Jumbo Card on Seat (Improved) by Collectors’ Workshop, Chuck Fayne

(c. 1995,2009) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

NEW remote control version! The performer never goes near the spectator’s chair. A wonderful improvement that was long in coming but worth the wait.

With considerable regret on the part of Chuck Fayne and Rich Bloch, both of whom use this fabulous bit of business in every show they can, CW releases this to the public. Here’s the outline:

Effect: Performer brings two folding chairs on stage. Seating the spectator in one and himself in the other chair, the performer offers to turn the magic-doing over to the spectator:

“YOU BE THE MAGICIAN”, he tells the spectator, “and repeat what I say. I’ll do as you instruct.”
Now, cued by loud stage whispers from the performer, the dialogue is as follows:
(Performer): “Please look through the cards and select one.”
(Spectator):’Please look through the cards and select one.’
Performer does so.
(Spectator): ‘Please show your card to the audience’,(repeating the stage whispers of the performer).
Performer waits impatiently for spectator to turn away and finally shows card to audience.
(Spectator): ‘Now, sign your name across the face of the card and replace it in the deck.’ (Performer does so).
(Spectator): ‘Your card has now vanished from the deck.’ (Performer looks through the deck and indeed the card has vanished; all cards are shown to the audience, etc.).
(Performer): “Believe it or not, you’re sitting on it.” (Spectator repeats the performer’s words).
(Performer): “No, YOU’RE sitting on it.”
(Spectator): ‘No, YOU’RE sitting on it.’
(Performer): “No. YOU’RE sitting on it, take a look,” and gestures for the spectator to stand up and look under his/her seat.
Sure enough, the performer’s signed jumbo card is resting on the chair, underneath the spectator!

This effect has already become a classic in this modern age. Top performers around the world owe much to Chuck Fayne (and Karrell Fox, for the basic concept) for this wonderful and entertaining bit of mayhem. The comedy and Magic value far exceed the price of the effect. Everyone wants a killer effect in their routine…CW offers you one of the best!

Wonderfully electronic-mechanical in nature. No forcing, no sleights so you can devote your precious time to entertaining, which is what this is all about!

    George has done it again! Pure Magical Perfection!

    George Robinson may not be the fastest guy in the South, but when he does deliver boy is it exciting! This new and vastly improved version of the classic Collector’s Workshop item is a case in point. I have always liked the effect, but was not too happy with the old version. Like many items from the Original CW – it was a great idea, but not always built as practical and fool proof as is required in real performances. When you buy these higher end items you need them to work every time, otherwise there are absolutely useless.

    George has rebuilt the whole thing from scratch and not only is the mechanism effectively invisible it is now triggered using remote control. It works flawlessly and the mechanism is silent. It is a beauty to behold. The reset is a snap and accessing the mechanism is easy too.

    Both chairs look almost identical and unless you knew what you were looking for you’d be hard pressed to see a difference between the chairs.

    This is truly an effect where you can concentrate all your efforts on the presentation, because the high-end electronics and superior design does all the rest for you.

    I for one don’t mind waiting for magic this beautiful and amazing – keep them coming Georgie, and take as long as you need.

    Most highly recommended for Performers everywhere!
