Richards often jokes that he's the most successful magic creator
no one has ever heard of. As the founder and former owner
of Elmwood Magic, Paul often worked behind the scenes to polish
and produce magic with a long list of notables including:
Jay Sankey, Peter Duffie, Cameron Francis, Mark Elsdon, Joshua
Jay, and Jon Allen, just to name a few. Many of these creations
went on to become worldwide best sellers in magic. In 2014,
he sold Elmwood Magic and stepped away from general magic
retail to focus solely on performing and creating magic.
may have seen Paul's booth crowded by magicians at events
across the globe but you may not know that his material has
received rave reviews from such luminaries as Jeff McBride,
Dean Dill, Paul Green, Alain Nu, and Mike Close. Paul is a
regular attendee of the prestigious invitation only 4F Convention
and his magic has appeared in numerous publications including
MAGIC Magazine, Genii, South America's Mystica Magazine, Magicseen,
and the Linking Ring (for which he won Best Parade of the
this fun and surprising lecture, Paul fully explains several
of his pet secrets which include his eye popping coin in balloon,
an impromptu card rise that plays to a huge audience, a wild
transposition using crayons, a progressively impossible prediction,
a utility card move with vast possibilities, and much more!
Paul hopes you will join him for what promises to be a lecture
you will long remember - but dont take our word
"Paul Richards is an extremely clever magician. He
creates practical, useable, and amazing magic - don't miss
the chance to see his excellent lecture." Joshua Jay
those of you who only know Paul Richards as an ace demonstrator
you're missing out on half the story. Pauls excellent
demonstrations are the result of years of performing experience,
which is evident in his lectures. The material he teaches
is superb, combining commercial effects with clever methods.
This is magic you will use to entertain real people
as well as fool your magician friends. Marc DeSouza
had a blast watching your lecture, Paul. Every effect has
worker stamped on it. Superb material mate! John Carey
Richards is multi-talented. First, he has deeply studied our
craft. Second, he can do inside and esoteric stuff,
which he expertly sizes to fit the realities of the real
world. If he had another middle name it would be commercial.
That is, he knows what sells and how to sell it and how to
make the magic work for you. Jon Racherbaumer
and smart magic you WILL perform! Marcus Eddie
Richards original material will amaze and entertain any audience.
My suggestion is that you learn what he has to teach and perform
it for your audiences
.before he does! Eric DeCamps
effects are great, well routined, and very visual. I always
look forward to your next routine to come out. Keep up the
great work! Greg Frewin
just finished reading your material and all I can say is WOW!
This is one of the best parades Ive ever read; full
of good, practical, and strong magic. Bob King
have watched and enjoyed Paul performing his magic over many
years, and he always entertains and fools me. If you get a
chance to see him lecture or perform, you will not be disappointed.
Richards is an experienced performer with chops.
I have witnessed him perform magic with flawless perfection.
He will amaze you. Dan Garrett
highly recommend all to attend a lecture by Paul Richards.
Why? Simply because of his refreshing approach to magic. Pauls
combination of witty presentation and smooth sleight of hand
is a treat to watch! Mike Gallo
nailed everyone when the missing aces were found to have joined
the leader ace previously placed onto his shirt! (Referring
to a performance at the 4F Convention) Mike Powers
is one of the brightest and strongest lecturers in magic.
His material and ideas are top drawer, ranging from the simple
to highly advanced work; and Paul presents all of it very
effectively. Jack Greenberg (Former IBM International
Richards, offered his material and demonstrated it flawlessly.
His stuff is material you could really put into a working
close-up show. All real workers. John Mendoza
Richards' lecture is truly refreshing - his effects hit the
hearts of his audience in all the right spots. He teaches
you how to perform real world magic with a surprising use
of psychology and clever technique. Eric Eswin (Honorary
President of FISM)
