Y'know what's funny? The description of this video (posted here) does a very poor job of indicating what a great product this actually is!! This is a recorded lecture Danny gave at some magic club...he called this series his "Working Alone" lecture series. I was lucky enough to see this lecture (with a few changes here and there) at my local club in Tyler, Texas quite some time back.
I like Danny's style. He has a clear and concise way of performing and explaining things. His hands look like they belong to the 3rd guy on the evolution chart......(no insult....I have the smallest hands in the world, and I like it when guys who don't have Ed Marlo's hands are good!!)....he even jokes about his hands on this video!

I loved nearly every effect here.....I wasn't too nuts about the "smelling" effect......I just didn't get a good vibe on that one. The "golf" effect is a beauty.......uses a 3,000 year-old concept and fools magicians 7 days out of 7!

Again, there're a'lot of jewels on this video....I mean it. Danny has a certain "working man" way about him.....but he always comes across as professional and easy-going. Highly recommended.

Fully constructed stand-up and close-up routines - Danny Archer's acclaimed Working Alone Lecture filmed live. These all-new effects from his lecture are fully explained. Danny uses simple props with devastating results.

Stand-up routines include:

Balls - Balls appear, vanish and change color in a fast paced routine.

Triple Threat - A non-gimmicked version of Mental Epic, no playing cards or blackboard needed.

Par For The Course - Predict the score for an imaginary round of golf.

Magic Jeopardy - A lock and key stunner with lots of comedy

Archer Shuffle - A false riffle shuffle that's incredibly deceptive, yet easy to do.

Outfoxed - You reveal five mentally selected cards with no sleights or memorization.

Close-up routines include:

Play It By Ear - An impromptu routine. Anytime, anywhere, anyplace.

Lost and Smelled - You "sniff" out the selection even after they shuffle the deck.

Barrel of Fun - A marked coin in nest routine, but everything is examinable and there are no shuttle passes.
