What will he teach?

Flurryyyyyy! John's homage to the masters of coin magic in this action packed one coin
routine. A perfect visual ice breaker!

Copper Silver Brass Across A squeaky clean coins across with 3 different coins. Strong and
visual!

Hooked on You John's streamlined approach to a Larry Jennings coin effect where coins
are magically hung into the air and vanish completely!

Observation?! A beautiful opening production of the Aces using a fantastic Charlie Miller
technique.

Ambitious all the way! Carey's streamlined ambitious card routine using the Aces. A
beautifully progressive routine with a knockout finale! Worker!!!

Snapshot  An ultra clean translocation of 3 signed cards with no palming!

A Sandwich Trilogy John's three phase sandwich routine builds beautifully to a knockout
finale. You will love the elegant construction here.

Invisi Card Want a fun and interactive commercial worker? Look no further as Carey weaves
his spell with his version of a Brother John Hamman Classic. Imagination and reality combine to
create one helluvah effect!

An Open or Closed Prediction A super streamlined approach to a Paul Curry classic.

One Deck Do as I Do A favorite performance piece of Carey's for many years, this effect will
make your spectator the star! Impromptu and totally practical!

If We Could Turn Back Time A beautiful and very easy to do card miracle built around the
premise of time travel. Another worker!

Homage to Jennings John's tribute to the late Larry Jennings. His version of the ambitious
classic effect. So simple, but oh so strong.

Streamlined Pocket Interchange Jack Carpenter said there's so little work involved here it
should be made illegal!

They Call Me the Seeker John's friend Ed Oschmann very graciously gave him permission
to perform and share this beautiful and elegant approach to the slow motion searchers effect,
invented by Jennings and inspired by Fisher. A great closer.

I think this was a very acessible lecture that gives something for everyone. Mr Carey is extremely likable, which conceals extreme cleverness, exemplified by his "work smarter not harder" mindset in creating magic. He is very good with crediting(except on his "Homage to Jennings", where he appears to have independently created a very similar handling to the great Derek Dingle, and I suspect this was an oversight).
I will definitely end up performing some of this material so, thank you Mr Carey!

I saw this lecture live at the P3 Theatre. After seeing the show, and taking many notes on the tricks, I knew I had to get this download. Mr. Carey's tricks are very accessible and real workers. His tricks are truly streamlined without any extraneous or super difficult sleights. And most importantly, they are amazing. Mr. Carey is an excellent teacher and is very straightforward in his presentations. Besides being a super nice guy! So, why should you part with your hard earned money to buy this? Is it worth it? For you coin guys out there, the coin tricks presentations alone are worth the cost. Card guys will, of course, be able to add some great tricks to your act. Besides, as Mr. Carey states in the download, even though he is a card guy, he always opens with the coin trick he teaches here. Face it, card guys, the fastest way to scare off a "no-mage" is by opening with a "pick a card" trick. Put simply you will get at least one, if not many, tricks that you will use from this download. And face it how many tricks have you purchased for $29.95 that you just don't do?

John's demeanor and style hides the thought and technique that goes into the magic he teaches. These are all gems that will require more performance than finger-twisting. Great detailed explanations for everything. You'll be doing some of these after just a small amount of practice. You won't be disappointed with this live session with John Carey.

A MUST BUY Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2017
If you know John's work or not you have to get this because he's just good. He's got good stuff for Ambitious which some might go into my ACR. A good card force that I can see will seem like a miracle to lay people on how you knew the card(he even says he gets great reaction from it). Most of all he's just great on every level. If you love card stuff he is the man, for making you work less for more BANG.

*Also a really nice click pass if you're in to coin work.

I had the honor to be part of the live audience for John Carey's instructional performance. I had a front row seat and was spell bound by what he was able to do, and made it a so natural.
