Tommy Wonder was an incredible performer, well-known for his smooth sleight-of-hand, masterful misdirection, and devious devices. And now, a modern master of magical creativity shares his favorite Tommy Wonder creations with you as Dan Harlan presents “The Best of the Books of Wonder.” Lesson 4 is a brilliant in the hands packet card effect that adds motivation to a classic effect. Join Dan Harlan for the Tamed Card.
In this lesson, you’ll learn a “Wild Card”-style routine which starts out funny and ends up fantastic. When a selected card is found to be different from a packet of predictions, the perplexed performer tries to change it to match them. Instead, much to his (and everyone’s) surprise, the packet changes card-by-card until they all match the selection! It’s so good, everyone will swear they’ve seen the front and back of each card before and after all the changes. And Harlan’s new, slightly-modified version makes this killer routine more practical than ever, putting it well within the reach of any magician comfortable with basic card handling.
The Tamed Card requires a gimmick that many magicians have in their drawer. Lesson 4 explores taking an otherwise random trick and makes it a more organic and justified performance along with some seriously strong card magic.
