Professional Magician and Hypnotist

Devin Knight is regarded as one of magic's most prolific inventors. He is also a highly sought after lecturer for both magicians and mentalists. Most of his effects are run-away best sellers and have received rave reviews. Devin was a protege of the late Al Mann and currently works as a full-time magician and mentalist. Devin strives to create effects that not only fool magicians, but at the same time are easy to do. The majority of his effects rely more on clever ideas, rather than difficult sleights. This puts most of his effects within the skill range of most magicians.

Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick

Devin Knight

Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick by Devin KnightA forgotten trick from the past that was first invented by Howard Thurston and used in his big show. The effect is that the magician invites up a boy from the audience and without touching the boy, he gestures toward the boy and the boy's hair stands on its end running from the front to back the back of his head, like a magical ripple. The hair falls down back to normal.

The magician raises his hand and the boy's hair once again stands on its end to the amazement of the audience. The magician quickly drops his hand and the boy's hair once again falls down, being normal again. The boy can then be used in...

Silent Two-Person Codes Revealed

W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight

Silent Two-Person Codes Revealed by W. G. Magnuson & Devin KnightImagine being able to secretly transmit information to your assistant in complete silence and without having to learn a lot of code words. Imagine you could do this without any electronics and very little practice.

Ordinary spoken (verbal) codes are more or less known to modern audiences, but the methods herein described defies detection, even if the method should be known to the party who sees it. Normally, to do this today requires secret electronic equipment costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars capable of sending secret impulses to your assistant. Such is not the case with these...

Zenith Spirit Manifestation

W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight

Zenith Spirit Manifestation by W. G. Magnuson & Devin KnightThis was designed to fool both skeptics and magicians. This is one of the most stunning mediumistic stunts ever devised. It was developed and used by the old school mediums. It was so unbelievable; it fooled reporters, skeptics and magicians. A medium who could be searched and placed into a darkened room could cause a spirit to materialize in full view, without the aid of any secret assistants. This could be done in anyone's home.

The amazing thing was that this was accomplished without luminous cardboard props, luminous cheesecloths, luminous paint or other props sold by Nelson Enterprises....

Incredible 3-Way Match

Devin Knight

Incredible 3-Way Match by Devin KnightEFFECT: The performer shows five playing cards that are cut in half width-wise, making a total of ten half cards. He shows that there is a matching card half within the small packet of cards. The performer invites two spectators to help. We’ll refer to as Spectator A and Spectator B. He gives the packet to Spectator A and has him shuffle the cards thoroughly so no one knows the order of the cards.

The performer turns his back and says to Spectator A, “While my back is turned, please deal to the other person; face down, as many or as few cards as you wish. What cards you get is unimportant....

Del-Ardo's Private Sealed Envelope Reading Method

W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight

Del-Ardo's Private Sealed Envelope Reading Method by W. G. Magnuson & Devin KnightDel-Ardo was a professional medium of the old school. He developed many ways to read messages in a sealed envelope, but this was his favorite method and was the one he used most. This is also the same method that was used by psychic, Jason Michaels, during his career, with a few of his improvements. Devin Knight is still using this improved method to this day.

This method is also being used by phony mediums today who are working the spiritualist churches and camps because it is almost 100% foolproof and there is almost no chance of getting caught cheating. The method is that good.

Easy Ways To Manifest Spirit Raps

Devin Knight

Easy Ways To Manifest Spirit Raps by Devin KnightTwo rare and long forgotten secrets are revealed again. You do not have to be a medium to produce spirit raps. Devin Knight has compiled two of the easiest ways to produce spirit raps ever devised. If you do any type of question and answer act, then the spirits can rap out the answers. This is unnerving to those watching. Imagine walking into any place there is a table. You sit at the table and have two people on both sides hold your hands or wrists so you can't use them. They can also put their shoes on your shoes so you can't use your feet. Under these conditions you manifest spooky raps that...

Improved Blindsight

Improved Blindsight by Devin Knight
"I was blindsided by this new edition and method. I love doing it and so will you. I use it now as a traveling piece of real mentalism. It is real thinking to the nth degree." - Marc Salem
The original Blindsight has been one of the bestselling tricks in magic, having sold over 5000 copies. Here is a new improved version. The effect is the same, but the method has been improved.

Performer patters that Blindsight is the apparent ability to see colors and shapes which cannot be seen. You offer a simple experiment. You introduce 4 ungimmicked colored cards: Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow. These in...

Psychic Envelope Divination

Devin Knight

Psychic Envelope Divination by Devin KnightHere is an act that I sincerely concede as being the best all-around modus operandi ever offered to the profession. The strong point is that this effect is done in real time. The original effect was sold in the Sphinx for $50.00 back in the 40s. By today's standards it would be almost $800.00. It was later improved by psychic Jason Michaels and used during his career. The effect is as follows: The performer passes out small cards on which spectators are requested to write their questions and sign their full name. This completed, cards are collected by performer, placed in small envelopes and sealed. ...

