On Thursday, August 9 at 7 pm, Midwest Magic (9706 Franklin Av., Franklin Park, Illinois) is proud to present:

Paul Cummins

Do You Do FASDIU? Tour-
FASDIU is an acronym for "...from a shuffled deck in use..." and is
the basis for my current lecture. All the card routines performed and
taught in the lecture may be done with any deck of cards handed to you
by anyone, anytime. There are no complicated set-ups or
pre-arrangements, and, with the exception of one routine, there are no
gaffs involved. In fact, in the one routine that does use gaffs you
may start and end with a clean borrowed deck and the gaffs are
introduced openly, and without sleights. In fact, the routine is built
so that your audience may inspect the principle cards!

The routines in the lecture range in skill level from nearly
self-working to some that are rather challenging. Also included in the
lecture, and in the lecture notes, are some coin routines. I use all
of these routines professionally - many of them have been in my
repertoire for over 20 years while doing bar magic, strolling magic,
and table-hopping. I use all of the routines socially too - you don't
need a tux, topit, sleeves, pulls or any other apparatus, just the
borrowed, shuffled deck!

The format of the lecture is as follows: I will perform a set of
routines, usually about 5 or 6 items. Then, of course, I explain how
the tricks are performed, including those tips that can only come from
years of having performed the routines in real life working
situations. During the break, I will stroll through the lecture
audience performing a stand up coin routine that is not acceptably
performed while standing in front of the group. After the break, I'll
perform another set of routines and explain them as well. The lecture
usually takes just over two hours, sometimes a bit longer. I can
shorten it if necessary for a convention venue in which an hour to an
hour and a half is standard.

This is not a dealer show, in fact since all the routines (with few
exceptions) are performed with any deck and/or real coins, I do not
have tables and tables full of bagged items to sell. I do have the
lecture notes and a few related items for sale. Every routine that I
perform at the lecture will be fully explained with no exceptions!

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25.00 at the door and seating is in order of reservation, so call today !! (847) 455-4288
