The Expert At The Card Table – How To Cheat At Cards

February 16 @ 6:00 pm - March 18 @ 7:00 pm

$17 - $25
Back from a sold-out season and rave reviews in 2017, jden redden returns for a 60-minute journey uncovering the dirty-work of the gambling elite. Armed with only 52 playing cards and two hands — this crash course in card cheating is a world-class demonstration of card manipulation and deceit at the card table.

In 1902 a mysterious and anonymous man by the same of S. W. Erdnase published a book called The Expert at the Card Table. In the following years this book has gained cult-like status in the magic and gambling world — required reading by any magician and gambler. This show is the physical interpretation and logical conclusion of that book.
