Coin magic so ahead of its time, it remains cutting edge even today.
This lesson contains coin magic that was so ahead of its time, much of it remains cutting edge even today.
We begin with a few fancy flourishes. First, you will learn how to make five coins simultaneously appear at the tips of each finger and thumb.
Then, Johnny Ace Palmer teaches you a one-handed, four-coin roll-out, that IS as hard as (or even harder than) it looks.
And Dan tries his hand at the slick, standard, and still-impressive coin roll, but another friend, Brandon Gerald, shows how much better it looks with practice.
When Dan gets into the tricks proper, he provide a multiple coin production some context and a conclusion by setting the sequence at the Vegas slots.
Then Dan shows you a nifty quicky where a dime penetrates into your closed fist, and he shares some work on the copper-silver transposition with his additions.
Next, there's a neat spellbound-style sequence where a coin apparently keeps changing size even though your hands are shown otherwise empty.
And another sequence combines elements of retention, back-clip, and sleeving to effect either a total vanish or a clean transformation.
Then, Dan shows you a multi-phase transposition routine, nicely suited for stand-up, and requiring a bit of practice for those gutsy enough to give it a try.
There's also a big trick where borrowed, marked coins turn into keys which unlock a nested, mystery box... ultimately containing the very same marked coins.
In a similar, yet tastier, mystery, the marked money makes its way into the moist center of the magic muffin.
Then, Dan introduces an unusual brass box designed to train pickpockets to deftly acquire small valuables under virtually imposible circumstances.
Plus, there's a fun routine with a coin, a bag, and a big surprise, some magic juggling with a coin tossed between two mouth-to-mouth glasses, a poetic production routine to rhyming recitation and Dan finishes up by debuting a working prototype of three perplexing poker chips.
So, if you'd like to stand out from the common coin-carrying crowd, then this lesson is filled with alternatives that your audience will love.
