(electronic music) – I remember my last year
of high school wondering what the hell am I gonna do with my life? None of the career choices
really resonated with me at all, I knew that I wanted to work with people, but never thought I’d
end up being a magician. I mean if you were going to tell me that I’d be traveling the world
connecting with people using a deck of cards
I’d think you were crazy. But here I am. (laughs) You can’t make this shit up. (electronic music) A card. A playing card. Any card. If you had to name one, yeah. Which one would you choose? – Seven. – Seven of? Clubs?
Hearts? Spades? Diamonds? – Spades. – Seven of spades? Okay. Give me a bag over
there, one of those brown bags. – These bags? – Yeah yeah. The brown bag. Can you open it up? – Open it? – Open the bag. (laughs) Thank you. She reacted really well too. (electronic music) See that deck there? See it? I’m gonna show you something really cool but see these are your cards. Any one at all. – This one? – Yep. Have a look at it, if you
don’t mind showing the camera. I won’t see it. Alright, put it right here. I’ll put the deck on the top. I’m going to cut it into the middle. This is your deck that I found here. Watch this if I snap my fingers. – What? – Like, you shit
yourself, let’s be honest. It’s this one right? – Oh my god. – Okay but hold on, hold on, it wasn’t blue when you chose it. Alright. Okay I’m gonna put the hat,
I’m gonna put the card down, I’ll put the hat over
it, I won’t touch it, I won’t go near it, alright. Just say stop whenever you
like, whenever you want. – Stop – Okay, have a look at this card. Got it? Remember it. So one card in here should now be blue, the card that you just
saw, that you just chose. All that was was a misdirection, because while I was doing this, now flip the hat and have a look at the card under there, flip the card. – What?!
– Oh my gosh. (laughs) What?
– Woah. – What just happened? (laughs) – That just made our day. – You guys are awesome,
that made my day too. (electronic music) – I can’t even speak right now. – Name any card out
loud, for the first time, whatever card you’re thinking of, just go ahead and name it out loud. – The nine of hearts. – The nine of hearts? You know what’s interesting Renada? Is that I left this
morning, I left the house, I had some change left
over from when I was like out and drinking and stuff, and I just grabbed it and
put it in my pocket alright, so like there’s nothing
in my hand here, look, let me go in and literally all the change I have is here, right? How much change is that? – 17 cents. – 17 cents right? Can you count 17 cards in my hand face up? 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 hold on. You said 17, well you said nine of hearts, and I had 17 cents
before I left the house, and legitimately that’s
all I have in my pocket. – Yes. – Turn the card over. (laughs) I don’t believe that children need magic. Because to some extent it’s real to them. Grownups however, have
developed an objective view of their reality there are
laws that they live by. So I believe it’s up to the magician to challenge those laws in a place that lingers between reality and fiction. Alright, I’m gonna ask you
to put these in your ear. I want you to think of your favorite song. Alright? I want you to think of your
favorite song right now. Let’s see if this works. – Holy shit. (laughs) – What are you hearing? – I hear Heroes by David Bowie. (laughing) – These are your headphones. – That was insane. Uh, yeah, wow. I don’t know what to say. That was (bleep) gnarly as (bleep). That was (bleep) insane. – Alright so I want you
to think of an actor. Got it? Are you also thinking of a movie? Oh so you are, okay. Um, let’s try getting a movie. Alright this is an older movie yes? And the actor is male? Yeah, like a broody actor kinda like, yeah a little bit. I get the feeling this guy’s
been in a lot of movies. – Yes. – Like a shit ton of movies. Um and the movie you’re thinking of is like a darker sort of movie, like a Tim Burton movie are you thinking of Edward Scissorhands with Johnny Depp? – Yes. (laughs) – Who works for Apple? Oh you work for Apple? This will be interesting
we’ll do this with you. Um, do you have your phone with you? – I do. – Alright this is the seven? – Uh, the 6s. – You work for Apple. Shame on you. – I like my 6s. – Alright I want you to think of the first number in your passcode, just think of the first number. Say it out loud in your head over and over again, like scream it out loud in your head. Can you take off your glasses? Say it in your head over and over again, first number only. This number also repeats
itself in your passcode. – Maybe, yeah it does. – You gave it away. – Did I? – Yeah it’s a three. It was subtle, but your face kind of moved there at three, so
I’m gonna go with three. Think of the second digit. – Okay.
– Alright. It’s really hard, it’s
like a nine or a zero, I’m gonna go with zero. And then you repeat the number, so it’s either the zero that repeats or the three that repeats,
I’m thinking it’s the three, so it’s either now, or the next number, I’m gonna go with now,
think of the last number, just think of it, that was quick. Three. – [Girl To The Left] Wow. – Now I gotta change my password. – ‘Cause everybody’s gonna see it, you might as well change it. That was pretty cool, thanks man. Thanks for your time. Name any card out loud right now, first card you think of name it, go. – Four of hearts. – Four of hearts? – Yeah. – Look, nothing. I want you to reach into my pocket. Take the card out. (laughs) I don’t have 52 pockets. Look, and there’s no other
card in all these pockets. Just name one, don’t look– – Two of hearts. – Two of hearts. Yeah, yeah. – Okay good. – Okay and one or two?
