Product Description

Chris Congreave's take on the diary effect is an absolute killer! His self-working approach combines the classic diary effect with a card at any number plot.

365 Is a commercial, entertaining performance piece and ideal for close up parlour or stage.

Just set up your own diary and you're ready to go.

Effect

Your spectator is handed a pocket diary and asked to turn to their birthday or a day which has some meaning to them. They will see you have written a lucky number by their selected date (this you claim was worked out via the use of numerology)

A deck of cards which have been sitting on the table since the beginning is now removed from its case. The cards may be shuffled if you so wish.

The cards are shown to be different and your spectator is asked to deal to his lucky number. This is done fairly and the card he lands on is the very same card as your prediction which is also held in the diary.

I've always liked the diary type effects. The ones I prefer are ones along the lines of Bob Cassidy's where there is no deck of cards . . . any date is named and the prediction matches the name of the card on that date.

Usually, I've felt that bringing a deck of cards into the effect weakens it. However, after watching Chris Congreave's 365, I'm reconsidering my opinion on that.

This routine has a lot of potential. Congreave's performance of it was funny and pretty entertaining, and he seems to be a likeable guy. Also the two ladies he performed the effect for seemed to be having a good time as well. The only criticism I have of the performance is that it still had a little bit too much of the "put and take" for my style. However, that aside, it's a good trick.

I think if you do this, you'll want to flesh out your own routine, but there is certainly a lot of room for emotional hooks, and performance premises with this concept.

The effect is very direct. Spectator names any... [Read More]

If you watch the video and have been in magic for more than a year, you should be able to instantly figure out this trick. I won't give it away for the handful of people who don't get it. It is an interesting use of a prop older than the performer. This does help remind us that the stuff sitting idle in your drawer can be put to good use with a bit of imagination.
