The Show by Woody Aragon
Many magicians recognize the power of a memorized deck, but in The Show, Woody gives us an entire 40-minute show using the principle. With the deck set in order at the beginning, you are able to perform an entire show of card material, with each trick better than the last, and each trick different than the one before.
Woody Aragon is a master magician, and he understands the necessary components of a powerful act. Drama, variety, and a natural build are required to get people to leap to their feet. In The Show you will possess all of these components, each trick setting up the next. You’ll learn:
The Blushing Card – In a blue deck, any named card changes to a red-backed card, and then a second named card changes.
Card at Name – An spectator names any card and then their name is spelt, one card per letter. The named card is discovered on the last letter.
Top or Bottom – A named card is not there…and then it is!
Rub-A-What? – A quick routine of visual transformations and appearances.
“Eish” of Diamonds – A comedy routine with a surprise ending.
Texas Hold’em – A Poker exhibition full of twists and surprises.
Mnemo-fry – One of Woody’s signature effects. The deck is shuffled by a spectator and he picks a packet of cards. The magician guesses every card.
TeleTriumph II – A whole act in itself, Woody has combined several effects in one long, astounding routine.
Woody teaches his own Memorandum stack, but most of the routines work with any memdeck.
