Tony Roberts Card Magic

Review by Mika Tsoi

Having the ending of this show revealed cannot even spoil it. Roberts takes a deck of cards, asks six members of the audience to shuffle different parts, then he shuffles them again repeatedly, divides them into four piles which are then revealed to be each suit in order, ace to king. It’s breathtaking and even more so when you’re all sitting around the same table. There’s still another 55 minutes of tricks before that, all delivered just as well. Roberts uses the laughs and stories as misdirection, and the ride is nothing but enjoyable. Exceptional close up magic and a great show.
