Effect: John Bannon is one of the most popular creators of close-up magic. His routines are regularly used by professional and hobbyist magicians. If you don’t have a John Bannon routine in your repertoire you are missing out on professional caliber magic that is practical, commercial and fun to perform.

Impossibilia:
On this DVD John Bannon teaches the best routines from his best selling book Impossibilia: The Close-Up Magic Of John Bannon. The routines taught on this program are currently being used by many of the leading close-up magicians. These are the routines that gave John a worldwide reputation. You will immediately add many of them to your working repertoire.

Routines performed and explained:

  • Shriek Of The Mutilated: A visual flash restoration of a torn piece of cigarette paper.
  • Play it Straight (Triumph): Bannon’s outstanding no-sleight triumph routine where all the cards of the selected card’s suit remain face up after three fair shuffles.
  • Vacuum Packed: A quarter magically penetrates a small sealed glass bottle and is visually removed through its tiny opening.
  • Directed Verdict: A spectator cuts the deck into four packets. The spectator turns the top card of each and shows them to be aces.
  • Revolutionary Penetration: A Chinese coin is threaded and tied on a shoelace. The lace and coin are placed into a spectator’s fist and impossibly separate.
  • Return of the Magnificent Seven: Seven duplicate cards are shown and a card is selected. Each and every one of the duplicates now changes into the selected card. Everything is examinable.

  • Strangers’ Gallery,
  • One is the Onliest,

Smoke and Mirrors:
After the tremendous success of John Bannon’s Impossibilia video and his best selling book Smoke & Mirrors John once again releases some amazing creations. The focus of this program is card magic
that is direct, entertaining and never fails to fool. You will love the many easy-to-perform routines with novel premises and high impact.

Routines performed and explained:

  • Tattoo You: An easy routine where an initialed selected card matches a prediction. The initials are visually transferred to the prediction and it is given as a souvenir.
  • Masquerade: A Joker assembly where the jokers vanish from individual packets and appear in a leader packet. As a kicker ending the jokers change into four aces. 
  • Lessons Are Extra: A gambling demonstration where you apparently teach the techniques of card cheaters and continually deal winning poker hands to yourself.
  • Outer Limits: A spectator cuts a small packet of cards and thinks of one of them. You immediately tell them what they are thinking of.
  • Sheep To The Slaughter: A card cheating demonstration where the four aces are obviously dealt to yourself but when the hand is turned over it is the Royal Flush.
  • Trick Shot Production: A memorable routine that starts out with a selected card and ends with a surprise production.

Plus performances and explanations to:

  • Detour De Force,
  • Do The ‘Twixt,
  • New Jack City,
