Rare video footage - The INVENTOR of the Ambitious card.
Meet Dwayne Andrew, star of his own show 'Night Magic' and apparently the inventor of the Ambitious card trick. If you click that link you can watch almost 10 minites of video of Dwayne in his own show. Now let's not get confused here, when I say 'his own show', I don't mean that this guy has his own TV show - although he tries to make out that's what the clip is. I mean a show that he paid to produce to make out he is a big star, when really he's a fat twat who does a few tricks quite badly.
But the video is worth watching - if for no other reason than it's a laugh.
He claims in the introduction to have 'created' the ambitious card trick, I figured he meant he'd added some special ending to it and that's what he meant, and so gave him the benefit of the doubt. But then when he finally gets to perform the ambitious card, he actually says 'And now a trick I invented called...' Then he goes into a bulk standard, run of the mill, too many double lifts version of Ambitious card and finishes with a very below average card to pocket (and watch how long the fat cunt keeps his hand in his pocket for while loading it. And he fails to even credit the card to pocket ending, which we all know belongs to the legendary Martha Stewart.
But let's not dwell on his total lie about inventing a card trick that's been around longer than lieing itself, there's so much more to pick on...
In the opening credits a series of words flash up onto the screen, 'Magic', 'Entertaining', 'Professional', 'close-up', 'slight of hand' (yes he really spells it that way), and finally 'unbelievable'. Well one out of six aint bad I suppose.
The opening trick 'Vaudeville Aces' is shocking. It's worth watching just to hear the worlds worst impression of WC Fields, May West and others. Not to mention some of the most crap jokes you'll ever see crammed into one magic(?) routine. Oh and watch for his technique on the pass, I watched real close and couldn't see the technique (the pass stood out a mile).
He also does a terrible one in the hand, two in the pocket routine with nuts and bolts, I think it's the Doc Eason routine only Dwayne manages to make it look non-magical and non-entertaining. Watch the amazing final vanish and then ask yourself 'would that fool George W Bush?'
His ring on string is also awful. At one point he says "at this point some people say 'why does all the magic happen in your closed hand'..." I guess he's hard of hearing, what most people really say at that point is "Do we have to stay to the end of his act?"
If he really shows that video to people who might be interested in booking him for a show - how does he get any work?
