The Effect: You ripped the edge of card and position the chunk into place. As you wipe your thumb over the tear, the card is visually restored. Immediately give your spectator the signed card as a gift. It is completely RESTORED!
This is one of the best card tricks you can do with a regular deck of cards!
The Effect: The Magician asks a spectator to select one card. The magician then does several cuts and shuffles so the cards became face up into face down and at the end of the trick all the cards are facing the same way except the spectator selected card.
The additional kicker with this effect is that the cards have also sorted themselves into Ace through King.
No Gimmick! Impressive! Just pure sleight of hand!
Straight after Derren Brown reveals how he predicted the lottery numbers, David Blaine performs a similar stunt several times over. He is touring around the US, amazing the folks he meets with some close-up magic in the UK premiere of his show What Is Magic?
He visits New Orleans where he carries out a money trick in front of locals, producing hundreds of dollars at their fingertips before stopping off at New York to conduct magic in front of Orlando Bloom.
His grand finale tonight is the infamous Bullet Catch trick. A .22 calibre bullet is fired from a rifle into a metal cup held in his mouth. Have your finger on the pause buttons to make up your own mind about the heading this should come under: “illusion”, “feat of endurance” or “just nuts” – all of which are Blaine specialities, of course.
“Around 20 magicians have died attempting this trick,” they tell us – forgetting that magical tool called the internet lets sceptical viewers check these facts.
Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give sound advice on how they should live their lives? Or the bending of spoons using your mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins doesn’t think so, and feels it is his duty to expose those areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, yet manage to hold the nation under their spell. He will take on the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of the movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and testing that have failed to produce conclusive results.
The documentary was first broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK, styled as a loose successor to Dawkins' documentary of the previous year, The Root of All Evil?
This footage is the interview with UK mentalist and illusionist Derren Brown.
