Make any signed card travel to Cancun in a very sensual way!
Inspired by the classic Abbotts's Bathing Beauty effect, originally created by Frederick Culpitt from England.
George Iglesias brings us now his renovated version, with an improved method and a powerful effect. A seven minutes solid comedy routine that have a great twist and plot and that is ready to entertain audiences of all nationalities!
EFFECT: An spectator selects a card and sign it, then place it back into the deck and shuffle it. Now the magician announces that he is going to teleport the spectator's card into an enchanting and exotic place, a heavenly dreamed beach in the Caribbean like Cancún. (You can name any other beach in the world, free choice)
The magician does a magic gesture and vanishes the card from the deck. The spectator is invited now, to try to find his signed card in the deck with no luck, one by one the cards are seeing and the selected card has just simply vanished!
To prove it, he shows now a poster with a beautiful lady on the picture, she is wearing a red bikini and a hula skirt, she is also holding a couple of coconuts and a card facing down that can be seen inside her Bra'...
The magician announce that he will make one part of the spectator's body travel in time and distance to Cancún to reach for his card and bring it back.
Now the spectator stick his hand inside and takes out the hula skirt instead... Hummmm the magician says :"Listen, I told you to take the card out, not her skirt" (When open you can see that the picture is missing now the skirt)
Once again the magician gives another chance to the spectator to reach in the two dimensional world to bring back his card... He stick his hand again, but this time he pulls out the top of the bikini out (The Bra) (When open the poster, you can see now that she is covering her top part with the pair of coconuts she had)
The magician assumes no risk, and he decided to go for it, taking the face down card out... Big is his surprise when suddenly and "by mistake" the bottom part of the biking comes out together with the signed card...
The magician is embarrassed and asked the spectator about the card he selected and when turnover it is exactly the card he selected and signed at the beginning...
The magician announce the end of the trick and take a bow... But wait the audience wants more! They want to see inside of the picture! So the magician asks: Do you want to see it? He asked again: Do you really want to see it?...So you can see him!¨ (The poster is open and it "Mario, the baywatch" a muscle guy with a dirty look can be seen)

"It's guaranteed laughs. "
Sean Heydon, Wizard Product Reviews 10/31/2014 Full Review
"This is not something that I would personally perform but if you can see yourself performing it, then you won't be disappointed as the props are well made and the instructions are very detailed. "
Actually, there are hundreds of thousands of words inside these full color, perfect bound, soft covers - and when your participant selects one it is instantly known to you. Been there, done that; what's new?
Behold: One Thousand Words mimics the popular Fodor or Frommer's style Tourist Guides familiar to anyone who has visited the Travel section of a bookstore and offers so much more.
As your participant opens this pocketable 4 x 7.5 inch, 160-page, full color travel guide his eyes will fall not only upon pages full of text describing scores of tourist attractions across the United States but also upon spectacular photographs of those locations and destinations.
Every page is unique - with no duplicated photos, no repeated blocks of text, no replicated subject matter. While the book is not intended to serve as an actual guidebook, all of the data about museums, amusements, hotels, cities, buildings, capitols, national parks, etc., has been double-checked for accuracy.
However, it's those incredible photographs that set One Thousand Words apart from mere 'think of a word' book tests because every picture can be the target for your demonstrations of uncanny mental skills.
Start with a word from the pages of the opened book your participant holds and then go further to work with photos on that 2-page spread. Or, have another person select a different place in the book and continue with the unseen photos residing there. Verbally describe their specific content or sketch it on a pad.
You can describe, with 100% accuracy, incredible detail in selected photos. Instantly, with no cribs, and certainly without agonizing memorization, you can reveal distinct, precise attributes within those pictures, which will instantly be verified as your participants look on. All from freely selected pages!
One Thousand Words very closely resembles the real guidebooks but has built-in, subtle edits that enable your miracles. These clever modifications are designed to withstand casual observation while the book is in your participants' hands but it is a performance prop, after all. Still, if you are comfortable with any of the earlier products Lee Earle has produced (Final Flashback, The Himelrick Maneuver, Double Vision, Urania, etc.) you'll be right at home, because One Thousand Words is simple - and simply sensational!
You can start using One Thousand Words moments after you read the easy, never-misplaced instructions that are printed in the back pages of the book (you can easily remove those pages if you wish - but why?). Go over the instructions one more time, invest an evening browsing through the pages, and you'll be primed to unleash even more of its awesome potential. The instructions tell you how.
One Thousand Words can be purchased from your favorite dealer, starting this April.
Don't settle for spelling out just a random term or two - when a picture is worth One Thousand Words.
We are delighted to bring to you Port Hole. Every Port Hole is custom built. This versatile gimmick will allow you to perform eye popping appearances, vanishes and color changes using just ONE Port Hole card. The DVD includes 3 stand alone routines, each one is performed and fully taught.
Dealing with a mix of wacky personalities, including eccentric magicians and crazed card collectors, Chris and Ben go on a quest to learn the real secrets of magic.
After witnessing an amazing magic trick performed by the world-famous Lee Asher, Chris enlists his friend Ben's help to discover the secret.
They soon discover though that learning the secrets to magic aren't as easy as they once thought. Chris and Ben need to help Lee find something he's looking for before he'll share the secret with them. In order to do that they have to go through magicians Jeff Hinchliffe, Glenn West, and Chris Westfall, while avoiding destruction at the hands of crazed card collector Bill Abbott on a wild adventure filled with laughs and great card tricks.