Just answer, one or two? – Two. – Two. So two of hearts, two? – Yes. – Alright pick out two cards. – So one, two.
– Two, right there. – What?! – Could you name a card? – Ace of spades. – Ace of spades. Alright, um, could you give me a number between zero and ten, just right off the top of your head? – Four. – Four. So here’s the idea, what I did with him is that he named two, you
named four and Ace of spades. What we’re gonna do is the same thing, if you hold your hand out. There’s one, make sure
it doesn’t fly away, two, three, four, see
it just kinda happens like that all the time it’s weird. People just get it, I
don’t know what it is, it’s just like a luck thing,
but it always works out for me. Which I’m kinda happy about. I hear about magicians that are worried about the future of magic. That somehow it will die
out through the internet, and exposure, but I believe
that it will force us to rethink what it is that
we do, and why we do it. Somehow weening out the
slackers and leaving only those who are truly
pursuing a greater magic. You say stop whenever. – Okay. – Right there? Okay I’m not gonna look at this card, I don’t want to see it, you see it? – Yeah I see it. – Okay I’m gonna take
it, and I’m gonna rip it. Okay? – Okay. – Now watch, watch. Okay, now look behind you on the window. – Oh my god. – Get a shot, get a shot of it. Look is it inside or outside the window? – It’s outside. – It’s outside? – Yes. – What? – Oh my god. – Is it the same piece? – It’s the same. – The same piece. – Oh my god, you are a great magician. – Thank you sir. Alright have a good day. – You too sir. – So I suppose that many believe
that magic is slowly dying. And that the golden age
of magic is behind us, and we’d all be happier being fooled by silk scarves and pulling
coins out of our ears, in a time where magicians
were thought to have powers, when no spectator would challenge us. But let me ask you. Where’s the fun in that? (smooth music playing)
hi magician rich Ferguson here today I’m going to teach you how to levitate small objects now have you ever taken a balloon and rubbed it on your hair and it’s gained that static charge which allows you to stick it to your clothing or maybe to a friend or to the wall that’s the principle behind this levitation I’m going to teach it to you in just a moment have you ever taken a package and unpackaged it and found those packaging peanuts and notice how sometimes a few of them kind of float around you sometimes you put your hand toward one and they jump onto you or maybe is repelled from you that’s because one of you has a positive charge typically you and one has a negative charge and what’s happening is he’s the materials are trying to find a balance so what you’re going to do with the dollar is use Alliance utilize a trick that involves a straw I’m going to teach you the trick with the straw first and then that’s going to allow you to actually levitate small objects between your hands so the trick is very simple you’re going to and I have this already prepared what you’re going to do is tear off the top piece of a straw that’s going to allow this whole bottom sleeve to slide easily like this it’s going to build up the static charge that’s necessary to charge your hands so I’m going to show you this when it come in close and show you exactly what you do and how this works this is going to be the test so you can see if you’ve got the right moisture in your hand and the right static charge built up in the straw so this is very simple just tear off one small piece of the paper lay it on your table hold the end that’s got the paper on it so you’re not touching the straw take the long piece slide it back and forth to build up the static charge pinch with this hand very firmly so you can slide off this paper fast now you’ve got yourself a rod that attracts the paper you can see it jumping right there it jumps up to the straws he needs standing straight up on its end right now but watch this if I hold it in my hand it will literally jump up if I try to get rid of it just won’t go there it goes sometimes it’ll actually jump down and then jump right back up again so this is the secret to how you levitate something between your hands what you’re going to do is use two straws now a lot has to come together the exact same time so what you’re going to do is prepare your two straws with just the ends separate from the long sleeve that’s going to allow you to bite down on the ends with your teeth not your lips you don’t want to get this wet then you’re gonna be able to use your free hand to slide both sleeves back and forth pull them off sharply and hard to get that static charge build up then you’re going to have two straws hanging on your mouth held by your teeth by the paper reach up with one hand on each grab the straws pull them away and that you’re going to dissipate that charge into your left and right hand hold the straws for just about three beats one two three drop them and leave your hands exactly the way they are do not touch them don’t touch the table don’t touch yourself you’re going to keep that subtle charge in your hands you are positively charged now then you’re going to reach down and you’re going to grab your dollar bill in a very specific way I’m going to zoom in and show you how you grab it it’s important that you have your bill sticking over the edge of a table so you can grab from the center area from the top and bottom with your fingertips like this it doesn’t matter what’s on top of what’s down below you do not want to grab the table you do not want to grab the edge of the bills you don’t want to make contact with anything else so from above and below just pinch the dollar okay now let’s put it all together hold the ends with your teeth drop the straws do absolutely nothing reach over grab your bill from above and below with just your fingertips and then slowly let go at the bottom and you’re