Hello Everyone!,

I was wondering if any of you have the trick
"Hold it Buddy!" by Dan Harlan. It is Great, at least from my viewpoint. It cost about 11 dollars, and the routine is around 4 minutes long, a really great bit of comedy, and magic! It is similar to a three card monte, with an excellent story that goes along with it. It uses four cards, taking them out of a little envelope, which has a window in the front. The money card keeps disappearing, and at the end, all four cards turn into the
"not-money card" (is there a word for that?, the money card being pulled out of the known-to be empty envelope. Anyone have it?

Thanks,
Corey

I used the Harlan routine for a time after seeing him present it at a lecture. I think that the stand-up, jumbo card version is the better one, simply because the handling is well-suited to that type of setting.

Personally, as far as close-up monte goes, there are other (ungaffed) routines that I enjoy more.

Harlan's routine does have many things going for it: something of a reason for keeping the cards in an envelope, clean displays, a nice ending, pretty quick reset, etc. If I did stand-up, I'd be all over it. Smile

I agree with Chris--I use "Hold it, Buster," the jumbo version, in some of my shows. I go back and forth between this and Martin Lewis' Sidewalk Shuffle.

It didn't impress me too much as it reminded me of earlier effects like Jumbo Jest and Potty Prediction.

I have seen Dan do it in his lecture,
I think it's a pretty good trick.

Well,

Thanks for your input! I guess the only reason I think it is so good, is that I havent seen the jumbo version-hold it buster!, done before.

Thanks Guys!
