Elsdon has the Last Laugh!

"He who laughs last, laughs longest."

Last Laugh is my unique take on the 'stranger card' plot:

Two decks of cards are introduced, both with different backs. One of the decks is removed from its box, shown to be 100% regular and shuffled. A participant now selects a card from the deck and sight unseen places it into his pocket.

You now state you are going to attempt to cut to the matching card but from the other deck. Your audience will be impressed by your skill when you accurately practice-cut to both the jokers. 

What happens next is where the madness begins: You start cutting to and removing joker after joker after joker from the deck. Everyone will think they've been had and that the whole thing is nothing more than a wind up! They will assume that it's a complete deck of jokers and then just when the let their guard down you hit them hard!

Yes every card in the pack is a joker. Well almost - every card except one. There are 51 face-up jokers and one single card left face down on the table. 

For the first time your participant removes and shows his card. You could now cut the tension with a knife. You have them reach over and take a look at the card on the table... it's a perfect match!

Your spectators may have had a giggle throughout the routine but you certainly had the Last Laugh ;-)

Last Laugh is easy to do and comes complete with a special deck and a registration code that gives you instant access to a full training video to get you started right away!

The price is £22.
