Trevor Lewis' ESOLC “that’s CLOSE UP”

Trevor Lewis ESOLC “that’s CLOSE UP” - Edited by Philip Willmarth

A great little book of Close up magic with Cards, Coins, Benson Bowl, Tamariz Rabbits, Sponges, and more. 

We Highly Recommend this book for all close-up performers.

Contents:
Chapter One: Focus on Cards

  • It’s In the Bag: Card is selected and returned. The deck is wrapped in a plastic food bag. The selected card penetrates the bag.
  • Trevor’s Technique: Double Riffle Control: 2 card control
  • Card Shark Two: Card is selected and returned. The card case represents a shark and runs toward the helpless swimmer deck. The deck is riffled and the selected card pops out, well, half the card pops out, in a jagged piece. The other half is found in the shark (card case)
  • The Mine Detector: selected card found by a mine detector (made from wood and bang wand). When card is turned over, it back now has magician’s name and phone number (“mine” in more ways than one!)
  • Reflections: A card is peeked by a spectator and revealed. Shows how to make a special peek deck that can be shuffled.
  • Coin Selector: coin vanishes and locates the selected card
  • Monte Plus: nice in the hand's Monte using standard cards and bent corner ruse
  • Monte Plus Twist: As above, but the key card is held horizontal (how can you miss?)
  • Monte Plus Elmsley: can use as an intro to others
  • Trevor’s Technique: A Zarrow Zwindle. Poker hand idea
  • Chapter Two: Double Focus on Cards
  • Add On Plus: Alternative to Braue Add On move
  • Le Carte Lewis: Three cards are peeked. The magician removes three cards and fans them to each spectator, each denying their card is there. Suddenly the selections appear!
  • Trevor’s Swivel Force Swindle: a force
  • Three Cards Across: Two spectators are each given 10 cards. Three cards travel from one to the other
  • The Five Card Mental Trick: variation of Dai Vernon’s 5 Card Mental Force
  • The Trevor Lewis Second Deal: In 4 Lessons
  • Fake Middle Deal: simulation of the middle deal using seconds
  • Spectator Finds a Card: three approaches to have a second spectator find the first spectator’s selection

Chapter Three:

  • The Para-Die Prediction: Card with pictures of 2 dice are shown, each adding up to a different total. The spectator selects one, and it matches a prediction.
  • The Perfect Match! Two dice are shaken in a large matchbox. The end total is predicted.
  • May I have the Envelope Please? Envelope utility
  • Borrowed Bill Burning Bright: application of envelope utility

Trevor's Benson Bowl Routine: with a bowl, 4 sponges, and toy plastic dinner roll. Three sponge balls appear beneath the bowl. The balls travel from hand to bowl, and eventually, the roll is discovered.

Chapter Four: Focus on Coins

  • Trevor’s Coins In Tumbler: Four coins to cup routine. No gimmicks.
  • Coins Through the What Else: (Table!). No gimmicks
  • Me-Too Matrix: sympathetic coins/four-coin assembly. No gimmicks.
  • Hole Card: After several comedic false starts, a coin is pushed through a too-small hole in a card

Chapter Five: Focus on Comedy

  • Coincidence: strips of paper are torn and eliminated until only one remains. It matches the number of cigarettes in a jar.
  • The Blazing Match Box (book): gimmick to light matches
  • The Matchless Prediction: Book of matches is shown with some already burnt. Two cards are selected. The 7 card selected matches the 7 burnt heads! The 8…doesn’t match anything. Suddenly the book of matches catches on fire, the fifteen matches matching the 7+8 card combo.
  • The Fetsch Force: use for the above trick.
  • A Little Light Humor: match gag
  • Watch! Coin tossed hand to hand turns into a watch
  • Blow Die: Die is “blown” up

The Razor Blade Trick: Stack of blades string themselves. Lots of squeemish comedy!

  • Broken and Restored Spectacles: borrowed
  • The Sharpshooter: a hole is shot in a die at the selected number
  • A Punny Puzzle: crossword gag

Chapter Six: Focus on Dealer Effects

  • Flog – A Sponge Ball Routine: A full sponge ball routine based on golf with comedy patter. Splitting a ball, in the spectator’s hand, and a “FORE (4)” finish
  • Die and Domino Divination: Dominoes used to match a die selection (commercial Die Divination trick)
  • Tamariz Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits: comedy bit using the Apple cards
  • The Brema Nut: Good nut off string routine using a spring-close ring box.
  • Commercial Chop Cup routine: A quick, straightforward non-insulting routine with double end load.
  • Tip from Trevor: restaurant/hotel tip
