El3don by Mark Elsdon
Mark Elsdon is a diabolical inventor of great magic, and has consulted for all of the big names in our industry. Here, he has put together three of his very favorite, original effects into one bundle. Every single one is easy to perform and will elicit GASPS from the audience. The best news? Each one can be performed within minutes of watching.
Strange Oblique: This is Mark's handling of the "Which hand" plot. Here, you designate one participant as "the liar" and all the others as truth-tellers. By asking a series of nonsensical, absurd, hilarious questions--like "Would you go on a cycling holiday with her?" or "Would you eat a free taco if a stranger gave it to you?" you're able to perfectly discern who is the liar amongst the audience. No electronics or stooges or pre-show or gaffs are used. It's all encompassed in the delightful presentation.
Limelight: This is Mark's very favorite effect that he's ever created. You make any participant the hero, by allowing HER to reveal chosen and thought-of cards from a shuffled deck. SHE becomes the magician and is able to predict any card at any number, and she does so across three phases, each more impossible than the last.
NYC Opener: A lovely way to open any performance. A card cleanly vanishes from the deck and appears in the card box, all under test conditions.
Includes gimmicks and almost two hours of video instruction.
