I Hate David Copperfield Trick by Geoff Williams (DVD) Hands down the sweetest, most loving (and eye-poppingly visual) trick of the year. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
The performer asks, "Would you like to see the I Hate David Copperfield trick? Do you know why I call it that? Because "I Hate David Copperfield". I actually don't hate him. He's a really nice guy and a great magician... it's just that every time people find out I'm a magician they start comparing me to him. "Can you walk through the Great Wall of China?" "Can you make the Statue of Liberty disappear?" "Do you date a super model?" That last one hurts the most. So I decided to do something Copperfield can't do. A close-up illusion that happens right before your eyes."

Very good effect, but... Report this review

This is very visual, and reasonably easy to do. There are no real sleights involved, but you do need to work out the routine sequence. The one downside is that the cards aren't examinable... and given what you're showing the spectator, they're going to have a strong urge to want to check them out.
The only thing I don't get is, why would anyone want to buy this as a stand-alone effect, when for a few dollars more, you can get Miracles For Mortals in which Williams covers this effect, plus another hour+ of pretty solid material? Given this choice, I'd definitely opt for the full DVD, and make the gimmick myself. It's simple enough to do that I wouldn't recommend paying a premium for it.

Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer B_Magic! I recently had the pleasure of meeting Geoff Williams and seeing this effect live and in person from the master himself before buying it. It really is an amazing effect that will get reactions! If you like packet tricks, and you want something that packs small but plays HUGE, you need to pick this up. With proper performance and practice (as with all effects), this one will make jaws hit the floor.
Amazingly visual! Report this review

The best thing about this effect is that it is super visual. The card truly looks like it's melting through the other cards. Plus, it is super simple to do. I was able to perform it within a day of receiving it. The reactions are huge! But you have to make sure the audience is really paying attention because if they are not paying close attention, they might miss it. Very visual and is not a pick a card trick.

Its a good trick, very easy to do and hard hitting. There isnt much more to ask for. I would recommend this to anyone who is just getting in to card magic.
The I hate Copperfield card illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 11th, 2009
Sometimes the simpler the better.
This is one illusion that belongs in the 'Most effective but easiest to do" category.
Because of an injury to my left hand incured during the Viet Nam war I am unable to do most card tricks so an illusion of this type is perfect for me. The 'wow' factor is a 10.
I recommend it to everyone who loves close-up magic.
Amazing Trick, but... Report this review

This is Larry Jennings' "Close Up Illusion." I love Geoff Williams' creativity, and his presentation is interesting (except, I love David Copperfield,) however, as far as I know it's not his trick to teach, unless he bought the rights. Also, Williams teaches this effect on "Miracles for Mortals" which I whole-heartedly recommend, and is a better value for your money.
Great Easy Effect Report this review

I just want to say, I am sometimes a little critical of some of the magic sold. I have to say this makes up for several of the past bad choices I have made. I love this effect, presentation and simplicity. Will start putting this to work ASAP.

Everything Geoff makes is great and this is just another one of his wonderful effects. Highly recomended. You will carry it with you everywhere you go.
Easy to make the simple gimmick.

I have seen Geoff Williams perform and teach this live at A lecture he did for our Mystic 13 magic club. He is a great performer as well as a great teacher of magic and this effect is fantastic and looks Amazing! You should defiantly get this and check out his other DVDs you won't regret it!
A little overpriced I would say.... Report this review

Don't get me wrong. It's a good trick. I just don't think it should be being sold for 19.95 when it is the first trick on a particular card trick video. I won't name specifics.
Just saw it last night actually and it's the same trick.
I did like the last little move in this demo video though.
