A spectator signs a freely selected card and draws a mouse on its face. She shuffles the cards, while you present the mousetrap. You place the armed trap on her outstretched hand, and stroking one card at a time over the trap, you wait for the trap to go off. Of course, the card that is caught is the signed card with the mouse drawing! Use your own deck and pen.
Comedy, Suspense, Audience Participation. Happens
in their hands. Can be done close-up, stand-up or on stage. Packs
small - plays big. A very,
very commercial routine. And sooo easy to do.
You can also lay the trap on the table, and no fingers will get caught! Not as much fun, though.
Provide your own trap

I use it in all my close up shows. It has to be one of the most commercial tricks I have come across in recent years, and I congratulate you on coming up with the idea. It's a winner! Once again, thanks for a tremendous trick. It's GGGGGRRRRREEEEEAAAAATTTTT.

The only thing more outstanding than Jarle's effects is the level of customer service he offers, which is second to none.
Jarle must have performed this effect thousands of
times and it shows. He tells you pretty much everything you need to know
and gives you the nuances that make the trick work best. He even tells
you what kind of spectators to pick and how to tell if they are
right-handed or left-handed... necessary information if you plan to use
the control Jarle describes and have the deck shuffled by the spectator.
There are also lots of additional performance ideas provided at the end
of the booklet to stimulate developing your own presentation.
