First of all, thank you for being here.
I called and I was begging you to
be here before the special air.
I so the special already and it’s amazing.
I don’t know how you to do, what you do.
And it’s I’m always plan
of way by everything.
So thanks for being here.
>>So do some weird stuff right now,
>>I need a somebody I can come up here.
>>Do you wanna.
>>Whoever you want.
>>It’s up to me?
It’s up to you.
Maybe the girl with the blue.
Yeah, yeah yeah right here.
The one that doesn’t want to come.
maybe if we can stand up, and can you?
Yeah, and can you stand up like this?
>>What’s your name?
>>Very nice to meet you.
>>Thanks for helping.
>>Ellen, do you wanna mix the deck
a little bit?
I need you to make sure it’s okay.
Great, now what I’m
going to have you do is,
let me give you this Sharpie, take that.
Choose a card but
don’t let anybody see it.
Don’t let anyone see it, so
take one out and show nobody.
And can you put your initials
on the face of the card?
>>Don’t let anybody see.
>>No one look.
>>Just hold it up and sign the face.
Don’t let anybody see it, Ellen.
>>No one’s seen it.
>>No one can see it.
>>And then do this for me, say stop.
>>Okay, put it back.
And you remember the card, right?
So now, you’re gonna do this with Ellen.
>>Now, it’s important to know that
Ellen’s card isn’t at the bottom, nor
is it at the top, okay?
But as I shuffle, you’re gonna try to
estimate where Ellen’s card ends up.
Ellen, hold your left hand palm up and
put your right hand above, but do not
say your card, but press the whole deck.
Hold them so nothing spills.
>>So now, I can’t do anything.
I actually like this trick so much I’m
going to watch it from the audience of me.
>>You’re going to decide where the card
is in the deck.
Wherever you say it is,
the card will be in that exact location.
13th from the top.
>>If you’re not sure, you can change.
>>No, I decided.
>>Okay, so then the card is 13th.
Ellen, count 13 cards.
Hey, hold your hands up.
One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten, 11,
12 and show everybody your card.
Where’d you sign?
It’s hard to see the signature.
>>I didn’t, that’s not the card.
>>That’s not your card?
>>Cuz I took the card
out of the deck Ellen.
I folded it four times,
flicked it through the air and
it landed under the face of your watch.
Can you turn your wrist over?
There’s a card under there.
Yeah, show everybody,
show the camera there’s a card.
>>You can take it out,
open it up.
>>Thank you, thank you very much.
Nice meeting you too.
>>We’re not done yet.
>>We’re not done, we’re gonna-
>>Am I done?
>>Yes, you’re done, you can go away.
>>Can we do, yeah,
let’s do another one and
then we’ll take a break.
[CROSSTALK] Yeah, yeah,
I want to see more, don’t you?
>>For this one, I need a strong guy.
There’s a guy there with his arm up.
>>With the black shirt?
>>With the black shirt, can he come up?
>>And now can you mix these a little bit?
How you doing?
How are you doing?
What’s your name?
Nice to meet you Josh.
>>So Josh the reason I ask for
somebody strong it a perfect
that’s a serious soft by the way.
let’s take like a quarter of the deck.
Will group like this.
Make I want you to Cut them in half.
>>It’s gonna be difficult, yeah.
>>You said you were strong.
>>You put your hand up.
>>No, to be honest,
it’s very difficult to do it.
>>You want me to, okay.
>>No, keep those not two two, put them
in your pocket or something, yeah.
>>But if you were to do it,
here’s the way you’d do it.
So, you just squeeze the deck like this,
and then you just,
See, that’s how you cut the deck in half.
>>Ellen, which half do you want?
>>I’ll take this half.
>>Pick up a group of
cards put them on the bottom.
So, yeah, cut the deck complete it.
>>Good and again,
pick up a group put them on the bottom.
Can you do it behind your back?
>>Cut the deck.
>>Complete the cut but
leave them behind your back.
>>And then I want you to
choose either the top or
the bottom card and
hide it in your pocket.
Either the top or the bottom piece and
hide it in your pocket.
And the rest we don’t need, the big pile.
Here’s the idea, you’ll do this for me.
You can see that all of the cards
are completely shuffled,
everything is different,
Ellen actually mixed the deck.
>>She did a great job, yes?
Just reach in.
Most people go for the obvious card.
Like the ace.
Or most people might go for the other ace.
>>I did not.
>>You took the king,
were gonna go for the obvious card,
then you changed.
Well you took half of a card.
And Ellen took half of a card.
>>But when you chose a card,
you actually made a choice.
When Ellen chose a card,
she did it behind her back and
she had no idea what she chose.
But together you have a whole card.
Should I takes the pot?
>>That’s up to you.
