Lots of mime and focus on the details of what is happening the deck.

"Excuse me sir, could you catch this invisible deck of cards for me?....obviously not"

[to spectator in front of him]

"i'm so sorry madam, its an invisible deck so the bruises will be invisible too. Would you find take the deck out of your ear and passing it to then gentlemen behind you."

"Wonderful, now sir, could you give the cards a quick shuffle...that's great but its much more effective if you take them out of the box."

"You can see each one of them different, 4 suits, 13 values, 52 cards!

"Fantastic could you give them an overhand one of those fancy riffle shuffles they do in casinos....oooh...and the spray the cards between your throw them up in the air and catch them in your mouth!"

"WOW! That was great! Now sir, could you please tell me the name of your favourie card in the deck?....I'm sorry, I can't hear you with the card in your of diamonds?"

"Take out the seven of diamonds and show it to everyone. Can you guys see that over there? You can? What are you smoking?!?!"

"Ok sir, place the seven back in the middle of the deck and shuffle the cards for me so there is NO WAY I can find the card."

"Now throw the deck to me and make it become visible in mid air"

"Ladies and gentlemen a round of applause the gentlement with amazing appearing deck."

"Just as I said, you can see each one of them different, 4 suits, 13 values, 52 cards! Except, hang one some one hasn't paying attention and has put ONE CARD back in the deck the wrong way around."

"Would be totally blown away if these way the seven of spades? of diamonds................oh..................lucky this is THE SEVEN OF DIAMONDS."

Don't forget the routine by Don Alan which can be seen on the Stevens video. I love his opening where he holds up his hand holding nothing pinched between his thumb and first finger and asks, "Sir, do you have one of these?" regardless of the response Don says," It is embarrassing to have one of these sir."
Also as an opener the Fantasma products sells a hankerchief which looks like it holds a deck of cards until you unwrap it to show nothing inside.

I take out my invisible deck. (no I don't - it is invisible)And do other card tricks first.

(The following is a handling. Square brackets are actions. There is no actual ID produced until I use the term ID)
* * * * *


[Take out invisible box and open it. Remove cards. Put invisible box in front pocket. Shuffle invisible cards.]

I have been practising with cards so much. My wife wishes they would just go away. I'm glad she said it about the cards and not me..."

"But, you know some of us and our hobbies. We'll make do with what we have... well at least until Visa gets paid down or our kids are in college whichever comes first."

"Now. I'm left playing with this..."

[Show empty hands]

"My wife says I'm not playing with a full deck... but this is my special deck of cards... they were given to me by my friend Harvey. They're invisible."

"Watch. I shuffle them, I do my best card tricks with invisible cards. See how they dance back and forth between my hands... like fifty-two ballerinas."

[look for nodding spectator... use the good sport... well first ascertain that he or she is not too medicated to assist.]

"Sir. You look like your enjoying self. Well at least until now. Guess what you've won tonight's audience participation award. Do you know what this means. Right exactly. You get to participate. So, Let's do the world famous ace of spades trick. [Aside to the rest of the audience]. This is Harvey's favourite"

"I am going to shuffle these cards. You pick the Ace of Spades. Then I tell you it is the Ace of Spades. And you show it to me. Everyone is impressed. I get another booking based on my amazing skills and what's that... Oh right... Harvey says if we do it very well then we might even hear him clapping...if it is bad ... Harvey clears his throat... I really don't want to hear any hare spitting noises."

[Hold out invisible cards for spectator who selects one.]

[Lean in conspiratorially to spectator.]

"You did pick the Ace of spades didn't you.." mock whisper.

[If the spectator disagrees]"Hey man. If you don't pick the Ace of Spades... then this won't work. Then I have to phone my wife and tell her to get out the invisible pork chops for supper. What card did you give me. A (fill in the blank). Here take it back. Give me the Ace of spades."

[When the spectator agrees] "Whew. That would really have busted my chops. Just a second."

[Pick up invisible cell phone]. "Here Harvey. Can you call my wife and tell her it is ok. He chose the Ace of Spades."

