your strongest impromptu card tricks! ! Do like a top 5 list.
I'm a cardist but I do have 1 favortie trick to perform anytime. It's C3 by Paul Wilson
The 5 that i'm using most by random order :
My own version of Ultimate Transpo.
My own version of ACR.
Card to Pocket/Phone or something like that.
Impossible - Larry Jennings
Triumph - Dai Vernon
Amazing Prediction - Harry Loraine (Though it does require a slight set up but can be done quickly without suspicion)
That's it - Eddie Fechter
21 Card Trick - Bill Malone's 3 stage effect in Malone does Marlo Vol. 3
Almost all my card tricks are impromptu, in my opinion putting the work in beforehand makes your job easier when it's showtime. I'm a full time pro, and that's always worked for me.
Calen Morelli - Clench
While I'm not able to do it as of yet, but I think Raise Rise is amazing!
But for the time being, I always have a deck on hand to do Joel Paschall's 'Ace Cut'
ACM: I never knew it could hit so hard until I showed it to real laymen! Also great heckler fooler.
Two Card Monte: Very good, my signature trick.
Chicago Opener: Also hits quite hard, especially if you ask the spectator to hold the different backed card. I usually burn the back instead of using a blue/red backed, it the guy is a smoker it will be more fun.
Colour Changes, in the hand changes: Hits hard. Depends on do I want to go visual or do I want the trick to blow their minds.
Sometimes I'll prepare it right under the spectator's noses.
Doc Daley's Last Trick: Awesome. Sometimes I'll even do Greg Wilson's weighted aces.
Search and Destroy (Aaron Fisher): Usually I'll start with a quick sandwich routine first.
Gemini Twins (Bill Malone and Gregory Wilson): Depends on my mood; if I want to bet I'll use Greg's, if I want to tell a story I'll use Bill's.
Three Card Monte: Great for shutting up hecklers and suckers.
Sorry I meant ACR
