Jason Rodgers

Excellent. The material is all first class but all the tips and tid-bits that Mark goes over is really where the genius of this course comes through. He says a couple of times that he, "Goes off on tangents" but the info and advice he's giving on those tangents is worth the price of the course. Truly a thoughtful and innovative thinker and it comes through in spades.

Bartholomew Simpson

Amazing! This was the first time I saw Mark teach, and it was excellent! It was also my first academy class, but if they are all like this, I'll be signing up for more. Even on the things I knew, Mark provided some valuable tips, and actually usable (in my opinion - comedy is always hard and subjective) jokes. I mainly signed up for the chop cup - which I had been working on and now feel like I'll have a performance ready routine with a few additions from his teaching. But I feel like the rest was great as well.

Austin Siviter

This was my first Academy. The event was professional throughout. Mark's lecture was excellent. I first met him a South Shields Magic Festival when he compered the Gala Show, so it was great to see he again tonight. He presented everything in clear simple terms with humility, which to a hobbyist is inspirational. Thank you.

Sandy Wilson

Mark James presents a hugely enjoyable and varied selection of magic in this Academy lecture. Each routine has clearly been road tested through many hours of performance, and Mark’s considerable experience shines through here. While the routines themselves are great, there is also much discussion on the little things that we as performers can often forget or overlook, tips on performance, stagecraft, and why performing a particular move one way is better than doing it another. Mark has clearly put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and there is something here for everyone, newbie, hobbiest or pro. There are no pipedreams here – this is all practical, workable material that anyone can use. This course is excellent value for money, and highly recommended.

David Thomas

The magic and explanations were excellent. I also particularly enjoyed the performance tips - not just the performance of these tricks, but general tips about preparation, pacing, mindset and audience control. Highly recommended.
