“The best card trick in the world”, reimagined so you can predict a specific time of day. An ideal routine for media appearances on radio and TV. It blows people’s minds anywhere, anytime, and it resets in seconds. The Touring Secrets Guide includes instructions for making the deck and performing it.

The Touring Secrets Guide is based on 16 years on the road as the largest illusion show in Canada. Ted & Marion Outerbridge have been reviewed as “champions of magic” (Bergedorfer Zeitung, Germany) and “the most successful magicians in Canada” (Montreal Gazette). The Touring Secrets Guide was presented at the Outerbridge lecture at the 2015 IBM Convention in Jacksonville, Florida.

“This is without a doubt the best set of lecture notes I’ve seen, actually it’s more like a book. Full details and in color which reflects on the type of work the Outerbridge’s do on and off stage. If you have EVER thought about putting together a tour or even currently tour this book is for you. It covers EVERYTHING you would need to know which can only come from years of being on the road – 16 years to be exact! These are the real secrets of magic and how to make a living. Actually, even if you didn’t tour Ted talks about radio interviews, press, publicity, etc. which we can all learn from.


“A few words to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your lecture notes. Not only were they instructive and entertaining, they were inspiring as well! It was like I was sitting across the table from you and that we had a discussion on what it takes to succeed in this business. Your generosity in sharing the ins and outs of being on the road, promoting the show, getting media attention and creating material provided me with real insights that you can only get by paying your dues on a span of many years. Thanks for saving me some potential headaches and shortening my learning curve.

The tricks you explain are great, entertaining and, of course, practical. Not only did I truly enjoy the lecture notes, I got better as a magician and human being as a result of reading them! Thanks again!”

“Great for a person wanting to know the ins and outs of doing road shows.”

“THIS is an AWESOME deal! Love the technical rider and the promotion idea section!!”

“The information is very detailed, and it’s the real deal on how to keep a show on the road.”

“I really liked it! Thanks Ted, I enjoyed the chapter on road cases and the structure of your day on the road and more…”

“Who wouldn’t want the Outerbridge “Touring Secrets Guide” … real secrets and tips pertaining to the theatrical scene that exists in today’s market – to put together a working touring magic/illusion show. It’s a bargain at triple the price.”

“Excellent material from cover to cover. Do yourself a favor and pick one up.”
