“You’re quite slow,” the magician comments. “Do you work for the post office?” The man finally chooses a card, keeping it hidden from the trickster. He reveals the card to the rest of the audience. The magician interrupts. “Just make sure you remember that nine of hearts, sir”. The man smiles and returns the card. Indeed, it was a nine of hearts. “Yes, we British are rather clever,” says the UK magician. “That’s how we won the Empire. I don’t quite know why we lost it”.

“Now, I know what you’re thinking,” he continues. “You’re thinking that all the cards were nine of hearts. Well, you’re wrong”. He flips through the entire deck of cards, revealing each card to be different. “I told you. They’re all different. If they were all nine of hearts, it would look like this”. He quickly fans the same deck of cards across the table, revealing them now to be all nine of hearts. A bewildered woman grabs her partner’s arm and hides her face in his sleeve. “Don’t worry, though,” says the magician. “They’re not all nine of hearts because like I told you, they’re all different”. He collects the deck and flips through it once more, revealing all the cards to be different again. Some audience members look at each other in astonishment. Some simply gaze at the cards. A teenager stares intently at the deck, rubbing his chin, trying to figure out how the trick was done. The bewildered woman and her partner are impressed.

“How much is it for those cards?” asks the woman’s partner. The snake is $5. The magic cards with instructions are $10. A cup-and-ball trick is $5 and the three-card trick is $3. “You can have the entire package, which comes with a book of 102 tricks, for just $20, but you can have my mother-in-law for free”. The audience laughs. “This entire package comes with a money back guarantee,” says the salesman / magician. “Providing you can find me.”

And just who was this magician demonstrating the impossible? The one and only Mark Lewis of course. Smile
