I've designed this presentation to start an ambitious card routine:

A boy (a card) got inside Hell, the deck. Two red queens, his guardian angels, then rescued him (the ace shake trick). To protect him, they gave him a blessing; whenever the boy would enter Hell, he would automatically be transported to the surface. And then, the ACR starts.

What do you think about this? I know it sounds very stupid, but can you help me make the plot more interesting and believable?

I don't know, ACR for me doesn't really need any patter, it simply speaks for itself. It's one of those universally understood effects... if a card goes in the middle, and a moment later it's on the top, it's very, very magical. If you have a spectator sign a card, and just go into it, without any explanation, the effect is easily understood.

I've thought that coming up with patter would help, but it doesn't work for me. However, if you really do want patter, you've got a great start...I like the idea of a the boy always escaping hell. What if the little boy sets out a journey to find happiness, ends up in Hell, or a bad part of town, and gets help (like you have so far). But the boy discovers that happiness was already back home (the top of the deck), so no matter where he goes, true happiness is home. Home is where the heart is, you know?
