My all new lecture for 2015
featuring more great, fun magic you will use from my friends and me! The lecture will include performances
and explanations of some of the below material. Also any questions you may have
on any of the material from the past lectures just ask!!
- “Something Borrowed Something New”
Jack Carpenter You’ll be doing some amazing visual magic with very
little effort and a freely selected card. You’ll love this!
- “Misdirection:The Way of The Monkey” David Kuraya David sent me a
clip of this strange and wonderful effect and I HAD to have it for the notes!
As David says “This is perhaps the strangest thing I have been playing with
with recently. It’s a
work in progress, but at Tom’s
request, I am happy to share it” You’ll be happy he did too!
Ribbon” Trent James My lousy name for a great very quick,
very visual stand up piece with a ribbon. It fooled me and will fool you.
You’ll love doing this one.
the Odds” Patrick Flanagan One simple strong entertaining demonstration
in “cheating at cards” that you can use to lead into another routine or as a
stand alone effect.
- “Whitewall” Jeff
wonderful simple concept limited only by your imagination that turns your
iPhone/Smartphone into an even more magical device. Heck it’s so simple even I
can do it!
- “Turkish Ice Cream Sandwich” Curtis
Kam In Curtis’ own words: “No doubt you've seen that video of a Turkish ice cream
salesman relentlessly pranking his customers with manipulations of cones and
ice cream that defy anticipation, not to mention American food safety laws.
Decades before that video went viral, I came across a wonderful dodge in R.
Paul Wilson's The Red-Headed League in which cards vanish from plain sight only
to reappear in the deck, sandwiching a selection. Starting there, I put
together a three-phase routine that jerks the audience around by its collective
nose almost as mercilessly as a Turkish ice cream salesman.”
Poker” Tom Dobrowolski A four card Poker game I developed to
sell to casinos to make BILLIONS!! 4 players 4 cards 4 Rules “4” loads of fun!
Card Flip” Joe Cole 2 selected cards, found 2 ways, found 2 times
and 2 much fun 2 do!!
You “Wynnn” in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”
Tom Dobrowolski With just 3 coins I hit the Jackpot
and then just as quickly hit the road busted out. You’ll learn a few easy move
and displays that will make you look like you have Curtis Kam “Palms of Steel”.
As One,Two,Three” John Carey An excerpt from John’s wonderful new
book “Crafted with Carey” this piece is a combination of the classic inversion
plot, married with Paul Cummins fantastic “Flasher” premise from his lecture
notes “FASDIU”. If you haven’t yet you should buy John’s book.
- “One To-Go Box Please!” Jeremiah Zuo A
visual pun for the magically inclined.
Two selected cards. One is found
in between two jokers which come out of the box. The second is found inside a box which came
out of the two jokers.
