Right Handed Coins- A tabled coins across.
Now Look Here Handling (Chad Long’s classic)- an offbeat way to reveal two peeked cards with extra magic bits.

Who is he?
Doug Brewer is mostly known for his coin magic but started out at an early age interested in stage magic. His first paid magic gig was at age 11. After moving to Los Angeles in his early twenty’s he had the good fortune of becoming one of Johnny Ace Palmer’s students. In 1996 he won the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians close-up contest, and in 1998 won first place in close-up at the Society of American Magicians convention in New Orleans. He has worked in practically every venue offered to magicians: strolling, close-up, and bar magic, and the stage as part of the two-man comedy magic team, The Magical Misfits. His first book was produced by Chris Smith, of Magic Smith fame, when Chris saw him performing at a local eatery. Doug has continued to produce magic designed for working conditions.
