Thank You Allison would you mind joining me at the table I have a trick that you've never seen before and I want you to see it up close I would love to see okay now Penn & Teller it's a pleasure to be here and I brought something special to show you it might even look a little familiar because I brought a deck of marked cards you see Ellison Penn & Teller know an awful lot about marked cards and they would tell you that of course most magicians mark the cards on the back however I marked them a little differently I mark them on the edge yeah see you can see on the edge of the deck it's like a little pattern like a barcode pattern there's information there you just don't know how to read it and I'm gonna teach you right now oh thank you no I actually marked each card with this permanent marker and that's important because each card has a unique code on it but it's permanent and I can't alter it or change it in any manner now if you take a look at the cards now listen I want you to confirm for everybody that all the cards are mixed up in other words they're not all the red cards here in black cards are shuffled pack of cards right yes and I'm going to begin by actually having you select a card so as now this works with any card in the deck so I want you to choose one at random so just say stop as I riffle the pack okay look at the card remember the name of the card okay and will that Penn & Teller see it I'm going to place it in the pack and normally at this point in a card trick the magician squares up the deck and shuffles the card right guys yeah that's magic 101 but I'm not going to do that I'm going to give these cards what we call an unruffled now it's the opposite of a shuffle in fact if you take a close look right here I'm going to show you that you can see it looks like a shuffle it sounds like a shuffle but it's actually an unruffled and if you watch the marks on the edge of the deck you'll see it's starting to read unfold four times on side of the pack see because I'm actually unsure fold these cards into four different groups parts clubs spades and diamonds the four suits in the deck yeah but if I give the cards another I shuffle just like this and you can see when I give the cards a nun shuffle it looks like a shuffle it sounds like a shuffle but it's not that's an unruffled and in fact take a look it's now starting to read uncoupled two times on the side of it because I've now separated all the high cards from all the low cards yeah but it gets even more interesting if I give the cards one more on shuffle and if I do it I want you to stare at the edge of the deck and see if you can tell the moment that these cards become but but Alison if it says unruffled I have to prove it remember in the beginning I showed you they were all mixed up I'm going to take a look at the knob because from the ace through the King of Hearts of clubs of diamonds of spades it's a completely Oh Lily there's one minor detail in the beginning you selected a card and it's somewhere here in this uncoupled deck now I could look for your card face-up but they're all in sequence perfect order that wouldn't be too difficult to find and besides it probably wouldn't fool Penn and Teller but if I found your card facedown it would be a little more impressive for the first time tell me and everyone was what was the name of your card the King of Spades if I give the cards one more unshackle and if I rearrange almost every card in the pack except for the top and bottom cards I think I can hit it and I did hey and tell her then I think it's pretty clear at this point I can find any card in this deck I want to find and I can also put these cards in almost any order I want them look if I give them one more on shuffle take a look at now the cards have been separated all the red cards and all the black holes so there's really only one final question answered and that is did I full pen and tap that is a trick that you know Penn has asked you tricking cars Penn bought my book a number of years ago to learn that trick in fact I saved his email I still have so you did a trick that you know Penn knows yes that's true but there was a little twist at the end that I that I think might have made them smile okay and now how do you come up with like the little change are you just like driving down the street and you're like ah wait a second ten days of thinking and about another week of preparation and then another week showing it that the top sleight-of-hand artist in the world okay on video too safe is this gonna this is gonna work I don't know all right that was a wonderful performance let's see what Penn & Teller think okay gentlemen with the notebooks I want to say first before we get to the hard part I am a huge fan of Paul Garner's huge fan you were deliberating but he saved your email that you wrote him years ago no I did buy the book from him and worked forever and I'm not gonna even give one word of how that's done because he knows that I read the book he knows I worked on it I think he also knows I failed I never got good enough at it to perform it but I'm not dead yet so it's only the ending we're talking about when the Penn & Teller comes into view at the end it kind of blew our minds and we think it's the same deck of cards he started with I'll also go out with that we we don't think he did anything big and gross on that even though he's gonna table the size of an apartment yeah we don't think he did anything there so we then have two choices for what he did and I'm gonna ask this in two different ways one is could we look at the cards can you even look at the cards that you used yeah yeah I mean it they'll tell you something but not a whole lot not all of them sure because we think I'll tell you before this well it says says penny teller inspecting the props pretty clearly and if we do that and we do that we did nothing and we do this yeah you know we actually it does we did learn something from this deck I don't know if you can see the angle on this Paul but if you look I don't want to screw up your whole debt but if I do a shuffle like this I want to just watch the edge I think you'll see it coming to focus it says Paul ghertner you fooled us can lightning you

How the hell

I'm more impressed at how he manages to do perfect faro shuffles after perfect faro shuffles. I guess it helps a bit that the cards are marked so he can split exactly 26 cards each before each shuffle. Even then it's incredibly difficult (for me at least) to perfectly intertwine each card one after another without no overlaps. If you mess up just one faro shuffle then it messed up the entire order of the deck.

If you were to set the deck in red and black order and then keep on doing perfect faro shuffles then eventually the deck seperates so that it's half black and half red. I'm guessing it works the same with new deck order too. I have no idea how the ending works though.

It bothers me so much when they cut to reaction shots when the performer is doing something. I don't care if your jaw is dropped, I want to see the artist work their magic. Is it just me? Like, even cutting away for a second bothers me.

Alyson is just unbrearable as a host with the overly exaggerated facial expressions and the constant cuts away from the magic performance to her rubbish acting is infuriating. there's no reason why a host should ever take away the limelight from the performer, especially when they're grimacing and pouting non-stop

her candid questions and remarks are ...ugh.
