What The Audience Sees:

ďSo I was trying to turn the screws to Jamie this week, you know, hassling him about how if he was any good, he would take my watch or something. Well, he looks at me and tells me that he didnít need my watch, as he had my identity. He told me that he had already taken my Driverís License! He asked me to take it out of my wallet but, if possible, to not look at it. I know exactly where it is, so I took it out without looking and handed it to him. What a sucker I was! Because he laughed and simply said, ďWell, that was easy. I told you I had your driverís license! And you gave it to me! That means itís mine nowÖĒ Now hereís the thing- when he turned it around, it was actually his. It was HIS LICENSE!!! He somehow put his license in my wallet! And then he took his wallet, opened up a zippered compartment and pulled mine out!!! It was nuts!! Iím never wearing my watch around him again. Or bringing my wallet!!!Ē

How It Went:

If youíve been following Magic Friday for any length of time, you probably know that I have a serious wallet problem. I mean, serious. I have enough wallets to start my own leather goods store. I could probably take them all apart and have enough leather for some sort of tent. But what can you do? Iím an addict! And I switch them from time to time as the seasons change. But now? Whoowee. I might have one that Iíll be using for a veeeeeery long time. I love this wallet. And the routine with the license is absolutely killer! Not only did I do this all day on Friday, but Iíve been using this all throughout December at my holiday gigs. And itís awesome.

What I love most is the ability to bust something out, immediately, whenever someone comments on their wallet or watch after learning that Iím a magician. Egad, I get tired of that! Well, not any more, lol~ because this plays so strong! It really is a premise that strikes home, because the spec has already planted the seed in their own minds that I have the ability that Iím about to show. The craziest part is when people were trying to take their license out without looking at it- it was funny to see how many people could actually do it. I would then follow it with the simple line, ďAre you sure this is yours?Ē before going into the, ďThat was easy!Ē premise.

A great friend of mine told me the best wallet a magician can have is the wallet he uses. And, even though Iím happy to say Iíve used all of my wallets, I can honestly say that Iíve never used one as much as the Super Slim. Normally I never bring my wallet to gigs (pocket space is crucial!) but this has made the exclusive Pocket List. Not only that, but I use it all the time in my regular life as well. Awesomenss all around.

The Difficulty:

You need to practice. Thatís a given for this one. That said, itís not like your doing a hundred faros in a row or something. You just need to have a certain smoothness of action.. 2/5.

Best Lines:

~He slowly took his license back and starting looking through his wallet to see if anything else was missing, lol.

ďWhen did you do it?! I didnít feel a thing!Ē
~Thereís something about this effect that really has a ring of truth to the whole thing. They honestly believe you put your own license into their wallet, and took theirs.

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 TTís 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 canít figure out how a trick is done. A high rating means he has no idea.

This is a hard one to rate. Angry Bob has seen Card to Wallet before, so it was hard to gauge if it ďfooledĒ him. He only started talking about this time his uncle took someoneís wallet for real, blah, blah, blah. 3/5.

My Rating:

Magic Friday Approved!

Any time something makes my working gig pocket list, itís a keeper. A true find!

The JDG Tip:


Watch it here!

Iíll also list everything that can go into the wallet (in case youíd like to use it as your everyday, like myself). Letís see what Iíve got in hereÖ

Left side: Pen. NFW, Powerball 60, an envelope with prediction, various paper money (folded), Extreme Burn.
Right side: Driverís license, 20 business cards, 4 plastic cards (Atm, CC, etc.)
Mullica Pull Out: I actually keep my 3 Card Monte in the window.

I could fit a bit more, but Iím trying to slim down my wallet life, lol.

The iTricks Idea:

Read it here!

Closing Thoughts:

A new year, a new wallet, and a lot of Magic Fridays to come. Itís going to be great, I can tell!

Have a Great Week Everyone!
