Magician's Insurance Policy
MAGICIAN'S INSURANCE POLICY MAGIC TRICK
This is a new design and larger model of an item we have sold for several years. It is one of the most appealing methods for revealing a selected card, or three cards selected by members of the audience.
Effect : Three spectators select 3 cards. Performer asks them to remember and retain the cards, as he will attempt to find them.
After failing to find the selected cards (by wrongly naming them or by cutting the deck at random, and naming a "matching card") he removes an 'Insurance Policy' from his pocket.
He explains that he is not worried because he is insured for just such an eventuality by his Insurance Company. "This policy will refund your ticket money or pay my fees, if I can't locate your selected cards !", he tells the spectators and proceeds to read out some of the Terms And Conditions of the policy. These are gag lines that are sure to draw a chuckle, like
"Special "Sleight-of-Mouth" Clause : This allows the magician to talk his way out of any situation, provided he's bigger than the spectator.
This policy can be canceled in accordance with the whims of the Insurance Company.
The Magician is entitled to a second and third chance to find the chosen card providing the spectator weighs less than 400 pounds and looks peaceful."
As he comes to the last line, he opens the policy and discloses the first spectator's selected card printed on it. (Jumbo Size). Opening the policy one more fold, he discloses the second spectator's selected card printed on it. (Super Jumbo Size). Finally opening the last fold of the policy, he discloses the third spectator's selected card printed on it. (in a super Giant Size).
You can also perform this with a single spectator. A spectator selects a card, and after failing to find the selected card, performer opens his 'Insurance Policy' and discloses a printed card.. "Was this your card ? No ? Was it a different one?" Opening the policy one more fold, he discloses an even larger card'. "Was it this card ? No ! Was it a bigger card ? Oh! What's this ? Was this your card ? It was....!" The magician opens the last fold of the policy to disclose a very large replica of the selected card !'
The folded policy measures just 3.5" x 8.5" and will fit in your shirt pocket. As you unfold it, it grows, and grows, till you have the Super size card on a sheet 16.5" x 20.5" - large enough for a large stage. A prop which you can carry in your pocket and use any time and any place. The complete instructions and routines are printed as the "fine print" on the policy. As value for money, this one is an exceptionally good and affordable buy.
