every type magic show possible. He is one of the very few magicians who are
equally as skilled in both stage and close-up magic. His routines are all
fast paced, humorous and intrinsically magical. This video features Martin
performing two different close-up magic shows in front of a live audience.

Routines performed and explained:
The Amazing Dancing Girl: A fast paced Three Card Monte type routine
where the money card is all over the place, but never where you expect it.
Shuffle: Martin presents his handling to one of the best-selling card
routines of all time. It is also the one he invented and is best known for.
Odd Card: An impossible Monte routine with jumbo cards where the money
card vanishes and a joker is found in its place.
Deck: A funny routine where a selected card is found through the
markings it develops on it's back.
Stampede Second: A second dealing demonstration where a postage stamp is
placed on the top card of the deck and the cards beneath it are visually
dealt off the deck. When you stop the stamp is found permanently adhered to
a previously selected card.
Propagation: A routine using three dice and a dice cup where the dice
vanish, appear, shrink, change color, expand and finally multiply to fill
the table with dice.
Collins' Aces: The four aces vanish from four different packets of
cards. The cards are gathered and the aces are found by spelling to them.
of Arrival: Two cards are selected and signed. Ten cards are wrapped in
a handkerchief and held by a spectator. The two selections vanish from the
deck and appear inside the handkerchief.
Computer Cards: A selected card is lost in the deck. Using some computer
cards and the spectator's responses the selected card is found even though
the spectator is allowed to lie.
Test: A cute packet trick with rabbits that fall in love and multiply.
Money: A borrowed penny and a silver dollar change places, shrink and
expand to many times their original size.
Miniature Card Rise: Two cards are selected and lost in a miniature
deck. The deck is placed under a drinking glass and the two selections
visually rise out of the deck. Everything is examinable.

Glimpse: A clever method of glimpsing a peeked at card while it is still
in the center of the deck.
