Paul Zenon does a great version with cash down two woman's tops

I think I saw this on Comedy Central once, it was the World Comedy Tour; am I thinking of the same guy?

I once read that Jamy Swiss doesn't perform tricks that he thinks have been done as well as they can be done. I kind of feel that way about cards accross. I would love to do this trick but Mac King's version probably can't be topped. Mac King's show is just awesome.

Mac King is awesome !!
I saw his show and cannot stop laughing !!
His cards across is great
He wears a yellow raincoat, the technique is easy but the performance is incredible.
I also recommend Tom Mullica's version.

Doesn't anybody remember Tom Mullica's cards across? He used to do it in his lecture all the time. Very simple, very funny.

I don't know if it's on video or not.

I've done Cards Across in comedy clubs for a couple years. It's gotten good reactions, but not great. I guess I always felt that the end was a bit, anti-climactic. They could see where it is going after the first set of cards were counted. Anyhow I changed my routine recently and my reactions have been even better. I believe I'm happy with it now.
It's done the same up until the end. At the end, the first person stands and counts their cards. 7. The second person counts their cards. 12. I look dumbfounded the crowd laughs. They count again. 12. I am standing behind them, and smile. Then turn them around, and point at the card stuck on their butt and yell, 13!!
A simple addition, but gets a GREAT reaction. Methodology could be easily figured out.

My wife and I got married in Las Vegas, and our friends(?) ratted us out at Mac King's show as newly weds, so we got pulled up on stage for the cards across. I have seen him do cards across many times, but it reaches a whole new level of hilarious when you are standing inches away from him while he makes those ridiculous faces while wearing a rain slicker. His had my vote before that, but that day cemented it.

I use the version "las vegas leaper" by paul Harris. found it in 'las vegas close up' and it has also been in the art of sure which volume!

in the magic menu, bill Malone gives some interesting comments about this handling. after you give the 2nd spectator 7 (10) cards, they can actually count them themselves, as 10 cards, when really they only have 7. it leaves you clean as anything!

when I don't use this version (which is rare, I always do it!) I use Malones technique, simple but effective. I'm sure its not his technique, but its who I learned it off.

I have seen/read versions by
Malone, Harris, Lovell, Carney, and whoever else was on the L&L DVD and the most entertaining and one that you could put yourself into would be Lovell's routine.

It's great and you can make it your own.
