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!

awesome trick for anytime no setups needed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2013
Awesome trick for needing no set up work I can't understand why people are complaining on the price for it on other post. Id pay over 50 dollars for it. It's an improvisational trick, real easy to do and packs a big punch to my audience and keeps them wondering. I don't know if I will use it as my closer or just before intermission but it's one of the best. I will post me doing it on my facebook page as soon as I record it on my next show add me as a friend and come and watch if you'd like.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 3rd, 2012
This is another one of those awesome effects that goes to prove that there truly is NOTHING more magical & powerful than simplicity!
It works every time & it ALWAYS leaves an impact!!!
One of the EASIEST tricks I've ever performed!

If you decide to purchase this download then I would also recommend that you include it as part of a package deal with other effects such as: Self Tying Shoelace, Kicker, Two Dollar Window, & Dress Code. These are all EXCELLENT illusions offered at insanely low prices!

YOU WON'T FIND THEM ANYWHERE ELSE!

Simple, Yet Powerful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 26th, 2012
In the promotional video Oz states that "the best tricks are simple" and that's no lie when it comes to Clutch. I have performed Clutch about three dozen times before writing this review and have been flawless in performance. The effect is as clean as the demo reel shows and has an amazing impact. Spectator's eyes light up when you immediately hand them the deck to shuffle after they selected their card. The reveal is super quick and requires no sleight of hand. My advice, develop a patter that fits your image and you have an extremely powerful effect.

Takes a little practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2011
First and most important: this illusion works exactly like the promo shows. That is always key in my mind.

Second: I feel like an extreme amature, like myself, may have some difficulty with some aspects of the card handling. That is, Oz is very smooth and quick and gives nothing away.

I am much more bumbling but I've gotten around that by "telling a story" that goes along with the trick. That way I can slow down at each stage and, while I'm talking, perform the necessary tasks.

That said, with a little practice anyone can do this!

Myopia Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2010
This effect is great for quite a few reasons.Unlike a lot of card tricks where you can only show a small group, this plays big! Secondly, you can borrow a deck. It can be done fully surrounded. But the one disturbing thing that seems to be repeated throughout these reviews is that you can only do this within the confines of a males shirt pocket. How absurd!!! How myopic in scope! To those of you who may not have puchased this because of that proposed limitation. I assure you this is rubbish!! I've performed this with shirt pockets, deep pants pockets, cargo pants pockets, hoody pockets, jacket pockets, even inside jacket pockets. As for doing this for female spectators, no proplem. I approach it with the same imagination and humor as i would in doing it in the deep pants pocket of a male spectator. I keep the jokes clean and use classy inuendo, my audience does the rest to great affect. Remember, as magicicans we are artist! As with any art form the freedom of improv and imagination are our best friends!! Implement these and watch your reactions soar!....By golly Oz, you've done it again!!!

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!
