Applause by Joshua Jay (Instant Download)

A brilliant solution for the walk-around awkwardness problem!
Price: $9.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

This product is also available as part of a set called "Premises and Presentations by Joshua Jay".
The set is comprised of eight (8) Instant Downloads and sells for $ 29.95 (a savings of $ 49).

Lets face it. In some situations walk-around can be a bit awkward. This routine smashes through the ice and gets your audience clapping and having a good time. Put this in your set and you'll have giant bursts of applause following you from group to group.

Seeing that kind of response is gonna make the person who hired you feel pretty smart indeed (unless you're working a library)!

Hey y'all,
I purchased this trick because I love ace tricks. The demo looks great and I wanted to learn the method.

When I received the download I was initially disappointed because Josh J doesn't teach the false cut he did on his video. My second thought was, I can add any false cut that I wanted. Third thought: Yeah, but I don't know any cool false cuts half as good.

1. Great trick, fun, easily learned.
2. Great way to break the ice, especially with the 'applause card.'
3. Easily put in any routine with aces.
4. No real new moves taught. Its mainly old slights combined in a new way.

1. He doesn't teach the cool cut that he did on the demo :-) for me, that's pretty big, but if you can get over that get it =)

I say: The price is high, especially since there isn't truly any new material. If you like the demo, go for it.

Wow factor of 1-5 (1=terrible, 1=terrific) I give it a: 3.5

The applause card is a god trick but it isn't that great. In the end, all it really is, is an ace production and a signature switch. Don't get me wrong, these are both killer effects, but what makes this trick different is just the presentation of it. Joshua Jay has some really good stuff out there but I would say that this isn't his best. It's still a great trick and I do recommend it but I would first suggest checking out some of his other stuff before deciding.

I've always had a little problem with Joshua Jay's tricks. I don't like how poker themed they generally are, because these usually require some kind of setup or intricate stack. I don't want to reveal anything but this requires a little setup but I'm still not a fan.
The effect is really cool and it demonstrates a TON of great subtle ideas. It's cool, but not really my thing. And it's presented in a lecture type venue. But I liked that sort of. The performance is extended a little bit and it looks better in the actual demo.
The teaching left something to be desired. He talked a lot more than he actually showed. I like how he teaches though. It's really comfortable and relaxed. He doesn't studder or anything. But I wish he actually showed this a little more and taught some more things in it.
Overall, I don't really suggest buying this unless you have a lot under your belt and can learn from almost anything. It's a nice show piece for close up and sets you up for some cool different things you can do afterwards. Plus it's a cool opener. But I didn't like it as much.
