UPDATES ON THE WAY WE UPDATE: Changing something this month, a lot of you have said it can be overwhelming to suddenly have so much stuff to watch every month, I hear ya…
So, instead of loading up on all the new stuff at the beginning of the month, I’m going to space it out a little more THROUGHOUT the month.
Also I like the idea of just posting something when it’s ready, makes it all a bit more exciting and immediate. So I’ll be dropping new miracles on a more constant basis, little surprises could appear in your mail box at any moment, so to speak.
JUST ADDED: THE NEXT PART OR SEQUENCE OF THE CHOCOLATE BOX MASTERCLASS, building top to the vanish of the coin from the box - LADIES, SINGLES & CHOCOLATE,
O’CONNOR ON STEROIDS
If you’ve already watched and tried out the material within the playlist THE GENIUS OF BILLY O’CONNOR (and if not, why not?) you will know how strong that card act is. I’ve been performing the COUNTING THE CARDS sequence a LOT lately and its grown into a fast, funny and commercial routine, one that I look forward to presenting any chance I get. So I’m teaching you my additions and bits of business and also tipping my special handling, you see I incorporated one of most cleverest moves I’ve ever seen, invented by Pit Hartling. I saw Pit recently and he has graciously given me permission to publish and share this move with you, it really kicks the climax up to a whole new level. On top of that, I have a new SUCKER ending that provides a twist and real climax that takes the crowd by surprise. It’s all here.
AL BAKER, who’s gave so much to magicians over his life time, and who’s works continue to do so, published an effect called POKER FACE. It was so simple that pretty much everyone everyone skipped past it. BUT here’s the thing, POKER FACE is one of the most entertaining, commercial and easy to do effects Al Baker ever published. And I’m going to show you why. I just did this for a group at the Castle the other night and it killed, on top of that all the magi were loving it's strength, simplicity and impact!
On top of THAT, I’ve found a way of fitting POKER FACE into my Billy O’Connor Counting the Cards routine O’CONNOR ON STEROIDS, making an already commercial routine a KILLER performance piece.
CLOTH SHOCKER: when I put together my first multi disc project called CLOTH I had so much material I couldn’t fit it all on the three DVDs, so here’s something that didnt make it, for totally selfish reasons. Probably the funniest and most eye popping version of the Card Thru Hanky trick. I’ll teach you my handling and once you get the effect you’ll be able to slot it into your act quite easily.
PLUS: For ease of reference and study I've added the other Billy O'connor stuff here too.
More to come over the next few weeks, check out the full list in my latest forum post.
