Standing Up With Cards by Scott Alexander
This is Scott’s continuation of the popular Standing Up On Stage Series. The second installment of this Series involves four popular close-up card effects choreographed and reimagined for the stage performer. This is the ultimate guide to packing flat and playing thin…oops, we mean big!
The Chicago Opener
Scott takes Al Leech’s trick from the closeup table to the stage, creating a highly visual stand up piece with two strong magical moments highlighted with comedic bits of business.
Everywhere and Nowhere
Hofzinser’s timeless classic becomes a fun and exciting stage piece in Scott’s hands. This routine features tons laughter and amazement, amidst rapid-fire jaw dropping visuals.
Three spectators simply think of cards and they rise from the deck. The routine concludes with a surprise twist ending where they can keep the cards, the glass, and the indelible memory of this impossible effect.
Three Card Monte
This is Scott’s smooth and effortless handling of the classic Emmerson and West monte effect. He uses and ace, a ten and a queen to tell the story of how he ended up with an ear full of apple cider!
Scott teaches you how to frame your effects for maximum impact and visibility including how to lend focus to what is important not only in your live shows, but in your promotional videos.
Scott delivers thoughts about focusing on your characters arc, and how to think about combining your personality, trick selection, strengths and skills effectively. He lays out a formula to help guide you in the material you choose.
