Through Being Cool by Nick Diffatte
A collection of close up and stand up material direct from Nick Diffatte’s working repertoire.
“These are all great, original, and unique routines that I know will fit in any magicians repertoire. I’m proud to say I’ve used many of these routines and can testify to the strength and quality of the material.” -Dan Sperry
“&@$# you for having so much good material.” -Farrell Dillon
“Nick Diffatte is the perfect combination of smart, funny, creative and practical. And those four things combine to truly make him a triple threat. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD! (I want to keep all of this material to myself.)” -Thom Peterson
“There is a wealth of very practical and useable material in this collection with truly something for everyone.” -John Carey
“Nick Diffatte is a rare breed; an experienced working pro, a dedicated technician, an inventive tinkerer, and a creator of original, offbeat, entertaining magic routines. The plots he comes up with are always funny and unique, his methods and handlings are meticulous in their attention to detail, and everything he creates, no matter how weird, he actually performs for real human beings. If you enjoy performing fun, baffling, practical, and original material in venues other than your webcam, Nick’s ideas will suit you magnificently.” -Sean Mitchell
“With this DVD Nick is sharing routines that can easily be adapted to any style of performance. Strong, solid and magical workers that I can see go into magicians’ repertoires. I already added one.” -Fritz Alkemade
‘Through Being Cool’ is a collection of close up and stand up material direct from Nick Diffatte’s working repertoire. All of the extremely visual and deceptive material contained on the DVD can be done for real people, in real world working environments. No Youtube magic pipe dreams.
Play Money Revisited
Nick’s best selling bill switch handling completely updated. A Monopoly bill (Or a coupon, ATM receipt, bus pass, etc.) is held at the fingertips of one hand and is visually turned into real US currency. Includes multiples variations and clean ups.
Nest of Office Supplies
Nick’s personal replacement for the LePaul Card to Wallet. The signed card or any small object appears inside of a sealed envelope that is wrapped in tin foil, inside of a small bubble mailer. It all fits in your breast pocket and can be made for around .
Dye Another Day
Nick’s streamlined handling for Billy McComb’s Half Dyed Hank that now only requires 2 silks and one special dye tube. No dye tube switch required. Nick teaches how all the props can be made at home. The perfect stand up routine that fits easily in your coat pocket.
A paper match is ripped out of a book of matches, torn in half, and then is completely restored… but with the match head in the middle. The match can be pulled on by the audience and can even be lit to prove it’s real. Everything can be made at home.
The magician cleanly makes a cup of tea which the spectator holds. A card is mentally thought of from a deck that is riffled through. The card changes places with the tea bag and the card is now on the end of the tea bag string that the spectator has been holding. NO SWITCHES of the tea bag. Many variations using this principle are included.
