Carnegie has had the great opportunity to speak about Houdini on many occasions. His main lecture on Houdini is called, "HOUDINI - The Escape King - Lecture." This lecture is a double feature, you learn about his many escapes, stories of success, and even a couple failures. You'll hear stories about famous people who inspired Houdini. And you'll get to see escapes! Escapes from ropes, chains, handcuffs and more.This talk is ideal for historical societies, magic groups, and anyone wanting to learn more about Houdini and see the types of escapes he presented during his life.
Dean Carnegie is not just a historian, he is also a full time magician, escape artist, and speaker. In his lecture you get chance to see Houdini from not just a historians point of view but also that of the magician and escapologist (which can be vastly different).
Today, the lecture incorporates, both the history and actual escapes. There are some well known escapes missing from the lecture. For example, the Milk Can though spectacular, is not a practical escape to present in most places, and the same can be said of the Water Torture Cell. Both, impressive feats, but logistical nightmares. Not to mention, terribly messy with hundreds of gallons of water. So those two actual escapes will be missing from the performance line-up. But they are still discussed and quite a lot of history is shared about these two marvelous creations of Houdini.
