Product Description

Over the 1950's, 1960's and through the 1970's a brand of bold and direct close-up magic was developed in Chicago, Illinois. These effects were punctuated by simplicity, clarity and strength of effect, and the powerful response they elicited.

Chicago magical legends Don Alan, 'Heba Haba Al' Anducci, 'Senator' Clarke Crandall, Frank Everhart, Jack Murray, Johnny Paul, James Patrick Ryan, and Matt Schulien forged their reputations with these effects, and now you can too.

While these quick, direct, simple, baffling effects were common in Chicago for decades, they were far less widely known and practiced outside of Chicago's nightlife venues. Many of these wonderful pieces have evaporated into the ether, for no other reason than they are not the 'latest.' To say that you could make your living performing these eternal impossibilities is beyond dispute. Many of our talented trailblazers have done precisely that. Now is your chance. If you are just getting your feet wet in close-up entertainment, let this information serve as your magical springboard. If you are a close-up veteran, you'll find yourself wondering why you aren't performing these gems regularly.

Contents include: Davebury Delusion; Exploding Aces; Stacked Impact; Standing Ten Count; Red Hot Mama; The Big Stop; I Chink So; The Chicago Stab. All this, and much more, including a truly invisible handling of the Johnny Paul / Jim Ryan Bill Tear. All performed before impromptu audiences and clearly taught.
