Routines Performed & Explained:
►Quarter On The Head: A quick introductory gag where you stick a quarter to your forehead. When you offer the coin to the spectator to try, they see that it has a spike attached.
►Fan-See Card: A quick and visual opening where a card is selected and lost in the deck. The deck is spread into a double fan. The top layer of the fan is removed, leaving the selected card the only one showing.
►Ring & Rope: A multiphase routine where a borrowed finger ring is repeatedly treaded on a rope but manages to escape. The ring finally vanishes to appear on a severed finger in a box. As a finale you demonstrate how the rope can penetrate your finger.
►A.P.E: A selected card is lost in the deck and wrapped by a handkerchief. When the handkerchief is shaken the selected card slips out, apparently penetrating through the handkerchief.
►Card Rise: A selected card is lost in the deck and a handkerchief is draped over it. All of a sudden something starts rising under the handkerchief and takes it up in the air. Under the handkerchief is the selected card.
►Re-Rabbits: Rich teaches his routine for the walk-around classic; Multiplying Sponge Rabbits.
►Two Cards To Pocket: Two cards are selected and lost in the deck. They then appear in two different pockets and are returned to the deck. Amazingly you now reach into the pockets and once again produce the cards.
►Gypsy Tie: You pull a string from a spectator’s tie and use it for a torn and restored thread. At the end you roll the thread into a ball and put it back into the tie.
►Card In Lemon: A selected card is lost in the deck and covered with a handkerchief. When the handkerchief is whisked away you are seen holding a lemon. The lemon is sliced in half and the selected card is found inside.
►Quick Coin Trick: Three quick coin vanishes and appearances.
