An Impromptu Routine in which a borrowed bill appears inside a SPECTATOR'S wallet!

Imagine borrowing a bill and, with EMPTY hands, you tear off a corner and give it to a spectator. Then with EMPTY hands you cause the bill to disappear. The spectator opens his wallet and discovers his bill inside...the corner is a perfect fit! 

CORNERED is not just a trick but a concept. A special fold allows you to dispense with serial number erasing, thumbtips, and wax. You fold the bill and you're ready to perform! CORNERED allows you to make a borrowed bill appear ANYWHERE: in a potato, in a piece of gum, in a sealed envelope, or in someone's pocket. 

Running time: 13 minutes, 36 seconds.


Customer reviews for Cornered



Best solution to bill in lemon or any object you want that I’ve seen in 60 years of magic. I believe that it would have fooled me. Borrowed bill can be legitimately burned, no thumb tip or Sanada gimmick, and your hands are truly empty as you are cutting open the lemon or whatever. A truly brilliant solution and I have no idea why I never saw it or heard about it before. Surprised this is not in common use as truly the gold standard for torn corner work. Bill can also be signed by the magician but not by the spectator if you want to hold the lily. I repeat, why is this not in common use?



The sleight of hand needed for this is within the grasp of a begginner although some preparation is involved but dont let that scare you off. This is a GREAT re-working of "Torn Corner of Bill to Impossible Location". I'm kind of suprised a handling like this hasn't appeared in publication until the 21st Century. Excellent thinking Josh! The handling is within the means of a beginner and some of the actions are BOLD. Not so bold as to require nerves of steel but confidence is definitely a requirement. However, the impossible location is truly up to you. It doesn't have to be a spectators wallet. It can be a card box or a spectators shirt pocket but you will need to be creative in your thinking of what your placement will be and how to get it there. The clean up is perfect!

It's a solid utility concept more than a single effect (though the effect as shown is already more than worth the price). As others have mentioned, the method is somewhat adaptable to cards, which is why I bought it, and also to billets, tickets, stickie notes, etc. Very useful, and greatly expands what you can do with the "tear off a corner at the beginning to show that the item is not a duplicate at the end" paradigm.



I love this!!!!!!!



This trick is absolutely amazing. There is a setup but it's extremely simple to do and once you do it, you can make the torn bill appear pretty much anywhere you want. BUY IT!



This is such a great piece of magic! So well thought out! Can work for stage or close up. Impromptu!



This idea by Joshua is so great! It's practical and you are set to go at all times.



This trick is amazing almost impromptu but not. You set up the trick once costing you just an extra dollar and you are set for life. Most versions of this trick requires thumb tips and other gimmicks this routine is completely ungimmicked very easy this video needs only one view to learn the trick. This trick is also cleaner than the gimmicked versions making Joshua's version extremely better all together. I highly recommend this trick no gimmicks no pickpocketing a six year old could do this.



The first two times one of my magic buddy perform this, It totally fooled me, I had no idea how it was done. It hurts so bad that I had to get it and learn the secret. I was not disappointed at all :). It's really easy to perform, and once you prepare one, you are set for life. Don't hesitate, just download it and learn this amazing trick by Joshua Jay. Did I mention it's only 15 bucks? a trick that you could perform in the spur of the moment and probably for the rest of your life for only 15 bucks. Get it NOW!!



It is one of those, why didn't I think of that tricks. It makes so much sense and the reset is amazing.



The effect is so simple that it makes it soo amazing if you dont have this trick and u want to do an impromptu torn bill to wallet GET IT



this one is SO good...
you MUST have it.
i personally adapted it (the principle/method) in a card version.



This trick is really really clever and if dollar bill tricks interest you, then you have to buy this trick as it provides a different kicker ending to other tricks. So please do purchase if you enjoy dollar bill related tricks.
The only thing I don't like is that you have to use a dollar bill every time you do this trick and some people may not like the fact that you tear their bill. However, other than that this trick is a good trick to add to your repertoire.
