The lecture begins with 'Four Card Prediction': This is an excellent effect whereby 4 predictions are written before 4 cards are selected (no force) yet all four predictions match the cards. Next is an extremely entertaining routine entitled 'Same Trick Twice': In this Tamariz claims he'll perform the exact same trick twice (breaking the magicians rules), he then proceeds to do just this accompanied by roars of laughter (you have to watch to see why) and a surprise finish! There are mind blowing versions of 'Oil & Water'. An excellent 'Estimation' effect, during which Tamariz does more than estimate the quantity of cards removed from a shuffled deck, he predicts how many are face up and face down and then proceeds to name each card. 'Hypnotic Cards' is a routine where different spectators choose different cards yet all see the same card, then the whole pack is shown to be an entirely different card, blink your eyes and they change to another card, snap your fingers and all 52 cards are back again - watch this and you'll feel he's hypnotised you too! Then there's 'The Three Coincidences': A trick involving two spectators with two packs of cards, watch as incredible coincidences take place between them. Finally, he performs 'Follow The Leader': With much hilarity, ten red & ten black cards change places one at a time.
'Follow The Leader' & 'Same Trick Twice' are both fully explained. But, this is much more than just a performance and explanation of magic, there's an in-depth teaching on Comedy in Magic. Here Tamariz delves into how to make Comedy, various levels of it and more importantly, when to use it! All this plus details on Theory & Misdirection in Magic.
An incredible lecture by one of the true masters of Magic, Juan Tamariz.