going to have about five to ten seconds of static charge you can start to see it vibrating and now it’s dead so you can do real levitation with just static in your hand as you move around object key thing here is make sure you’re above and below the dollar bill if you’re using like packaging peanuts you can get to the side and kind of move one hand around and disturb the balance between the positive and negative charges but with the dollar bill which is by far the coolest thing you can do hold it from above and below like this let go with the top hand about three to four inches away and then mirror that with your bottom hand you don’t want to be like this and like this a fist and open hand very open very flat I prefer to go across with my fingertips and slowly bring up my fingers apart so everything is mirrored and you can keep that balance of that static charge once you figure out the trick share it with your friends and see if you can fool them too thanks for

– [Narrator] Making the
Statue of Liberty disappear is probably going to be beyond you. But that doesn’t mean you
can’t impress your friends with some less
resource-heavy magic tricks. These tricks include classics
like making a coin disappear or bending a paperclip with your mind. What’s more, most of them only
take a few minutes to learn. (puzzled music)
– Amazing. – [Narrator] Number 20,
turn paper into cash. Magic always looks more
impressive with fire. Of course, we always urge caution when adding anything
flame-related to a trick. For this one, you’ll need a
piece of paper, a fire lighter, and some cash. Hold the piece of paper in
your hand then set it on fire, flick your wrist and, hey presto. And in its place you have a 20-pound note. Here’s how it’s done. First, fold the bank note in
half three times as shown. Then hide it in the palm of your hand. Now, light the paper as normal. While the audience are
distracted by the flame all you have to do is push the bank note to the front of your thumb, simple. This trick works best when your audience doesn’t
know what you’re gonna do. Number 19, the levitating card trick. The levitating card trick is another very easy piece of magic. All you need is a pack of
cards and some fingers. Let’s hope you still have yours. Place your index finger on
top of the deck of cards, lift it up and using the
awesome powers of your mind, a card should follow suit. This card will always be the one placed at the back of the
deck and with good reason. To do the trick, simply
hold your pinky finger against the deck in the middle of the card while your index finger rests
against the top like shown. Raise your hand and the
card should move with it. Number 18, the disappearing crayons. Take box of crayons, hold it
out in front of the audience. Before their very eyes you’re
going to make the crayons inside the box disappear. Wave your hand over the crayons in a suitably theatrical
manner and suddenly, poof, the crayons are gone. To get the crayons back all you have to do is turn the box over and the crayons have magically reappeared. This is a little trickier than some of the tricks in this video and requires some basic
arts and crafts skills. You can’t do this trick
with any old box of crayons. The crayons are cut in half and glued to a few Popsicle sticks or whatever you have that suits as shown. When putting the crayons inside the box, hold your finger about halfway up the box to keep the crayons in place. When you want them to disappear, simply release the pressure on the box and the crayons will slip
to the bottom of the box. Once you turn the box
over, the crayons reappear. Number 17, disappearing coin trick. This is one of a host
of classic coin tricks you’ve probably seen a version
of dozens of times before. In this particular case, you’re gonna hold the coin in one hand, place your other hand over the coin, remove it and the coin is gone. Place your hand over the other hand again and what’s that? The coin is back but this
time in your other hand. As you might have guessed, this involves a little
bit of sleight of hand. Once you place your second hand over the one with the coin in it, simply place the coin in
between your index finger holding it there. Now, to make the coin reappear all you have to do is lift
it from your index finger and show it to your
hopefully astonished fans. Number 16, disappearing match trick. Next, we’re gonna make a match
or a toothpick disappear, whichever you have. This is another really simple trick that if carried out right
is really effective. Hold a match in your hand,
open your hand dramatically as if you’ve thrown the
match clear with your mind. Now, as if catching the
match from out of thin air close your hands and
boom, the match is back. Repeat this as many times as you like. It will amaze your audience every time. All you have to do is take the
match to your thumb as shown bend the top of your thumb downwards to put the match on display and simply straighten your
thumb to make it disappear. If you don’t happen to have tape on you, this can still be performed. All you need to do is lick
the back of your thumb between the knuckle and nail when the audience is distracted, and squeeze the match
against your thumb tightly. It should create some temporary adhesive so that it will hold long enough for you to at least
perform this trick once. Number 15, disappearing
coin trick off table. Some more coin trickery now. This time, we’re gonna
make a coin disappear through a table. First, place the coin on a flat surface, drop your hand over the coin and concentrating really, really hard, use all your magical abilities
to make that money vanish. while rubbing your palm back
and forth over the coin. What you’re really doing
by rubbing the coin is actually inching it slowly
to the edge of the table first with your palm and
then your wrist, as shown, where it will magically fall off and disappear onto the floor. It helps if you do this
