Tricks Against Humanity (DVD & Gimmicks) Review

Official Review

I was told by our contact at Murphy’s that nobody wanted to review this. Sad…

My wife and I have a long history of playing naughty social games with our friends. We also really enjoyed the holiday Cards Against Humanity letters.

Plus I’m a firm believer in using magic to make a statement. I have several routines in my repertoire that would “cause a stir” in some social circles. The trick, of course, is to know your audience.

So I guess it’s up to me to review.

First-off, the subtitle of this product is “A collection of magic tricks for @$$#HOLES.” I mostly disagree with this. It implies that you need to be a jerk to perform this material. With the exception of “David Coppafeel,” there’s not a single routine on the DVD that requires you to be mean or nasty to your audience.

Yeah, they’re all in questionable taste and certainly won’t work for all audiences. And they need to be played tongue-in-cheek. But, again, know your audience.

Following my own guidelines, my rating is based entirely on how well the material is presented and how well it matches what might be expected of it from someone who was inclined to purchase.

With that being said, it pretty-much lives up to the promise. In fact, I probably would have given it 5 stars had it not been for some really bad audio and video on some of the clips and the fact that the menu system sucks (I didn’t realize there was a second page of tricks until I looked at the product description).

I’m not going to tell you what the tricks are, but if you’re at all interested in buying this DVD, I can at least tell you the theme of each piece. Then you can decide for yourself.

  • Keno Man - phallic origami
  • Lemon Party - revealing someone’s innermost “dirty” thoughts
  • Spong Dong - self-explanatory
  • One Night Stand - a spectator’s name and number ends up in a “packet” in your wallet
  • Black Pool Prediction - just a gag that’s gotta be done for someone you know, unless you want to get punched
  • Card To Tampon - self-explanatory
  • Blow - vanishing powder
  • Dick Trick - a phallic card spread layout for a card revelation
  • Self-rolling Joint - a classic with a previously-illegal substance
  • Magic Flip Offs - common finger tricks focused on just one finger
  • Disappearing Coke - use a standard card move with packets of powder
  • Flash Joint - another classic
  • David Coppafeel - this is assault; don’t do it
  • Dirty Magazine Test - self-explanatory

Available at your favorite Murphy’s Magic dealer
