What The Audience Sees:

“This Jamie dude can make stuff, like, teleport, man! He made this card I pick fly across the table and land under a box, and I didn’t see a thing! Check it, I pick a card. He puts it into the deck. BAM! It’s under the card box. He takes it again. He puts in into the deck. BAM! It’s back under the cardbox. He says he’ll do it one more time. It doesn’t work. Why? BAMALAM! Because the whole deck, except my single card, is under the cardbox! AMAZING!”


How It Went:

I think I may have mentioned this before but I often feel like I’m an old miner in the Klondike searching for gold. While sorting through DVDs. Books, tricks, etc, looking for effects for Magic Friday, I get hungry, cold, scared, and worried. Sometimes I cry. And then, while knee deep in the proverbial rivers, I’ll look into my goldpan and find the biggest nugget you could imagine. And it all suddenly becomes worth it.

Box clever is one of those pieces of gold. You can use a borrowed deck. There’s no moves. Brilliantly routined. Everything I look for. Why James Brown didn’t just call me and tell me to look at this is beyond me, lol.

When I performed this all day, it kept getting better and better. I ended it with the deck going to under the box and people couldn’t believe it. It’s just such a shocker. I think they thought that twice was impossible enough, so when you can keep going, it just fries their minds. And the great thing is, that everything can be examined. People would immediately grab the deck and I could just sit back and relax. Fantastic.


The Difficulty:

This isn’t a hard routine in the slightest. You just need to focus and control your surroundings a bit. 2/5.


Best Lines:

“NO IT’S NOT!!!!”
~When I told them the deck had traveled, lol. And yes it had.

“UNGH!”
~This person actually let out a noise like they had been punched in the calf.


Angry Bob Rating:

For those of you reading this article for the first time, Angry Bob is a co-worker who has an understanding of some magic because his uncle was a magician. Angry Bob knows that TT’s exist, for example, but he has no desire to become a magician himself. He also has an anger management problem that can be experienced first hand if he can’t figure out how a trick is done. A high rating means he has no idea.

Ha! There’s nothing more enjoyable than leading Angry Bob down the garden path only to watch him fall into a deep hole at the end. After the first phase he was so smug and demanded to see it again. When I did, he was floored. And when the entire deck went, he was silent, lol. A true testament. 4.5/5.


My Rating:

Magic Friday Approved!

A great find. This is going into my Top 10 tricks that I do with a borrowed deck, for sure. It's basically a combination of Card Under Glass and The Homing Card~ I love it!