trick in a carpeted room. Number 14, magic liquid
through a plastic cup trick. This is another trick that requires a little bit
of advanced preparation. Drop one plastic cup filled with liquid, preferably colored
liquid, into the other one and if your powers are
working at full capacity, the liquid from the first cup should magically appear in the second one as if the liquid is passed
right through the first cup. To do this trick, you actually
need three plastic cups. cut the bottom of the third cup and fill that with liquid
mixed with some food color. Place it on the bottom of the
second, completely empty cup. Making it look like
it’s filled with liquid drop this cup into the first one. The base from the third cup should fall off into the first cup and disappear into the liquid, making it look as if the liquid has passed from one cup to the other. Number 13, wine glass and coin trick. This is another perennial favorite in magicians the world over. You’re gonna take a wine
glass, put a cloth over it or simply place your hands around its top and slide it over a coin. The coin as if by magic will vanish. It is important for this trip to work that it occurs on colored paper. It is this paper that is
the secret to its success. Beforehand, you will have
cut out a circular piece of the colored paper and glued it to the top of the wine glass. So when you slide the glass over the coin, it looks like it has vanished when really it’s hidden
underneath the colored paper. Slide the glass away and
look, the coin is back. Number 12, signed card trick. We’ve been lied on card tricks thus far so let’s address that issue right now. For this trick, you’ll
need a deck of cards, a marker, and a see-through bag. Get your participant to pull
out a card from the deck and without showing it
to you sign the card and place it back in the deck. The cards will be placed into the see-through bag and sealed. Give the bag to your participant to hold with a born entertainer’s flourish, you’re going to pull their
signed card from out of the bag without actually damaging the plastic. Impossible, right? Well, obviously not. The trick here is to palm the card once the person is placed
in back into the deck. To do this, simply cut the pack of cards so that there is a break in it. Shifts the card so that the person’s
card is on top as shown. The card is then palmed as you misdirect the audience’s attention with the question like how
many cards are in the deck? Once the participant holds
the bag, you scratch your face and lick the back of the card which is then stuck to
the other side of the bag so it’s never actually inside the plastic. Once it comes time to
pull it out of the bag, all you have do is pull it
off the back of the bag. Make sure do it with a
little bit of style though. Number 11, breaking a
pencil with an index card. This is another really simple trick that you can do with a regular old pencil and an index card. What you’re gonna do is break
that pencil with the card. Get your delightful assistant
to hold the pencil tightly. Swipe down with the card and the pencil should break in two. Of course, you can
actually break the pencil with a piece of card but
what you’re actually doing is quickly straightening your
index finger as you swipe, and it’s this that does the damage. It could hurt a little but it’s all worth it
in the name of magic. Just make sure to apply
ample power to your swipe. Number 10, the torn corner card trick. So if you’re feeling a little hungry, here’s a trick that will astonish people and seemingly fill your stomach a little. Your assistant picks a card, you tear it a little at the corner. Then you bite it off, chew down
on the card and swallow it. Then go to your wallet
and look what’s inside, it’s the bit of the card
that you have just eaten. To pull this one off, you
need a duplicate card, so access to two decks. For best effect, use a picture card like the king of diamonds so you can tear both at identical places, say where the king’s crown stops. Take the tone piece of card
and put it in your wallet, then force the duplicate
card on your spectator. There are multiple ways you can do this. Now all you have to do is tear the card in the exact same way you
tore the previous one, you don’t actually have to
eat the piece of the king. Instead, simply tuck the
corner behind the card as shown as you bring it to your mouth. Set the card down so the corner is hidden. Then go to your wallet
and complete the trick. Number nine, bend a
paperclip with your mind. Bending a paperclip with your mind is not as difficult as it sounds. In fact, it’s remarkably easy and it requires surprisingly
little psychic abilities. Take a normal paperclip, flatten it out and then hold
it straight in front of you. This trick is all about perspective. The paperclip shouldn’t
be completely straight. However, when you hold it in front of you, it should look like it is. To bend it, simply roll
it ever so slightly between your fingers making it look like you’re bending the
paperclip with your mind when in reality, you’re
just rotating it a little. Number eight, magic chalk powder. For this, you’ll need some
chalk and an assistant’s hands, preferably attached to their body. Get your assistant to hold their hands out
in front of them facedown. Make sure to place them exactly
where you want them to be. Put some chalk on your
hand, rub it some more until the chalk has disappeared. Finish by blowing on your hand to magically transfer the chalk that was there into your helper’s hand. Now turn your assistant’s hands over and the chalk should have
magically jumped to their palm. The trick here is in the
placement of the assistance hands. Rub some chalk on your fingers
in advance of the trick. Once you reposition their hands, you’re also transferring
the chalk to their palm. Everything after this is mere showmanship. Number seven, disappearing coin trick. This is another twist on the
