Why do magicians use playing cards? Glad you asked!
Playing cards are the most versatile prop available to a magician. They have been called "the poetry of magic" (Hofzinser) and hold within their 52 unique identities the ability to mesmerize and amaze without limits. Virtually every type of magical effect, from visual illusions to mental and paranormal mysteries, can be presented using this everyday household object. My card magic is improvisational and jazzy in style, backed by over a decade of education in technical sleight-of-hand and misdirection.
Is mentalism real?
Yes and No. Mentalism also sometimes called “mind reading” is a branch of magic that deals with illusions of the mind. The mentalist uses his knowledge of human psychology, suggestion, and devious magic based methods to create startling demonstrations of phenomena such as precognition, telepathy, and mind control. Mentalism, when performed by an expert, is incredibly powerful and feels like more than “just a trick.” But is it? Many modern mentalists claim their feats are accomplished by reading body language or using their sharp mental acuity to deduce and extrapolate information. However, while these skills can be developed over time and are the basis of many mental effects, bold diabolical trickery also plays its role. (don’t tell anyone)
“Harrison is the real deal! He is an amazing entertainer. We asked him to present to our whole company in an online zoom meeting and he amazed us. We had over 60 people on the call and he kept their attention in full. I highly recommend Harrison.”
“Harrison was engaging right from the start. His magic was incredible and he did it all via Zoom. His energy was fast paced and he kept wowing the participants throughout the night. I would hire Harrison again and again. He was certainly the highlight of our virtual event.”
