Magician of Naples’ Most Unusual 4 Card Monte
As I do more and more comedy magic, the fascination is always there by clients for the old school, straight slight of hand style of magic. I was contacted by a corporation about participating in a Las Vegas magic night here in Naples. They wanted the night to feature my close-up table side magic as well as tables with dealers where they can play everything from Texas Hold ‘Em to Blackjack. It’s something that I do quite often, although for obvious reasons I don’t deal the cards myself. 🙂
However, they wanted a magic effect that brought together the night of chance mixing with the night of magic. The video below is the one that I made and will be playing throughout the convention to get them ready for the night.
It’s based on the game of three card monte. For you that do not know, three card monte is commonly played in big cities such as New York and is also called “Find the Queen.” More money has been lost at this game than all the horse races combined. The video does a great job showing you that while you can try as much as you can to follow the card, you should never throw your money down because the odds are always on the house.
Take a look at the video for yourself and if you see me at an event, either here in Naples, Fort Myers, or across Florida, ask to see it in person. No need for wagering though, we will chalk this one up to educational. 🙂
