Card Stunts is Gregory Wilson's complete Close-up card act performed live from the Magic Castle. You'll learn how to do it all! The explanations are thorough, and the material is some of the best in the world. If you perform with a deck of cards, this is a must-have DVD.


  • HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING - The card box magically and mysteriously jumps out of your pocket and back around the deck - TWICE!



  • PHOENIX SPLIT - Four aces magically appear at your fingertips one at a time -- with your sleeves rolled up!



  • RESET WITH A HOOK - A jacked-up, nitro-burning demonstration of derring-do that masterfully motivates why the four aces change place with the jacks. BOOMERANG CARD OF DEATH A playing card shoots from the middle of the deck, high into the air, reverses direction mid-flight and plunges back into the deck -- between two selected cards -- with only one hand!


  • BOXSPRING - One at a time, the four aces sneak our of a completely closed and ungimmicked card case.


  • JOKE IN THE BOX - Finally, 'Card Under Glass' without getting your cards wet. The bone dry (signed if you like) oker jumps from the deck and under the card box -- twice. Then, for the surprise finish, instead of under, it goes. . . inside the box! Gentlemen, start your Sharpies!


  • G FORCE - An unsuspecting spectator selects the same card three times in a row. You top things off with a transposition that leaves them in vertigo!


  • REVELATION IN SPADES - Find thirteen cards in a row - in perfect order!

Just go to any magic forum and you'll see that magician's that do magic for a living say things like "this is the best tape I own!" and "This is one video I'm never going to get rid of." Now that it's out on DVD, it's a steal for 30 bucks!

This is by far one of my favorite... probably my favorite card DVD I own! I don't know what people are talking about with Greg's teaching. I thought it was excellent. The only thing he DOESN'T explain is "Double Decker" but you'll notice it's not even listed in the contents on this site or on the back of the DVD case. It's a cool trick and if you know a little bit about card magic, Greg offers you a hint on how it's done and if you go back and watch the performance, you'll easily figure it out. He gives you the ok on doing this, or if you can't, he tells you where to find the explanation of the routine.

To me though, the other tricks that were taught are absolutely incredible and with many of them, nobody has done anything like it in the past. I thought the teaching was excellent, the tricks were excellent and honestly, I was fooled by some of the stuff and I've been doing card magic for a long time. I love watching Greg perform! If you're just starting out, get Easy to master card miracles with Michael Ammar or Born to Perform with Oz Pearlman, but if you want to do some incredible card magic that you won't see a lot of other magician's doing... get this DVD it's well worth it!

This was the first performance dvd of Gregory Wilson that I saw, and it was dazzling. This is a nice way to see an entire act from start to finish along with the interludes and spectator interactions.

My favorite is boxspring, followed by phoenix aces, and the revelations in spades. These are not self working tricks and sleight of hand is involved.

Greg's the best Report this review

This is one of my favorite DVDs. I really like this DVD and the routine that is performed in the beginning. Getting to watch Greg perform is an invaluable lesson in audience interaction and management. The tricks are very well-routined and thought out. You will have to practice, but the material is well within the reach of anyone who puts in the work. Joke in the box is an awesome 'card under the glass' style routine and Reset with a Hook is one that you will be performing all the time.

This was the first magic video I ever got, I remember getting it on VHS and watching it over and over. Every effect on here is simply brilliant and you learn so, so ,so many sleights and effects which make it excellent value for money. As always Greg Wilson is funny and friendly in the explanations which make it a pleasure to learn from him.

Tough for beginners, great for advanced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
here is a DVD that is a great one to aspire to. Wilson shows some wonderful tricks, and with enough time, just about anyone could master these illusions. Sometimes, I've found that beginners have a little more time on their hands, so this would be a great video for them. If you're looking for a quick trick to learn and wip out on the fly, this is probably not for .

The effects on this DVD can tear you up. Ti really takes you to the next level.

The performance and Gregs jokes are worth the price of the dvd but it really is the effects that you need to look at.

Reset with a hook happens to be my favorite because it is just to commercial. You really cant go wrong with this buy.

It's Gregory Wilson . . . duh Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Gregory Wilson is a stud. I love watching him perform in front of an audience. He really knows how to have a good time and have fun with the audience, and most times it's all about having fun and less about the magic. Watching him perform is truly astonishing.

This video, Card Stunts, is loaded with good solid material. His Heavyweight boxing routine alone is worth purchasing this DVD. This is a fast-paced routine where the card box appears and vanishes and the cards end up in the box and out of the box. Super smooth, and super entertaining.

This was a Penguin Magic production, and the quality is top notch. The only major complaint I have about the product was the fact that he performed Paul Harris's effect Double Decker, but did not explain it. If you're familiar with Paul Harris and his work, you're likely familiar with this effect, but it would be nice to see his tips and pointers and his handling. I don't mind a DVD that has a performance only section if it's part of a trailer or an advertisement on the DVD. However, when it's part of the performance routine, and they don't teach it, it's a bit annoying. A lot of this material was Paul Harris-based. In fact, at least 4 effects were basically Wilson's handling of Harris effects. However, it's still worth it. Wilson brought some groovy ideas to the table.

Phoenix Split is a variation of Las Vegas Split by Paul. Also, Reset with a Hook is, of course, Paul's Reset effect. This one, I will say that I liked Wilson's handling until the end. It was a bit anti-climatic. The end was supposed to be the "big change that makes this version better," but I'm not seeing it.

Moving on, Boomerang Card of Death is awesome, and will likely take you the rest of your life to master, but so worth it. Another thing I've noticed about this and other Wilson videos is that sometimes the performance is done one way, and the explanation either leaves out a step or is different from the performance method. Such is the case in the performance and explanation of Boomerang Card of Death.

Boxspring is a killer effect where the four aces "melt" through or "pop out" of the closed up card box. G Force is probably, in my opinion, the weakest link on the DVD. It's basically him forcing the same card on the same person 3 or 4 times in a row with a transpo at the end. It's all a bit confusing.

Finally, Revelation in Spades is an excellent effect. This is basically a thirteen card revelation without having cards selected. I read Marlo's ten card revelation in his book Early Marlo. I thought the revelations were beautiful; in fact I use some of them to this day. However, I didn't like the idea of having 10 cards selected and returned. The rythm and pacing of that can be a bit boring. Wilson's effect, Revelation in Spades takes the selection and return process out of the mix. This really is a thing of beauty to watch when Wilson performs it. As he points out several times in the DVD: he's a really lonely guy. It shows by how dang good he is. GEM!
