Sharpo's Close Up Table Magic
Many mystifying miracles of the mind are demonstrated seamlessly along with invisible sleights and deceptions that show just how dangerous a deck of cards can be in the hands of a master card sharp.
Here are just a few of the impossible routines from this time tested and audience acclaimed table act:
The shuffled cards are spread face down on the table. A spectator selects a card and commits it to memory. It is lost into the pack and shuffled some more. With a flick of the wrist the card pops out of the deck onto the table in front of the spectator. The cards are then spread face up and somehow restored to new deck order!
After a card is selected by the volunteer, Sharpo produces a packet of blank cards that visibly become chosen cards right before the eyes of the beholders in Sharpo’s Big Money Prediction routine.
Blank cards are proven to have photographic qualities as they retain images from spectator selections in Sharpo’s superb handling of a Columbini classic.
You have heard of the Three Card Monte. Sharpo takes it further with his own “Full Deck Monte” where ‘the red lady’ along with two indifferent cards are moved around the table and also... the rest of the deck! This confounding routine has several phases that become increasingly more astounding with a kicker ending that is simply impossible to explain.
Sharpo’s Cardiac routine (card - identify, associate, correspond) show ancient laws of magic in action with this introduction to sacred alchemy via playing cards.
In between the card magic Sharpo delights and dazzles the participants with coins, finger rings, and even items from spectator pockets! This act includes several productions, vanishes, transformations, transpositions, mind reading, incredible predictions, and other peeks behind the veil of what we call the material world. When asked - Sharpo will occasionally perform his own take on the centuries old classic: The cups and balls .
Sharpo keeps his sets tight while leaving room for improvisation and adapting to the whims of the crowd. Because he is the life of the party he is often asked to perform for several hours at parties! Sharpo can perform multiple different power packed table acts ready to rock your event along with his theatrical parlor act of magic and mystery and strolling person to person effects.
