How are the other effects on The Richard Sanders Show Volume 1? Thanks
I think they're pretty good, though I wouldn't say they're all ideal restaurant tricks. Synchronaceity requires a little too much table space; Pile of Change is good but not quite presentational enough for a restaurant table IMO. Behind My Back is shocking for layman, and would make a good "street" trick (much as I hate that term), but you wouldn't want to do it surrounded.
On the other hand, Gobsmack Pack (Invisible Deck type routine only with no rough and smooth cards) is nice and spooky, happens in your hands and resets instantly. Named is a cool visual quickie if you don't mind using a gaffed card (easy to add and subtract from the deck as you need).
Double Bill Switch is very neat to watch, although in terms of resetting, you probably want to avoid having the bill increase in denomination. There are plenty of other plots you could adapt this technique to, though. (It's possible this may also be taught in the "Switch" book already mentioned in this thread, I'm not sure.)
And Magic Marker is a terrific effect, especially the third handling he provides. That one is perfect for restaurants. (Unfortunately, the marker won't work for the bill in marker effect on the DVD.)
All in all, while these tricks aren't necessarily groundbreaking, there is some strong material that I don't see performed much. Plus, I love watching this guy work; he handles his props so casually and gracefully at the same time. I'd say the DVD is worth a look.
