[b]What The Audience Sees:[/b]

[i]ďCan someone please explain to us how Jamie has managed to sneak into every movie Iíve ever seen, since I was a kid, and remember them all?! Because thatís the only way he could have known! Listen, he had these cool business cards printed, right, because he collects autographs or something. I mean, theyíre blank except for a picture of a movie screen. Anyways, I write down a movie that only I know Iíve seen, onto the card and place it FACE DOWN into his hand. He cannot see it! To prove the point, he even slides it back into the middle of the stack of business cards. And thenÖBLAM!ÖHe names my movie! HOW? Thank goodness he gave me his card- Iím calling him for my next party!Ē[/i]


[b]How It Went:[/b]

You know, Iíve been meaning to write this one up for some time but Iíve been unintentionally delayed. I really wanted to see how it would play at an actual paid gig and, even though Iíve done a few hundred since Iíve gotten this effect, Iíve always forgotten to take it with me. Doh! Double Doh! This trick is great! It takes up the exact same amount of pocket space that I normally designate for business cards, but I now have a great closing effect for my set. I sincerely wish I had it for all those other times.

I think I made up for it on Friday, though as I used it dozens of times to great effect. What I like about it is that itís super clean. I mean, youíre basically looking at a stack of business cards and an elastic band. Thatís it. No wallet, clipboard, helmet transmitters, etc. Just a small stack of cards. No folding required! Hurrah! Not that Iím lazy, but at gigs, I really want to not have to worry. And Sneak Preview is worry free.

The reactions were right on point as well. I can always tell if somethingís gone exceedingly well when the spectators start addressing each other. They wanted to know if we were in on it and all the pressure is on the spec defending himself that we werenít in cahoots, lol. Awesome.


[b]The Difficulty:[/b]

Man, like, what, [b]1/5[/b]? Do your eyes move? Sweet, then you can do this.


[b]Best Lines:[/b]

[b][i]ďPeter! PETER! Do you guys know each other?!?!! ANSWER ME!Ē[/b][/i]
~Poor Peter was in for a rough night I think.

[b][i]ďWere you there?![/i][/b]
~At Ben Hur?! Um, no.


[b]Angry Bob Rating:[/b]

For those of you reading this article for the first time, Angry Bob is a co-worker who has an understanding of some magic because his uncle was a magician. Angry Bob knows that TTís exist, for example, but he has no desire to become a magician himself. He also has an anger management problem that can be experienced first hand if he canít figure out how a trick is done. A high rating means he has no idea.

Letís just all be thankful that Angry Bob doesnít show up at any of these functions. Could you imagine?! With regards to this, however, Iíd say pretty high. Thereís a flash of the stack that is really nice, and takes people away from the cards. Maybe a [b]4/5[/b]? I'm not worried.


[b]My Rating:[/b]

[i]Magic Friday Approved[/i]!

I owe myself an apology for not taking this out sooner. Itís gone into my Suit Jacket- the ultimate rating!

[b]Closing Thoughts:[/b]

Someone e-mailed me and mentioned that they couldnít watch my video reviews because they live in a mountain cabin, so it looks like weíre back to the old format-written and video. I hope you like it!


[i][b]Have a Great Week Everyone![/b][/i]
