In stock. Order now — we'll send it first thing Monday morning

It's rare to find practical, visual parlor magic, and rarer still to find good opening effects. With "Heist" you have a perfect, magical and impressive opener for your parlor show. Based on Tommy Wonder's classic "Ring, Watch, Wallet" effect (a trick with a one-hundred year history), Irish stand-up comedian and magician Jack Wise has reimagined the workings of this trick so that they are far more practical and reliable than previous versions. After years of honing this trick in comedy clubs and stages across Europe, Vanishing Inc. Magic is proud to present "Heist."

  • A quick, impressive opener using props that you wear!
  • Perfect for close-up and stand-up performances
  • Includes all required props (including good quality gimmicked watches and wallet)
  • Features three handings and two funny fully-scripted professional presentations
  • Complete with everything you need all inside a beautiful storage case
  • Detailed instructional downlaod featuring Jack Wise and Andi Gladwin

The plot is simple and stunning: you place your watch, ring, and the money from your wallet inside an envelope. In a flash, you tear up the envelope and allow the pieces to flutter to the floor! Then you instantly show the watch back on your wrist, the money back in your wallet, and the ring back on your finger. A quick, impressive opener for stage or close-up!

Along with Jack Wise's full presentation and handling, you'll learn two strong methods from Andi Gladwin (please note that one requires a PK Ring) and his "Modern Crime" presentation that makes the opening of your show interactive, funny and jaw-droppingly magical.

Some of the top professional magicians in the world have already been using "Heist" as a feature of their show. It is now finally available.

"If Occam took a razor to Tommy Wonder's masterpiece, Heist would be the result! A tiny amount of method creates a massive effect" Steve Thompson, creator of Glance
"One of the most practical, thought out, and fooling versions of Ring, Watch and Wallet. I've been using Heist in every show." Kyle Marlett
"I think Tommy Wonder would agree that Heist presents a very practical method for this classic routine." Ryan Oakes

I received Heist today and I only have one word to describe. Amazing. It comes with everything you need to perform in a beautiful box. The DVD is very detailed and very informative. I can't wait to add it to my stand up show.

 

Hank Edwards

Heist is great! It's so wroth the price. Just the packaging and the whole display that you get is way above normal standard. The effect is very well thought out and very practical! I'm really happy with it!

Official review from MAGIC Magazine

From the July 2015 MAGIC Magazine. Reviewed by Peter Pitchford

The incomparable Tommy Wonder took Oswald Williams’ plot of being mugged and the stolen items magically reappearing and completely reworked it into something very special. I and many others have longed to perform Tommy Wonder’s The Ring, the Watch, and the Wallet but have been hindered by the expense of purchasing it or by the lack of technical knowledge and tools to create it. Jack Wise is offering a streamlined and inexpensive alternative to Wonder’s version.

 

This is the rare unicorn of an effect that not only meets, but exceeds expectations! It is packaged beautifully, presented simply, and very well thought through. You'll want to take this out for a spin immediately, but you should fight that urge - spend the extra time it will take to write something that makes sense for who you present yourself as when you perform. The sequence of events present in this effect can shatter spectator realities - they will leave your shows thinking you are Keyser Söze. Very happy, would highly recommend!

IN A WORD: Opener. Establishing yourself to an audience at the top of your show can be a daunting task. Jack Wise has met that challenge with his own take on a classic routine.

Three vanishes, three appearances, a fun and humorous story all within 90 seconds. That’s a pretty strong way to open your show and establish yourself as a skillful entertainer to your audience.
