With Lightning, you'll be prepared to make a light bulb spontaneously LIGHT - blurring the lines between science and the supernatural.
The lightbulb can be in your hand, or far away from you.
And, Lightning doesn't just cause bulb to turn on and off. It's been specially designed to realistically flicker and grow in intensity as your psychic energy builds to a climax.
Perform Lightning in close, intimate living rooms, all the way up to large stages.
Use Lightning on its own, or in combination with some of your favorite effects. Its the perfect lead-in before you shatter a bulb - as in MagicSmith's Big Bang and Mesika's Exploding Bulb. Watch the attached videos and witness the magic of Lightning.
Lightning is 100% self-contained, tiny and very powerful. It's completely custom designed - there's really nothing else like it. There's virtually no sleight of hand, no set-up, and it resets automatically after each use.
Lightning comes with the Lightning gimmick and an instructional Video CD.
The rubber bands can be examined.
You show a deck of cards completely, front and back. You also show the Lone Stranger a single card, with a different colored back from the deck. The cards are shuffled and openly spread on the table, allowing a spectator to select any card. When the spectator's card and the odd card are turned face up, they exactly match! The Lone Stranger strikes again!
When she comes over with the bill, present your credit card and point out to her the card derails: the number at the bottom, the date, the different logos etc...etc.. Now turn the card face down and give it a good shake, explain that you are mixing it.
When you turn the card back up, she'll be shocked to find out that you accidentally over-mixed it; to her surprise the contents of the card will be in total disarray!
After she gets over the initial shock, just ask her for her phone number! You won't be disappointed.
Otherwise, if you get your kicks from watching your banker bounce out of his seat, I'm sure you'll have a ball with this gimmick.
At this point, the spectator is told that they may change their mind and choose a new selection. When the spectator is satisfied with their choice, the performer begins to remove the cards from the wallet one at a time. The spectator is instructed to name their selection when it is removed from the wallet. After all five of the second set of cards are removed from the wallet there is only one card left, the performers prediction, which is a match to the spectators mental selection!
Complete with full colored grids, cards and routine.
Representing the mail-delivering owl of a young wizard, the magician shows the two cards and empty hands. Magically, the owl delivers a parchment wishing the Birthday child best wishes. The message can be substituted to fit any occasion.
Effect includes four parchment-style printed "Happy Birthday" papers and a pair of special Owl cards, plus complete instructions.
A card is selected, signed and returned to the deck. You explain that you will now find the card by cutting to it. Using a playing card like a buzz saw, the massacre begins. The card is used to saw through the entire top half of the deck, splitting the top twenty-six cards in half. The card that is stopped at, beneath all the mutilation is the signed selection.
Everything may be handed-out for immediate examination and the cards are reusable. Comes complete with a special poker-size Bicycle deck and photo-illustrated instructions.
After a moment of thought, the performer declares, The name of your card is Phil! You know, short for Phillip! The audience is understandably a bit surprised. The pack is removed and then shown to have different names printed boldly on the back of every card. When the deck is turned face up and the card named by the spectator is found, it is the one and only card named Phil!(Not Rough and Smooth!)
Historical Note: The basic plot of this routine goes back to Fred Lowe's Christened Reverse. Over the past few decades, many methods have been devised. It turns out that Trevor Duffy reinvented a version that was created by Phil Goldstein in the early 1980s, entitled Final Fred. That routine had its debut in a lecture at the 1985 FISM convention in Madrid. The issue of this prior invention has now been discussed by Duffy and Goldstein, along with the ironic coincidence of its title, and we are pleased that an equitable arrangement has been made, and this item is being marketed with Phil Goldstein's approval.
"It fits in my wallet and is with me at all times. I really like the way Rodger thinks! Play Time is a keeper." - Stephen Bargatze
"Thanks Rodger, your 'Play-Time' is my new favorite trick to carry in my pocket." - Mac King
The Magician has two cards selected from a deck of cards. He tells the spectators that a lot of people ask him, "How long have you been doing magic?"
The magician then shows the spectators an old black and white photo of himself as a child. The small child, age one, is holding a playing card. The magician tells the spectators that "A picture is worth a thousand words."
He tells the first spectator that on the reverse side of this picture is another photo of me holding a face up card. The magician asks the first spectator to reveal their selection. The photo is turned over and the child star is holding a playing card. It's a Match!
The magician turns the photo face down on the table and asks 2nd spectator to reveal his selection. The magician then asks the 2nd spectator to turn the photo over. The photo has changed to match the other selected card!

The spectator is asked to use their thumb to squeeze down on the card and snake. When the snake senses that the chosen card is on its back, it snaps up and coils around the card. Amazingly the psychic snake has correctly selected the spectator's card!

Singled out by the legendary Paul Harris for inclusion on his True Astonishment DVD set, SMOKE RINGS is a truly incredible impromptu miracle!
If I only had one playing card with which to do magic, this is the routine that I'd do, bar none. - David Forrest (from the introduction of this manuscript)
SMOKE RINGS is a completely impromptu, 100% examinable linking card effect which requires no preparation whatsoever. Only one card is used, nothing else. No additional gimmcks are required, your hands are clearly empty. This is anywhere, anytime magic with nothing more than a single playing card.
Any card is borrowed or freely chosen by a spectator and signed. With both hands unmistakably empty, two impromptu rings are torn from the card. Without any overt actions or suspicious cover, the two rings are magically linked together, one ring hanging from the other. Such is their linked condition that one ring must actually be torn in order to free the other - one ring is unmistakably displayed as being torn.To finish, the torn ring is completely restored and everything is handed out for examination. There is nothing to find. The rings may be kept by the spectator as a souvenir. Believe it!
After many years of secrecy, SMOKE RINGS can now be yours!

Soft Shoe Monte uses just three jumbo cards (with the requisite Bicycle backs, thank you very much) to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of your spectators. Through three phases, though it seems as if everything has been explained clearly and that the rules couldn't be any easier to follow, the money card is never where they expect it. Even when you use one hand and two cards, the spectators are completely flummoxed.
This is a trick that plays huge, packs small and packs a punch.
Masterfully deceptive, ingeniously clever and devilishly entertaining, Jim Steinmeyer's Soft Shoe Monte isn't just cheating, it's a complete stand-up routine that makes dishonesty a sure thing.
The magician has the spectator sign their initials on the dime and he is seen to place it into his pocket. The penny is placed into the spectators hand. When the magician taps the penny with the Sharpie, it changes places with the dime and now the signed dime is in the spectators hand, and the penny is in the magicians pocket.
Comes complete with special coin, pen and instructions with performance tips.
Two jokers are placed in the spectator's hand and two jokers are kept in the magician's hand. The magician touches his jokers to the spectator's and claims that they have changed places. "Okay, you are probably wondering why this trick was rated a ten?" The spectator and the magician turn their cards over at the same time revealing that all the cards have changed into four tens!
What People Are Saying: "Ten is so clean, it's like washing your hands with anti-bacterial gel." - David Acer
"When I was a kid, each night, I had strange dreams where strange numbers appeared floating in front of me", says the magician. "And I don't know why, I wrote them all inside this little game I used to play." The magician brings out a small yellow origami pyramid, and places his fingers around it. He then shows all the inner sides of the pyramid with different numbers on it. "I noticed something strange about these numbers! Look, I'm going to open it two times, and I will ask you to remember just one of the numbers that catches your attention." The performer proceeds, opening the pyramid two times, one in each direction. The spectator concentrates, and without any hesitation, he can tell which number the spectator was thinking about! The effect can then be repeated with another number.
