So I absolutely love performing New Twisted Collectors from the Art of Astonishment books. I came up with some nice patter that really fits well with the effect. It is based on the cannibal cards idea so keep in mind it's not all new stuff. Here it is:

"Ladies and Gents, please watch the following with extreme caution because in this seemingly innocent card case, I hold four cannibal cards! These cards are the four Kings... which I know are cannibals because the K stands for cannibal."

Takes out four Kings and sets them aside...

"Would you sir please select three victims?"

The performer has a spectator select three cards and then they are shuffled into the deck.

"Now back to the Kings..."

He picks up the four Kings and shows all of them are face-down. He then one at a time magically turns each King in the packet face-up one at a time. He does this with patter that follows...

"Now before we feed them we shall have some fun at their expense... you see if I push the cards through my hand one King gets disoriented and ends up on his back... if I then just flex the cards, one King flies in the air and also lands on his back. Rifling the cards annoys the next King which makes him turn around to see who did it... and the last King when tickled rolls all over while laughing."

Next the cards are flexed over the deck as if being fed and then spread on the table to show the three selections have arrived face down between the Kings.

"Now I think we've had enough fun... if you hold them over the deck they'll actually swallow your cards up and burp (flexing the cards sounds like the burp)... now if we cut them open you'll see they have really shallowed them up."

So that's it!

Tell me what you think,
