JC'S Super Closer by JC Wagner
The reason the words ‘Super Closer’ are in the title is because… you guessed it, this is a super effect to close any show. Just watch the performance. You’ll see such a robust, full deck, interactive effect with so many climaxes built into it, that if this doesn’t close the whole show, it should be the last thing you do with a deck because anything else with cards would be anti-climactic.
After performing this myself for many years, I worked out a minor variation that would allow you to perform this effect internationally. At one point you spell to find the Aces, but that only works in English. To perform this without spelling, instead of Kings as the last 4 cards, use JACKS. Then, instead of spelling the suits, you will COUNT to the VALUE of the JACKS… which would be 11. This would even eliminate the need to displace a card at one point, to make up the difference between spelling Diamond and Clubs. This may sound cryptic, but you’ll understand once you learn the original.
JC Wagner wasn’t a physically big guy in the real world, but in the world of magic, he was a giant. He performed real magic behind the bar, with a natural instinct for how to deliver the goods in a powerful, entertaining way. This was his Super Closer, and believe me when I tell you… he would rock the house with this!
