A Brief Glimpse
The art of "Table Hopping" or "Close-up magic" is to maintain the level of surprise and spontaneity and then blend it with true magical expertise. Whether it is defying, bending or merely suspending the very laws of nature, King Robert will captivate, enthrall and mesmerise everyone with his special brand of magic and humour.
The audience will become connected to each other as King Robert involves them in two senses. One they can touch, examine and choose the objects used (even use their own eg: a finger ring or a borrowed bill) and the other that the magic is personalized to suit the spectator be it a city gent or a Texan cowboy!
The magic has a furious pace not allowing the audience to catch their breath between stupefying effects!
A freely selected signed card vanishes and reappears in the most impossible of places: in the pocket in the wallet and even inside a mobile phone!

Every time King Robert predicts the next card relating a fascinating story about the origin of the Tarot.
The Invisible Deck (Mentalism)
This must be la crème de la crème of all card effects.
King Robert holds nothing in his hands, fans an imaginary deck and asks the spectator to take an imaginary card. Against all odds he finds the
card reversed in a normal deck.

King Robert can make a prediction from 2 separate freely selected cards (mind blowing)

trickery and deception and finally transforms the cigarette into a giant cigarette lighter!
