With Look to the Cards, after a sealed deck is riffle shuffled multiple times, piles are dealt and mixed based on the values of a series of turned over cards. At the end, all the red cards are facing one way and the blacks the other way except for the two selected cards.
Imagine an oil and water effect where alternating reds and blacks join together with no detectable sleight. Perform Rewinding Time and you'll amaze them even in slow motion.
In Theatrical Debut, a magic show is acted out with playing cards and told in verse with a finale that will earn you real applause.
Perform The Book of Destiny, a blending of music and sleight of hand, and earn the reputation as an artistic card handler.
How about a feat of mentalism where the blindfolded magician deduces the contents of three different colored envelopes and identifies which spectator holds them. It's all done with Triple Psychometry.
Is it possible to perform a version of "Out of this World" where the deck is genuinely riffle shuffled several times? Read ESP Duel to learn this sleight-free miracle.
A performance of Snatched From the Middle will demonstrate your ability to repeatedly deal a card from the center of the deck with one hand!
With Coins From Shanghai, practice alchemy as you change silver to gold and gold to copper all in the palm of your hand.
Counting to three couldn't be more amusing and puzzling than you'll see in A Curious Type of Arithmetic where the audience can't keep track of the number, color, and size of the balls in a hat.
Stun your audience instead of confuse them with my version of the classic Cups and Balls performed with a rhyming script and with moves that your audience can logically follow.
The World's Greatest One Ball Trick is the old sponge ball trick on steroids. It's a complete baffling routine with unique moves and a surprise ending.
The Enchanted Rings is one of the most requested effects I perform. It's a six ring routine recited in verse and taught with nearly a hundred photos.
Aunt Tilly's Will is a magical vignette with audience participation. As the will is read, clues are given which help the spectator solve a seemingly impossible riddle.
Stump the spectator every time with Archimedes Monte. Four pegs sink and one floats. Out of five covered glasses they can't seem to find the only one with the floating wooden peg. Then they can't find one of the four glasses with the sinking token.
The Buried Treasure of Triangle Island is a self-working prediction effect based on a mathematical theorem from the time of Galileo. Despite incredible odds, the spectator discovers the site of the treasure.
