Please Shuffle The Cards

What would happen if an award winning magician was asked to do an entire show by himself with a deck of cards he’s never touched that’s been shuffled by strangers? The answer is “Please Shuffle The Cards.” Host of The Quiz Box, and noted beard enthusiast, Erik Tait presents a comedy magic show featuring brand new effects, eye popping cardistry, and a demonstration of why you should never play cards with someone as handsome as he is. Appearing in the Backstage Bistro complete with projectors so everyone can see the magic as if they were sitting at the table themselves, this is the sleight of hand your mother warned you about. Arrive early and shuffle the cards yourself so you can be a part of the mind bending finale.
