No Jacket Required by Carl Andrews
Because Carl works at an outdoor resort/restaurant in the South Pacific, a jacket would
not only look out of place, but downright uncomfortable. The effects on this DVD are of
the pack small play big variety. They were developed to be carried without a bag, box,
briefcase, or bulging pockets. All of the finely honed effects from Carl's professional
repertoire can be performed in short sleeves and surfer shorts! In other words, "NO
This DVD contains some super close up effects that Carl uses
regularly at a restaurant in Hawaii. All of the effects fit in your pockets, are easily
reset, and can be performed without a jacket. Perfect for restaurant workers or for those
that just want to travel light and be prepared to do magic apparently impromptu.
- Pair o' dice - This is one of Carl's effects that magicians
all over the works have been begging him to tip. I was very happy to see this one on the
tape. The 'move' will take some practice, but it is well worth the time and effort. A
great strolling effect, all you need is a un-gaffed pair of dice.
- Ain't No Mo - This one is my favorite. I recently performed
this one on a local TV show. It is the perfect sponge ball routine with some great patter
to boot! The effect is surprising to the spectator, the magic happens in their hands, it
is just as strong for kids as it is for adults, it packs small, and the props cost almost
nothing. Hard to beat if you ask me.
- Black Jack - You offer to teach your spectator to play
Blackjack. You do just that while finding a selected card with a surprising transpo. The
set up is so simple that you could do it in a second in front of the spectator.
- B.S. 101 - A real funny way to answer the question 'show me a
trick' The end of the routine uses Daryl's 'Hot Shot Cut' which is a difficult move. But
Carl does show the move in the explanation section.
Carl's Card On Ceiling - Carl's version of the Card on Ceiling. Easy handling and
- Double Scotch and Soda with a Twist - This is another that I
really liked. It is an un-gaffed Scotch and Soda with the surprise of two completely
different coins at the end in the spectators’ hand. The handling is not at al
difficult and the routine is a lot of fun.
- Sweet & Slow - A great restaurant routine. A sugar packet is emptied and the sugar is
poured out. The packet is restored with more of Carl's great patter.
- Hula-Fusion - A great couples routine. A version of the
anniversary waltz trick, but really simplified and can be done 'impromptu' Very strong for
couples, and a sure tip getter!
- Lei'd Back - A great effect for the kids. You notice that the
tag in a child's shirt is sticking out and offer to tuck it in. But when you do, you end
up removing a very long streamer much to the child's surprise. The streamer is maid into a
Hawaiian Lei and is given to the child. A great and inexpensive give away.
