on applying. This lecture has a lot of value, especially at the price.

Loved the lecture and more importantly, I love the way Jason constructs his effects.
I’ll certainly add Nick of Time in my working repertoire. I can’t wait to add some suspense in my walkaround work, a rarity in magic.
Game Changer is another one of my favorite. I’m impressed by the fact that Jason took a familiar plot (Anniversary Waltz) and found a way to link it to gambling. I wish I had thought of it myself.
All in all, we got very strong effects that will leave our audience speechless.
Thanks for a great lecture!

I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture by Jason Ladanye. He goes through each of the effects he has chosen slowly and brilliantly breaking down and explaining the sleights involved. The effects range from gambling routines to selected card effects that brilliantly demonstrate his style of performance, which if you’re interested in emulating, I highly recommend you watch this lecture.
The effects that Jason has chosen all have strong conclusions and I feel would leave a lasting impression on any participant. Jason also explores his thoughts on presentation and plot behind the effects. Explaining his approach to making participants feel engaged and involved while he performs. With the help of Gregory Wilson they both discuss their approach to creating magic and even give advice on how professional magicians can attempt to get more paid gigs.
The inclusion of Gregory Wilson helps as I feel that the contrast between their two styles of magic help define their individual approach and beliefs as to what is deemed a good or a bad idea in their opinion.
All in all, this is a fantastic lecture with brilliant advice not only about card magic but how to improve your magic act all together. The effects taught go together very well and there is something for everyone to take away from this lecture. For the price I paid I cannot recommend this product enough. I thoroughly enjoyed watching and I can really say I’ve learnt a great deal. What more could you want?
If you have not heard of Jason this is a great place to start. He has a great book out as well.

After seeing Jason’s amazing performances on youtube and witnessing his obvious affinity for the brilliant work of Darwin Ortiz I had to give this lecture a try. I was not disappointed. Jason shares not only superb mechanics and effects, but also shares some great insight into character development, premise building and audience management. As a dedicated card worker myself, I found the material accessible and very inventive. If you love great close up magic, card tricks or just want to grow as an entertainer I can’t recommend this lecture strongly enough. By far one of the best and most meaningful lectures I’ve seen. 10/10

I highly recommend this lecture 10/10, i have purchased a few ATT lectures and this is one of the best ones, Jason does a spendid job at explaining the effects in detail. He also gives great insite to improving your pinky count. This isn’t beginner material but if you practice you will be able to use these effects.

After seeing Jason Ladanye’s superb lecture live in L.A., I had to get this. Three hours plus, stunning routines and diabolical methods… a tremendous value for any magic enthusiast!

Jason Ladanye gave a great at the table lecture. Known for his powerful card magic, he taught six tricks, and gave tips on the pinky count. I will say, for a couple tricks, you will need to be able to perform the Faro Shuffle, which is not easy for some magicians. But all his tricks had unique methods that really surprised me. The one trick I have performed already got great reactions. It was Lucky Charms, which is now a go-to trick for me. So, BUY THIS LECTURE.
