Clutch is also available as an Instant Download.

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!

Special thanks to Noblezada and everyone who was at NX08. We stopped by the event with cameras in hand and had a blast.

Clutch by Oz Pearlman Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Teaching: Standard Oz Pearlman teaching, Oz goes over the entire routine and explains the TWO moves you will use for this trick. 10/10

Quality of materials(if it is a gimmik etc): No gimmicks needed this can be used with your deck or even a borrowed deck.

Difficulty: Requiring no sleights (with the exception of two moves that barely qualify) Clutch is simplicity at its best. 8/10

Applications: Perfect for restaurant magic and strolling/walkaround magic. This could also be used for a stand-up or even a stage show. As Oz says in the DVD rarely do you get a card trick that you can do for Hundreds of people.

Overall Rating: Clutch is by far one of the cleverest tricks I have seen Oz do and I would easily recommend it. 9/10

My new number 1 trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2010
It's impromptu, easy, and great.

Literally, you can take anyone's deck and perform completely surrounded,confidently, and easily.

The mechanics are pretty much nothing, at least compared to most magic tricks. There is one sleight, but it's incredibly easy, and it barely counts as a sleight anyways. 95% of the entire trick happens in their hands.

Great effect, I highly recommend it.

(I'm currently performing it at the Olympics, in that huge crowd)

Very good on the spot stage card trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This words well for large crowds and I like that, some car tricks do not. It uses a spector and lets the magic happen with them. Again this is very good.

I love this trick Add to cart.

Easy when you know how Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 25th, 2013
You need to be able to handle a deck of cards quite well. It uses an easy and well-known concept that is easy to learn. It took me about 10 minutes to learn it and another 10 to perfect it.

simple. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2012
Bless Penguin and Oz for putting a full performance in the promo video above; it takes guts because the method seems incredibly obvious. I've been doing card magic for less than a year and I knew these principles, and could have done Clutch (from a mechanical standpoint) months ago. Consider the cost of the product tuition for a lesson in how effective magic has more to do with creativity and presentation than tricky moves.

There's no need to review the trick because you can watch it performed in full yourself, right above. If you can manage basic card handling, you can do this.

Oz offers some tips including audience management during the primary "move," but I would have liked to see more time spent on other presentation ideas and philosophy. I'm afraid that the trick is so easy that it leaves the door open to poor presentation of what should be a miracle. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Aaron Fisher's DVDs, or Nobledaza's S.W.C.T., where some of the best stuff on the disc wasn't directly teaching the advertised trick(s).

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 20th, 2013
The effect was easy to learn and to perform. There was some interesting patter that could be used by anyone which helped introduce the trick. The audience was truly amazed. It finishes cleanly, and requires no setup.

Good, Versatile Trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 31st, 2013
Haven't performed it yet, but it fooled me (I've been a hobbiest for more than 40 years) and I am confident it will fool and entertain lay folks. Easy to do. Oz offers some excellent patter. Glad I bought it. Looking forward to doing it.

Fooled a Casino Dealer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 28th, 2011
Heh, heh... I walked up to the table and one of my specs was a casino card dealer. So I performed the effect and had her shuffle the cards. (Wonderful how well they can do that.) Either way blew them out of the water. The waitress came up later and handed me the comment card from the table which read:"The magician uses a marked deck, and the gravy is canned". That's-how-good-clutch-is! I fooled a casino dealer. I highly recommend Clutch.

It is amazing that something so simple to perform packs such a big punch. Great reactions as it looks like a near impossible feat and you are totally clean wioth no angles to worry about.
Great work - wish I had thought of it myself.
