The next THIRTY ONE videos will deal with one of my favorite plots in card magic, THE DIMINISHING CARDS.
I first saw the trick when I was school boy and it made such a powerful impression on me, I just loved it. Dick Turpin used to perform it all the time and killed with it, but I never felt I could present it effectively.
Then recently, when working on my one man show, I decided to give the effect a shot. I did my usual massive research looking for the perfect method and presentation and made some truly eye opening discoveries, and I’m here to tell you all about it.
Within the 31 awesome D.C. versions performed, explained and taught, I discuss my approach to creating the routine for my live show. We go deep into methods from Bob Haskell, Al Baker, E.G. Brown, Edward Victor, Robert Houdin and many more, all with my personal additions, tweaks and observations. THIRTY ONE videos, and it’s all leading up to my own personal routine on the SUPER DIMINISHING CARDS along with my conflicted thinking behind it and plenty of live performance footage.
It’s another magic, performance and history lesson all rolled into one massive super fun playlist.
