“The Six Card Trick is Haydn’s take on Tommy Tucker’s workhorse of a routine, the Six Card Repeat. Haydn cites Roy Benson and Clarke “the Senator” Crandall as specific influences for his routine.
"Haydn spends a large portion of the instructional time breaking down the subtle psychology of each phase of the routine. The character’s perception of what’s supposedly happening as cards are accidentally dropped is put into a carefully crafted tension with the audience’s perception of the same events.
"The audience experiences relief as the magical elements of the routine unfold, while the character experiences confusion.
"The combination of tension, confusion, and relief creates a comical situation that has more nuance than many standard comedy magic presentations and even more traditional presentations of Six Card Repeat…”
“The entire disc lasts 45 minutes, but it’s neither too long nor too short. Every detail is included to allow you to be successful at presenting the routine, and with such a little bit of work you can have four minutes of strong, versatile magic in your toolbox. This excellent disc is underpriced compared to the value it delivers.”
