I'm a huge fan. I have been performing professionally for only a year and a half but I have liked magic all my life. I always carry a deck of cards with me because I like to be ready all the time. I was wondering if there are some tricks you always carry and if so which ones? also I would love to know if there's a story behind why you always have those ready.

Austin,

While I usually have a deck of normal Bicycle, Tally-Ho or Bee cards either on me or at least in the car, I virtually never have anything that would be considered a single trick or effect with me. The only time those leave the house is for actual shows.

That said, I do enjoy a large variety of strolling and close-up magic effects, but I don't carry them with me.

If I can chime in Austin, when you have the skill that Jason possesses, you don't need anything but a deck of cards. I was very fortunate to spend some time with Jason and he rejuvenated me at a time when I had just got a little complacent. He is a super guy and awesome technician. Thank you Jason and would love to jam with you again.

Best

Well maybe I din't really explain myself, I didn't really mean like carrying a gimmick or something like that, but having more like a favorite effect that is usually performed when he's not hired but feels like perform for someone. (like family or stuff). I know how skillful he is Smile.

So I will change my question to: What's the effect that you like to perform the most when you just feel like performing for friends? ( I think that would be the question that I really had in mind)

Austin,

If I'm asked by someone like a waitress or bartender to do something and I know that they don't have a lot of time, I usually either do a quick color-change where a Joker turns into their selected card or if I have a minute or two (and a shuffling surface) I'll perform Triumph.

I had 30 seconds in front of President Clinton once and did the Joker/color change routine.
