Tommy Wonder was an incredible performer, well-known for his smooth sleight-of-hand, masterful misdirection, and devious devices. And now, a modern master of magical creativity shares his favorite Tommy Wonder creations with you as Dan Harlan presents “The Best of the Books of Wonder.” Lesson 3 is a look inside what made Tommy Wonder’s misdirection so effective. Join Dan Harlan as he explores The Magic Ranch.
When it comes to misdirection, Tommy Wonder was a master, and this humorous routine stands as a perfect example. What begins as a simple (yet strong) card trick, soon turns surprisingly off-beat as a plastic egg suddenly appears on the table next to the spectator and far away from the performer. It’s a truly jaw-dropping moment perfectly orchestrated to amaze and amuse! Not only does the egg seem to appear on its own, it also contains the spectator’s chosen card, and the rest of the deck changes to all Ace of Spades! This trick is strong, and memorable, enough to stand on its own, and you’ll love the misdirection technique.
