I am fond of the trick Uniflection from The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings.  It seems to be overlooked by many magicians.  The effect is having two cards selected and returned to the deck. Then you pull out four of a kind and display them briefly.  Then the four cards are shown to be four copies of the first selection, then they are shown to be four copies of the second selection and finally shown to be four jokers.  It's nice because you only have four cards in your hand at any given time so there's no extra cards to hide.  It has a nice solution for the handling of the fourth card in a triple lift sequence. 
If you don't know it I recommend you look take a look into it.  I've gotten a lot of mileage from it and very good reactions from both laymen and magicians.

Here's my performance of Uniflection so you can see what I'm talking about.

Nice performance Matthew. Just out of curiosity, in a hypothetical scenario where you have no table but you want to perform that great routine, would you do that rhythm count into a specs hands? (its not odd to pick the packet back up again since you scoop the three cards with the final joker).

I almost always do it in someone's hands, even if I have a table handy.  The most common theory I hear regarding the method is that I'm somehow hiding 12 or so cards in my hand and laying out four single cards in their palm is a nice way of cancelling out that theory.
