Who is Marc Spelmann?
I have known Marc Spelmann for the last eight years and he is one of those real world
performers who create pure miracles from conception to completion, no pipe dreams, no
fillers, just pure astonishment in every routine.
Marc has been invited to perform for the worlds elite A list, from Eric Clapton,
Lennox Lewis, George Michael, Jack Nicholson, Hugh Grant, Davina McCall, Gerry Halliwell,
Johnny Vaughn and HRH Prince Andrew.
His client list is truly extensive with corporate giants such as Sony, Vodafone,
Columbia Pictures, Jaguar, BMW, Dyson, The BBC, Carlton Television, Channel 4, Channel 5,
Madam Tussauds, Rail Track, Credit Lyonnaise and Amtrak as a mere few of Marcs regular
I managed to finally get Marc to release some of his treasured routines for the magic
community and I have to say that as a magic dealer I cannot remember a book or DVD set
with so many real world routines. Marc has delivered material that knocked everyone out at
the filming. I am confident that anyone of any level who purchases these DVDs will use
Marcs killer routines and principles.
In my opinion Marcs fantastic chair routine One In Thousands, Staple Roulette
and his diabolical approach to the bank night theme The Prize Draw are all
individually worth the price of the entire set of DVDs to a working professional and could
be sold for hundreds of pounds each.
On the day of filming a shattering 31 routines I could not decide which routines
I wanted to ad to my repertoire, I was spoilt for choice, a rarity for any set of DVDs.
The privileged audience who saw the filming firmly believe that every effect was a true
Marc thinks outside of the box and creates workable real world effects that play huge.
I can honestly say that it is an absolute pleasure to be releasing this unbelievable set
and the two and a half year process of finally pinning Marc down has been worth every
second. All of this from someone who is not really known in magic circles and at a young
age for his wisdom, knowledge and maturity with the impossible. Our art will benefit I'm

Volume Two - The Stranger
- 1 in Thousands
Hailed as one of the most incredible chair routines and already in the repertoires of some
of the worlds leading mentalists. Marc has held this back for years and still closes with
it to this day. Four participants, four chairs, four envelopes and a killer surprise in a
routine that literally has a thousand outcomes.
- The Orifices
Marcs variation on an old classic from John Ramsey, taken to a whole new level. Beans are
snorted and regurgitated, the final bean travelling from your ear, under your facial skin
through to your eye socket. Not for the faint hearted.
- Free Call
An absolute killer routine that has fried some of the most distinguished performers. 20 or
so objects are placed into a box, a volunteer is handed a single prediction before
choosing one of the objects as an example the 10p coin is chosen. They open the prediction
that has been in their possession since the beginning to reveal your office phone number,
the number is dialed and the message heard which says "Hi sorry I'm not here to take
your call, please leave a message, if however that is my helpful volunteer you should be
holding a 10p coin."No forces of any kind, no switch of the prediction, the object is
freely selected and clearly predicted.
- Just 15 seconds
A real time word memorisation and divination. 40 to 50 Spectators write long and short
words on a pad, you take the pad and ask someone to time you for just 15 seconds. You
however do not simply call off the words on the pad but instead take it to another level
by divining two randomly selected thought of words.
- Do You Believe?
Coins, keys and pieces of examined cutlery are placed into a glass as you demonstrate mass
psychokinesis, first by slowly moving each piece of cutlery, then moving all of the
cutlery. Finally you get the audience to imagine the glass toppling over at which point it
moves eerily before toppling to the floor. A fork is twisted like string, a coin bent
almost in half and a key bent at right angles.
Marc Spelmanns unique premise to creating unbelievable psychokinesis with practically any
small object. Marcs hands are examined before and after the demonstration and yet he still
moves objects apparently with only the power of his mind. Move a fork, pen, lighter,
business card etc etc etc. This revolutionary technique has already been adopted by some
very knowledgeable performers as the most practical way to mysteriously move objects.
Remember both hands are very freely moved around, quick set up and invisible clean up.
What People Are Saying:
"Marc Spelman is one of those unusual characters that come along
once in a generation who knows how to create an idea in such a way as to create a stunning
performance piece of mentalism, He also knows that presentation is everything."
"The material is first class, easy to understand and most
important of all, highly entertaining. I like your style. friendly, courteous and very
disarming. The material is delightfully commercial. If the viewer doesn't come away with
some of the most workable and entertaining effects I¹ve seen in some time, they should
try stamp collecting."
- Larry Becker
"The effects I saw are very clever and seem to have no
explanation. Marc handles his audience well and leaves them with a very good feeling about
- Richard Osterlind
"Marc Spelmann has an inspired Alchemical knack at combining
ideas and principles in proper measure to create new life. His reworking of classic ideas
and effects will leave you breathless. The Spelmann touch is close to a knock over the
head with a club. It hits you where it counts and leaves you dazed, blurry-eyed, and
excited. Do yourself a favor and study Marcs work, I think you too will find yourself
highly rewarded for your effort."
