So we start with a routine inspired by John Scarne… yep, close up peeps rejoice as I’m finally tipping my personal all time favorite walk around routine, an act really… I call it Groundhog Day. Groundhog is fast, visual and modular, a sequence of five increasing impossible transpositions of two cards, including an impossible finale and an additional ultra visual sequence based on a routine of Ralph W. Hull’s that you will love! Five methods woven into a killer walk around routine. Oh and the magic happens in the spectators hands. It’s super easy and half of it is practically self working…
GROUNDHOG DAY - POWER SWITCH - The Scarne launch point, two cards switch places on the spectators hands. Fast, easy and with a secret bonus video that you will love.
GROUNDHOG DAY - TIGHT TRANSPO - My instant follow up, where there’s no room to cheat, they’re burning your hands and yet BAM! The cards change places. It’s fast and visual and it sets you up for-
GROUNDHOG DAY - ORGANIC TRANSPO - A little more flourishy and in their face as the two cards switch visually… again! By now the crowd is loving you AND hating you.
GROUNDHOG DAY - MODERN TV - My adaptation of Ralph Hull’s favorite card trick… not only does it fit perfectly, and not only is it sleight free, and not only will it have have you scrambling to your magic draw, it is probably the best damn routine you’ll ever see with a WOW! GIMMICK.
And all this leads to the incredible
GROUNDHOG DAY - PUNCH TRANSPO - my version of a Peter Duffie effect that is the perfect killer ending and guaranteed to fry their brains.
Seriously, if you don’t get real reactions with this routine… you are performing for zombies, RUN!
Oh, two extra bonus videos on this playlist.
GROUNDHOG DAY - TO SIGN OR NOT TO SIGN - Here we discuss and demonstrate how you can do most of the Groundhog Day routine with signed cards.
And as tribute to the great Theo Annemann, another inspiration, I’m teaching what I consider the granddaddy of two card transposition effects:
GROUNDHOG DAY - INSTO TRANSPO. I know you’ve seen it in the books, and I know you’ve passed over it, and I know once you see it actually demonstrated, you’re going to do it!
That’s seven videos detailing a complete, visual, commercial card act.
