People Skills is a demonstration in which you predict the decisions a person will make on a crowd of people. Your main participant openly chooses if people will go to the left side of the stage, the right side of the stage, or if they will be sent back to their seats. The performer is in no way involved in the decision making process. When everyone has been sent somewhere by the spectator, you’re able to show a prediction that proves you knew every action they would make!

1. The audience chooses a suit from the deck. Each card in that suit is taken out and given to the spectator who SHUFFLES IT.
2. Then, they start dealing cards from their pile. Each time they deal a card, you’re able to cut the remainder of the deck AND INSTANTLY FIND THE MATE OF THEIR CARD.
3. This goes on, building to an impossible climax where you cause a chosen card to appear face up in the deck.
How easy is it? SO EASY YOUR SPECTATOR CAN DO IT. Seriously, you can even let them cut the deck and find the right card. It’s mind-boggling.
When you want to make a seriously big impression, Suit Cut to Order is the trick for you.

You present both a deck of cards and a prediction, both which YOU WILL NEVER TOUCH in the performance. As a matter of fact, you can be sitting in the audience while the spectator is on stage counting the cards. You ask the spectator to think of a number between 1-52. Once a number has been chosen, you instruct the spectator to pick up the deck, and deal down to that number. You then instruct her to lift up the prediction which has been on the table the entire time. THE CARD AND PREDICTION MATCH…. EVERY TIME!

Show the spectator your business card with a symbol drawn on it. She can see the drawing. Then hypnotize her. Suddenly, she will be unable to see what`s drawn on the card!
Now show the card around. Everyone else in the room can see the drawing. Unhypnotize her. Suddenly, the drawing visibly appears on the card, right in front of her eyes. All this is done in real time without switching the card!

“There are these rare moments in magic where I know I’m holding the impossible and I’m afraid to look.
If I open this and it is what I think it is, everything I know about my reality is broken.
Thank you Nathaniel Segal for giving me that gift. It’s a moment I will remember forever.” – Brent Braun

IT IS A DEMONSTRATION OF THE POWER OF SUBCONSCIOUS INFLUENCE.
At least, that’s how it SEEMS…
This is Quarterly Report, a new routine by Rick Lax. It isn’t meant to FOOL spectators; it’s meant to leave them thinking you have the POWER to CONTROL THEIR ACTIONS…with your WORDS.
Like a Jedi.
It doesn’t end with “Ta-da!”; it ends with a scientific explanation of HOW you did WHAT you did.
Now, as it happens, this “scientific explanation” is a COMPLETE LIE…but your spectators will believe it EVERY TIME. It’s THAT convincing.

Laurent Mikelfield has created a card trick with an amazing visual that is not only easy to perform but gets great eye popping reactions!
With Smiley you have a card selected and signed by your spectator, this is placed into the middle of the deck, slightly out-jogged. The performer draws a smiley face on the top card of the deck and displays it to the spectator. In one swift and visual moment WITH NO COVER the selection is pulled from the deck and the smiley face instantly JUMPS ONTO the signed selection! It really is a visual instantaneous transposition that has to be seen to be believed, so if you haven’t watched the video demo, WATCH IT NOW!
