|Up In Smoke book - Larry Jennings and Bill Goodwin|
This Manuscript is a collection of some of Larry Jenning's best effects.
Up In Smoke
Any four-of-a kind is removed from the deck. The magician blows a puff of smoke toward the cards, causing them to instantly vanish. The missing cards are then immediately produced from four different pockets.
A Handy Transformation
A card is selected and returned to the deck. Four cards are shown and this packet is placed between the spectators hands as the magician explains that he will cause the selected card to appear between the cards he is holding. However, when the spectator separates his hands he is surprised to find not five cards, but only onethe selection.
Offering to give a demonstration of estimation a card is selected and returned to the deck. The top card of the deck is removed and, using estimation, the magician attempts to toss it into the deck next to the selection. However, when the card adjacent to the tossed-in card is displayed, it is not the selection. Snatching victory from defeat, the tossed-in card is turned over to reveal that it has magically changed into the selection.
Oil And Water
The classic plot of red and black cards magically separating, culminating with a surprise finish.
K.J.V. Oil And Water
Larrys favorite oil and routine combining the ideas of Ray Kosby, Dai Vernon, and himself.
The magician offers to demonstrate a new trick, but mentions that it does have a flaw. The four kings are placed on the table while the magician holds onto the four aces. One at a time, the kings change places with the aces until the magician is holding the four kings. Reminding the audience about the flaw in the trick, the tabled packet is shown to also consist of four kings as the magician announces the tricks weaknessIt takes eight kings to do the trick.
New Outstanding Triumph
Larrys stand-up version of the classic Dai Vernon effect employing his clever riffle display.
Larrys approach to Bill Simons Four Packet Shuffle.
Hip Pocket Prediction
A spectator freely selects any card to act as a prediction. Another card is now selected, noted, and replaced while the deck is out of the magicians sight. The prediction card is now revealed and its value accurately locates the selection.
