Monte Gras (Harry Anderson-Autographed)
- Difficulty Rating: INTERMEDIATE
- Category: STAND-UP MAGIC
- Product Type: MAGIC TRICK
This is one of Harry Anderson’s many Monte themed routines. It is based on Bill Elliott’s 3 Card Monkey Business (also known as Color Monte) but re-imagined for stage.
The effect as described in the instructions: Three jumbo cards are displayed, two black fours and one red ace, and the monte is played, building to a startling climax, wherin one card is transformed into a brilliantly colorful Joker. All the cards may be examined, or for that matter, given away.
From the introduction by Harry Anderson: “Every other time a magical idea pops into my head, it’s a monte. I’ve got a fixation with the thing, but that’s okay, I’m in good company. Erdnase, Vernon, Scarne and the rest of the best agree that when it comes to sure-fire whiz-bang entertainment, it’s hard to beat the three card game. My experience with it certainly proves that. Over the years I’ve developed a truckload of variations, even marketed a few. My stage act has included the trick in some form forever, and it’s been in the effort to refine my personal routine that Monte Gras came into its own.”
Each set comes complete with three full-color large (8.25 x 12.5 inch) playing cards, 13-pages of illustrated instructions that are signed (by Harry Anderson, Elizabeth Anderson and Dash Anderson), numbered and dated. Comes in its own hand-made carrying case.
