This is a great trick to perform for 2 spectators. Requires minor prep, but is a pretty amazing looking trick and fools every time.

This might sound crazy, but I’m not a huge fan of “traditional” magic DVD’s and videos. I know, here I am pitching magic videos and downloads, so it must sound like I’ve flipped my lid, but let me explain.
I’m sure you’ve seen those “Magic Secrets Revealed” shows where they show the audience how to do some stage illusion out there, and I suppose you’ve always wondered if that means that everyone will know how your tricks are done and no one will be amazed, etc. Well I’m here to dispel that whole myth.
I’ve heard it said the you should learn 3 tricks extremely well rather than learn many tricks well enough. I suppose this depends on what you want to do with your magic.
I don’t own an iPhone, I own one of the Android phones. I like my phone and will continue to work with the Android platform. Nothing against iPhones, it’s just not my thing. Anyway, there are a number of “magic tricks” available for the iPhone (or so I’ve seen), but there’s nothing similar (yet) for the Android device. The question is, are the worth it?
When you tell people you’re a magician, you get a multitude of reactions, one of which is “I hate magic”. It usually shocks some magicians that some people out there dislike magic. But it’s not because these people don’t want to be entertained, it stems for a variety of reasons.
I can’t recall the first trick or magician I had seen, but I do have vague memories of being a volunteer for a magic show performed by…the Burger King. Yup, the Burger King. I must have been about 11 or so and I had to pop balloons with my pointed fingers (in the shape of a gun), and then a dove appeared. Ooo.

This truly is my favorite trick. It was the first trick I learned, but it was so simple and amazing, it had to be learned. The secret is pretty genius, and you should be doing this shortly after learning it. Angles are somewhat important with this, but nothing too serious.

Another 4 card trick that actually uses 4 cards. I know it’s overstressed, but it’s always important to make the distinction first just to allay any suspicion. And although it can be done with a card other than the 4, it gives you a reason to show a 4 and emphasize without making it sound over the top. A lot of magic in this little trick, and a great crowd pleaser.
