Real World Reviews
The reason I started this review column was that I felt there was a real
need to test tricks in the real world and see how they do. I still believe this
to be true. I chose Stephen Bargetze`s I Hate Card Tricks for this weeks
trick, and I honestly felt the performances in the real world could have gone
This is a card trick Stephen has been doing for many years to fool
magicians at conventions. A card is thought of by a spectator and revealed
to be the only card in a blank deck. I, in fact, was fooled when I watched
the performance on the DVD. I believed it would fool magicians, but I
wanted to see how it played in the real world.
For the last two weeks I have performed this trick dozens of time at the
bar. It completely fooled everyone I showed it to at the bar, even the
regulars were completely blown away.
When I revealed the kicker ending, you could literally see mouths drop
Stephen is a hilarious guy who knows how to add humor to strengthen a
trick. This is especially true for this trick. What would be a boring trick,
Stephen has developed a premise that keeps the audience`s attention.
The super killer finale, will make this a trick your spectators will talk about
for a long time.
Whether you are doing a close-up show, or performing for friends, I
highly recommend this trick. This is the one card trick they will love.
