The 2015 Paper Convention features more great, fun magic you will use from my friends and me!
“Something Borrowed Something New” Jack Carpenter You’ll be doing some amazing visual magic with very little effort and a freely selected card. You’ll love this!
“Misdirection:The Way of The Monkey” David Kuraya David sent me a clip of this strange and wonderful effect and I HAD to have it for the notes! As David says “This is perhaps the strangest thing I have been playing with with recently. It’s a work in progress, but at Tom’s request, I am happy to share it” You’ll be happy he did too!
“Trent’s Ribbon” Trent James My lousy name for a great very quick, very visual stand up piece with a ribbon. It fooled me and will fool you. You’ll love doing this one.
“Increasing the Odds” Patrick Flanagan One simple strong entertaining demonstration in “cheating at cards” that you can use to lead into another routine or as a stand alone effect.
“Whitewall” Jeff Prace A wonderful simple concept limited only by your imagination that turns your iPhone/Smartphone into an even more magical device. Heck it’s so simple even I can do it!
“Turkish Ice Cream Sandwich” Curtis Kam In Curtis’ own words: “No doubt you've seen that video of a Turkish ice cream salesman relentlessly pranking his customers with manipulations of cones and ice cream that defy anticipation, not to mention American food safety laws. Decades before that video went viral, I came across a wonderful dodge in R. Paul Wilson's The Red-Headed League in which cards vanish from plain sight only to reappear in the deck, sandwiching a selection. Starting there, I put together a three-phase routine that jerks the audience around by its collective nose almost as mercilessly as a Turkish ice cream salesman.”
“Tom’s Poker” Tom Dobrowolski A four card Poker game I developed to sell to casinos to make BILLIONS!! 4 players 4 cards 4 Rules “4” loads of fun!
“2 Card Flip” Joe Cole 2 selected cards, found 2 ways, found 2 times and 2 much fun 2 do!!
“What You “Wynnn” in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” Tom Dobrowolski With just 3 coins I hit the Jackpot and then just as quickly hit the road busted out. You’ll learn a few easy move and displays that will make you look like you have Curtis Kam “Palms of Steel”.
“Easy As One,Two,Three” John Carey An excerpt from John’s wonderful new book “Crafted with Carey” this piece is a combination of the classic inversion plot, married with Paul Cummins fantastic “Flasher” premise from his lecture notes “FASDIU”. If you haven’t yet you should buy John’s book.
“One To-Go Box Please!” Jeremiah Zuo A visual pun for the magically inclined. Two selected cards. One is found in between two jokers which come out of the box. The second is found inside a box which came out of the two jokers.
