Last Laugh by Mark Elsdon - Trick

Last Laugh is Mark Elsdon's brilliantly clever take on the "stranger card" plot.

Two decks of cards are introduced, both with different backs. One of the decks is removed from its box, shown to be 100% regular and shuffled. Your spectator now selects a card from the deck (sight unseen) and places it in his pocket.

You now state you are going to attempt to cut to the matching card but from the other deck.

Your spectators will be impressed by your skill when you accurately practice cut to both the jokers. What happens next is where the fun begins. You now start removing joker after joker from the deck. Your spectators will start to realise they've been had and it's a complete deck of jokers and just when the let their guard down you hit them. Yes every card in the pack is a joker...well almost every card. There is one card left face down on the table.

For the first time your spectator removes and shows his card. You could now cut the tension with a knife, have them reach over and take a look at the card on the table. It's a match!

Your spectators may have had a giggle throughout the routine but you certainly had the Last Laugh!

Last Laugh is easy to do and comes complete with a special deck and a registration code that gives you instant access to a full training video to get you started right away!

Customer Questions:

  • Q. Can I repeat the effect with a different card chosen, or does it have to be the same card every time?
  • A. Yes, you can repeat the effect and a different card can be chosen!

  • Q. Is the first deck truly normal? I always hesitate to purchase yet another trick where I am hauling 1 (or possibly 2) decks around for a single trick. If only one is gimmicked (the joker deck), then I can perform card magic with a normal deck, pull out the joker deck just for this, then put it away and continue with the normal deck.
  • A. Yes, the first deck is a normal deck. There is a very MINOR setup with the normal deck with a few cards, so you can either perform Last Laugh first (and then use that deck for your remaining card tricks), or you can perform the minor setup with a few card culls if you plan to perform this after an existing card effect.
