Venezuela’s Luis Otero is one of our absolute favorite magicians, and he is an underground force! His magic is highly original and his presentational style is pure fun. We asked Luis to headline our gala show at The Session last year, and with only a pack of cards, he commanded a standing ovation. Here are three of his favorite routines, never before published…until now.
Penelope Does it Herself: In this ingenious faro miracle, two freely chosen cards are used to create and find another selection. A complete magician-fooler!
Invisible Marks: An innovative new force that allows a spectator to find four Aces in the deck…and as an added impossibility you change the backs of the Aces to different colors.
The Invisible Card: This is Luis’s beautiful rendition of The Mystery Card plot, in which a signed selection appears in the unlikeliest place. It’s a handling variation of Jack Carpenter’s wonderful classic “Mysterious” from his book Modus Operandi by Stephen Hobbs.
