Do the Harlem Shake - Weekly Recap

Posted on February 21, 2014 by Chris Ballinger There have been 3 comment(s)

This week's Recap got a little crazy--but I thin, in a good way. Thanks for all of your questions and don't forget to get involved in that video competition! I promise the prize will be amazeballz!

Let's talk about the tricks that were recommended in the Recap: First I talked about the Ambitious Card. A great place to learn that trick is the Royal Road to Card Magic. That's a fantastic book and if you do card magic at all, you should own it. Seriously. I also talked about those cute little Sponge Bunnies, 'Fraid Knot, Ransom, and Unshuffled. (Little pro tip from Chris: if you get Unshuffled and need more help with it, the Perfect Faro Shuffle Instant Download is a fantastic reference.)

Later in the video I talked about a few tricks that are easy to carry around in your pocket. Here are a few good suggestions: Innercircle by Yigal Mesika, Coin in Bottle, and the Linking Mints.

This week's featured trick was Cameron Francis' Nothing But the Truth. This is a fantastic packet effect with a lot of audience interaction. If you want to learn more about it and check out the Magic Geek Street Demo video, simply click HERE.

Lastly, I want to remind you one more time to make a YouTube video of yourself performing one of my tricks and copy the link to that video into the comments section of the Weekly Recap. You're playing for a really cool surprise, so good luck!

    I have been doing magic tricks in a certain area for a few years. The people now seem to think that I can do 'anything' with a deck of playing cards. Because of this, I can't amaze them with card effects that would amaze the average Joe. Are there any good card effects that have something different? (P.S. Can you speak in an Italian accent?) Thanks. :D

    Hey, I was hoping you could do me a favor. My younger brother is an awesome illusionist and I was hoping you could do something hilarious in his honor as a surprise. He is performing in a talent show so if you know any give crowd warmer uppers, that would be great!
