The Six Card Trick

This is the first trick I ever saw, where a magician counted six cards, threw one away but still had six cards. So I tried to learn the trick, but each time I threw away one card, I only had five left. And then a seventh card appeared.  I threw that one away but it came back. So I never did learn the Six Card Trick … or did I?

If you’ve seen my show over the past three or four years you may well have seen me perform this trick.  The kids love it, because they always think they’re one ahead of me when they tell me I’m dropping cards on the floor. And adults love it because they know that the cards dropped on the floor mean the trick is working, even though I don’t seem to realise it myself.  I hope you enjoy it.
