“Josh Burch thinks up tricks that REALLY WORK. He’s one of my favorite creators.” -Rick Lax
“Josh Burch thinks deeply about his magic. He’s focused on creating visual and highly interactive material that is easy to perform yet can fill a stage with family-friendly fun. Watch as he takes standard ideas and puts a personal creative spin on them to make each a unique original.” -Paul Draper
“With so much close-up and card magic on the market today, it is extremely refreshing to see strong and original stand-up material performed with such interesting props. Water Gun Roulette,
for example, is both entertaining and clever. It takes all of the danger out of a classic roulette but multiplies the fun and suspense for a family audience. I am also a huge fan of Bills Across. Cards Across has long been a staple for many magicians but almost every routine I’ve seen lacks meaning. There is just no reason to make a packet of playing cards travel from one spectator’s hands to another. Josh has done an excellent job giving this classic plot meaning and purpose. I can’t wait to add Bills Across to my repertoire.” -Theron Christensen
What will he teach?
In this lecture, Josh teaches his entire family show with original magic that is perfect for kids, teenagers, families, and adults. There are no card tricks in this show. Instead, you’ll learn innovative magic with poker chips, emojis, money, snake cans, and real water guns!
Fancy Ketchup – A bottle of ketchup transforms into a can of potato chips with a spring snake surprise!
Reactions – An interactive trick using five emojis and tons of audience interaction. This trick ALWAYS ends with a surprise!
Modern Water to Wine – Josh takes this legendary premise, makes it practical for the real world, and shares his tasty twist ending you’ll love.
Transfer – This is the cleanest bills across you’ll ever see, and Josh’s routine makes it a real workhorse. This is perfect for stage, close-up, or walk-around.
Water Gun Roulette – This is family-friendly Russian roulette that uses real water and real water guns. Can your audience avoid getting wet?
PK Chip – A poker chip moves earily at the fingertips. The Magician then causes it to melt in a spectator’s hand.
Off the Grid – Create a magic square with a freely selected number. Then prove that you predicted that number by revealing a secret message or photo!
Lecture Notes – In addition to the lecture, you will also receive over 60 pages of lecture notes complete with scripts, the artwork needed to perform some of these effects, and several bonus effects including Josh’s chair test, and a huge prediction using a Twister game board.
