Course Description

In this course you will learn:

  • An Introduction to card magic
  • Out of this World
  • Flourishes
  • Trapped - the Coin in Matchbook
  • Michael's performance of the Cups and Balls. 

This section teaches you some of the most important fundamentals of card handling, while also giving you impressive, yet easy to master card flourishes. Following this you’ll discover the secret to what some people call the Greatest Card effect of the last 100 years: Paul Curry’s Out of this World. I teach the Gene Grant version here, to give you the easiest possible way into and out of it.

Trapped is the Doug Bennett effect that Doug Henning featured several times during his talk show appearances, such as on The Tonight Show, with Johnny Carson. So this Coin to Impossible Location has a stellar pedigree behind it! Featured here with full permission from the copyright holder, Sterling Magic, you’ll learn how to make a signed coin disappear and then reappear inside the fibers of the book of matches used in the disappearance of the coin. The spectator himself gets to tear the coin free from its impossible location!

Finally, you’ll get to see me perform my full Cups and Balls routine, as featured on THE WORLD’S GREATEST MAGIC special.

All in all, this is 30 minutes of performing and carefully scripted teaching and advice.
