Hi guys,

I'm thinking of entering an amateur magic competition near where I live. I have a problem however, I just do card magic.. what do you suggest I do?

I forgot to add that this it has to be appropriate for parlor. How difficult would this make card magic?

If you only do card magic you should think about learning some card effects that are appropiate for a stage setting.

I love Six card Repeat, The Comedy Comeback card gets great reactions too.

Wiz Kid's "Signed Sit-On-It" from The Wizards' Journal #16 (on my site) is easy to learn, easy to perform and has a great comic plot.

If you want something the guys aren't likely to have seen before, check out Magicbob's "I Hate Card" illusions in his two books on my site.

McCombical Prediction would be a good one. Have you considered any Jumbo Card tricks? Sidewalk Shuffle is a pretty good one. You could also do a Jumbo Invisible deck. I have also seen Twisted Sisters in Jumbo.

Good luck.

Close up stuff can also play well on stage if you go it right....

I have seen Boris Wild do his Kiss off routine for a room of 500...
(All on a close up pad)

An overhead camera, and projector can do wonders.

That is a great point Shawn. I have a friend who does a Torn and Restored card on stage with a LCD projector and he gets a standing ovation.
