An ordinary pack of cards is introduced. The cards are shuffled (wink-wink) by the magician. As the top card is shown to be the Jack of Diamonds the magician begins to impart this reworked classic tale of Diamond Jack. The story reveals how one night turned into quite an adventure. Every card in the deck is used to tell this amazing and funny story.
DJT shows you two versions of this effect. One is the "stage version" that uses some false cuts with jumbo cards. The other is the "shuffled version" where the spectator truly mixes the cards before the magician performs his close-up or parlor version with a poker-sized deck.
There is lots of punny humor as each card is revealed. The routine is also family friendly. During the presentation you can count on at least 20-30 bursts of laughter. There's lots of surprises and it ends on a romantic note that leaves the audience with a warm fuzzy inside. It's not uncommon for this effect to receive a standing ovation.
