FISM award-winner Henry Evans is back to take you on a
guided tour to the other side of illusion – where the
impossible becomes possible and wonderful, surprising
and often humorous things happen. If you enjoyed his
last critically-acclaimed DVD offering, Something More
Than An Illusion, you’ve already had a glimpse into
the whimsical world of Henry Evans. If you haven’t,
you’re in for a rare treat indeed.
Here’s what you’ll see during your journey to the
other side of illusion:
Volume # 1
IMPOSSIBLE CONTROL 1 – Regardless of how many card
discoveries you already know, you’ve never seen one
like this! A selected card is found by the performer
in a humorous way under impossible circumstances. The
spectators shuffle and the performer never sees any
cards until the revelation!
IMPOSSIBLE CONTROL 2 – Another jaw-dropping card
discovery as the performer finds a selected card
returned to a random position in the deck at the
position named by the spectator himself!
MEMORIZED DECK – A two-deck stunner that will
absolutely convince your audience that you can
memorize a complete deck of cards in seconds in order
to locate a selected card. You’ll also learn some
great lessons on how to add humor and build suspense
in an effect.
QUIT SMOKING – A very funny and unexpected effect as
the performer produces a long stream of soap bubbles
from the end of a cigarette in addition to a
twenty-dollar bill. At the end, the cigarette vanishes
IMPOSSIBLE CARDS TRANSPOSITION – You’ll be rubbing
your eyes as you watch the backs of two selected cards
change colors and are subsequently found in an
opposite-colored deck that was in plain sight.
THE CARDS EXPERT – An amazing demonstration of card
dexterity and control. The performer cuts to the four
Aces and the four Kings. He then cuts to only red
black cards and then to only black cards. He then cuts
to alternating red and black cards. For the impossible
finish, after a thorough shuffle, the colors
CHINESE ECONOMY – A wildly visual routine as large
Chinese coins vanish, reappear and multiply with
absolutely no cover.
FOUR FOREVER – A stand-up version of Chinese Economy,
ideal for walk-around situations with a climax that
features the magic happening right in the spectator’s
MATCHING COUPLES – The performer removes the picture
cards from the deck and, after they are shown to be
mismatched, they magically rearrange themselves by
value and suit. For the unbelievable ending, the deck
is continually shuffled by the spectator yet the rest
of the deck manages to rearrange itself into matching
VOLUME # 2
NEEDLE THROUGH DECK – The performer pushes a large,
threaded needle through a playing card box. Not an
impressive feat until the cards are removed and found
to have no holes or any other evidence of the needle
and thread passing through them. The perfect opener!
RISKY BET – A packet of cards is shuffled by the
spectators as the performer places some paper currency
into a glass as a bet against failure. The cards are
divided into small piles and one is freely chosen.
When the value of the cards in the selected packet are
added, they are found to match the amount of money in
DOLLAR AND QUARTER – You won’t believe your eyes as a
borrowed quarter and dollar bill are visibly fused
together to form one of the strangest objects your
audience is ever likely to see. The two components are
then magically separated and returned to their owners!
FLIPPER CARD – A selected card visibly vanishes from
between two Queens and is found in the card box which
has been in plain sight. One of the most visual card
effects you’re ever likely to see!
NEW K.O. ROPE – The performer cuts a length of rope
into two pieces and then restores them but that is
just the beginning of a startling sequence of magical
events. Without any further cutting, the rope becomes
two lengths again and then suddenly multiplies into
three and then four lengths. The performer then
restores it back to two and then back to one. For the
surprising ending, the rope is in four lengths again
and each is handed out for thorough examination.
MENTAL POWER – The performer correctly divines a
spectator’s thought-of card and then subsequently
shows that the spectator had no other choice as every
other card in the deck is now blank!
KEEN SENSE OF TOUCH – Another impossible location as
the performer finds two signed cards in a deck
shuffled by the audience in a transparent bag while
his eyes are covered. A great stand-up card effect for
any size audience!
FINDING THE ACES – Imagine being able to locate the
four Aces in an instant from a deck that’s been
completely shuffled by the spectators. A very
practical method for an utterly impossible effect.
TEN EXACT CUTS – The full details of Henry’s
masterpiece, the finale of his FISM act, finally
revealed! The performer cuts a deck of cards into ten
packets in just a few seconds and then shows one card
in the first pack, two in the second and so on to the
tenth. For the dumbfounding finish, the deck is
shuffled and cut into three packets which are shown to
be the three remaining suits – in exact numerical
