I am just going to review the Bill In Kiwi as this was the highlight of the DVD. This is one of the most fantastic routines I have come across in a long time. I feel this effect is best performed at a private party. There are so many elements to the effect making it so much stronger.
Teaching: The teaching on this is very well, he goes over every little detail and does not leave out anything.
Quality: The quality of the video is good, nothing wrong with it just not perfect.
Set - up: The set-up to the effect does not take a long time, but you do want to be precise in making the gimmick.
Practicality: This is effect is very practical.
Practice: This effect does take sometime to practice as you do some risky moves to get the final revelation, but after some practice and timing it is well worth it.

All of the other effects on the DVD are very nice as well, but I just wanted to review the Bill in Kiwi, because it was the highlight.
I am very happy with my purchase.

First off, this isn't a walk around kind of trick. If you do a show where you have a table and your audience is sitting, then it's absolutely phenomenal. It will take a lot of practice to get it right, but like any really good effect, it takes time. Once you get it right, the pay off will be huge. Borrowing a signed bill and making it appear inside of a kiwi that's been sitting on the table the whole time it pretty amazing. If you are looking for something to really spice up your stage show, this is it.

I loved the dvd, I got way more than expected. I loved learning the routine for the bill in the kiwi, but the additional show with explanations was more than I bargained for. I wish I had more dvd that had the magician perform a show with explanations after. I like to watch others perform so I can pick up ideas for my own magic. Buy it, get it, luv it

not for begginers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2011
i recommend this DVD to any preforming magician.
the tricks on this DVD are amazing and I am using 3 of them.
you get also carl show wich is a pleasure to watch. you can learn his misderaction, he is very funny (you might think he is a little bit rude) and very talented.
i gave it only 3 stars for a few reasons.
first of all, there are some homemade gimmicks involved and carl doesnt teach how to make them, you will have to find a diffrent source for that.
the other reason is that all of the tricks requires setup and a lot of practice.
i know there are disadvantages but if you want to add some very strong effects to your act, and have the time to practice them buy this DVD and you wont regret it.

Not a beginner DVD but a lot of practical advice from Cloutier on this effect. Demonstrated in front of a live audience makes these even a more valuable resource. If you want to make a bill appear in something other than a lemon and want a novel idea for getting it there this is a must have DVD. I am a big fan of anything by Cloutier and may be biased however this is a very good DVD and will give you lots to think about.

Great DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
As far as the bill in kiwi routine, it is very visual and easy to learn even for the beginning magician. However, the other routines do require a gimick that most beginning magicians or street magicians do not own. But if you have this gimmick (built into the jacket) then you can perform some AMAZING routines

The 5 starts says it all.

This DVD is for people who want to be professional magicians, but someone who's a small-time Blaine-like hobbyist.

You do not need to know how to sleeve for the Bill in Kiwi. You just need to know how to shuttle (or some other similar pass).

There are two outside props you need for his exact routing. The Dream Tear, and the card to sock (which is so brilliant, it might just be worth the trouble).

The rest of the act is wonderful, and what little he doesn't teach you on the DvD; as far as alternate handlings, you should be able to intuit, yourself.

These are moderate-hard tricks. Nothing on the DVD is garbage. The person performing these tricks is probably the best magician living, today.

Don't wear a T shirt! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 22nd, 2014
Carl's teaching is great, and the bonus show (without explainations) was worth the price of the DVD (I got it on the cool box) These tricks are slightly more advanced and will take A LOT of practice but the effects will be well worth it.
My rating will be based on entertainment value, impossibility of effect and difficulty.

Bill in kiwi- Carl teaches several methods and this is one of the few tricks taught that could be modified to perform in a t shirt or without a suit jacket (ideally for most of these tricks you want to wear a Jacket with a slight secret modification**). Great teaching and handling, to make a signed bill appear in a kiwi the spectator has had in his pocket the whole time is amazing. Will take practice but sooo worth it. 9/10

Sports ball routine/bounce no bounce- very funny, great opener, must wear jacket. Colour changing balls with a great finale. This one is going to take practice. 7/10 - I only rate it seven because of the difficulty; plus you will need to buy your own props.

Traveler- (4 signed cards to pockets) Carl uses a few gimmicks in the effect that he does not explain in any detail, which really is essential to having them appear in 4 separate pockets. however he does cover a move to show your hands clean at any point; where you produce the cards from is up to you. I was very excited about this when I purchased it but don't think I'll be performing it. He really only teaches 2 signed cards to pockets. nice though because at any point you can show your hands empty. If you own a different "card to impossible location" (wallet, shoe, etc.) and would like to produce multiple cards, you might like to use this. 5/10

Slim fast routine- easily my favourite aside from bill in kiwi. The sheer surprise of signed cards appearing inside a factory sealed slim fast container is amazing. The psychology he teaches behind it is just as good as the trick. 10/10

Pepper routine- fantastic again. A handkerchief is signed and picture is drawn, it vanishes and appears in a pepper. Carl really runs with the idea of vanishing something and appearing it in an impossible location; the fact someone else has been holding the pepper and they see a hankerchief inside before you even touch it, that's a capper. (This was the girlfriends fav because the hanky was inside before the magician touches it.) 9/10

Magazine Routine- a magazine is signed and dated by the magician, torn and restored, only to have a corner missing. No problem, a spectator has been holding an examined empty envelope since the beginning, containing the missing, matching piece.
The envelope is not explained at all, however He does teach the restoration and the trick can easily be done without the extra piece at the end, however it still requires 2 gimmicks you will need to make yourself and could be difficult for someone unfamiliar with making props.
5/10 there are better tnr without the use of the gimmicks like Carls.

Cards across: this is the only trick I didn't care for much on the DVD, a classic in magic but there are cleaner ways to pull it off. 3/10

Liquid Assest: Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. A spectator signs a small glass, fills it with water, vanishes right under the spectators nose and re appears in Carls pocket. I came up with a slight variation using another technique Carl teaches in the video that doesn't require any alterations to your person, and I'm sure you'll find one too if you don't have the necessary item Carl has.

Coin routine: one coin becomes large, duplicates itself, the coin is "unrolled" into a string of foil and two giant jumbo coins return in its place. It's hard to do it justice describing it, it really is a great routine.
I don't see myself performing the entire routine, however there is a sleight taught with a coin that will be my new standard for vanishes and is worth the whole routine. Obviously you will need some jumbo coins to do the trick, and I won't say much else about it because I am not a coin worker. This will take practice.
9/10 for the coin sleights and ideas.

Overall- 9.5/10- Carl is a great teacher and innovator and though only a few sleights are used through his routine, the avenues he takes with them are brilliant. I was fooled. His show is consistent, organized and all together entirely impossible. It's how a professional show should look. The tricks are amazing and well taught. I really wish he taught all four pockets on his traveler routine but other than that, awesome work Carl!
And thanks penguin for the great deal! If you can get this on the cool box don't think twice!!!
I would definitely recommend this DVD.

This DVD collection is well worth it for the price I paid in Coolbox. It is full of great routines and tricks you will even use in other routines. The second video DVD teaches great material that you can use at all times. The main effect featured in this video, Bill in Kiwi, is great too. It is a great method that doesn't involve some confusing gimmick. Plus you will learn some great sleeving methods. Most of the effects require practice, however they are easy when you get used to the method. Great material, however I probably would not have bought it for 60 dollars.
