Jasper Blakeley is a full time entertainer who just happens to be a magician. As a trained actor, Jasper has combined these skills with his love of magic to create unique walkabout, cabaret and stage characters, his most famous being the Monrokvian Mind-Reader & Magician - Kockov. As a headlining stand-up comic on the UK comedy circuit, Jasper has developed a performance style that attempts to bring mentalism and magic into an adult comedy arena.

Even though he's created more than several dozen characters, Jasper still gets booked to perform as himself in the usual close-up walkabout situations such as weddings and corporate events. As an experienced children's entertainer, close-up magician, cabaret and stage mentalist, stand-up comic, actor and character performer, Jasper's lecture guarantees to give something to everyone. Combine this performance experience with Jasper's original mentalist effects - as seen on the Alakazam/Kockov DVD releases 'Plunge of Death' & 'Dialabolical -plus his mentalist cabaret release 'Flown Away', and this is a lecture that hopes to be as entertaining as it is informative.

The Lecture

The emphasis will strongly be on the importance of performance in all aspects of magic. Plus creating laughter. Looking at the core values of Jasper's ethos - Control, Flexibility & Change, he will use these themes to discuss his approach and tips on working close-up private & corporate events, concentrating mainly on working tables and overcoming all problems and eventualities.

If there are children's entertainers in the audience, Jasper will fully explain his M.A.P. System (memorise any person) - the cornerstone to having total control at a kid's party - learning everyone's name. He'll also explain in full how he has created the skills & tools to have regularly controlled and entertained up to 150 children for a full 2 hour party.

 Performance Aspect

Jasper (as Kockov) will perform several of his mentalist cabaret effects and will explain them in full. Please note that Jasper will be performing his favourite effect 'Flown Away'.

 If you have money to spend, at the end of the lecture it's your chance to purchase Jasper's Lecture notes along with full notes on his M.A.P. System. If time has allowed you'll also be able to purchase his lecture-exclusive 'P.O.P. Book Test' - a real world worker.

Jasper will show you his full walkabout/commercial/corporate close-up magic act and all the nuances that go with it.

Jasper will explore the importance of confidence and he intends to provide (those that feel they lack some confidence) some incredible tools to truly change the way you approach magical performance. Jasper always guarantees that everyone who attends will leave with some invaluable knowledge that they can use in the real world. For those interested in cabaret performances, or those close-up people who're trying to put together a stage show, Jasper is offering a unique opportunity. For everyone attending the workshop, Jasper will explain and teach (in full) his brand new effect 'Flown Away'. This cabaret effect gets great reactions from some amazing fulltime workers - and retailing at £40 , you'll learn the whole secret here as part of the lecture, straight from its' creator.
