what will he teach?
getting to know you - the magician takes out a deck of cards and asks the spectator a series of funny questions about themselves, spelling 1 card for each letter of their answer. despite the large range of possibilities, the last answer ends on a card with the spectators name on it. this is an excellent trick for establishing a real connection to an audience member.
wild birthday - this routine takes a classic of card magic and turns it into a fun routine for anyone having a birthday where you are performing, especially kids. it gets the entire group involved in celebrating the spectator's birthday and leaves them with a nice souvenir to remember you by.
mallrats - a spectator takes an imaginary journey around a mall directory and the magician is able to correctly predict what store the spectator will stop at. this effect leaves every member of the audience with a unique souvenir that they will save for a long time (which just happens to have all of your contact information on it.)
mad about you - a very personal effect where you bring the audience inside of your life for a minute and prove that fate decides the path we take. the spectator has a free choice of any card in the deck (for real) yet they choose the only one that matches your prediction.
baby gag - this is david's take on the standard "baby gag" effect. david turns this quick joke into a miracle….about 50% of the time...and the other 50% of the time, it's still a hilarious gag!
baci - a simple card trick turns into a magical (and tasty) souvenir for your spectators. this effect is perfect for table hoppers as it gets several people involved, takes up very little pocket space and creates a visual transposition of 2 objects.
can i call you sometime - david's signature effect. a spectator is given a free choice of 25 different ladies' phone numbers. a deck of cards gets shuffled (by the spectator) in a face up/face down condition. the spectator spreads the deck and the only cards face up match the phone number selected. a true hands-off miracle! asi wind says "just the concept of david's trick "can i call you sometime" is worth the price of his whole lecture"
