Sweet Simplicity with John Carey (BBM194)
John Carey has built an international reputation for his streamlined approach to card magic. Simplicity of method and great routining equals great magic that is EASY to do BUT still utterly fooling! On Sweet Simplicity you'll find ten self working or super easy to do card tricks that will slay any audience. Simple to perform they may be - but the effect on your audience will be KNOCKOUT!
1 in 52 - Carey's self working streamlined imaginary deck routine is a total worker.
The trick that can be explained - Carey's spin on a Dai Vernon classic. Devious!
Technicolor Reset - Four blue backed Jokers transpose in slow motion with four red backed Jokers in an exceptionally clean manner and then immediately transpose back in a flash!
Five Oh?! - Semi automatic card magic on steroids, where you get five effects from practically nothing. Super strong and so much fun!
The Perception Shuffle - A self working false shuffle. Yes, you read that right!
Spectator Star - Make your spectator the star as they shuffle, cut and turn over the aces. Boom!
Somewhere over the rainbow - John's rainbow deck is a thing of beauty. No sleights, just pure subtlety.
Don't Make Me Cross - Carey's ungaffed Brainwave effect where the card they think of is the only odd back card - so cheeky and yet SO strong!
Entrapment - A really cool, self working slow motion sandwich effect that you will love using.
One thought One Spell - A very subtle spelling effect you will want to add straight to your repertoire.
This DVD is typical of John Carey's magic. The routines are short and sweet. There are no long intros to the effects in which nothing happens; he likes to cut to the chase and he keeps the effects simple to follow for the spectators. As the title suggests, and the blurb emphasises, there is nothing complicated or difficult here in terms of technique but the magic is strong. Plenty of practice is required as always in terms of presentation. Some of the tricks do require some quick thinking on the part of the performer where, due to the working, the endings can vary. These items require quite a lot of practice and a clear head and are, I think, some of the best items on the DVD. There is plenty of variety of plot and I know I shall be using some of these regularly. Keith Downs
