You wrap the deck in rubber bands and throw it out to a punter in the audience.

As your back is turned, you instruct him to open the deck anywhere he likes and remember one of the cards.

In turn you instruct him to throw the deck to anybody in the audience. That person is instructed to do the same thing. This is done to five different punters.

With Gazzo's routine you will have six people standing. You proceed to name each person's card and five of the people who looked at a card will sit down.

As a climax you will still have one person standing, and he will say that you have not yet named his card--which makes for a tricky situation. So you ask him, "If I name your card out loud, will you sit down. You name his card, and he sits down. You get a standing ovation Gazzo style.

A total miracle. Not hard to master.

Manufacturer Says

Gazzo's Tossed Out Deck is the product of years of performance in city centers and busy streets around the world. What separates this deck from the others is its versatility (it can be performed for a small to HUGE crowd, anywhere from the street corner to an evening theatre show) and its powerful knock-out finish (It convinces the audience beyond a shadow of a doubt that you knew *exactly* which card everyone merely *thought* of). Less experienced magicians may see them as insignificant, but the subtleties that Gazzo has put into the Tossed Out Deck takes it from a neat mentalism piece to a working professional's reputation maker.

Gazzo is one of the most legendary street performers in the world, and he's spent his life refining his art and his magic. The tools that he uses to control and entertain crowds are precision tuned and ready for professional use.

Please note: Gazzo was kind enough to include his "Bra Gag" on this DVD. Gazzo asks that magicians please do not use this gag because it is a big part of Gazzo's current show. You'll love seeing Gazzo's Bra Gag, and we think it'll inspire you to create a gag of your own.

Good trick, unfortunate DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 15th, 2010
Where to begin?

I'll be 100% honest. This trick has left me with a slightly split personality. If you work larger crowds of disconnected people (i.e. less family groups and more "strangers") this is a wonderful trick for your arsenal. It's not going to work if people talk to each other afterwards. If they do, they will discover the secret by process of elimination. Now to the painful separation of my personalities - The presentation by Gazzo on this DVD is dreadful. Gazzo is a great street performer and I love all his routines. His material is often a bit on the blue side for me personally but each to their own. If I could sum up my experience of this DVD? Like pulling teeth. Gazzo, I've bought your DVD and I want to learn your trick - stop performing and start teaching. He rambles and goes off on unfunny tangents. At times I found myself rewinding or restarting segments because I honestly had forgotten what I was doing. Gazzo is a great performer but his teaching, on this DVD anyway, lacks a bit of professionalism.

What I really wanted was "this is how you do the trick, a, b, c, and now here are some performance tips and patter". What I got was a jumbled mess.

As I said - Good trick, unfortunate DVD..

Not for me Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
I'll concede this is a good effect for some people, but it's not for me. It's been noted this effect requires "strong audience management", but once you toss a deck to someone who's 50 feet away from you, there's not a whole lot you can do if they decide to be a trouble-maker. I'm not interested in exposing myself to that kind of risk.

I also think the description is a bit misleading, where it says, "You name each person's card"... well, sort of. You can NOT say, "Joe, you peeked at the 6 of clubs, Mary, you peeked at the 9 of diamonds", etc. That's not how the trick works, but this description might lead you to believe it does. I can understand someone being disappointed if that was their expectation.

Bottom line, this effect is similar enough to a Radar Deck, except with that effect, you're far more in control. No need to worry about troublemakers. Since there are better alternatives to accomplish a similar effect, I can't recommend this.

Was Very Happy with DVD!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 27th, 2013
I was a bit nervous buying this product as some of the reviews were bad. They could not have been more wrong. In fact I have never written a review for a product but I love this one sooooo much I am. I absolutely love his new edition to the trick! Many people have said that the preview is mis-leading. The thing is that to us magicians it might but to laymen It looks better than the video shows it. I have been working on this trick every day to make it as close to perfect as I can and I have to say Gazzo did a great Job!

Nice addition to TOD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
Most TODs that I have seen work on the same principle.
The addition where you name the last spectator's card makes this more convincing.
Also this needs to be done for a big group of people.
[edited for exposure]
The deck can be used for a couple of other tricks as well.
The DVD and the deck is good value here.

Great :D Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Admittedly to anyone around magic for any period of time the tossed out deck is simple and you don't need a dvd to tell you how to do it, but Gazzo's take, his proceedures and insight is worth three times the price. He added some nuances that I've never thought about (I've used it from stage for years in my mental magic speach). I'm incorporating some of it immediately. Thanks Gazzo & Penguin Magic

Meh. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2011
If you already know the method behind the classic Tossed out Deck effect, you're not getting much value in this DVD. The video was a little misleading, in giving the impression that the last spectator -- the one whose card you didn't initially name -- was also part of the "tossed out deck" phase of the plot. In fact, he's not. His card is selected in a different manner than the others.

I've been doing amateur magic for 20 some odd years now, and I know that promotors of magic products tend of over-sell the effect a little. I guess I was just a sucker for thinking this trick was something that it's not.

On the other hand, if you don't know the original tossed out deck method, then this is as good as any other place to learn it, I guess.

As others have noted, the DVD is actually a little painful to watch. Gazzo repeats himself far too often and his disclosure is rambling and unfocused. It's a little surprising, because he doesn't come across that way in performance. Ah, one of life's many mysteries.

Time Has Passed Him By Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2014
There is nothing new on this video. . . . Well, there is . . . sort of. Gazzo's own handling and presenting of the tossed out deck is a slightly new(er) way of presenting a trick that is at least forty years old and widely known. Moreover, Gazzo uses the tossed out deck as a secondary prop for what he views as his comedy routine. And that's where the problem (at least for me) comes in.
That his humor is bawdy is not the issue. In the right setting that is acceptable, even appreciated. But the fact that he repeatedly denigrated gay and lesbian persons is not acceptable. Using a magic trick as a prop is one thing. Using human beings is another. The time when it was considered funny to use pejorative references to any societal minority is gone. I sincerely hope that no easily-influenced young person would pick up on this and attempt to use it in his or her own act. And I'm not talking about what's 'politically correct.' I'm talking about what's right and wrong. This kind of humor is wrong, even if some people have not yet come to realize it.
For my part, it succeeds only in depleting the entire act and instruction, and hence the one star (for a pretty good spin the the tossed out deck).
PS: I doesn't help that he chooses to play dirty old man with the attractive European lady who assists him for the tutorial. She was clearly uncomfortable.
Gazzo! You're a talented comedian and performer. You don't need to say hurtful things about others in order to sell your act. Catch up to the times. The day for that sort of thing is over.
Oh, one more thing. Penguin is an outstanding magic dealer whose other books and downloads I've purchased I enjoy and appreciate. I really should review a couple of those. Think I will . . .

Gazzo a tossed out deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2012
While gazzo is an interesting performer ,his teaching skills leave much to be desired . He isn't precise and wanders and repeats himself before getting to a point . The effect is easy he makes it hard to appreciate because of his rambling

easy and amazing! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2012
I wasn't too sure whether i would like this when i bought it, but boy was i wrong! this was worth the money, plus more. The only problem is, the only way you can truly practice this, is infront of an audience. But, that being said, the first time i performed this, the results were HUGE! i suggest this to nyone and everyone.

Simply amazing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
This is a great effect since it involves so many different people in the audience. Any effect that includes multiple members in the audience will get huge reactions. Gazzo gives up some wonderful presentation ideas.
