JEFF BLUM'S STAND UP
Blum is a professional magician who specializes in stand-up magic and
mentalism that can be presented up close as well as in the largest
auditoriums. On this DVD you get to see him perform his favorite creations
in front of a live house party and then explain everything in great detail.
Along the way he gives many real world tips and strategies explaining how he
earns his full time living using stand up magic and mentalism.
Routines performed and explained:
In: A deck is visibly sucked into a balloon and is visibly shuffled
while inside the inflated balloon. The first signed selection is then
plucked out of the deck. Amazingly the second signed selection appears
folded inside your shoe.
Vision: A spectator thinks of any television show and you read their

for performing a center tear.
To Bagel: A spectator is given a paper bag for safekeeping. A signed
one-dollar bill is transformed into a ten-dollar bill. The ten-dollar bill
changes into a large $100 silk. The spectator then opens the bag to find
some dough -- actually a bagel. Inside the bagel is his signed one-dollar
Company: Three predictions are made and three cards are selected under
increasingly more difficult conditions. Of course all the predictions match
the selected cards.
In Box: A signed card disappears from the deck while in the spectator's
hands. The card is then found inside a sealed and stapled envelope, which
was inside a rolled up rubber banded pair of socks, which were inside the
smallest of three nested boxes.
Reality: An envelope with a description of a dream you had is given to a
spectator to hold. Then three random events occur... a card is chosen, a
matchbook is selected from a bag full of them, a word is chosen from a
paperback novel. When the envelope is opened the dream matches all three
Surprise: Using body language as a premise you guess the spectator's
freely chosen card and their birth date.
