The first and most exceptional definitive study ever written on the WILD CARD.
The classic miracle of the century and forerunner of all packet tricks is the WILD CARD. Many of the routines have been closely guarded. Within the confines of these covers you will find revolutionary routines, ideas and show stopping effects which are diabolically different, superbly written and magnificently illustrated.
The magician says that he feels the on-stage volunteer is a quick learner and they are instructed to do the same with their gimmicked egg. To the amazement of the on-stage volunteer they do just that! THEY pull off the silk; it is actually a sticker now! THEY crack the egg into the glass! THEIR EGG is 100% REAL too and they have NO IDEA how they did it!
A professional routine straight from Cody's stand up act!
A Two Person Silk-To-Egg Routine with a Surprise DOUBLE Climax!
The Effect: The magician takes a silk and places it into his hand. One magical gesture and the silk is now an egg! The silk is shown to have magically transported to the magician's pocket! The magician proceeds to let the audience in on the secret by exposing the fact that the egg is hollow and he was using two silks. Now that the audience completely understands, a volunteer is brought on-stage, given two silks and a gimmicked egg and told to copy the magicians every action.
This is done and both the magician and the volunteer have magically transformed their silk into an egg. The magician says that this is the EASY way to do the trick; the more advanced version is to remove the silk (sticker) and crack the egg to show that it is actually a REAL egg!
