Card Magic Miracles

Here’s a question I get from time to time. Do you just do card tricks?
The short answer is no. This answer is true, convenient and helpful in securing work.
To explain how one entertains with a deck of cards is extremely difficult.

Variety is easier

I do Magic tricks with many items. These items Include Coins, rubber bands, dollar bills, balls and a few more common everyday items.) What you won’t see are props that come from a Magic Shop. These are the type of item that you would not recognize in everyday life. These items send a message to your audience, which is, I could do that if I went to the Magic shop.

That’s Impossible

Whether we perform with cards or coins, at the end of the day we want our spectators to have one thought in their mind… “That can’t be done!” We want to deliver the impossible, with no possible answers.

In reality, I can entertain with just a deck of cards to the satisfaction and over the top response from any lay audience. I’m just glad I don’t have to explain how.

There are just a few Magicians who perform with cards only. One who is exceptional is my friend Paul Gordon from the U.K. Paul is a magician, author, lecturer and motivational speaker. (Paul taught me how to entertain, and not just do “tricks.”)
In private, Magicians use the word “trick” to describe what they do. That includes David Copperfield.
When talking to clients, we use words like close up illusions… anything but “trick”. Most magicians avoid the word “trick” like the plague.
So, if you bring me to your event, I will have a deck of cards… and if you have a moment, I’ll be happy to show you a coin trick.
