^ You'd think he'd at least have a link to the Café on his web site!... he has an item in the Commercials section called 'Triumph International'; I presume it's based on the Vernon routine.

you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.

Ha Ha! What a con job! You got us all to look at the video of some starving wannabe. A little angry that I wasted my time, but I have to laugh because I can appreciate the con.
Good job, liar!

Can anyone tell me how I can contact Mr. Forte, if this really was his work? Some of you seem to be saying it might not be Mr. Forte. I was really impressed, though, and have always wanted to take lessons from a real gambler like the video. So help me if you can please, with an address for the gambler in the youtube video, even if he is someone else and not Steve Forte, just better than him, or as good...

thanks for your help, Paul

I thought that the video was a joke and the work was sloppy and disrespectful. I would bet BIG money that this was absolutely NOT Steve Forte performing. Come on… Steve was MUCH better than this more than forty years ago! The few bits that were well done were probably taken from somewhere else - perhaps the opening sequence to the movie Shade.

If I were to give OJ the benefit of the doubt, I would say that he was misinformed about the origin of the video and he passed this misinformation on to others. Having said that, my gut tells me that he’s a wannabe sleight of hand student that needs a LOT MORE PRACTICE and he was just trying to dupe others into believing that he’s as good with a deck of cards as Steve Forte. If that’s the truth… SHAME ON YOU!!! You obviously have no clue how shabby your card technique is and how insulting it is to a master like Steve Forte for you to disrespect him by associating your slop with his name and reputation. There, I've said it and I'm proud!

If my last post appeared harsh, it’s because feel that I was duped with a lie into wasting my time watching something that was not what it was claimed to be. I have the utmost respect for Steve Forte and not only do I think that he’s a great guy, but he’s the best sleight of hand artist with a deck of cards that I have ever seen in my life. I’ll say it again. Steve Forte is the best sleight of hand artist with a deck of cards that I have ever seen in my life.

The most valuable thing I have is my time. I would spend hours upon hours of my time (and I have) watching and admiring video footage of Steve Forte doing what he does best. I feel insulted because I was duped with a lie into wasting my time watching a hack.

Clearly this is not footage of Steve Forte... just look at the hands. The fingers are much longer and thinner than Steve's hands, at least compared to any of the videos that I've seen of his work.

Plus, the overall handling is complete rubbish. Clearly this is a fairly modern video, and we all know that Steve is infinitely better than this.

I would like to echo Daryl's sentiments... "I feel insulted because I was duped with a lie into wasting my time watching a hack."

Well put, sir.

You don't have to look at the fingers...It's NOT Steve!

I only hope I could sit down with a deck of cards with Mr. Forte one day. Just to see the way he HANDLES a deck of cards would be the treat of a life time.

Funny to see all the buzz around the tittle of this post. Come on, don't be so harsh, don't you all guys have lost all your sense of humour? Are you not able to view this as a joke? Poor OJ who just tried to appear funny, and poor guy who did the footage, they only get disdainful comments...
For magicians, I think you're taking yourself a little bit too seriously.

It's not a matter of anybody taking themselves too seriously, it's just not funny.

First of all, it was not the song from shade, it was from resivour dogs (when the ear goes bye-bye...). it was a joke, but not a good one. I am suprised that anyone here really thought that that was steve forte. either he has a speed problem and has lost 80 percent of his skills, or that was not him.

read what daryl wrote: " I have the utmost respect for Steve Forte and not only do I think that he’s a great guy, but he’s the best sleight of hand artist with a deck of cards that I have ever seen in my life. I’ll say it again. Steve Forte is the best sleight of hand artist with a deck of cards that I have ever seen in my life. " that should be proof enough... if you cant do a push through, you don't fit daryls criteria...
