My friend and I were thinking of doing a routine that involves each of us doing part of one trick or two tricks that are connected, like transposing two of the spectators cards between our pockets.
I'm really trying to develop the idea of doing card/coin magic that takes place between the two of us, I'm not sure if I'm explaning well enough, but what do you think? Has anyone famous or of note done this before?

I seem to recall seeing a similar thread around here someplace. I was not able to locate it, but if you can find it, there may be some ideas for you there already. Good luck.

Tom Jones and Rachel Wild do (or did) a "battle of the magicians" routine, in which they battled it out doing connected effects.
The first time I saw this was at the SEAM convention a couple of years back; unfortunately, I was on the bill and backstage at the time so I only saw part of their act.

Richard Sanders and David Acer have a 2 magicians trick on their "Roadkillers" video that absolutely kills! The magicians each have a spectator pick a card, and replace it back in the deck. Then cards are shuffled, cut, etc... And with a snap their card jumps to the top. But unfortunately both magicians failed... oh Wait... The magicians switch places and they have the card of the opposite spectator. My friend and I perform it all the time, and we have even expanded it to involve 3 magicians.

My friend and I have also worked out other tricks that we can do together. We have a Kings-to-Aces trick that we do as a transposition. He wants to show everyone a trick with the Kings, and I want to show a trick with the Aces. So as he does a Kings-to-Aces trick, I do an Aces-to-Kings trick. The timing works really well and it seems like the cards I was using have jumped into his hands.

As of last night, we developed a jumping card effect in the process of doing a variation of Twisting the Aces, "Hamman Twist."

I'm always thinking of new ways to involve 2 magicians in a trick. As it happens, My best friend is also seriously into magic and we spend a lot of time together. Chances are that once or twice a day we perform a 2 magicians trick.

I'm definitely interested in talking about this topic more. Maybe we can hash out some ideas and come up with some really golden material.

As Jason mentions, we do this kind of thing often. It's been requested several times here at college. (Insert big grin.) Think of it: twice the magic, twice the impossibility (when cards transpose). And of course, twice the dashing magicians. Smile

Penn and Teller do a two person cups and balls routine with transparent cups and manage to fool onlookers anyway. They've done it on TV so there's probably a tape somewhere.

If you could figure out a way to do it, I think it would be really cool if both of you could have a spectator from your side of the audience select a card and sign it. You could then cause the cards to teleport or jump from one pack to the other.

Something else that would be really cool is for one of you to do a torn and restored effect with a signed card and have it reappear completely restored in the other magician's deck across the room.
