1st Annual Senior Pitchman Reunion available now as download!
This is nearly three hours of video taken in November, 2008 at the first “Senior Pitchman’s Reunion” by Whit “Pop” Haydn and Nancy Magill.
Advertised as the “Senior Pitchman’s Reunion: 60 Years old or better–Fakers Only! No NCLs! No 40 Milers!” it took place at the Boulder Station in Las Vegas.
This video is an incredible look into the lives and work of pitchmen and women.
Many of these men and women are multimillionaires from selling svengali decks, slicers and dicers, knives, mice, squirmies, pens and medicine both in front of live crowds and on television. They tell wonderful tales about the joys and pitfalls of their craft, about the methods and tricks, about what it takes to be a pitchman, about how pitches are crafted and learned, about good delivery and timing and–most of all–about what it means to them and why they live the life of the pitchman.
This information is inspiring and helpful not only to potential Svengali or mouse pitchmen, but to anyone who has to gather a crowd, hold their attention and get a certain response from them.
The techniques that work for the pitchmen can be applied to almost any performance. This is like having a chance to meet many of the best and most successful pitchmen in the world, and have them share with you the secrets to their success.
