The Can-Am Conjuring Lecture Series proudly presents...
The Christian Engblom Lecture Tour

Christian Engblom is a magician who became known to cardicians around the world for the creation of a unique move, the anti-faro, an extraordinary move that literally unshuffles the deck.

The award winning Engblom (one of the three "Fat Brothers," alongside Dani DaOrtiz and Miguel Angel Gea) has had an interesting and varied career in magic, having performed throughout Europe and the United States (and now Canada).

He specializes in close-up magic as well as card magic, and spends a good deal of his time performing at corporate events, private functions, on cruise ships, on TV, and at festivals and convention all around the world.

As a competitor, Christian has won a variety of awards for his close-up magic, including the coveted Close-up Finnish Championships in 2003.

Since 1999, Christian has participated in Las Jornadas de Cartomagia de El Escorial, in Spain (only for invited participants).

Since 2001 he has lectured for magicians all over the world, and in 2008, he joined as visiting lecturer for the Gran Escuela de Magia Ana Tamariz magic school in Madrid.

He has performed multiple engagements at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, and most recently participated in the Genii Convention in Orlando, Florida where both his performance and lecture were met with standing ovations.

It is with great pride that we have been able to bring his lecture to the Pacific Northwest on the 2016 season of The Can-Am Conjuring Lecture Series.

Here is some of the feeback I received from the different clubs:

“Christian’s lecture was one of the best of the year. No… one of the best, ever! The theory and psychology behind every action was expertly explained in great detail. He left no rock unturned.”

- Dave Buck

 “I’ve just seen an extraordinary lecture. Christian Engblom’s credentials promised the best, but sometimes anticipation builds unrealistic expectations. Christian surmounted this problem by delivering even more than expected. Every trick he did fooled the room, without exception, and every trick was real-world practical. The professional insights Christian included with his explanations were even more valuable than the tricks. All this is the product of not only a full-time working magician, but also of a man who thinks deeply and astutely about his magic. I unhesitatingly recommend him to you.”                                                                                                                                                                    

- Stephen Minch

"Christian Engblom goes far beyond the boundaries of the usual magic lecture with a warm conversational style; he is both personally engaging and displays a refreshing and thoughtful balance between the challenges of live performance as an end result of serious reflection upon accepted theory and surprisingly clever innovations.
 - Charlie Rousseau

“Christian’s lecture yesterday was absolutely terrific! I’ve seen his lecture three times now; it is always different, and never fails to garner great reviews, and thunderous applause. I never get tired of watching this guy!”

- Evan Shuster

“I thought the lecture was great!  Strong magic and practical theory.”
- Jay Frasier