classic vanishing coin trick. For this variant, you
need a glass of water, a coin of course, and a piece of cloth. Put the coin under the cloth and then hold it over
the water tap at once, maybe twice for effect, remove the cloth and the coin is gone. What you need to do to
make this trick magic is hold a transparent coin replacement like the glass of a
watch face in your hand and swap it out for the coin before you actually place it
underneath the cloth like shown so when you let go of what
is supposed to be the coin, the transparent object
drops into the water completely unnoticed or
disappears as if by magic. Number six, disappearing ring. Ever wanted to make a ring
disappear, here’s how. Place the ring on your index finger. Wave your other magic hand in
front of it, the ring is gone. A second wave and it’s back again. All you have to do to
make this trick magic is simply swap fingers. When you wave your hand, you swap your index finger
for your middle finger and then swap them back again
to make the ring reappear. Who knew magic was so easy? Number five, magic slap card trick. Now we’re going back to card tricks. Get your assistant to
pick a card, any card, look at it and put it
back anywhere in the deck then give them the pack of cards. Now you’re going to slap the
cards out of the person’s hand until the only card that remains is incredibly the very card they picked. To do this, you have to
keep control of the card when it’s put back into the deck, ensuring that it winds up
at the bottom of the pack. Once it’s there, the rest
is fairly straightforward. Make sure they hold the deck
of cards relatively loosely and in this specific way as shown with their thumb and index finger. Once you select the pack of cards, they will naturally fall until
you are only left with one. It might require a little bit of practice to know exactly how hard to hit the cards. Number four, anti-gravity ring. Now we’re gonna do something really cool. We’re gonna make a ring defy gravity. Take a piece of elastic, break it and threaded through the ring. Hold it in an angle like so and using all the power of your mind, make that ring go up. It’s actually a pretty
easy trick to pull off. Hold one end of the elastic at its edge while with the other end, you’re actually going to leave
quite a bit of the elastic resting in your palm. Then stretch the elastic so it looks like it’s at its full length. Now all you’re gonna do is
pull the elastic upwards, releasing it slowly to make it look like the
ring is defying gravity. Number three, levitating money trick. With this trick, it appears that all you’re
doing is taking a standard note and folding it. Then for added suspense, the note is balanced
between both your thumbs and ever so slowly, it is
less suspended in the air. The illusion makes it seem like the note is levitating on its own, but obviously it isn’t. The note is then unwrapped and inspected. This trick is super simple. All you have to do is take a coin and hide it in your palm. As you take the note to start folding it simply slide the coin behind it and fold the note over the coin. Now all you have to do is
slowly balance it on your thumb. Once you’re done levitating the bill, flip it upside down and release
the pressure on the coin so that the coin falls
back into your hand. Number two, disappearing foil coin trick. This is a delightfully simple trick that looks wonderful if
pulled off correctly. Take a coin and a piece of paper. Place the coin inside the piece of paper and then nice and slowly
fold the paper over until it is nothing more than
a scrunched up piece of paper. Did the coin disappear? Well, the truth, as ever,
is a little more prosaic. There never was a coin to begin with. What you do is take some tin foil and to make an impression of the coin. In the U.S., a quarter will work. For British magicians, you’ll probably want to use the 10p coin. Trim around the edge of
the foil with scissors so you have a foil quarter. At a distance, it should be really hard to tell the difference between
the real and fake coin. From here, the rest is simple. Number one, torn and
restored dollar bill trick. Now, we’re gonna destroy some money. Well, not really. Take a note, tear it
straight down the middle, then do it again and again. So you now have half a
dozen or so torn pieces, rub the bits together until
eventually the bill is restored. So how is it done? All you need are two of the
same denominations of note and some glue or rubber cement. Super glue might ruin your notes, make them un-spendable. Fold one of the bills in half and line it up with the back
of the other bill as shown. Run some rubber cement around
the outer edge of the bill just the outer edge. The second bill goes on top. Press it into place
with two flaps as shown. Now you could start tearing the first bill from just about where the fold is. Tear it some more to
make sure your audience are convinced you have torn the money. Slide the tone pieces
into the pocket created when you glued the two notes together. Start rubbing, which is really you just moving the pieces into the pocket. Maneuver the bill into a Z shape. Showing the slide that hasn’t been glued, straighten the note with a flourish. You can even show them the other side being careful to hold
the note in such a way as to hide the crease. There you go, 20 tricks to

a little bit more about Stuart before we bring him up. Down here we have
Alan, Sue and Brenda. OK. Now, Brenda, you’re Stuart’s
grandmother, is that right? Yes. Have you come from Manchester?
Yes. Are you excited? Oh, I am. Nervous? Apparently, you’ve come to this very
theatre with Stuart, is that right? Yes, yes. What did you come to see? 42nd Street. And did Stuart enjoy
the performance? He said, “I’ve always wanted
to sing on this stage, “and it would be a dream for me.” Oh, God. That is wonderful.
You’ve heard him sing before? Oh, yes, yes.
