A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Doc Docherty about a new booklet/lecture notes he was about to release for his Magic Castle appearance. It is a limited edition of a signed and numbered set of only 50 copies. He agreed to let me buy around a third of the run and offer it to you.
Of course, I agreed before he even told me what was in them, but the clincher was when I saw that it included a simplified handling of a little-known Vernon trick I always wanted to mess with: Give’em The Slip. Oh. It also includes access to a bonus pdf and video tutorial for his Solid Cut which is a feature of his Castle act. Oh… and the book includes interviews with Paul Vigil and Paul Gertner.
Although the magic in the booklet is mostly advanced the bonus download that comes with it is practically self-working and an outstanding routine. Worth the price of the package in my opinion.
A limited-edition Doc Docherty The Going to California booklet.
Routines include: Choose This Bag Opener, Easy Double Leaper, Take The Slip, and The Cheat Always Wins. Also includes interviews with Paul Gertner and Paul Vigil.
Bonus Download: Solid Cut: Direct from Doc’s Magic Castle Act. Learn an excellent self-working routine you can do and start performing after your purchase.
