What will he teach?
- Any Card at Any Number: Matthew’s new streamlined version with just 2 decks & instant reset.
- The Gum Thing: A piece of gum is popped out of a gum packet, chewed and then goes back in time to
appear, sealed back in the gum packet.
- Black I: A card is chosen and signed and lost in the deck. A large black letter I is drawn on the back of the top card of the deck. The I vanishes, travels down into the deck and appears on the signed selection
- Sweet: Mentalism with four borrowed sugar packets (instant reset/no prep required).
- Knife A King: Hilarious find a card revelation. This one is X-Rated because of the language used. Really
cool little bit for nightclub and bar audience but it does use strong language.
- Improved Vanishing Card Case: Great card case vanish. Gimmick does have to be constructed, but once
made will last forever (instant reset).
- The Naked Mind Reading Magician: Mentalism card revelation. Funny & a little risque, but no suggestive language used.
