During these sessions I will offer the same services I do in my role as one of the two magic consultants on Fool Us: addressing technical problems, punching up scripts, examining blocking and staging concerns, strengthening the clarity of the effect, and much, much more. You will get thousands of dollars worth of help and advice.

Whether or not you plan on auditioning for Fool Us, this is your opportunity to take your existing material to the next level.

Mahdi Gilbert says,

"Michael Close made my national television debut on Penn & Teller: Fool Us a huge success! When I landed in Vegas, Michael brought me to his room and we worked out how I would perform a piece of close-up magic from my working repertoire into the best eight minutes of the series.
"Truthfully, I must attribute a lot of my success on the program to Michael Close. His intuitive understanding of how to adapt magic for television audiences is a huge asset for anyone aiming to perform on television. The lines we created together are so good they have effectively replaced my old script for the piece. Lastly, the most profound element of the effect, having a spectator interlace her fingers for the Oil & Water routine, was Michael’s suggestion. I cannot recommend Michael Close highly enough and would be lucky to collaborate with him again."
Ben Seidman says,
"Michael Close will make you a better magician, period. I learned so much from reading and watching the Workers series, but as with many great magicians, learning in person is far superior. Unlike many teachers, Michael has years of full-time professional performance experience. This experience, his creativity, and his deep understanding of structure make Michael’s thoughts on magic invaluable."
