Magic / Close-Up

Scaled fringeguide

Armed with only 52 playing cards, two hands and 60 minutes, jden redden—the expert at cards—is back from his sell-out debut, 2016 Fringe show, Reading Minds and Other Fascinating Lies.

This new production uncovers the secrets and dirty work of the gaming elite, demonstrating world-class card manipulation and deceit at the card table.

The show shadows the logical conclusions and plays-out the physical interpretations of the book The Expert at the Card Table. A cult-like bible of the Magical and Gambling world published in 1902 by an equally mysterious man known as S. W. Erdnase.

This crash course in card cheating will leave you dazzled—opening your mind to another world full of exotic card flourishes, cardistry and cunning deceit.

You'll never play a game of Poker the same again.

The Expert at the Card Table is a production of Fascinating Lies; you can also see jden redden in SUPERHUMAN at The Bally in Gluttony from the 7th to 19th of March.

Presented by:
Fascinating Lies
