Routines from the Professional Repertoire of Michael Close

The first book in the Workers series contains two of the strongest routines in all of close-up magic: Dr. Strangetrick and the now legendary Pothole Trick.

Workers One also includes The Unbelievably Useful Comedy Prop (a utility item disguised as a gag), the Origami Bunny (a give-away item Michael still uses), a bit of history about Michael and his philosophy on magic, and tips on audience management in close-up and stand-up situations.

Michael Close's Workers series contains some of the most commercial, entertaining, and powerful magic ever published -  repertoire spanning almost thirty years of professional performing in real-world conditions. Michael has held nothing back. You’ll learn the how and the why behind every routine.

What’s New in the Updated Version

Although there isn’t any new material, you will find annotations from 2004 and also new thoughts from 2021. I just can’t stop thinking about some of these effects. 

These annotations consist of commentary, behind-the-scenes information, tips and suggestions, references to further developments found in my later ebooks, and explanations of inside jokes.

Thanks, Doug. I hope you find the book to be a good refresher for the many topics we have discussed during our private sessions. - Michael Close


Workers one

Had trouble viewing on my Android. I have since ordered the ultimate dvd from Magicbox UK, as I wanted to learn the ,Dr Strangetrick. I just find it hard to learn from pdf instructions. My bad, but looking forward to the DVD.

Card Warp

I wanted to learn Michael’s version of Card Warp named Dr Strangetrick which is explained in Workers One. Excellent routine and well written explanations of the mechanics. I chose his version due to the amazing display when you ‘open up’ the time machine. Best display I have seen. Thank you for sharing this great routine Michael.