And how did that start, Mum? He started when he was about
18 year old in our local pub. Right. Singing away in karaoke, but
he was working in the pub as well, and the landlady said, “I’d like you
to do a show in the pub,” and it just excelled from there. You’re much more northern than Nan. What’s happened, Nan? Have you been watching too much
Downton Abbey, Nan? What’s happened? POSH ACCENT: “I came with Stuart
to this theatre several times “to watch 42nd Street.” What about you, Mum? EXAGGERATED NORTHERN ACCENT:
“Well, he did karaoke when he were
about 18. “And from then, it just
blossomed, you know.” So, how do you think
he’s going to react, Nan? He will definitely
be surprised, believe me. Well, thank you so, so,
so much for nominating him. Brenda, Sue and Alan!
There we are. It’s Stuart’s family. OK. So, here is the aeroplane. I know this doesn’t look very much
like an aeroplane at the moment from the outside, but wait till
you see what it’s like inside. So, I’m going to show
you inside now. So, here we go. Can you see me? Amazing! OK. All right. What’s going to happen
is that Stuart is having his talk outside,
he’s going to be walked through. They’re going to tell him
that they are taking him through to this simulator to test
turbulence in an actual fuselage of an aeroplane. So we go… You won’t even believe this. So, in we go,
through into the actual plane. Just check this out. So this is an actual plane
and everything is as you would hope. This is where Stuart’s going to sit. He will strap up, awaiting
the turbulence, which will never come
because this will collapse. So, here we go. You’ve probably all been
in this situation before. There’s always a little trouble
as to find which is your seat belt. Various seat belts. Then I normally have
to go all the way. I don’t know about you. I will take this
to its absolute maximum. Give me a little bit of room. That pops in there,
nice and relaxed. And then rude people,
as soon as the sign’s off, they will immediately recline. You know who you are. As soon as the sign’s off,
they will just go, “Right, that’s me.” But just so you know,
the person sitting behind you is staring at the back of your head,
complaining to the whole row, “Look at this guy,
look at this rude recliner.” Because the more polite of us –
and you also know who you are and I count myself among them –
you do it in increments. Just every sort of ten minutes,
slowly, just a little bit… And then there you are,
after 40 to 50 minutes, they’re behind you going,
“How the hell did you do that?” Yes, that’s the idea,
slow incremental reclining. Then you’ve got your blanket,
if it gets chilly, shoes tend to go off.
Always a little bit embarrassing. So, they always say, “Leave your
seat belt on,” don’t they? They say, “Leave it on
in case of turbulence,” so you have to leave your seat belt
on, then the blanket goes there, then you try and sleep,
but then sometimes the stewardess… There’s turbulence,
the stewardess comes around, she says, “Excuse me, sir,
is your seat belt on?” And it’s a very awkward moment
when you have to lift and direct her… “Yes.” A very awkward moment
I’m sure we’ve all been through. So, you’ve got all the things here,
the armrests move, the tray comes down,
we’ve even got food here, which we can go through,
which is absolutely revolting. The hardest… The hardest bread you will ever get
in the world. And then, of course,
they come down and go, “Would you like the
chicken or the fish? “Chicken or the fish, sir?
We’ve got chicken or fish.” Then you go, “Oh, I think
I’ll have the chicken.” They go, “We’re out of chicken.” “All right.
Thanks for offering the chicken.” So, as you all know, for takeoff,
they always tell you to put the blind up. Sometimes you’re about to take off,
everything’s fine, and they go, “Excuse me, sir.
Could you just pop your blind up? “We need all the blinds up
for takeoff.” Really? This blind is linked
to the engine of the plane, is it? Is the captain up there going,
“Something seems to be wrong, “have you checked all the blinds?
Have you checked all the blinds? “32B, check with 32B. “Whoa, that’s better! “Close one!” All right.
So, this is where he’ll come… Ah, seat belt’s on. That’s another thing that happens. When it ends, when the plane… Because it’s a race, isn’t it,
to get off the plane? It’s a race. You pretend you’re not racing,
don’t you? You look around, as soon as
you get there, looking around. They always go, “Welcome to such and
such. We’ve arrived. “Please wait for the
seat belt sign to go off.” But everybody is waiting. They might as well say, “On your marks, get set… “go!” So, that is it. That is our incredibly
accurate plane. So, this is our arrivals board. And in it, we can hopefully
see the room next door. So, there’s Stuart there,
chatting away. Oh, he’s very good at passing
that board to the next pilot. You know, there’s only
two pilots to fly a plane. We need three to give this course
for six people. So, that is the talk
going on at the moment… ALL: Turbulence is uncomfortable,
but not dangerous. Close your eyes, everybody. Say it again. Don’t look. ALL: Turbulence is uncomfortable,
but not dangerous. In that room, we have some actors,
of course, because none of this is real, and I can actually
communicate with those actors and we’ll see how Stuart reacts. So, this lady is called Donna
and I’m going to ask Donna… Donna, if you can hear me,
make a noise like an airport announcement and say, “Captain Stuart,
Donna has a question.” Bing bong! Captain Stuart,
Donna has a question. Yes, Donna? Go ahead. I’ve just backed up my computer
to the Cloud. So I’ve just backed up my
computer to the Cloud. If you fly through it,
will everyone see my personal data? If you fly through it,
will everyone see my personal data? No, I think it’s just a… It’s like a pseudo kind of thing,
isn’t it, the Cloud? It’s just to say it’s up there.
