Chop Cup Live Performance, Coin Magic, Matt Johnson, Deck Review & More | 5x5 With Craig Petty
5x5 is a unique concept. Craig has five minutes each to talk about five different subjects. There is a countdown timer at the bottom of the screen that runs down at the bottom of the screen. When the timer expires, Craig immediately moves onto the next topic. 5x5 is always fun, quick and snappy because you never know what's going to get asked.
In this week's 5 x 5 Craig covers the following topics:
1. You see a live performance of Chop Chop at an actual gigging situation. Craig specialises in the use of the Chop Cup and has several routines. This is one of several routines that he performs at every gig
2. We run the same footage of the Chop Cup routine but this time with a commentary track over the top of the performance. This way you can see what Craig does and why he does it. Craig covers misdirection, bad loads and direction of attention
3. Craig performs and reviews Chinese Coin Colour Change by Joker Magic. This is a great gimmicked coin that makes performing spellbound routines almost self working
4. You get to see a sneak peek of an upcoming Talk Magic Interview. Recently Craig interviewed Matt Johnson who has had an incredibly varied career and is now known as one of the top escape artists in the UK. This is a sneak peek of an interview with Matt that is coming soon on Magic TV
5. Craig reviews The Game Over Deck. This is a very cool deck of cards and the box looks like an old style Nintendo Game Boy. You really should check these cards out, they are great!
That's everything for this week's episode. You can watch the full 5x5 below. Don't forget to let us know what you think in the comments.
