This is a monte type routine where you have three blank card and an ace. A blank goes on the table and the ace goes between the other two blank cards. The card on the table turns out to be the ace and the cards in your hand are all blank. It's in three phases with a kicker ending. I don't know how to PM people. I'm fairly new to the internet. If you can help me out with that I could help you out with the Shuffle. I still have the original instructions with mine. I haven't performed it in years, I should pull it out again.

This brings up an interesting question I think. What card effects could be done with jumbo cards and work in a street show enviornment?
Here's my contribution: Dia Vernon's Twisting the Aces. Do people think that is viable? Thanks.

In every street show I do, I use a jumbo version of my marketed Mirror Monte; three cards only, full front and backs shown, instant reset.

Harry Anderson's "Monte Gras" rocks on the street.

Three jumbo cards, no gimmicks, and they can be handed out at the end.

It is a great trick.

Best,

I am currently learing "Kate and Edith" for the street. For those who don't know, it's a jumbo 3 card effect about a king and two queens with patter about a 3some. funny routine.

... and I do the jumbo version of the McCombical Deck. Great fun, lots of audience interaction, plenty of room to play to the crowd. Nearly an instant reset.

James, et.al. - The Mcombical Deck is not a monte routine. My enthusiasm may have put my comments a little off topic!

That's MISTER Swami Bill to you.

Kasper,

Kate and edith is a GREAT trick. It is tough to do on the street due to the type of gaff it uses.

If you think about the angles it will become clear.

It could still work i guess but you would have to rework the handling and moves to suit the venue.

Best,

Dan-

Hey CardC, I don't see a pm icon. Is it supposed to be where the profile and quote icons are? Is this something I can do only after 50 posts? I'm very close to that.

Now that I think of it, Twisting the Aces may have angle problems on the street too. When you turn the ace of spades over right before the first twist. Would have to hold the cards very close to the chest. But with big cards and working surrounded--might not work. I'll have to make some big cards on the computer and give it a try. Thanks for the other tips! I'll check out the other routines.

I think you could build a whole act out of the jumbo 3-card monte (the cards with the sliding gaffe)... I recall (40 years ago) watching a guy do it and it killed... and wasa the ONLY effect in his act.

If you work with a second person a passe bottle routine with the 3rd bottle (ala 3-card monte) is killer too. Smile Smile Smile

Pete,

I love the idea of the three card monte type effect with the passe passe bottles.

Good thinking!

You can do a 3-card Monte routine with 3 Svengali decks, or three of those books you can show them blank or with colored in pictures. Smile

Sidewalk Shuffle is a great trick. Martin Lewis destributes it and performs it on his video. (the one with him standing in water on the cover.) I learned it 20 years ago form the instructions that came with it. I have it in my street repertoire, but have yet to do it. I am surprised nobody has mentioned it, here. It's true what they say about yesterdays trick. Pick it up in a couple of years and it's new and nobody else is useing it.

Peter: tell me about Mirror Monte
and
Danny: could you give me the gist of Monte Gras. Anderson has a great sense of what works well in the street. He ought to.

Hi Patrick,

Monte Gras is pretty much a blown up version of Color Monte. The effect is you show two losers and a winner, explain how the odds are two to one, show that the spectator can’t win, and then a big blow off card change for the finish. Really great effect and the cards can be handed out at the end.

Best,

Dan-

Thanks Danny,
I'm trying to imagine the Christ/ Annemann move with jumbo cards. always loved Color Monte.
Patrick

Kasper,
Sounds as though you are not short on self confidence and you say you are charasmatic. Rather than immulate one of the comics you mentioned above, I think you would do better to expand on your own personality. Create Kasper.

Studying successful acts and why they work is definitely worthwhile, though.

go get 'em, tiger.

Patrick

OOPS!!!
My post should have been in "Dealing With the Streets." Hope you find this, kasper.
