"Hannibal combines wonderful magical effects with masterful presentations and storytelling. Watching these DVDs will make your magic stronger."
- Jon Allen
"When learning how I perform magic in restaurants a decade ago, I was offered Jim Sisti's The Magic Menu. Of all the routines I studied, nothing pulled me in like the work of Hannibal. I always wondered what routines like The Pringles Act looked like live. Here is an opportunity to see a TRUE master at work. This set should be in EVERY MAGICIAN'S library."
- Eric Jones
"That was just delightful!"
- Max Maven
"The Pringles Act is pure genius."
- Anthony Asimov
"A perfect combination of mystery, comedy and emotion. Hannibal is one of magic's premier storytellers who will pull your heartstrings and surprise you with real mystery along the way. His take on 'The Bill in Lemon' is one of the best theatrical presentations for this effect you will ever see!"
- Scott Robinson
"Hannibal is a great magician but, more importantly, he's a master entertainer. He connects with his audience in a way few others understand. He 'gets it'. And you will understand that when you see this video. I am first in line for this."
