Electric Chair by Paul Roberts
Item Number: DA9742
Here for the first time on DVD is Paul Robert's version of the famous ELECTRIC CHAIRS routine. A number of spectators are chosen at random and asked to sit on normal chairs. The magician then has the ability to control them with a series of shocks leading to them to performing a whole host of strange things. This can be performed on stage or in a parlour situation and the method is incredibly clever and deceptive!
As a bonus we also feature Paul's working repertoire. The tricks, sleights, patter and psychology that has earned him his living for many years as a working professional. Paul is interviewed by HARRY ROBSON and SHAUN MCCREE, two of the best and busiest magicians in the country, and they delve into the hows and whys of performing for REAL people. Some of the tricks include:
THAT'S NOT IT - A two card transposition that occurs between two spectators and in their hands!
LIGHTENING FAST CHOP CUP - Paul's take on a classic effect. Paul teaches tips tricks and his routine for Chop Cup.
NUMBER'S UP - A signed card is revealed face up at a number chosen by the spectator.
THINK OF CARD - A spectator is asked to think of a card while another spectator selects a card from the deck. The chosen card and thought of card are a match!
RING FLASH - A great effect by Wayne Dobson: A borrowed ring is vanished and reappears on a string with a big FLASH!!!
And lots more...
Also included in the interview is a discussion on Jazz Magic.
This DVD is a must have if you're looking for real working effects, whether you are doing stage, parlour or close up...these secrets will serve you well!
