Bruce Cervon had been a full time professional magician since 1965. He won many awards including the Magic Castle Close-up Magician Of The Year, in fact he won it more than once. This recording features some of the commercial card magic of Bruce Cervon.
Perhaps his most famous effect is "Dirty Deal". Here, for the first time, is the opportunity to learn Bruce's own handling. Bruce Cervon is also well known for his interest in topological card magic and he describes a very clean handling for "Cardwarp" using one card and a dollar bill. It's an excellent routine in which a playing card reverses as it is pushed through a paper tube formed by the bill. The bill is opened to show the card after each reversal and the spectator may even do the trick himself. Easy to do and well thought out.
Also included is "Zauberkünste Triumph" a simple version of a Hofzinser effect. "The Viet Nam Card Trick" was routined by Bruce Cervon and Dai Vernon. No sleights, totally impromptu and even fools magicians. "Do You Believe in Intuition" is a great routine for formal close-up shows. Finally, "Cervon's Roll Over Aces" is a truly impressive routine of cardmanship.
This recording was originally issued as a two volume tape set. It has been digitally remastered.
