Clutch by Oz Pearlman (Instant Download) Simple. Powerful. Easy to perform. A high-stakes card routine straight from Oz's show. Plays as big for 2 or 3 people as it does for two or three hundred!
Price: $19.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

Clutch is also available as a DVD.

Clutch is featured in Oz Pearlman's off-broadway show, The Unseen. While Clutch is simple to perform and can be done any time with a borrowed deck, it is presented here with the professional performer in mind. This is a card routine that bridges the gap between close-up and stage as it plays for the entire audience. We hope you'll add Clutch to your show.

The deck is borrowed. Fair.

The spectator shuffles, picks a card, and returns it to the deck. Fair.

The cards are put in the card box. Fair.

The box is closed. Fair.

The spectator puts the deck in his/her own pocket. Fair.

The spectator confirms there's nothing else in his/her pocket... just a deck inside a CLOSED box! Fair.

You show your hands COMPLETELY empty. You show them slowly and from all angles. Your sleeves are rolled up. Fair. Fair. Fair.

You explain exactly what you're gonna do. This is as fair as it gets!

You reach into the spectator's pocket and INSTANTLY pull out the chosen card. Your hand darts in at lightning speed and BOOM, a card appears at your finger tips. This happens in the blink of an eye... literally less than a second!

You ask the spectator to check the box of cards. The box is still closed!

Top 5 reasons we love Clutch:

  1. It's extremely fooling--laypeople don't have a chance!
  2. It's dramatic--you set up an impossible challenge for yourself.
  3. It's visual--you instantly pluck the card from your spectator's pocket.
  4. It plays huge in multiple environments--close-up, street, stand-up, and stage.
  5. It can be done with a borrowed deck without ANY preparation. Perform clutch anytime, anywhere... everytime, everywhere!

Leaves them speachless Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 16th, 2010
This is one of the very few effects that I perform that I feel comfortable performing anywhere and any time without any fear of being caught. Under all conditions, this effect is brilliant. You can be surrounded by people intensely stareing at you and this effect can still be pulled of. One of the major problems people have is that not everyone wears shirts with breast pockets and if it's a girl you are, it's somewhat intrusive (I found that out the hard way). You can just as easily use a jacket pocket or a sweatshirt pocket while performing. The effect is not hard to master with some practice. You should be fooling people in a few days after reveiwing the DVD. Oz Pearlman is not anything special as a magic teacher (not like Greg Wilson or Richard Sanders) but you get the whole effect. This effect is worth the money and I highly recomend it.

Powerful Stuff Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
Clutch is one of those great tricks that just haven't been done. Unlike a lot of "new" stuff out there, this actually is a brand new, fresh trick. The handling is very natural and there is very little slight of hand used so beginners can quickly learn this too. The best part is that it happens in the spectators pocket unlike most tricks where it's in yours. If you get this, you will learn a trick that will always get great reactions from your audience.

Clutch is totally awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 13th, 2011
Oz has done it again. He's taken an old effect which many magicians aren’t aware of and added his genius to it which turns it into something no less than phenomenal. I had been performing this routine for a number of years and it always got a huge response. However, I had to do all the work, the shuffling of cards along with placing the card into the deck. What makes Oz’s performance so awesome is that you can use the spectator’s deck (or a borrowed deck), allow the spectator to place his or her card into the deck, and allow them to immediately shuffle the cards until they are blue in the face. I can now show my hands totally empty and with next to minimal handling, reveal to the audience that the spectator has been in control of the cards for the majority of the routine. Oz uses a secret method for you to instantly locate the spectator’s particular card which is simple as can be and so unsuspecting to anyone around. What’s more, you can learn this method and apply it to many other card routines. Even if you know how this routine is done, learning the method is well worth the purchase alone.

Oz is thorough in his teaching leaving nothing out. In fact, I learned from my own personal routine where I’ve been making some mistakes that made my own handling more difficult than it could have been. For the money, this is purely simple to learn, profound, gets a huge reaction, and is a must be for novices to professionals alike. You won’t be disappointed!

1 Problem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2008
I really like this trick but the only problem I have with it is the price. I think that this should be 9.95 like the rest of the instant downloads because there really isn't anything that special about the trick. But this is a really good trick and I would def add to cart. If money is not a problem then ADD TO CART.

great effect, not overpriced! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2008
GREAT TRICK!!!

i wont tell you the reasons why i love it, they are all written above in the description of the effect. What i will say though, is that even though some others have said that this effect is overpriced, i disagree. The fact that this is an IMPROMPTU effect which KILLS means that you will perform this literally hundreds of times. none of that waiting till you have your gimmick with you stuff. It IS worth every cent.

I cannot recommend this more to any lover of card tricks. Plus, you will use one of the principles taught here in many other card effects.

definitely WORTH THE MONEY!!!

Solid effect that hits them personally... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Tricks that are intimate to the spectator hit SO HARD, and this is one of them! You can't get closer then in their pocket! It's a clean effect, but with a few snags to be aware of...which they do cover in the explanation.

However, this trick I'd say is not for beginners. You definently want to have a good grasp of how to control your audience and have good presentation skills. It will help a lot with this effect.

With that said, clutch is just that...CLUTCH! I performed this to a heckling spectator who was being difficult. I told him to think of any card and to write it down, I took the paper he wrote it on and burned. Then I took the deck of cards, shuffled it...and put in the box for him to hold on to. "Put this in your coat pocket" I said. He did. Two seconds later...I reached in...and pulled out his card.

....he quit heckling.

The BEST for anywhere Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
This trick is great for big show or just one on one. It is a part of my card routine and it happens to be the closer! Amazing method, I am wondering why I didn't think of it before I bought it. You will love this amazing easy trick and put it right into your act!

Great method! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
I want to say first that the method used in this effect can be used in so many ways, if you want to be creative!

This effect is great and killer. I performed this many times with my hands being burned and it plays out for the perfect pickpocket routine. Oz is a great teacher as we all know. And clutch is one of those effects that you can go to at any time and Oz's methods are simple and diabolical. He takes simple things and combines them together to make a real fooler.

He performs this in a roof full of people and fools them. Please take your time performing this you are doing and amazing thing. Going in there pocket and pulling their card in a mixed deck. Take it slow!
