Larry Jennings was one of the most prolific creators of close-up and card magic the world has ever known. For over 35 years, his name was synonymous with the upper echelon of the magic world. As one of Dai Vernon’s foremost students, he created magical effects that have become standards in just about every magician’s repertoire. The material on this broadcast-quality video is considered to be Larry’s most cherished effects—his most classic material—the magic that has made Larry Jennings one of the most enduring and respected names in all magic.
With this critically-acclaimed video, you’ll learn methods which took thirty years of practice to develop. Effects which rise to new levels of ingenuity and deception. Effects which for years have baffled magicians and laymen alike. Simple, yet highly-original plots; seemingly impossible card problems solved with elegant mechanics, seamless sleight-of-hand, and synthesized with naturalness and humor. Best of all, you’ll be in the audience as Larry devastates a crowd in the Close-Up Gallery of The Magic Castle. It’s your chance to witness card work of legendary expertise, performed live and under fire. Here then, is a performance for all time—and the diabolical methods which made it all possible.
An incredible penetration of two cards! A folded card with two holes is shown. Another card with a back of contrasting color is also shown. The latter card is inserted between the fold of the former. It then magically penetrates the folded card! The penetration is visually enhanced by the existence of the holes. Perfect for walk-around magic and fun for all age groups.
Johnny Thompson is one of the last of the living legends in his era. There is only on Vernon, Miller, Elmsley, Jennings, Marlo, and only one Thompson. Fortunately, ten years ago Johnny documented FOUR VOLUMES and nearly his entire close-up repertoire. This is a collection of private magic lessons from one of the formative figures in our art. it boggles the mind how these volumes are not in the collection of EVERY serious magician.