I’m not quite sure. Just say, “Can I have your number,
just in case I think “of any questions later?” Can I get your number? So if I have any questions later,
I can just… As long as they’re flying related. OK. Just go, “Bing bong,
no further questions.” Bing bong! No further questions. OK. Now, ladies and gentlemen,
outside this fear of flying course, we have Graham,
the very nervous flyer. Head on in, Graham. Just say, “I’m sorry I’m late.” I’m sorry I’m late. “I couldn’t find a place to park.” I couldn’t find a place to park.
“So I’ve been circling “for half an hour.”
I’ve been circling for half an hour. Where did you get your outfit? I’m very, very nervous.
I got all this on eBay. Do you want to get a drink? Do you want some water? “Can I get ice and a slice, please?” Yes, please.
An ice and a slice, please. Could you move up a bit?
I need to sit on the aisle. Put your case up. Don’t worry.
You haven’t missed much. All right, sit down.
Do your belt up. Are you all right? Just take a minute and relax. OK, all right. OK, so we were talking
about jet streams… Graham, could you just say,
“Where are the emergency exits?” Where are the emergency exits? Behind you. Donna, can you say,
“Under what circumstances “would you need a life jacket?” Under what circumstances
would you need a life jacket? If we are in a ditching scenario… “What is ditching?” What’s ditching? It’s called ditching
where we have to prepare the aircraft for a landing on water. But what if there’s no water? Then we don’t need life jackets. Graham, say,
“Is ditching an emergency?” Is ditching…? Is it an emergency? Yes. OK. Inflate your life jacket. LAUGHTER, CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It works! Graham, say, “Sorry, I didn’t know
it was going to do that.” Sorry, I didn’t know
it was going to do that. I think we took that as far
as it could go. OK. Let’s bring him up. Two, three, four. And in two, three, four… Sorry…
I’ve got the plane up and running. Oh, great. Who can I grab, just to
have a look at the service levels? We’ll keep Steve because
the next bit’s really important. Stu, would you mind doing that?
Yeah. Just check it out for us, yeah. Sorry to disturb. OK. Here we go. Great… The next time we see
Stuart, he’ll be with us. And then the guys have just
been doing it all day today, getting it all up and running. Have a look at this.
What do you think? What is it in? A vehicle? It’s in a massive warehouse,
so this is just a little bit. So, I just want to check
the settings, the turbulence. If you just want to sit
in there for me… That’s amazing, isn’t it? Yeah. Put your seat belt on, because I
just want to set the levels. Fantastic. Yeah. Very good. I’ll be back
in one minute. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Hello, Stu! How are you?
We’re all here for you. Come on, Stu! Ladies and gentlemen,
it’s Stuart Beech! There’s your mum and your dad. There’s Nan! Unbelievable. Stuart… Yes?
..you seem very much in shock. This… I am in shock.
..is Michael McIntyre’s Big Show. You are here because you’ve
been nominated by your family. You are not here for
a fear of flying course. Hello! You have no idea where
you are right now, do you? You have been in
this theatre before. It’s the Palladium, isn’t it?
It is not the Palladium. The Lyceum, I mean. No, it’s not the Lyceum.
Keep going. Various London… We are in central London,
you know that. You came here with Brenda, your nan. Oh, it’s Theatre Royal.
It is. You’re in the Theatre Royal. Amazing. Yeah! You are standing on the stage.
Yes. Now, you’ve dreamed of
standing on the stage. Yes. Well, your family think
you’re an amazing singer, you are here to be
the Unexpected Star… Good lord. ..of tonight’s show. You have until the end of the show,
we are going to take you backstage, we’ve got a whole huge performance
that’s set up for you. Wow. You’re going to close
tonight’s show. This will be not only for the
2,500 people here tonight, but the millions
watching at home. But… Right. ..you must know that
each and every one of us here are so behind you
and willing you to do well. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It’s a pleasure to meet you.