[Take card from spectator.]
"Now sir I'm really glad you picked the Ace of Spades. Watch now as I bury the card in the deck. Sir if you'll take all the cards and shuffle them."

[Hand deck to spectator to shuffle].

"I like to make magic happen in other people's hands. It is one of the best parts of being a magician. The look of wonder as magic happens in someone's hands. Plus... I don't have to clean up the mess."

"Now, we have never met before." (Add in other jokes as needed). "Please turn over the top card."

"Voila. The ace of spades. What are the chances of it being that card. That one card out of all of the invisible cards in the deck."

"That fellow over there is actually doing the calculations. I saw him pull out his invisible calculator."

"Thank you sir. Now if you'll pass the cards to someone else in your row. Oops. You dropped one. Ace of Spades. Hmmm." [Looking befuddled].

"Who has the cards now?" [Tada - New volunteer]

Ma'am thank you. Would you please shuffle the cards. Pull one out. Look at it. Hand me the rest of the pack. Thank you. Please show everyone your card."

"Now don't tell me the card... Is it the Ace of Spades?"

[If she says yes] - "I told you not to tell me the card. Great. Now. I have to do something different. Harvey. I need the phone [Phone home] Hi. Honey. Small Problem. Well, my helper... she told me the card... Now... I have to do it differently different trick... Well I don't know what to do. I only know how to do it with Ace of Spades. O.K. Wish me luck."

"Ma'am. I am now putting all the cards away except for the one you are holding which isn't the Ace of Spades."

[Go through motions]

"Now if you will flip your card through the air and make it slide into the cardbox. Don't worry it's magic."

[When spectator tosses it in] "Do you want my cell phone. I think the Raptors would like to talk to you. That was a great shot." I even felt my pocket bulge when you did it..."

[Remove ID from pocket]

"Now Ma'am. Your card was... You can tell me now."

"Three of clubs (or whatever) Interesting. I wonder why you chose that one..."

(There is a great odd/out ID handling posted here
which I have been doing now)

"As you know... you could have picked any card... and you tossed it into the deck. Unfortunately it flopped when you flipped and it is turned over. Excellent shot though!"

"And the one flipped over card is...."

[Actually show two and look surprised.]

"There should be one... hmmm"

[Show first card] "Ace of Spades. Hmmm that was your card Sir. And [showing the card back] not the Ace of Spades... Tada thank you very much."

[Bow. Wait] "What's that... Harvey says he doesn't think it is her card."

"Ma'am your card is not the Ace of Spades. See this card is not the Ace of Spades. [Argue with Harvey] Look you are not helping me. I can do this better alone. Fine. Don't help me. What magician uses a rabbit nowadays anyway. Fine leave. Fine."

"Ma'am Harvey said before he left that nobody believes this is your card. Again, what was your card?"

[Turn over card in indignation] "Right the three of clubs. And this is [look pleasantly surprised and pleased] the three of clubs. Well, I'll be. It must be my lucky rabbit's foot. My rabbit's food (remembering) Harvey... come back..."

"Thank you"

* * * * * *
For your consideration... Have fun.
cheers - El Lamo.

I will explain the Ace handling in pm as it will probably flag something to you

I give the invisible deck to someone and say:"please, shuffle the cards". normaly the spectator will shuffle the cards and I replay:"first take them out of the box".

Now when you do this routine to a magician he will usaly take the cards out of the case and start shuffle (trying to outsmart the entertainer and showing that he knows this joke)

when he is shuffling I say to him:"sorry, you forgot to take of the 2 rubberbands".

First of all, I do have to warn you, my success rate on this is only about one in fifty two, so let's just see if the odds are with us.

When you are holding up and displaying the invisible deck, say tongue in cheek. "Not many people have seen one of these!"

This is a mentalist bit with the ID or BD.
You can use a 52 in 1 card and go through the usual bit that you made a prediction. They name any card and show that you do in fact have that card. This always gets a laugh when they realize you couldn't miss. Then explain you were just kidding but you really did make a prediction before the show. Take out your invisible or brainwave deck out using whatever by play turns you on. Important that they see that all the cards are in the same direction but that only one card in the entire deck is turned over. Slowly reveal the freely chosen card.
