Magic Lessons #37 – Bigger Smaller Magic Trick
This is called the “Bigger Smaller Magic Trick”. The reason for this will be explained later. This magic trick is certain to play well to larger audiences. I used it one of my routines and it continually got big reactions from audiences of all ages; except young kids. Kids under the age of 10 don’t usually see that the “joke” is a bigger part than the magic trick itself of locating their chosen card.
