How would you like to perform a powerful show that's guaranteed to make an unforgettable impression...a show filled with surprise, mystery, fun and enchantment...a big show that's fun to watch, and even more fun to perform!?

If so, then welcome to Dan Harlan's Pack Small Plays Big Video and DVD series. These four volumes are a sensational collection of complete shows featuring the most fascinating magic to ever pop out of a briefcase. Harlan has been performing and teaching magic for over 25 years, and now he's going to teach you how to make a substantial impression with a practical, easy-to-pack, Show In A Briefcase!

You'll learn how to deliver a professional show with maximum impact and minimum set-up. After Dan performs the entire show in front of a live audience, he opens up his briefcase and teaches you step-by-step, how everything is done. He explains how to organize the show, why particular effects are chosen, how to make the necessary props, where they are placed in the case, handling the props during the show, and what to do with them when you're done.

Once you've learned the magic contained in this series, you'll be able to perform an incredible stand-up show anywhere on a moment's notice!

(This review is for Harlan Stand Up With Cards, DVD)
As with all the other DVDs in the Harlan "Packs Small, Plays Big" series, this is a fully pattered, fully routined show of tricks and effects by Dan himself and other people.

This is the Stand Up With Cards volume, and probably my least favorite out of the set. Regardless, this is still a FANTASTIC DVD. Anytime you can find an original, pattered stage show, it is a good deal (especially one that deals only with cards!).


I definitely don't recommend stealing Dan's patter or the way he does any of these effects. I just have to say that having somewhere to start is ALWAYS good, especially if you don't have a show to begin with.

Anyway, each effect is originally presented in front of a live audience (albeit L&L). Then, afterwards, you are taken in the back, into a studio where Dan proceeds to METICULOUSLY go over each effect. Even a beginner will have NO questions of how to do these effects, as Dan is an excellent teacher.

I love the old Packs Flat, Plays Big series and this is no exception. Harlan's presentational style doesn't fit me, but that shouldn't sway you from this DVD. I like the Rodeo and Shooting effects the best. In my area, which is horse country, this plays well. I wouldn't advise doing this show "as-is", but you could get 2 or 3 effects from this DVD and have some great material for your Stand-Up show!
