I did a search and did not see another review for this, so if there is one, please let me know!

I bought this in August and revisited it yesterday. It was a 2-fer download with another one I'll review called "Ram Jollock".

Red Herring is deceptively easy to perform and I'm pretty sure would slide past almost everyone unless they really watched you repeatedly perform it.

You shuffle/cut/whatever the deck and hand it to the spectator. She deals cards to the table singly, and in 'clumps', shuffling and moving cards around. (I'm being a tad cagey here because I don't want to expose it). Ultimately a card is selected, cut into the deck and the deck shuffled.

You take the deck and with all the acting ability at your disposal, you produce the card.

Once you hand the deck out, you don't touch it until it's over, and there is no peeking going on.

I like this a lot because, to the spectator, it becomes a "no way" moment, and there's lots of space for entertainment and other bits to make it more mysterious.

The download is a 12-minute video demo and explanation -- well explained.

Add to that the fact that the 2-fer is only $15 -- great bang for the buck.

It's a good trick. It's also buried in print. Anyone with access to back issues of MAGIC Magazine can track it down easily enough.

Is the "Ram Jollock", the same as found on Past Midnight?

I don’t know if he is simply re-teaching the handling from Past Midnight, but there is a very, very smart version of this on Michael Muldoons video called “Fool Me Once“. It’s the version that I use. The difference between this and Benjamin Earl’s trick is that you can find the spectator’s card without looking at the deck.

They cut off a portion of the deck, they look at the card they cut to, they replace the cut portion and shuffle the deck. You are now able to name their card without picking up the deck.

When I saw this, it fooled me very badly. I had no idea how he could know what card his spectator selected.

I don't have "Past Midnight" so have no comparison.

Great trick, super easy, a total fooler.  You can work on the reveal and performance because there is very little to think about.  Highly recommended.
