What will he teach?
Caleb has prepared a full close-up set featuring some of his pet routines. These are powerhouse effects displaying a wide-variety of card magic plots. In fact, during the entire show, only ONE trick involves the audience physically selecting cards. Each routine is suitable to be performed on its own, but Caleb has carefully woven them together to form something where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Holy BLANK – A freely-named card is found to be the one isolated on the table from the very beginning… and the rest of the cards are ALL BLANK! It’s that simple, and it looks that good.
Holy PRINT – A never-before-seen follow up to Caleb’s original Holy BLANK routine. The blank deck visually prints leaving the magician with normal cards to continue the show.
Mystery Monte – A stunning monte routine that magicians swear uses gaffed cards… but everything is completely examinable. However, if you are willing to add something extra into the mix, Caleb will teach a killer mystery card ending to leave them speechless.
Double-J Card to Box – This is Caleb’s “thousand timer”… a workhorse card-to-box routine building on the brilliant ideas of Joshua Jay and John Bannon.
Travelers for Jack – This showpiece is a true lesson in clever magic construction. At every step, Caleb is miles ahead of the audience. The ending never fails to elicit gasps.
M.A.T.E. – Caleb teaches an impromptu trick from his friend Mark Tams: a coincidence effect from a shuffled deck that makes the perfect lead-in to the finale.
26! – This is, quite simply, the strongest effect Caleb has ever devised. A blockbuster closing routine that’s easy to do but finishes the show with a bang!
