Curiouser & Curiouser - magic

Chris Congreave's Curiouser and Curiouser was written for workers by a true worker. It's filled with more than 20 practical and commercial routines for the close-up performer, as well as two insightful essays on performing close-up magic at events, dealing with alpha males, pocket management, approaching a table and much more.

Contents

  • Dead Cut Prediction: A freely thought-of card is written on the back of the Jokers.
  • Anniversary in my Pocket: Chris's unique take on the classic Anniversary waltz
  • Upper Hand: A super cool 4 for 4 transposition card trick
  • Whoops: A fun card routine where the spectator signs the back of the card instead of the face. This is the PERFECT backup trick for when a spectator accidentally signs the back of a card before you start an ambitious card routine or another signed card trick.
  • Cut, Stop, Think: A mind-boggling card magic routine that predicts exactly what card the spectator will stop at, cut to and think of.
  • Stop and Think: An abbreviated version of the "Cut, Stop, Think" trick that uses a different method to make it a real worker.
  • Drawn: A super commercial card trick that leaves your spectator with a brilliant souvenir. This hidden gem was only available in the past via a limited run booklet.
  • Re-Drawn: A different take on "Drawn."
  • Coin to Anywhere: An aptly named coin magic miracle
  • Mental Coins: A clever idea by Gary Jones that allows you have a freely predicted number on a coin.
  • Card at Almost Any Number: A total magician fooler with a super commercial kicker ending that's never been published anywhere else
  • Locked, Marked and Reloaded: The continued evolution of a trick called "Marked Cards" that appeared in Chris' first book.
  • A Freely Named Card: As the name implies, a freely named joker appears written on the back of 2 Jokers you remove from your pocket
  • Stickman Stan: A really commercial routine that leaves the spectator with a brilliant souvenir and is great for kids and adults alike.
  • Turbo Card: A turbo stick is combined with a card trick to create visual fast-paced magic.
  • Hopping Lemon: A super practical and commercial coin routine for table-hopping magicians that has a "chop cup" feel and a kicker ending they'll never see coming.
  • Destination Amazed: A mentalism trick using business cards to predict a freely thought of destination .
  • Thanks to Dave: Using 4 pieces of a ripped-up card, it changes into a selected card 1 piece at a time.
  • Comedy Card to Wallet: Routine and prop included
  • 52 on 1 Kickback Thingy: A cleverly unique way to use a 52 on 1 card that results in it transforming into a thought-of card
  • Lucky Card - Card in Lanyard: Previously featured in Chris' "At the Table Lecture", this book features both the original and an updated handling that removes the use of gimmicks.
  • Gambit: A nice coin prediction effect using a gaff you probably already own.
  • GMT: A quick impromptu card trick from Gary Jones.
  • Whoops: A fun card routine where the spectator signs the back of the card instead of the face. This is the PERFECT backup trick for when a spectator accidentally signs the back of a card before you start an ambitious card routine or another signed card trick.
  • Dr. Daley's Mystery: Using a shuffled deck, "Dr. Daley's Last Trick" combines with the classic "Mystery Card" plot.
  • Coin Prediction: You ask a spectator to guess how much money is in handful of change. They say £2.57. When you display it there is £1.64 (or whatever). You then go on to predict what coin they will finish with, whether its heads or tails and for the finale, you reveal that you had predicted £2.57 too. (No PW)