Oh, you’re very sweet. OK. So, I have to ask
you if you will be our Unexpected Star of tonight’s show. It would be an honour. Yes. Oh, very, very sweet. OK. So, if you’d like to come over here,
this is actually your outfit for later. I’ve got you a few
toiletries, so if you take that. Also, of course, everybody
in the room you were just in, you can see there,
they are all, of course, actors, none of those people are real. So, as you’ve forced us
so many times to do it, will you perform the most
unnecessary of all walks and please slowly make your way
all the way, and someone will meet you? Ladies and gentlemen, it’s our
Unexpected Star of tonight’s show, Stuart Beech! Thank you so, so much. Off you go. TANNOY: Stuart Beech
to rehearsal room, Stuart Beech to rehearsal room. Final call for Stuart Beech. Please report to rehearsal room. Final call for Stuart Beech. Thank you, thank you, thank you. That was brilliant. Ladies and gentlemen,
please welcome our Unexpected Star of tonight’s show,
it’s Stuart. # To dream the impossible dream # To fight the unbeatable foe # To bear with unbearable sorrow # And to run where the brave
dare not go # This is my quest # To follow that star # No matter how hopeless # No matter how far # To fight for the right # Without question or pause # To be willing to march into hell
for a heavenly cause # And I know # That I’ll always be true # In this glorious quest # And the world # Will be better than this # That one man # Scorned and covered with scars # Still strove # With his last ounce of courage # And to reach # The unreachable # The unreachable # The unreachable # Star # And I only dream # The impossible dream # And, yes, I will reach # The unreachable # Star. # Thank you very much.

– Come here. Come here. [HIGH ENERGY MUSIC ]
Hi, I’m Jay from Real Street Performance. Today, we’re going to talk about engine sleeves, what different types there are, and why you may want them. So there are 4 common reasons that you would move into an aftermarket sleeve. Power level of the engine. The bore size needed for your build. A material constraint with the factory style sleeve and the aftermarket piston you’re trying to use. Or you damaged the cylinder and you need to replace the sleeve. In the realm of power level, the factory was considering the best balance between heat mitigation and cylinder sealing. They weren’t really considered about what happened to the engine when you doubled or tripled the power level. An aftermarket sleeve is a thicker build of material and the alloy loans itself to keeping shape under elevated combustion. So as you raise the power level with an aftermarket sleeve, the cylinder will stay round. And when you raise the power level with a factory sleeve the cylinder can distort or crack. During the rebuild process, you may want to go to a bigger piston to increase the displacement. Or you have to go to a bigger piston to get the right bore finish back on the cylinder wall for good sealing. Either way the factory block has the limitation of how big it can get before the liner gets too thin. In these types of scenarios, you move to an aftermarket sleeve. There are a handful of engines that don’t work well with the common 2618 aftermarket piston. These engines choose nikasil or FRM bore and the makeup of that bore and the make up of a common forged piston don’t react well. This puts you in a situation where you’re going to sleeve the block. Another reason for going into an aftermarket sleeve is you damaged the cylinder. It’s cracked, or you’ve dropped a valve, or broke a rod and that cylinder no longer has the ability to be fixed. And you have to put an aftermarket sleeve in to use that engine block again. So regardless of the manufacturer there are 2 different types of sleeves. There’s a wet sleeve and a dry sleeve. A wet sleeve, the factory cylinder is totally removed and this sits in its place. So now the water of the engine is directly against the sleeve. A dry sleeve is going to fit inside the factory cylinder. So the factory cylinder stays intact. You bore it out, and you press this in. It’s worth noting that there are a few advantages with a Darton MID sleeve. These sleeves are installed with an o-ring at the bottom. So the sleeve can be removed if needed. If you have a situation where the sleeves are epoxied in. There’s a couple things that are presented. It’s hard to get the sleeve out. So if you drop a valve, and you want to service the engine, getting the sleeve out if it’s epoxied in is going to be a pretty large task. The other thing is when you bolt the head on this, it’s kind of floating in those o-rings. There’s nothing that’s unnaturally loaded in the block. So you have less tendency to develop cracks. This is not a new design. They’ve been doing this in the diesel community for a long, long time. You would just pull the sleeve out when it’s reached its service life, and put another sleeve in. It also locates on the other cylinders in the block which offers some rigidity in the deck area. So overall, this is a pretty nice product. It also does a good job of keeping shape under stress, and has a good memory. This alloy has a good memory to return to size. If you’ve got the engine hot or if you’re overusing it, It’s pretty forgiving material. There are 2 different types of dry sleeves. One is a flanged performance-oriented sleeve and the other one is a non flanged rebuilder style sleeve. So if you’re in a situation where you just need to get back on the road, it’s not something that you’re going to triple or quadruple the horsepower of the engine, you can use the regular service sleeve on. If it’s a performance application, you’re going to use the flanged sleeve. While there are a lot of machine shops that can do this procedure correctly, you should understand that this is not something. that’s very simple. And it’s easy to screw up. Make sure that you’re dealing with a machine shop that has done a lot of this work. And they’re very comfortable doing this work. If you make a mistake during the process, the engine block will end up in the garbage. And you’re going to be out quite a bit of money. So make sure that the machine shop that you pick to do this is capable and comfortable sleeving your block. So in closing, I hope you come away with this with some information that will help you understand what the sleeving process is. What sleeves you should purchase. If there’s something that I covered in here that you still have questions about, you can ask in the comments or email me directly. Thanks. Have a good week
