Customer reviews for The Corner of Piccadilly


I love this routine and the cards. I have been doing this for a while. What I love about it is that it doesn't use gimmicked cards. The cards it comes with are just interesting looking. If/when these cards wear out, you can create a packet with any cards. Great routine!



I'll confess that I'm somewhat obsessed with the Three card Monte and love to study different variants of it. Paul's routine has been around for some time, and you can see some top magicians raving about it in the ad copy. (I don't know how Paul Gordon keeps coming out with so many commercial workers!)

What's great about this new release is that these cards are so much more visible (approx. 2.75" x 4.75") than standard playing cards. And the linen finish is so silky smooth. Also, the "vintage style" cards are very unique conversation pieces. So it's something refreshingly different than merely displaying a few cards from a Bicycle deck.

You can see by watching Paul's presentation how commercial this routine is (the kicker really is fantastic). If you have not seen it already, you should also check out Craig Petty's YouTube video where he performs this at a wedding reception. The spectators are really gobsmacked!

I will note this: If you are a beginner to card magic, Paul does not teach a certain move by Mr. Elmsley that is necessary for this effect. But this move is taught in many other resources (by Elmsley, Daryl, Robert Giobbi, Jerry Mentzer, Aldo Colombini, etc.) that you will be able to learn it from many other sources.

In sum: Even though I enjoy performing other versions of this classic "short con," I'm glad to also have The Corner of Piccadilly in my arsenal.
