Commercial Carney DVD

Magic from Carneycopia. Includes an Aces up the Sleeve routine, a very direct version of the Oil and Water plot with a great finish, a prediction effect with cards, a flashy production of four jokers which change to aces, pieces of paper magically jump off the floor and on to a knife blade, and a coins across routine using bullets, climaxing with a bang and the performer catching the bullet in his teeth. This is great, commercial magic.

Classic Carney DVD

More magic from Carneycopia. Includes the Napkin Trilogy, an impromptu animated matchbox, a revolutionary display for changing the colors of cards, a chop cup routine with a borrowed bill and a coffee cup, climaxing with the appearance of a lemon around the bill, a visible Triumph effect and the impossible bare handed vanish and reproduction of two coins.

Chicarnery DVD

Further magic from Carneycopia. An Everywhere and Nowhere routine with a surprising finish, a Borrowed Bill in Pen routine, the production of a pack of cards, the penetration of a stack of quarters through a spectator's hand, a color change routine with cards, and the clean and amazing transposition of the red and black aces.
