Carl Cloutier who has won just about every major close-up magic competition in the world including the 1994 FISM World Championship in Yokohama, Japan performs and explains some of the routines that have garnered him the worldwide reputation.
His trademark is strong, very visual magic that leaves his audiences astounded and laughing. Most of the routines can also be used on stage.
Routines performed and explained include: Sports Illustrated:
Miniature sports balls vanish, appear and transform from a rubber ball to a golf ball, soccer ball and finally into a basketball.
A funny and magical routine using cigarettes that is filled with flash appearances and vanishes, structured around a trip through customs.
Pencil Through Coin:
One of the cleanest methods for accomplishing this classic effect. Borrow a coin, insert the pencil through the center of the coin and hand the coin back.
Lit Cigarette in Coin:
A new twist on an old classic.
Single Cups and Balls:
A killer routine for the miniature cup and balls -- the cup appears, the balls appear, change color, grow and vanish.
A fun and magical routine for both children and adults that uses cards, a candy bar and a roll of Lifesavers.
To Bounce Or Not To Bounce:
A clean and magical routine for the popular Bounce, No Bounce Balls.
A battery is produced from a deck of cards.
A fun routine with lots of money and lots of magic.
Running time: Approximately 90 minutes.
