Daniel Madison

A modern visual artist and underground illusionist; born from absolute deception, once surviving from intricate short-cons on the streets and in betting rooms across the world.

In April 2000 Daniel was banned from UK casinos on claims that he was using a memory technique commonly known as card counting to cheat at Black Jack, following the ban, Daniel found his way into an underground poker scene where his deceptions would continue.

After 6 months as a card-cheat, the repercussions of an exposed sleight of hand technique landed Daniel on life support in hospital. During his recovery, Daniel discharged himself from hospital and spent a further 6 months in a wheelchair. His life as a poker-cheat had ended.

With the support of his close friend and entertainment agent, Randall Freeman helped to form Daniels skills into a rare form of entertainment, displaying card cheating techniques for guests at dinner parties and restaurants. Daniel was soon advertised as a close-up-magician and began a professional career in the magic industry.

The Advocate: the ultimate playing card index by Daniel MadisonThe best and most practical card index ever created.

The Advocate is by far Daniel's most favorite discovery and deceptive tool and was for many years his best kept secret, and it has been a monster of a reputation maker for him. This is his 4th edition of this book; where the predecessors were written with the magician and the effects in mind, this edition keeps due focus on the device itself for deceptive use. Although 'tricks' have not been removed from this edition they have been simplified and reduced to suggestions as opposed to focal points of the book. Much deserved extra attention...

The Score: playing card marking system by Daniel MadisonThe Score is an ebook that teaches a special playing card marking system inspired by a concept probably as old as playing cards. The system has been re-thought and re-mastered by Daniel Madison with help from sleight of hand junkie Randall Freeman and a retired card cheat who wishes to remain anonymous.

The Score markings system teaches you how to mark any deck of cards that has a white border, such as standard Bicycle Rider backs, Mandolines and Bee Stingers - we'd list all of those decks here but there are far too many to mention!

Primer by Daniel MadisonPrimer is a trick deck that has existed in Daniel Madison's repertoire for almost a decade. At first glance one may judge the deck as a 'beginners prop' but after using it I can say that this is a most powerful tool when performing. It achieves things, which in fairness can be achieved with a normal (modified) deck, but what's amazing about it is that it eliminates the sleights that at some point some of us could do without.

Primer Reader - Card Selection Process
The deck is spread face-down on the surface and a card is freely selected by a spectator as the performer turns away. The performer...

Wrath by Daniel MadisonEffect:

A card is selected...signed...the deck is shuffled and boxed...the box is inspected...a lighter is introduced...a corner of the deck is burned away...and the selected signed card is the only one not burned.

Wrath is a gimmicked deck. You do not need to burn a new or different deck every time you perform. The deck takes approximately 10 minutes to make. The deck is re-usable and has an instant reset. The deck is shown to be 100% legit and so is the box. There are no difficult sleights and no deck switching. The deck can be given away to your spectators afterward. Wrath can be made...

  • The Wheel Change
  • The Swing Change
  • Delusion
For each one you will receive a PDF and a video clip.

The Fan Change
This is what Daniel considers to be a signature color-change and it is one of his favorites. A card is turned face up on top of the deck. The deck is fanned and before the fan closes the face up card has changed to another card.

The fan change is impromptu, it can be performed with any deck of cards and isn't hard to achieve. To stub a misconception...the top card is not being taken away from...
