Smokin' Candies DVD by John Rogers


Disc Description:
Smokers and non-smokers unite! The reigning king of wooden cigar magic has finally decided to open the vaults on decades worth of tricks, tips, and routines! Most revealed on this DVD for the first time ever!

Smokin' Candies DVD is a cornucopia of vanishes, productions and routines designed to engage real world audiences with items they have all had in their pockets! Yes Lifesavers, gum and breath mints can be used with these sleights instead of wooden cigars!


John Rogers is a name well known to any performer who has had the good fortune to handle his exquisite hand-made Wooden Cigars and Cigarettes or John's recent release of magic using various gaffed Pencils.

Beautiful props aside, the real magic exists in the handling by the performer. That's right, we are talking good old fashioned sleight of hand. But where can one aquire the needed skills? Certainly there are volumes of text books available which cover hundreds of variations of sleights that one can learn. But unless you have a large personal library at your disposal (or a lot of spare cash), obtaining the necessary skill can be a long and laborous journey.

Lucky for neophytes and seasoned professionals alike, John Rogers has released a DVD dedicated to teaching you the skills you'll need to successfully amuse and amaze your audience. With a little practice, patience and dedication you'll easily cause cigars, cigarettes and even candy to appear, vanish and multiply quite easily, much to the appreciation of your mystified spectators. Smile

Chapters on the disc include:

  • Continuous Candy Production
  • Continuous Cigar Production
  • Cigar through the chest
  • Cigar through the knee
  • Cigar Purse production
  • Invisible hand to hand transfer
  • John's Change Up Move
  • Cigar Purse Vanish
  • Switching techniques
  • The Flip Up Move
  • Schoolboy Pencil Vanish
  • Cigar Sleeving
  • The Rogers Cigar Holdout
  • David Stone's Quick Change
  • Tips on Audience management
  • John's Theory of Magic

But there is really much more to this digital offering. John discusses the use of a simple (but very effective) hold-out, which you can purchase from John, or build yourself thanks to the easy to follow instructions which John provides. Once you have this little goodie, a large variety of effects are now possible with but a minimum of practice.

John also takes a few minutes to show us a number of his hand-made props. Those of you who have never seen these true pieces of craftsmanship are in for a real treat. If you already own some of John's work, no worries as you can easily skip to the next chapter thanks to the wonderful technology of the DVD.

I think it is also important to mention the fact that most (if not all) the routines and sleights which John teaches on the disc can be used with candy (e.g, Certs, Lifesavers, Gum, etc) as opposed to cigars and cigarettes. Non-smokers will appreciate this I have no doubt, as it allows you to perform some killer magic in venues which may not allow the use of tobacco products.

Finally, the DVD is produced by the good folks at the Camirand Academy of Magic and the production values are decent. Good visuals for learning and loads of information.

If you have ever considered the idea of pulling several cigars out of an empty change purse, causing cigarettes, candy or pencils to appear and vanish at will, then this is the DVD for you. Great value for the money. Recommended.
