Sharpo's 3 Card Monte - full deck monte
A few years ago - maybe 2013 or so, I stumbled upon a move with ordinary cards that afforded me the opportunity to create a fun twist on the classic routine. I called it the Laughing Queen. 3 cards. It is a great little number that makes the cards appear to turn over by themselves one by one with a fun surprise kicker ending. I did that for several years and then in 2020 I came across a channel on youtube by a great magician named “Spidey” who did a routine that blew me away. I reverse engineered the effect and adapted it into what I call the Full Deck Monte. From my full deck monte routine I go into what’s now called the “Drama Queen” (evolved from my earlier “Laughing Queen”. It was super duper to my spectators but I still wasn’t satisfied. I happened to catch a video on facebook by acclaimed magician Joe Monti (Who incidentally auditioned for the Wings role with me back in 1995) - He did a routine called “All Backs” so I again reverse engineered the effect and incorporated it into my routine.
So this is a several phase piece of magic and I think it is quite good now. Here is the video so you can follow the red lady along with me.
