This is a stage size Find the Lady Routine using any three ungimmicked, any size cards. It can be done close-up with playing cards or business cards. It can be done in children's shows with A4 cards, with beer-mats in the pub or on stage with A2 size cards. The possibilities are endless.
 
Because the cards are ungimmicked, it can be customised to the client. So you can have a picture of the bride in-between two pictures of the groom for a wedding. You can have a picture of the company boss in-between two signs that say 'Your Fired' for a corporate dinner party. In trade shows, he has pictures of the company logo and products on them. He performs the effect close-up at tables, in his children's show, on the street (busking style) and on grand stages to thousands of people.  
 
Stephen teaches you his entire routine with several live performances which you can then use in your show, and also customise to your client. This plays really big, but packs flat.
 
The audience are involved throughout the routine, with them trying to find the lady at every step of the trick. The moves are easy to learn and so its a great trick to teach in workshops. He has performed this trick over 700 times over the last three years. It works with any three cards, of any size.

Stretchy Bands - DVD & Props

 

Stretchy Bands are large hair ties, similar to elastic bands and loom bands. They pack small and play big, are great for teaching in workshops and offer a different selection of effects to elastic bands. This video teaches 26 different visual tricks which includes mentalism, penetrations, vanishes, games, restorations and more. They are just as much fun to perform as they are to watch. Check out the unedited, uncut, no camera trickery trailer that shows just a few of the effects.

Now featuring a second DVD with two full routines (from myself and Alex Fisher) performed and explained along with instructions on where to source your own bands cheaply for giveaways.

1. Y Knot
One band is locked within the other and around a the spectators finger. You wave and suddenly the two bands change places, while still tied around their finger.
 
2. Great Escape
Both bands are wrapped and secured around the spectators finger. They choose a colour and you make that band penetrate right through their finger.
 
3. Wrist To Wrist
Both bands are wrapped around your wrist. The spectator places their hand through the loops and upon their command, the bands penetrate your wrist and wrap around theirs.
 
4. Band through Anything
You place both hands behind the spectators arm and upon the count of three, it suddenly penetrates their arm to appear on top. This technique can be used for band through neck and any other object.
 
5. Dan Harlan Linking Bands
Both bands are stretched out between the fingers and the spectator grabs the two centre strands. When they let go, the bands are linked together. They stretch the centre strands again and suddenly they unlink.
 
6. Visual Link
The two bands are held in one hand, and upon tapping each other, they appear to link. They are then held cleanly by one strand showing them locked together before magically coming apart.
 
7. Through all Fingers
The band is wrapped around all four fingers, and yet upon your command, it instantly penetrates all of them at the same time.
 
8. Finger by Finger
A band is wrapped around each finger separately super securing them all in place. But still, you are able to make the band pass through each finger one at a time.
 
9. Noughts & Crosses
A band is wrapped around a finger and thumb. You show that if you release your finger it will either lock or come of your thumb. You then show the same happens to the finger. If the spectator can guess which side will lock, they will win the prize. Yet they never win.
 
10. Finger Prediction
You wrap the band around one of the fingers and the spectator calls out any number. You count across the fingers to that number, which ends on your prediction.
 
11. Swings & Circles
You chain both bands together and tie a know at the bottom. You are then able to use telekinesis to move the knot either in circles or to swing in a desired direction. Then the spectator tries this and to their astonishment it works for them as well.
 
12. Jumping Band
You triple wrap a band around two fingers and use the second band to lock all four fingers apart preventing any trickery. Yet with a little shake, the band suddenly jumps onto the other two fingers.
 
13. Transpo Band
You triple wrap a band around two fingers, and the other band around the next two fingers. With a little shake, they both change places.
 
14. Torn & Restored Band
You take a band and snap it in half. Yet with a bit of magic, you magically restore it.
 
15. Palm to Palm
The band is wrapped around your palm and you get the spectator to hold their palm to your palm. It then jumps from your hand to their hand.
 
