The favorite cards of my friends is good, quick and impromptu. I will also use an impromptu style ACAAN that I do called SCAARN which really gets great reactions.

My suggestion is this:

1. Find a trick that uses a regular deck that is a reputation maker and practice it. I do my own version of Martin Nash's version of MacDonald Aces, the only one that I have ever seen that doesn't use gimmicked cards.

2. Do something that involves a move or two that you get down so you can do something really quick that blows people away with just one or two pretty easy moves like a double lift, a false cut, etc. I do an Ace production that is nothing but false cuts.

3. have a card trick that involved the participant and is humorous. I do my version of an ambitious card routine that just doesn't work, but different cards come to the top and then it turns into ACAAN.

I like to think in threes: I have three impromptu card tricks that don't require any gimmicks, I have three stage card tricks that involve other props and are theatrically entertaining, I have three impromptu coin tricks with regular coins, I have three coin tricks with gimmick coins, I have three stage tricks using silks, I have three impromptu rubber band tricks, I have three impromptu mentalism tricks that I can do with borrowed paper or business cards, etc.

Well ...
it would have to be card from pocket, which I am always asked to perform.
Not self-working, but very, very easy to perform.

There is no way it could happen ... and they just love it!

PM me for more information ...

It depends on the condition of the cards.

Can the cards be fanned properly? Asi Winds's Double Exposure
The cards can't be fanned: Out Of This World or a simple force and reading their expressions in order to find their card

"The Known" by Thom Perterson. Mental effect that happens in the spectator's hands. Almost self-working. Do it with any deck; doesn't even require a complete deck. Lots of ways to present it when you start experimenting. Open-mouthed silence at the reveal.
