Tear Down Review

This was one of the first Andrew Mayne effects I could actually use. Most of the DVDs or books I have purchased of his contain concepts that could never work real-world, and I've often felt burned and have stayed away from many of his products because the descriptions don't tell it all. That being said, I love this trick.

For one thing, it's impromptu. Second, it involves a signed newspaper. It plays relatively great, but there's a horrible moment where you have to ditch the paper shreds and it doesn't look good. You'll have to tweak this part to make it clean. Other than that, this is pretty good for the price.

Andrew Mayne presents a radical twist on the classic newspaper tear (based on Jim Steinmeyer's Incessant Newspaper) - a completely impromptu and inspectable newspaper tear!


A spectator is asked to sign a totally unprepared newspaper right off the newsstand. The magician then takes the paper and rips it to shreds. He crumples the pieces together and then visually restores the newspaper! The restored newspaper, complete with signature, is handed back to the spectator to inspect and keep as a souvenir.

  • Totally impromptu: No preparation, no gimmicks
  • No switches, no duplicate newspapers
  • Everything can be inspected before and after the effect
  • Tear Down can be performed with full-sized newspapers, tabloid-sized and even magazines!
Tear Down is one of the most practical and visual newspaper tear you'll ever learn. Once you learn it, you'll be able to perform it anytime, anywhere. Zero-preparation, no gimmicks, no duplicates. Just pick up a newspaper and do it!

Running Time Approximately 33min
