Magic is great to watch because it is just so amazing.  Magic is fun to do, but to truly learn and perform it well, you have to see some of the magic show acts done by the best magicians.  Magic is not as popular as it was years ago, but it is still cool. The magic shows tv in the 90s were usually about an hour long, and they were awesome.  Watching a magician in action is a cool way to learn proper techniques and it helps improve your skills with a crowd.  Because of this, you should consider watching professional magicians during their performances.

 

 

One of the easiest ways to watch magic shows is when they air on magic shows on TV, however, the magic show or shows of the 90s do not air anymore, and those were some of the best ones.  Years ago, especially during the holidays, networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX always aired magic shows, and they were awesome.  Today, however, there are no magic shows around, but there still is a way to enjoy their acts from the awesome shows.  David Copperfield, Chris Angel, Lance Burton, and Penn and Teller are some of the many magicians you need to watch when they perform during their magic shows. There are tons of DVDs available featuring some of the best magicians.  The advantages to having the DVD of the magicians are that you get extras and special features.  Some of the extras will give you access to the magicians after the show, and you might learn some extra tips from the magicians themselves.  Another cool thing about having a DVD is that you can enjoy watching your favorite magicians anytime you want.

Lance Burton is one of the best magician around and his DVD as worth seeing.  His Magic Made Easy Volume 1 DVD teaches you cool tricks, and his Secrets of Magic DVD give you lots of helpful information along with the secrets to some of his cool tricks.

Hey, I want you to be the best card magician around, so I’m going to give you some samples of the tricks you get in the book.

Card Magic Revealed: The Worlds Easiest Magic Trick

This card trick is so simple that it’ll definitely make you wonder whether you actually carried out the trick. The truth is you just don’t do anything! The card magic revealed is really astonishing but simple to trick people with.

The Effect

After you take out a deck of cards ask one of the spectators to shuffle it thoroughly. You ask him to name any two cards without the suit, just the name of the card.  Ask the spectator to put the card back into the deck after he names the two cards. Just concentrate really hard on it and use your showmanship to disillusion the people. After a minute or so ask the spectator to fan through a turned over the deck of cars and voila! The cards that he named before are right next to each other.

The trick

You really do nothing. The only thing you end up doing for this card trick is act like you are concentrating very hard to fool people when you put your hand on the deck. And the trick just works. This is the magic of math. Probability does the trick for you.

When the spectator names the two cards without revealing the suit, let us presume an Ace and a jack, he is actually naming four cards of each kind since the suit is not specified. That makes is a total of eight cards.

The theory is that out of the eight cards (Ace of Spades, Ace of Hearts, Ace of Clubs, Ace of Diamonds, Jack of Spades, Jack of Hearts, Jack of Clubs, Jack of Diamonds), at least one of the aces will end up beside one of the jacks.

This trick works almost 90 per cent of the times. The ten per cent of the times it doesn’t work then you just tell the spectator that you are not concentrating hard enough. And repeat the trick, it will work but don’t make the mistake of carrying the trick out on the same spectator over and over again otherwise you will not be successful each time.

However, the card magic revealed is bound to mesmerize your singular spectator.

Give one of the spectators the task of shuffling the cards and getting them to deal five cards and keep them face down on the table.

Give them the pack of cards and ask them to reshuffle it and check whether all the cards are there. They will find that one card is missing. And voila you pull the card out of the packet! The card magic revealed is bound to leave them speechless.

The secret

When doing the first step that is when you are giving your friends the deck of cards from the packet you have to secretly leave one card in the packet. Memorize the suit and the number of the card inside the packet making sure that the spectator is not aware of the card inside the pack.

The major secret trick occurs in the step where you ask them to write down the cards as you reveal the suit and the number one by one. Whenever you are revealing the five cards and asking them to write down, replace one of the cards suit and number with the suit and number of the card in the packet.

As you replace them in the card deck and ask them to check for the presence all the five cards one of the cards will be missing and you can shock them with revealing the card from the packet.

Card Magic Revealed: Mechanic’s Grip For Holding A Deck Of Cards

If you want to do any card trick you need to have deft hands which can handle the deck of cards and at the same time do the trick and the card magic revealed will baffle the audience.

At the core of all card tricks which involve the sleight of hand are just a basic moves and methods. Let us take a look at the mechanic’s grip for holding the deck of cards.

This kind of grip is the basic way to hold the deck of cards for almost every magic trick. It involves a simple positioning of fingers around the deck of cards.

To form the special grip, firstly hold the deck in your hand with your palm facing up. Take your pointer finger and place it on the side of the deck which is facing away from you. Take the middle, index and the pinkie finger and position them on the other side of the deck. Your thumb should finally hold the deck together on the opposite side of the remaining fingers which are already placed.

Such a grip ensures that you cover a lot of area of the deck of the cards which makes it harder for the audience to see some skill moves you will be making in many tricks. This position helps you in a plethora of tricks like the double lift, peeking and more.

This grip is an absolute essential to learn magic tricks involving deck of cards. It is recommended for beginners to practice holding a deck of cards with this grip and it is imperative that you walk around with the mechanic’s grip. It will help you train your hands to act normal while holding the deck.

To master the card magic tricks, it is absolutely vital that you keep practicing this on a regular basis on a daily basis. It has to become routine to you that you will be able to do it in your sleep as well!

 

 

Card Magic Revealed: Card That Jumps

This card magic trick is a visually baffling street magic trick which is sure to leave your audience gasping for more.

The Effect

A spectator picks up a random card from the deck which you present to him. The card is re-inserted into the deck without you not having seen the card. And then the moment the deck is the dropped on the table the spectator’s card jumps out from the pack and lands face up to reveal itself on the table. Voila! The card magic revealed is bound to leave your spectators speechless.

The Method

Shuffle the deck of cards so that the audience doesn’t doubt your card magic trick.

Fan out the cards in your hand.

Ask a person from the audience to pick any card from the deck.

Do the following two maneuvers when your spectator is memorizing their card.

  1. Move the top card in the pack to the bottom of the pack and while doing this flip it faces up. This has to be done quickly. So the deck you are holding now has the bottom card facing upside down.
  2. Now turn the whole deck over quickly and you have an upside down deck. But since the top card has been reversed, it will look like a regular deck of cars.

Now hold the deck in front of you ensuring that you don’t fan the cards at all since you might reveal the upside down deck. Ask the spectator to insert the card back into the middle of the deck.

As you face away from the spectator turn the top card also upside down and quickly scan through the deck to find the upside down card inserted by the spectator.

The card magic trick you are about to reveal will culminate with this final step.

Immediately place the spectator’s card on top of the deck and then hold the deck from above. Using your sly hands slide the top card back off the deck slightly so that you can do the next trick which will stun your audience.

Drop the deck from two feet above and as soon as the deck comes in contact with the table. The top card will amazingly flip over. The card magic revealed will inevitably shock your audience and connect your audience with you.