More than just another instructional DVD:
Eight powerful routines using nothing more than a regular deck of cards.
Michael Carbonaro: Hiding in Plain Sight The Carbonaro Effect is a hit on the truTV network, with twice as many new shows ordered as originally planned. Michael Carbonaro and his team spend their days creating magic that doesn't look like magic, and capturing people's reactions on hidden cameras.
Rethinking Dell O'Dell She was one of the busiest professionals in magic for nearly thirty years, taking command of whatever style of venue she chose to play. Dell O'Dell and her husband, juggler Charlie Carrer, seem to have been liked by everyone - despite her much maligned rhyming patter.
Mat Franco In September, Mat Franco accomplished what was previously thought to be highly unlikely: winning a season of America's Got Talent with a magic act. He did it through a combination of tricks both old and new, charm, and an innate ability to adapt to the game.
You Never Know! How did Bill Malone, who has never acted before, land a guest-starring role on one of the most popular shows on television? Simply by being himself and being a magician - and being seen by a producer who wrote the non-magic role with one of his favorite magicians in mind.

First Look: The Sense of Wonder Robert E. Neale is considered to be a leading philosopher of magic and an innovator of magic effects and presentations. His new book, The Sense of Wonder, published last month sets out to expand our understanding of the human capacity to wonder beyond our limited notions of it, so magicians can create more and better wonders for their audiences. In these excerpts, The Tortured Bill explains an "impossible" fold, and Only a Paper Doll presents a torn-and-restored routine.
The Monk's Way: Discrepancy Find I remember the moment when the Monk emerged, the moment when my imagined audience became my conspirators. The year was 1999 and I was on the phone from Philly to New Orleans with my friend Mark Aspiazu. I was explaining a new version of Marlo's Ace-x-Ace and I had hit a snag. The final display was hitting inconsistently and I had no answers. Then a glaring problem was evident: this was not the right time for a maneuver. This is when the audience is focused and aware. What are they focused on? What is important to them at this moment? This question brought in the light. No more move; no more audience as viewer.
Loving Mentalism: Flexicon This month's "Loving Mentalism" item, from guest contributor Daniel Young, is all about strange, obscure, and amusing words. From hundreds of such words, a spectator merely looks at one and concentrates on it. You try to read her mind, and you fail! She names the word she is thinking of, and when you open your sealed, printed prediction that has been in view the whole time, it matches perfectly! The routine is neatly deceptive, easy to perform, and provides plenty of scope for fun. After all, how many mentalism routines do you know that involve words like "sausage" and "snollygoster"?
Bent on Deception: Advice Column When Horace Greeley gave the nation his famous advice to "Go West, young man," it was probably great advice for some - and horrible advice for others. I'm sure that some of those who took his advice stepped off the covered wagon, full of hope, and were immediately shot to death. I'm pretty sure it was also Greeley who coined the phrase "My bad!" (Also, Go West is one of the worst Marx Brothers movies.) Every day, we get advice from friends, family, fortune cookies, news stories, talk shows, and Facebook memes. We are even given advice that contradicts other advice we've been given. We're told "Look before you leap" and "He who hesitates is lost." With so much advice pelting us, we need to learn to take it with a grain of salt. We need to pick and choose what advice we listen to and what advice to ignore. In entertainment, this is really essential. Let me tell you a story.
Classic Correspondence: Senator Crandall to Harry Mendoza On February 23, 1966, millions of people across America tuned in to The Beverly Hillbillies and watched dimwitted Jethro assist "Marvo the Magnificent" and "accidentally" expose the P&L Vanishing Bowl of Water and the Modern Cabinet. All in good fun, of course, but not all magicians were amused. One unamused viewer was Howard Adams, who felt compelled to send a letter to Bill Larsen Jr., editor of Genii magazine. Howard complained that he was forced to take the Vanishing Bowl of Water out of his act and that the magic on this TV program "could have been handled by a ten year old." Magician Harry Mendoza, the technical advisor for the show, was quick to respond. His rebuttal filled more than a full page in Genii and stated that Adams had insulted his intelligence. Editor Bill Larsen capped it all off by suggesting that any further discussion on this topic should be addressed directly to the parties involved. Sitting in his Chicago apartment, Clarke "The Senator" Crandall rolled a sheet of his simple stationery into the typewriter, pushed down the "caps lock" key, and started typing.
For What It's Worth: Don't Drink the Kool-Aid After watching Masters of Illusion, Wizard Wars, Houdini part one, YouTube clips from America's Got Talent and a few more "Got Talents," and other self-proclaimed masters of magic, I couldn't help but focus on a single word. A word that, at one time, the magic community embraced as having special meaning. A word that magicians used as a beacon for truth and reason, intended to shed light on dishonest practices and ideas. What was that word? Bull. If honesty and integrity and creativity have anything to do with a good magic performance, you won't see much of that on television these days.
Walkabout Soup: A Milkshake or a Zombie Apocalypse I woke up on a bus with no idea where I was or how I'd gotten there. I groggily blinked and looked around. The bus wasn't moving. Also, I was the only person on it. I was alone on an empty bus in - let's look out the window - the middle of the desert. What? I tried to think back to the last thing I could remember. Nothing immediately came to mind. This didn't worry me - at least not yet. Anyone who has done much traveling knows the few seconds of disorientation and existential doubt you can get when waking up in an unfamiliar location. However, that usually happens in a hotel room. Not on an empty bus in the middle of a desert.
