Doc Eason Card Under Glass (2 DVD set) Review

Official Review

Doc Eason presents his killer 30 minute routine in the 2 DVD Doc Eason Card Under Glass project. This DVD set receives the highest rating possible. The routine and presented effects are rousing and Doc presents and teaches this multi phased routine, after 35 years of perfecting it. And, it is perfect.

Every time the spectator’s card appears under Doc’s glass it is astonishing, and he does it over and over and surprises every time.

Even if you have no intention of learning this very long card mind-blowing routine, you should still consider buying this DVD set. The lessons taught are not just “how to” perform this modular effect, but also how to deal with different types of spectators and a master lesson on misdirection.

The production quality is excellent and the structure of the DVD is very smart. The ad copy and promotional video are right on.

First, Doc demonstrates his routine in front of a live bar audience. Doc then breaks down the routine in a studio setting and teaches it a step at a time. Although Doc suggested that those who are unfamiliar with some basic moves (like the double undercut) should not start with this DVD set, I disagree. This project is perfect for all levels of performer. It is inspirational, informative and worth having in your library, no matter who you are.

The DVD set also includes a “toolbox” in which Doc teaches various sleights with excellent camera work and camera angles that make the instruction very easy to understand.

I particularly enjoyed the “director’s cut” in which Doc, in an overdubbed monologue, talks about the routine as you are watching it. He highlights his techniques and gives invaluable lessons in audience management and misdirection.

The interview with Doc is great and I wish this was a 3 DVD set with a longer interview.

This purchase is a no brainer.

Manufacturer's Description:

A classic Bar trick brought to new heights...

With its origins in the magic bars of Chicago, the card under glass idea was popularized by Heba Haba Al (Andrucci). Al taught his version to Bob Sheets, who, in turn, fooled a young man named DOC EASON. Doc spent the next 35 years perfecting the trick and the routine. Slipping a card under a drink with an audience watching his every move is hard enough to do once but, even after telling his patrons he is going to do it, Doc does it an incredible 6 more times!

Also included:
TOOLBOX - instructions on the moves and sleights and psychology.
INTERVIEW - "The Boisterous Participant" (or how to deal with hecklers)
DIRECTORS CUT - Doc explains every step of the routine while you watch him do it! Not just how, but the all-important why. It is an advanced lesson not only of card handling, but of CROWD handling.

MODULAR ROUTINE - each one of the tricks is strong enough to stand by itself. The full routine is over 30 minutes of entertainment! A roller coaster of fun and amazement!
