The magician displays a group of what appear to be normal, two-sided playing cards. However, the cards are then shown to have four sides, three sides, two sides, and even one side! The last card, while held in the spectator’s hand, is found to have no sides at all!
Joshua Jay’s Side Show comes complete with everything you’ll need to start performing Side Show in no time, including cards specially printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company and detailed instructions fully illustrated by Tony Dunn.
The performer displays two packets of face-down cards, each packet containing four cards. One packet is red-backed and the other is blue-backed. The packets are tabled, and a spectator is allowed to select either the red or blue packet. Whichever packet he selects is used. There is no magician's force. The spectator is asked to imagine that his packet consists of four face-down queens. Once this is done, he is to think of any one of the four queens - hearts, clubs, spades, or diamonds. Again, this is a totally free choice! A second spectator is now directed to concentrate on the remaining four-card packet, and, like the first spectator, is allowed to think of a different queen. Now, without touching the cards, the performer claims he has caused the two selections to trade places. The first spectator names his card, the performer spreads his packet, and the queen he merely thought of is reversed face up in the packet. This astounding feat is repeated with the second spectator's queen! And there's more! The performer points out that if each of the spectator's queens really traveled across, then the backs of the selected queen would also have traveled across. The face-up queen in the red packet is turned over - it has a blue back! Now the face-up queen in the blue packet is turned over - it has a red back! The effect is truly unbelievable. And there is still more! The performer points out that it is very interesting that the two spectators selected the particular two queens they did. BECAUSE THE REST OF THE CARDS ARE NOT EVEN QUEENS AT ALL - THEY ARE JOKERS! And you turn them all face up to prove it!
Comes complete with a detailed booklet of crystal-clear instructions and illustrations and all the necessary cards (specially printed on Bicycle stock) to perform the effect. Also Available in Jumbo Size ( 5" by 7" ) with blank face cards instead of jokers.
This amazing souvenir card may be fully examined-the pips don't move!
Comes complete with the necessary, specially-printed Bicycle card and detailed, fully-illustrated instruction booklet.
A spectator is asked to freely shuffle a deck of cards. The mentalist displays a book on divination, explaining that he has been studying Cartomancy-the ancient system of telling fortunes with playing cards.
An envelope is then given to the participant to hold and the performer says, "Even though we've never met before, inside this envelope is a Cartomantic reading that I've prepared just for you. Let's see if the system works!"
The top five cards of the shuffled pack are taken and displayed by being inserted into the edge of the book. The spectator is told to choose any of the five cards. The selected card is, for example, the four of clubs. The four unchosen cards are shown to be all different. When the fortune message is removed from the envelope, it reads:
"You have a compassionate nature and strong leadership potential. Your sense of humor is admired by others. Your lucky card is the four of clubs!"
Includes detailed, 8-page booklet written by Phil Goldstein and fully-illustrated by Tony Dunn and the five specially-printed cards on Bicycle stock that make this effect possible.
This is truly one of the greatest magic tricks ever invented. With just a little practice, you will be able to perform a miracle. The effect is that you borrow a dollar bill and roll it into a loose ball which is then placed onto the open palm of one of your hands. The bill rises up off your hand and then floats from hand to hand. Your hands circle around the floating bill, dispelling any thought on how it might work. The bill is then handed back for complete examination.
Supplied with special gimmick & illustrated book of instruction.
