Paul Green performs the kind of magic that audiences love, and that you'll love performing. Paul was named "Lecturer of the Year" at the world famous Magic Castle in 2002 and additionally has been nominated by his peers at "The Castle" for Close Up Magician of the year two times. With years of experience and thousands of performances under his belt, Paul Green's magic is practical, powerful and memorable.

In The Trenches contains:

  • Jeopardy - This is considered to be one of the best presentations of the triple prediction. This effect literally UNFOLDS (prop included) and announces a series of card predictions that would make Alex Trebec?s head spin!
  • 2 Copper Silver - An eye-popping coin routine with the ever-popular 2 Copper Silver coin set (it also works with Silver, Copper, Brass). There are three distinct transpositions and it?s easy to do. Features Paul?s ?Pouch Switch? that elegantly ditches the gaffs and leaves you clean as a whistle.
  • KB/PG Sponge Balls - Inspired by Ken Brooke, this audience tested routine has everything from vanishes, transpositions, and changes ? all the way down to mini spongeballs!!
  • Mission Impossible - One of Paul?s most requested tricks as he becomes a spy and the secret documents (a signed playing card) appears in the most unusual place. ? A mini-briefcase!
  • Above, Beside, or Below - Coins across that really surprises your audience. Perfect for strolling venues as it?s all done in their hands.
  • Here, There, and Chicago Too - Combining the classic ?Here, There, and Everywhere? plot with the ?Chicago Opener?, this routine will fool your audience ? hard! Not as tough as you think.
  • Four On the Floor - With the help of J.C. Wagner, your audience will scream as they go through the twists and turns of this card revelation.
  • Coming Together - Based on Peter Samuelson?s ?New York Transpo,? this is Paul?s take on bringing two spectators together Anniversary Waltz style. Two separate signatures end up on the same card ? and it uses normal cards!
  • The Rope Routine - Fabulous, great, unbelievable handling for the Professor?s Nightmare. It will fool you even if you already do the routine.
  • Flying Eagles - A classic coin routine sprinkled with dynamic touches that make it a hard-hitting and striking piece of magical theater.

Jeopardy Is Worth the Price of this DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2004
This is a good DVD. Some of the effects require props and gimmicked items that you buy extra. I like the basic content of the DVD, but some of it is just Paul's routine for already known effects (Chicago Opener, sponge balls, Copper/Silver, etc.). In that sense it doesn't break new ground. However, buy this for the Jeopardy effect. This is a great mind blowing routine. Audiences will go home trying to figure out how you did this. I watched it several times and still couldn't figure it out. Oh, and its EASY! No sleights, no fancy moves, no gimmicks, use any deck of cards...you will be performing it in 20 minutes after watching the DVD. This is the kind of effect you will use again and again.

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I did not like every effect on this DVD, but I will tell you the effect that is worth the whole DVD alone, Jeopardy.
In one effect you have a whole routine and you can switch up the patter and presentation anyway you would like. I have done this various times and spectators truly love it. If you perform at private parties and do little shows, I bleive there are many effects on here, you could put every effect on this DVD into a routine and have a whole 30 - 45 minute quality show.
Overall completely worth it and the teaching and quality were great.

Jeopardy is worth the price of the DVD Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
I got this DVD as part of a Penguin Promo, and it has not disappointed me. I wasn't expecting a lot since I had never heard of Paul Green, and the video style is a little drab, but other than that, the material is excellent. Jeopardy completely fooled me when I saw it initially, and only now have I discovered it's actually a take on a classic effect. Paul Green is a true worker, and it shows. If you're interested in improving your card magic, also check out his DVD on the classic force! It's a must-have.

It is ok Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I got this as a bonus item from penguin. The dvd explains Mr. Green's act. I recently saw the act in the Magic Castle and to be honest I wasn't very impressed. The best trick, in my opinion is Jeopardy. The material is not original and better versions of most tricks can be found elsewhere (books and dvds)better executed. It is not bad magic but I think you could spend your money better.

IN THE TRENCHES Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 9th, 2006
This is a great DVD with loads of material you WILL actually use. Jeopardy is an absolutely outstanding trick which I was able to learn in 5 minutes and went straight into my routine. I actually got this DVD at the last UK Convention off the Penguin Stand. Within a couple of minutes I ran straight into Paul Green himself! I pulled the the DVD out and asked him to sign it - when he saw that I'd just got it he actually gave me his HOME PHONE NUMBER in case I needed any help! Now THAT'S a great guy!

A Great DVD Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
This DVD has a lot of good stuff. There is a really good coin routine that you can use that is easy to do and will amaze your spectators. The best part of the whole DVD is the trick Jeopardy and is in my opinion worth the price of the DVD alone. What makes this trick so good is that a lot of it is completely controlled by the spectator. They determine how many cards are reversed. This is a really powerful mentalist trick. Buy this video and I'm sure you'll agree that it's well worth the money.

A pretty good DVD Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 12th, 2006
This is a good DVD for those new to magic, but I wouldn't recommend it to those who have been in magic a while or those who have purchased other DVD's with cards, ropes, etc.

The one shining moment of this DVD in my opinion is Paul's "Jeopardy" routine. It's a clever spin on the triple prediction effect and I really enjoyed his handling.

Again, new to magic: a great DVD to own; a seasoned pro: don't bother, you've seen it all before.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2016
I'VE HAD THIS FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS. I SAW A MAGIAN DO ONE OF THE TRICKS, I WANTED TO SEE WHERE I COULD FIND IT. IT'S RIGHT HERE, THIS DVD IS TOP CLASS. A LOT OF THE TRICKS YOU CAN'T BE A BEGGNER FOR SOME OF THE TRICKS-BUY IT NOW AND IF YOU WANT JUST PUT IT IN YOUR TO LEARN LIST.

the best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2016
I GOT THIS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. THIS IS A GREAT DVD, WITH SOME REALLY COOL TRICKS. I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE A MAGICIAN CAME TO A CLUB I WAS AT AND GAVE A FEW OF THE TRICKS ON THIS DVD. HE SAID HE WOULD GET IT AND I DID. A LOT OF THE TRICKS ARE NOT FOR BEGINNERS. BUT IF YOU HAVE MID LEVAL TALLENT GET IT.
