The four card – 3 Card Monte

This is a magic performance of the classic con game Three Card Monte.  But this one is done with four cards!  The setting is an old-fashioned Carnival and Fair in a small Midwestern town.  I was 16 1/2 when I first saw a working conman perform the Monte.

The inspiration and influences in this four card Three Card Monte include magic greats such as Joe Riding, Fred Kaps, and Harry Anderson. The story is my own with inspiration from Harry Anderson.