16. Band through their wrist
The band is doubled over and wrapped around the spectators wrist. You grab one of the strands and pull and it penetrates through and off their wrists. (T&R Band Method)
 
17. Knuckle to Knuckle
You wrap the band around a knuckle and close your hand into a fist locking it in. Yet with a simple tug it jumps to the adjacent finger. You do this for three times between all the fingers.
 
18. Thru the Finger
The band is wrapped around the base of the finger. You give a simple tug and it seems to pass right through.
 
19. Band thru Thumb
You tie a band around your thumb and allow the spectator to hold onto the end of the thumb to stop it escaping. Yet at your command, it penetrates the thumb.
 
20. Snap of finger
You place a band around a finger and hold it out upwards facing them. You pull the ends and it appears to pass through the finger.
 
21. Vanishing Band
One or Both bands are wrapped around your wrist. The spectator chooses a colour and with a quick shake, the band vanishes from your wrist.
 
22. Locked Hand Test
The spectator stretches out a band between both wrists. Another spectator does the same within their band locking them together. They find it impossible to escape without removing the band from one of the hands, until you show them the secret.
 
23. Thumb Tie
You lock your thumbs into the band and tie each thumb securely. It would take about 15 seconds to release and tie yourself again, but you can do it instantly.
 
24. Bands through the magicians wrist
You make one or both bands suddenly penetrate off your wrist.
 
25. Finger Jump
The string is tied around your middle finger, and you show that and the first finger together. With a little shake the string jumps to your first finger, and then back again.
 
26. Band through Spectators Finger
The band is wrapped around their finger, and trapped there. But at your command, it can pass through their finger.

DVD 1: 1 hours, 55 minutes, DVD 2: 35 minutes. Buyers of the DVD will get six bands included.

The Key Project - DVD & Props

 

Includes two special metal key fobs.

1. You show the spectator a blank key-fob and ask them to hold it. They think of a number and remember the corresponding item from a list on your phone. The item they are thinking off then appears on the key-fob.

2. Holding the blank key-fob, they make numerous choices eliminating imaginary playing cards until only one remains. That card then appears on the key-fob.

3. After giving the spectator the blank key-fob, they pick a coloured key from a small collection. They open their hand to see the fob has changed colour to match the key. 

4. Two keys with coloured covers on are shown and placed into the spectator's hand. One is removed and with a quick wave, it changes places with the key still in their hand, before vanishing.

Other effects include the Bending Key, Static Keys, Shopping Tag Predication, Haunted Key and additional ideas & effects by Alex Fisher. More tricks and jpegs are available in the data folder, accessible via a computer.

Thimble Stars is a 4 minute thimble manipulation routine, as Stephen performs in his children's show, adult parlour, and in close-up situations.
 
He performs it over 250 times a year in his children's show to comedy patter, which ends in a spring rabbit production. His close-up version ends with the vanish of all four thimbles.
 
The routine has been devised to work around all bad angles, eliminate steals and awkward moves and make the routine as 'fool proof' as he could make it. He doesn't wear a jacket or use sleeves. The only clothing requirements are that you have trouser pockets.
 
There are many live performances featured on the DVD, including some to music along with a full explanation of each move in the routine.
 
This has been his opening routine since 2007 and he has won several competitions with this act. This is Thimble Stars.

The Parasol Act was the opening routine in my children's show between 2008 and 2013. It was also featured in my competition act and adult cabaret shows. The routine taught on this DVD was perfected primarily for children. It required no jacket, no restrictive holders, could be performed wearing a short-sleeve shirt and almost surrounded.

Understand that I had learned a complicated parasol manipulation act but found it impractical for the real world due to angle issues, body loading time, restrictive movements and drop-outs. I also didn't want to wear a jacket. This routine was developed as a solution to all these problems. I can walk onto the stage and perform a ten minute act (or longer) without fear of anything slipping out or flashing, yet still go into the routine whenever I wanted.

