One of our favorite effects involves the Aces: Follow the Ace ("Which Ace is Which", "Chase The Ace"), and a DYNOMITE "Assembly of Aces" ("McDonald's Aces")...
A utility item AND Mental effect!
EFFECT: You KNOW the effect; people like Kreskin have featured it on television and in their live concerts. An ordinary note-pad is introduced, and casually shown. It is opened, and the pages are riffled to prove its innocence.
Magic Mike Likey
In the '80's and '90's I hosted and produced in Winnipeg, Canada, the longest-running television show about magic, "Magic Mike's Castle". The show ended after nine years. Today, the "Magic Mike Likey Universe" continues on BlogTalk Radio, with "Magic Mike's Castle" and on Speaker Radio!
