Hi all!

I'm looking for a lecture recommendation, either Penguin Live or At the Table Live, but I have a few things I'm not looking for as well and I was hoping some of you could weigh in.

First, I'd like it to be card intensive, preferably table work, possibly informal in handling, as in not a lot of flourishes and even messy handling okay. Also, not super sleight intensive.  I like sleights and love to learn them, but I'm not really in the market for an Alan Ackerman or Jack Carpenter lecture just now (maybe later).  That's not to say I'm avoiding lectures with a number of sleights. I'd welcome that, just not as the meat of the presentation.

Also I'm looking for someone I may not be familiar with. They don't have to be a household name in magic. So here's a list of magicians I've watched and enjoyed with the caveat that I'd like to see something different: Dani DaOrtiz, Joe Barry, Lennart Green, John Carey, Mike Powers, Cameron Francis, Woody Aragon, Ryan Schlutz, Ben Train, Andi Gladwin and Garrett Thomas.

Looking forward to suggestions.
Thanks

I hear you. I'm a simiar situation.

If you haven't, check Jon Armstrong and Johsua Jay. All great lectures. Look at the contents and pick which you prefer, won't be gone either way. Practical stuff that I use. Jon Armtrong's 1000$ Card trick is rare that its great on stage and open mics. 

For a none-house hold name (yet), I think you'll enjoy Adam Elbaum's Penguin lecture.   

I've been out of the loop, others may fill in if newer lectures fit your bill.

My recommendation is subscribe to Reel Magic Magazine. There you will find dozens of lectures in addition to everything else. The cost? $5.00 a month, cancel at any time. No brainier.

If you already are a subscriber then you know.

Another suggestion is if you haven't attended and received recordings of TMF Live and TMF Live 2, contact Rudy Tinoco and purchase them.  They are pretty cheap and you'll get more than your money's worth.

For me, you can't go wrong with John Carey. Great card magic, direct, sleight light and practical in the real world. On top of that, he is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.
Vanishing Inc have a couple of his lectures and his Alakazam Academy courses are fantastic.

I enjoyed the Jim Krenz Penguin lecture. He studied with Tamariz and his work on the TPC is really good. Search "5 for $99"
