10 Incredible Hands Off routines
The one condition I set myself in developing these routines is that
effects would not be diluted just because they were 'Hands Off' – in
fact, if anything, they would become stronger. Well they did become
stronger, much stronger! A couple of these routines have been published
before however they have now been fully updated to become totally
'Hands Off'. For instance my 'Echo' routine is fully described with
complete patter and a new finish. There are also lots of new routines
that are all extremely commercial.
Out Of My Hands -
This is literally... Out Of This World!
The SH*T Spell -
Could be shot or shut, but it's actually sh*t!
McDobson's Aces –
Nothing Two Faced about this trick!
Echo - You,
hilariously, teach them how to perform a card trick.
Card Trick - A
selection is revealed in a truly impossible way, yet it's so easy!
Invisible - The
table, deck, card and card case are invisible - they don't even see the
Second Chance -
They'll have "no chance" to work this one out!
Birthday Card - DIY
version, with modified handling, of my marketed effect.
Lucky Numbers -
Both your lucky numbers are different, but they still lead to the same
Tossed Deck - I
don't toss it myself anymore, I get some ' Other Tosser' to do it for

Look, No Hands by Wayne Dobson
Reviewed by Liam Montier in MagicWeek.co.uk March 2011
“Look No Hands” is a new collection of 10 routines from the ever
astonishing Wayne Dobson, and the theme, as you may have guessed, is
that all of the tricks have been structured to work without the need for
the magician to touch anything.
Although Wayne mentions that he came around to this style of routining
through necessity (due to his M.S.) he goes on to mention how much
stronger his routines became as a direct result, and encourages the
reader to explore this concept. While some of the routines would take
masterful audience management to keep completely hands off (which Wayne
has in spades), there is much to learn from adapting as much of this
approach as you would be comfortable with.
Out of the ten effects, some have been published before, but Wayne
includes enough new ideas and presentational twists to make even avid
collectors of his work find value in this new booklet, and some of my
personal favourites are mentioned below.
“Out of my Hands” is an interesting variation on Paul Curry’s classic
‘Out of This World’ which features a great ‘build-up’ construction,
starting with the performer being able to identify some of the cards
colours, and then two spectators simultaneously separating the deck in
classic fashion, “The Sh*t Spell” is an extremely funny version of the
classic ‘spelling’ trick that, while it won’t be for everyone, for the
right performer is going to be a killer.
“Invisible” is another ideal trick that I can see working its way into
acts left right and centre, where a card chosen from the ‘invisible’
deck turns out to be genuinely the only card in a prediction envelope in
In my opinion, those tricks alone make this a worthwhile purchase, but
then there is so much more in the booklet. New versions of Wayne’s
classic ‘Tossed Out Deck’ routine and ‘Echo’ are, well, even more
classic than before, and that just covers half of the material included
in this collection.
Well written by Stephen Tucker, nicely produced (there are no photos,
but none of the routines need them to be honest) and would be an
entertaining read for the stories and jokes alone. The fact that this
booklet also contains the repertoire of one of the most entertaining
performers magic has ever produced is a rather splendid bonus.

Six Masterpieces by Wayne Dobson
Forget The Magnificent Seven and The Famous Five,
instead... prepare to encounter Six Masterpieces from the fertile
mind of Wayne Dobson.
The six jaw-droppingly good routines in this book were originally
destined to be either marketed, as individual tricks, or unleashed on
the unsuspecting magic world in the form of, what would have had to be,
a high priced DVD. However, in these times of economic uncertainty,
rather than put you to all that expense... Wayne has saved you a small
fortune by publishing them all in this little book, which has cost you a
fraction of what just one of the tricks would have cost as a marketed
To do this, he has had to put his thinking cap on and adapt all six
routines so that you will be able to perform them with props that you
either already have, will be able to buy or can make at very little
cost. My personal favourite is Once upon a Time - a routine which
truly has a fairy tale ending! Wayne has cleverly built the prop for
this item into the book itself.... genius!
Settle down now, fasten your safety belts, extinguish those cigarettes
and enjoy the company of; Best Friends, Amnesia, Only Joking, Every
Time, Perspiration and The Once upon a Time.

Special Effects by Wayne Dobson
Special Effects is my latest, and I honestly believe my best book to date.
Within its forty pages, you'll encounter fourteen really strong close-up
and stand-up routines. All my own offerings appear here in print for the
very first time, and include most of the core routines that elevated me
to stardom not so many years ago.
I have stripped away virtually all the sleight-of-hand from most of the
routines and presented you with a collection of tried and tested
'workers' that are very strong in effect, but equally easy to perform.
As I said of one of them, "If I can do it... you DEFINITELY can!" This,
I believe, is true of them all.
Along the way Stephen Tucker, who wrote the book for me, has suggested
some very clever additions, tips, and ideas, and even a complete
I have been absolutely amazed that, after being quite the finger-flicker
myself for many years, I have been able to retain the strength of each
effect, but with the absolute minimum of dexterity being required to
There are routines with business cards, playing cards, bottles and
bottle caps and even one with a silk and a borrowed packet of
Finally, I'd like to thank Pat Page, Steve Beam and Stephen Tucker for
permission to include their three routines, and YOU for at least reading
this brief book description. I hope that you are now considering buying

something from the collection, which I'll be more than happy to do.
