This is a bundle of three downloads by the ingenious Mark Elsdon, and each one is a showstopping performance piece that can be learned in no time at all.
Strange Oblique is Mark’s new take on his classic Tequila Hustler effect. In this hilarious version, you nominate one person to be a “liar” and the rest of the viewers to be truth-tellers. You then ask a series of ridiculous questions: “Would you go on a cycling holiday with her?” “Would you eat a taco from a stranger?” And yet, at the end of the silliness, you are able to discern exactly who the liar is. No pre-show, no electronics, no sleight-of-hand, no secret confederates.
“”Very short review of Strange Oblique. It’s by Mark Elsdon… ’nuff said!! Let’s just say that Strange Oblique is to Kurotsuke what Tequila Hustler is to ‘which hand’. Can be performed completely impromptu.”Mark Chandaue
Limelight – This is creator Mark Elsdon’s favorite effect he has ever created. You cause a participant to instantly become the most interesting person in any gathering. Without any advanced training, you take a volunteer and “gift” her the ability to perform absolute miracles with a pack of cards. She can divine selected cards from other participants, tell someone else which card they are thinking of, and do an incredible version of ACAAN.
“Limelight, so simple to do yet extremely clever and baffling. I watched Mark fry a room full of magicians with this, including myself, it really is very clever indeed! This has gone straight onto my A-list.”Gary Jones
NYC Opener – In this effect a card is selected, vanishes and appears inside the card box. But that doesn’t do it justice. It’s a full, multi-phased card routine that is easy to perform (thanks to the simple, but useful gimmick supplied) and is squeaky clean!
