Each Martin Lewis DVD features six strong, audience tested, stand up effects plucked from his own Cabaret act. Martin shows you, in a step-by-step hands on guide, how to make the "props" on your kitchen table quickly and easily with only basic tools and materials and needing no special skills. Then, in live performance, see how the apparatus is used to really make magic

Volume One Routines:

  • Big Switch
    A great MC bit. Attempting to right a wrong the peformer shows the audience how to switch a card... Literally!
  • Snacks Alive!
    Martin's take on the classic vanishing bottle. The delayed climax provides a pleasing ending without insulting the audiences intelligence. Perfect for both children and adults.
  • Come-Back Card
    A very visual card effect for the platform. A card keeps jumping to the face of a pack, which is out of the performers hands. Created by Martin's father Eric Lewis.
  • Technicolor Prediction
    A prediction effect with built in comedy that leads up to a suprising finale. Easy to customize for different audiences. Each time the outcome is different.
  • Ripstix
    The classic Chinese Sticks never had much of a finish until now. This one leaves the audience really baffled.
  • Cardiographic
    Yes you can make one, it's easier than you think! For the first time on videotape Martin reveals all of the details and subtle touches that brings his sketchpad card rise effect into the miracle class.

The first and the second video, is of my videos recommended and favorite all time, Martin explains like presenting an effect and how to making it, really he teaches to you how to make and to prepare magic, its effect of card appearance, which realises showing its empty hands by both sides and with a smooth movement,
is allucinating.

This video is one of those videos in which you did not stop to learn and that you can see very many times
since you always found something in its words that escaped the previous time that you see.

This is a great DVD and Martin is an excellent teacher. I bought this for Cardiographic alone, and its a steal for this price. Plenty of other effects here that a great, But cardiographic is worth it considering it retails for nearly 0!!!

Very enjoyable dvd, and it shows you (*mostly) everything you need to do to build everytrick on the dvd.

There are a few exceptions though.

On CardioGraphic, the main "thing" is just described as 'thin card'. It would help to
a: know HOW thin
b: know what it's called
c: know where to get it.

The same thing occurs on the Technicolor Prediction. He paints the cardboard (off screen, since he goes outside), but DOESN'T paint the edge. And he doesn't explain how.

But for the most part, the magic is very nice, and the explanations are enough to allow you to build the props.

Just a little more info and this would have been 5 stars.

Still highly recommended
