More recently during Mario’s tour to Las Vegas it was well received by the street performing students of the Magic and Mystery School. Mario lead a hands on workshop and sold out yet again.

It has been performed in Las Vegas both on stage and on the street.

REPORTS and feedback have been piling in.

One such report was by a street and festival performer Gavin DeMersseman who has used it over 50 times with out so much as a paper cut.

Another report by a Magician Alan Burdick tells us how he is using the trap as a visual aid to illustrate the dangers of drug taken.

The effect was performed at sub zero temperatures, at the highest point yet at an elevation of  10,947 feet in  Montana USA by Andrew Norstrum!

Since Mario has released the effect in 2015 – it has sold out twice so far –  once during his performances and lecture at the BlackPool Magic Convention 2015. It also sold out in Las Vegas during Focus on Street Magic. It now being shipped and performed around the world. Germany, Holland, Italy Portugal, France, Spain. Iceland, Holland Japan, Canada and the USA just to name a few.

In Las Vegas “The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick” is being performed from the street to the stage.



A signed card is lost in a deck of cards which is then put inside the jaws of a fully working animal trap!
The performer now claims he will ripple through the cards, find the signed card and pluck it out before the animal trap snaps shut on their fingers. This is exactly what appears to happen next.

A fantastic cliff hanger.  This effect is a great closer. As seen at the Blackpool Magic Convention 2015.

He now uses it for his commando style street show.

A bit of History of The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick 

For many years'  Sideshow performers have performed an effect of plunging their hand into the jaws of an animal trap. The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick was born right out of the Sideshow world. 

I was first shown this stunt by a gospel preacher - Pete Hodge back in the early 90’s and I first performed it as a side show stunt. Then in the late 1990’s  I  came up with what I called The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick combining the effect with a deck of cards.  This is when a chosen card is lost in a deck and the cards placed into a trap. I then would snatch the card out of the deck before the trap snapped shut on my fingers. 

I later discovered it was a common name for a  stunt when a trap and cards are combined!  I also discovered the following combinations - 

The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick - involving a sword

The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick - involving a knife

The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick - involving a mouse trap.

I did some research and from what I could find at the time - the longest standing magician that also used a pack of cards and an animal trap who called their effect The Worlds most Dangerous Card Trick was Master Payne. He had been performing his routine since the 80s. We talked about his effect and routine and mine and we decided to write up our scripts and share.

So now I am sharing my routine with you that has years of honing and the history of the influence from a sideshow perspective.   I hope you enjoy it!  

 

"I just saw Mario Morris's  Most Dangerous Card Trick and I knew I had to get it.  Its going straight into my show and I know its going to be a fantastic success."

  • A real head-turner and makes people stop and watch!

    5 Stars

    I bought this two years ago after seeing it demonstrated at the Blackpool Magic Convention. I knew that this would be a brilliant piece in my street show, not only because it is an awesome trick but it's a real head-turner and makes people stop and watch.

    The DVD instructions that you receive with the trap are very good giving you a run through of how it works as well as the safety of it all, that really put me to ease...

    I have yet to do this blindfolded but have enjoyed every performance I've done so far.

    Setting this trap on my table in the street from the start is a great way to build my crowd. The intrigue, the danger, it all helps to make people watch. Everyone loves a little bit of danger, don't they?!

    Don't buy this... IT'S A TRAP ...

    But: It's a great trick... I bought this for my streetact and after a couple of hours testing (yes, you need nerves and BoS when you try it the first times... and YES - IT COULD HURT... I'm a MAN so... YES it could HURT!)
    I decided not to wait for the next street show and did it in my Comedy-Magic-Show on stage... It was hilarious - People love the suspense, the weird idea to grap into a real animal trap (yes it is real) fits my style!
    So it is part of my Stand-Up-Show now and I will show this also on my cruiseship-gigs next week round New Zealand!
    I use it in the middle of my 45min act - but when street-Show-season starts it will become a closer... Perfect for hatlines ... Perfect Crowdkeeper!

    The DVD is quite good explanation - I think to perform this trick right you should know about "basic Cardcontrol" (which is also shown on the DVD, but a Pro should be able to manage this :)).
    Mario also shows a "blindfold version" - I think I will give this a try on streets as well :)

    Thanks Mario for sharing this routine!

    The Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick

    5 Stars

    Before Christmas 2015 I brought the Worlds Most Dangerous Card Tricks produced by Mario Morris. It truly is great and a fantastic prop. I have used a few different closer for my show but no of them really fit and fix in. However the Worlds Most Dangerous Card Trick seems to fit the bill very well. It has a natural hook the promise of something dangerous. Then when you show people it there not going anywhere. And once the deck is in the trap and you explain what you’re going to do well you have all the time for hat lines.

    The video is clear and straight forward and carries a lot of information and ideas. However I would say you need confidence in the very basics of card control at least.

    I’d also like to note the customer care is great as well. I had a few question before I ordered it and I got a quick reply. I also got order confirmation and delivery tracker straight away. These guys are good at what they do.

    Thank you so much Mario and Lady Vee this is really is a great piece and it’s in my show already and it working a treat.

    Alan Worman.

    This is an amazing effect. I was looking for a cardtrick that is not like any other cardtrick and this was it. I am looking forward to perform this on stage and in the street or if I have to do an impromptu setup. If everybody have seen enough cardtricks this is the one to do. Thank you Mario for selling this one. Regards Gunter (Belgium)