For the main act, I produce five single parasols, and a final triple giant parasol after manipulating cocktail umbrellas. While you are free to use the entire routine as taught, know that it is played heavily for comedy with children and while I do teach my entire competition act that was done for adults, what you will learn the most from this project is the holder I use, how I lock them in place, how I display them after producing so they are out of the way, the flow of the routine from thimbles to silk to parasols, the various finishes and the speed and ease of the set-up. What you will learn are all the day-to-day tips I picked up from performing this act over 150 times to audiences below and around me. 

All the moves can be performed by any person of any size or height or waistline, without having to wear any additional clothing. The only restriction is that your shirt must be tucked out at the back (or wear a jacket).

There are five live performances of the act in front of a real audience before the full explanation. 

Running Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes.

Simply Amazing

59 Page Book

In 2011-2012, I lectured to numerous magic clubs on all the tricks in this book. Included is my latest Story-Deck routine as performed in the British Championships of Magic, my Champagne Compass, Love has great Power, Swings and Circles and Furious Bird Trick all retail separately at more than the cost of the book! The Dream Prediction is my currently closing trick in my adult stage Mentalism show and is a sure-fire knockout with any audience. There are two effects with an iPhone included which I perform when stopped in the street and basically every trick in this book I have performed for years.
 
1) Champagne Compass
A Champagne bottle continuously changes direction, until being opened up to reveal two comical endings.
 
2) Heart Paddles & Sponges
The hearts on two paddles jump all over the place, before emerging out of the paddles and turning into a giant heart.
 
3) Love Has Great Power
Ten picture cards are shown, mixed, and dealt into pair but when they are turned over, they all magically match.
 
4) Playing Cards Match
The four Kings & Queens are mixed up and dealt into pairs, but when they are turned over, they all mysteriously match.
 
5) Jack Spade: Private Detective
All 52 playing cards are produced in-time to a narrative about a detective finding a stolen ring. This is the old routine I use to perform before it many updates before its tuition DVD was filmed.
 
6) Swings & Circles
A pendant routine where the spectator gets to control the actions of a small object using the power of their mind.
 
7) Magic List
A list of objects is read out and two people are asked to think of one each. Yet somehow, you are able to read their minds.
 
8) Impromptu Find The Lady
Three Card Monte - Using just three normal cards, no table, no gimmicks or extra cards and all the bad gags included.
 
9) Spelling Packet
Eight cards are mixed up, yet the magician can spell to any card he wishes then transpose the last card with magic!
 
10) The Furious Bird Trick
Four cards with birds on them are shown. One by one the birds vanish, only to reappear on the spectator’s card.
 
11) Guess Who
A game of Guess Who is played where all but one piece is eliminated, that matches your prediction.
 
12) Dream Prediction
A book is chosen, a page and a word. Yet all three matches your prediction made before the show even started.

A Journey Through Space - An Educational Magic Show

90 Page Book

This booklet contains the complete routines for an educational magic show based around astronomy and Space.  The entire show is narrative based, with a story that runs throughout the entire show. It starts at Space camp, where the children undergo special astronaut training. They then learn a little about how we left earth and the first monkey that went into space.

We leave the earth and take a trip to the moon, before moving onto the planet Saturn. We then finally return back home which concludes the show.  

At each part of the mission, there are magical effects that help tell the educational message. Each trick has a number of scientific facts that build on the teachings of astronomy.

Most of the tricks can either be made or bought and help fill an entire stage or the corner of the classroom.

An educational show such as this one can be utilised to promote yourself during the school year, as it teaches the curriculum. It can help obtain more work, and promote your name for other shows down the line.

This book is basically my lecture for the speakers circuit. I perform a lecture called 'Don't believe Your Eyes' which looks at human perception and how our eyes are fooled into making assumptions that are different to what we are actually seeing. These are my notes tidied up into a book, with a couple of added examples for each category along with my social commentary throughout the book making it a thoroughly entertaining read.

Within the pages we look at optical illusions, perception tricks, blind-spots, common presumptions along with tricks in advertising. We explore the early history of camouflage and how illusions played a pivotal part in both World War 1 and 2. Along with popular illusions of today that include fashion and make-up.
