ALA BILLY

(Based on the McCombical Deck by Billy McComb) A prediction card is shown and you state that if the prediction turns out wrong you will give everything in your wallet to the assisting spectator. The prediction card is placed in view and you then show some cards to the rest of the audience. THE CARDS ARE ALL THE SAME (matches of the prediction card) You smile and say "I never fail." This will evoke laughter. The unsuspecting spectator is then told to select one of the cards and to name it aloud. He names an entirely different card. It will look like you just goofed, but when the prediction card is turned over IT MATCHES
THE CARD SELECTED.Great close up, walk around item. Can be examined. Excellent comedy.

As you speak you cut the deck twice and spread out all the cards faced down on the table. You locate the card with your initials and move it forward from the spread together with the card directly above it and the card directly below it. "Now let's see which one is your card." You turn over one card - IT IS NOT THE SPECTATOR'S CARD. You turn over the other card and THAT TOO IS NOT THE SELECTED CARD. "Hmm, my initials never fail me. Sir, turn over the card with my initials.

We had this on the market a few years ago then couldn't get the proper part and had to stop production. Well we have found the necessary part and it is much better than the original. EFFECT = Card is selected and returned to the deck. A small box is brought out and opened to show a miniature human hand. "This hand was once a magician 's hand. but he was so bad a magician that the magician's union shipped him out to the jungle of some distant country to perform for the natives figuring that they wouldn't know if his magic was good or bad. Well, let me tell you, THEY KNEW. And they don't fool around over there. In some countries if you get caught stealing they chop off your hand. In the jungle they do that to bad magicians. Yep, they chopped off his hand and shrunk it. This is it! And look , they also shrunk his deck of cards." Inside the box is also a small deck of playing cards which are brought out with the little hand. Magician holds both in his cupped hands. "Well the magician was bad but his hand alone is much better. Sir, please concentrate on the card that you picked from the regular deck. Now watch!" SLOWLY THE MINIATURE HAND CREEPS OUT FROM THE MAGICIAN'S CUPPED HANDS - AND IT IS HOLDING A MINIATURE CARD -THE DUPLICATE OF THE CARD SELECTED FROM THE DECK. - - This is a FUN TRICK and a completely different revelation of a selected card. With all necessary components. GREAT CLOSE UP MAGIC. - $12.00

 The MAGICIAN by Jim Rainho

This is GREAT for close-up, walk around work. IT'S NOT ONLY A TRICK BUT IT INTRODUCES THE PERFORMER AS A MAGICIAN WITH HIS NAME DISPLAYED.

"Hi, I'm the local neighborhood Magician working here today. Of course you know what a Magician is - but let me tell you what it takes to be a Magician. ..... A Magician should have a Magic Hat." A card with a Magic hat is shown. "And every Magician should have a Magic Bunny." A second card is shown with a Bunny on it. "And of course a Magician must have a Magic Wand." A third card with a Wand is shown. "So with the Hat, the Bunny and the Wand , the Magician can perform miracles. Watch!" The magician then makes the Bunny appear in the hat and makes it vanish. "Of course what does the magic is right underneath the hat - that's the MAGICIAN.." The hat card is slid forward to expose a card with the word MAGICIAN printed on it. "And that's me - I'm Jim Rainho." As the words are spoken the hat card is slid completely off the other cards to expose YOUR name on the card. A GREAT OPENER FOR WALK AROUND SITUATIONS. - With YOUR NAME printed for all to see.- With special printed cards. - - - -You write or print ypur own name

WHAT A POKER DEAL
You play three hands of Poker with a spectator and never lose.

NEW CLEAN METHOD. NO SLEIGHT OF HAND.

Ten cards are shown and shuffled by a spectator. You then deal out two Poker hands to spectator and yourself. YOUR HAND WINS.

Have the cards shuffled again but this time instead of dealing out the cards you have the spectator tell you whether or not he wants a particular card as you go through them. Give him the cards he wants and you take what you want. STILL HE LOSES.

Spectator shuffles the cards again for one more hand. This time you deal out two hole cards, one to the spectator and one to yourself. The cards are now held with faces showing and the spectator can choose if he wants the card showing. BUT he also controls the cards you get because the ones he rejects become your cards. HE STILL LOSES.

Great routine with a Himber wallet where, at the beginning, you show three bills in the wallet and wager them in the three Poker hands, each time showing the bills. At the end you say, "Don't feel bad sir, look, we weren't playing for anything anyway." AS YOU SHOW THE WALLET - EMPTY.
THIS IS A GREAT CLOSE UP WALK AROUND ROUTINE. I use it on every close up gig and also, with Jumbo cards, on EVERY adult show.

(Note: Himber wallet not included.)

WHY KNOT

Show a piece of rope and a solid ring. To thread the ring on the rope is a simple matter if you were to do it by conventional method, that is, by inserting the ring through one of the rope ends. But that would be too easy!
You proceed to do it by threading the ring right through the center of the rope.
The rope is then tied in a knot around the ring. Two spectators hold the ends of the rope, but still you release the ring from the rope.

EVERYTHING CAN BE EXAMINED.

NOTHING ADDED - NOTHING TAKEN AWAY

JUST A PIECE OF ROPE AND A RING

Fully illustrated with 38 line drawings.
