A Quick, Quirky, Corky Trick

By Tom Interval

When I was about 14 or 15, my father, Jerry Interval (1923–2006), taught me an amusing, if not amazing, little trick with two corks. I’m not 100 percent sure who taught it to him, but I suspect it was Pittsburgh magician Jack Gottlob (pronounced “got-lobe”), whom I met once in my father’s photography studio but haven’t seen or spoken to since. Memories fade, but I recall Jack being a super-nice guy. He gave or sold my father an old five-volume set of the Tarbell Course in Magic, and he spoke with me for a while about our fine craft. I put together a short video tutorial of the cork trick. If you like to learn easy tricks, it doesn’t get much easier than this. You can preview the tutorial below or directly on YouTube and watch the full video on my Patreon or new Rokfin page.