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig

Devin Knight

How To Not Get Arrested At A Gig by Devin KnightDid you know you could be doing things at your gigs that could get you arrested or lead to hefty fines? I know in the past I was guilty of doing some of these things which led me to write this e-book. In my opinion this is the definitive work on avoiding getting busted at a gig.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first e-book written entirely on this subject. It was written to protect entertainers and should be considered a must read for all performers. It's a shame that I have to write this PDF, but unfortunately there are things that entertainers could be doing at their shows that...

The Ultimate Psychic Secret

The Ultimate Psychic Secret by Devin Knight
"I do a lot of Q&A act in my shows and I have different ways to get people info. This for sure is another tool I will have at my disposal when I can. Thanks Devin for releasing this." - Luca Volpe

"This is a shocking book. I will never use it, but every mentalist should own it to know what is going on. It is a valuable reference, but do not use it. Like a modern-day nightmare alley, it exposes the dark underbelly of the art. It should be in your library, but much feels immoral, and you must be hip to it. Treasure it, like a radioactive isotope, but keep your distance." - Marc Salem

How To Do The Electric Chairs

Devin Knight

How To Do The Electric Chairs by Devin KnightThis is probably one of the most ancient of all comedy effects, yet strong enough and entertaining enough to be part of the performance of many leading entertainers. The late mentalist Maurice Fogel made a big hit with this in his show.

The basic effect is that five to six spectators are invited to the front and sit in chairs. In a few moments, they jump up and scream, saying that their chair shocked them. The chairs are examined and found to be ordinary; the moment they sit down, they jump up again, saying they were shocked again. This is repeated as often as the performer wishes. The performer...

Easy Wallet Steal

Devin Knight

Easy Wallet Steal by Devin KnightDo you want to get yourself talked about, fool your audiences, and get a nice round of applause at the finish? If so, try this at your next show.

A man comes up to help you with a trick, as he starts to go back to his seat you hand him his wallet much to the delight of the audience.

Some magicians needlessly worry, that if they do the wallet steal bit, that audiences will not trust them or think they may be a thief. This is nonsense. Most people believe that a magician can easily lift a wallet or remove a watch. This has happened to me many times, and I'm sure it has happened to you too....

Controlled Actions

Controlled Actions by Devin KnightEffect: The magician says he will attempt to control a spectator's actions. The magician displays three envelopes numbered 1, 2, and 3 saying these are predictions. A participant selects three cards from a regular deck. The performer shows the participant three blank envelopes and asks for a number from 1 to 3.

The magician proceeds to write that number on the envelope and the participant takes one of his selections (no force) and the magician slides it into the envelope with the number the spectator named. This process is repeated with the other two envelopes and cards. The performer then...

The Red Hot Coin Revealed

Devin Knight

The Red Hot Coin Revealed by Devin Knight
"This is perhaps, the greatest 'come on', or 'bally stunt' the world has ever known." - Floyd Thayer
This is a sadly forgotten effect that was a big hit back in vaudeville, but overlooked by today's magicians. It has been used by Thurston, Blackstone Sr., U. F. Grant, Tommy Windsor and other great magicians. This is one of the funniest routines in magic and you don't have to be a comedian or comedy performer to pull it off. It always results in hilarious laughter.

The premise is simple; the performer invites a boy up and shows him a half-dollar. The performer says, "This is the one and only RED HOT COIN. After years...

Foolzum Newspaper Tear Revisited

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Foolzum Newspaper Tear Revisited by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantA full size sheet of newspaper is handed for examination; both the magician and a spectator sign their names on the front of the newspaper. Without adding anything, the newspaper is openly and deliberately torn-up with the audience plainly seeing the signatures being torn.

After the newspaper is torn into small pieces, the magician blows on the pieces. The rough edges of the paper are seen to get smooth, and upon opening the newspaper out, it is restored. But wait, only half the paper is there. The other half falls to the floor.

The audience thinks they are the torn pieces. The packet...

No Way!

Devin Knight

No Way! by Devin KnightThis is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"

Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts...

Magician, Ghost and Girl Illusion

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Magician, Ghost and Girl Illusion by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantNOTICE: This is an expanded version of an illusion described in Grant's Lost Illusion Files. It gives you far more information.

Although this illusion can be done year-round, this makes a great illusion for spook shows or Halloween shows. For those affairs, it is the perfect illusion and it would be hard to find an illusion more suited for those occasions.

EFFECT: The magician shows a three-fold screen with a black interior. He forms the screen into a three-sided cabinet with opening at the front. The performer says that he is going spook hunting. As the saying goes, it takes a thief to catch a thief.
