A card is chosen from the deck, signed by a spectator and then inserted back into the centre of the deck, with the flick of a wrist the card is back on top of the pack! Once more it is placed into the deck and it appears in Roger’s mouth, once more the card disappears and finally appears inside a kiwi fruit which has been in full sight all the time. Close up Magician for any occasion.
One of my favourite places to perform magic in Sussex is as a Magician in Brighton, check out some recent weddings below, one on the beach!
Mind reading effects, five spectators all choose a ball from a black bag one of them is the golden ball, everyone keeps their ball to themselves so nobody knows who has got the golden ball. Through a series of questions and analysis of body language Roger will determine who has the golden ball. A very interesting insight into the world of body language.
A £10 note is borrowed and with a few magic moves is folded up and then unfolded – it has changed into a £20 – it then changes into twenty Euros!
This is just a small selection of the magic Sussex Magician Roger Lapin can perform for you.
