This year’s Magician of the Year (Canadian Association of Magicians) is back with a brand new lecture:

Pack Smart Play Anywhere.

"I am completely obsessed when it comes to the Pack Smart Play Anywhere lifestyle. The basic philosophy is rooted in the idea that it’s better to fill a stage with personality and entertainment rather than large props and paraphernalia. I will show you, with practical examples, how to stretch and pull every ounce of entertainment out of your props, your script and interaction to deliver a show that is high on impact and low on luggage. This lecture could change your opinions, your show and possibly your life."

- Bill Abbott

The lecture includes:

  • 6 complete stand-up routines including general magic, geek magic and mentalism. Everything is performed and fully explained.
  • The theory of the Pack Smart Play Anywhere approach, examined and demonstrated during the performance.
  • How to develop your own Pack Smart Play Anywhere show to take with you on your next flight, throw into the glove box of your car or perform at your next paid function.
  • and more...

Bill was hooked and in the years since, his magic has taken him across Canada and Western Europe. Over the past 18 years, he has been in constant demand for private parties, corporate functions and special events, becoming one of the most sought-after experts in this unique field of entertainment.

The locations of these events are a list of top establishments from Toronto to Montreal and New York to London, England and everything in between. From celebrities to close friends, Bill prides himself on performing a unique show for each audience.

He participated in the award-winning documentary Sleight of Mind and has made numerous television appearances, including a stint on Talk TV, where one of his illusions caused host Ben Mulroney to flee the studio, screaming, "I've been violated!"

Bill is also the 2012 Canadian Magician of the Year, as awarded by the Canadian Association of Magicians.
