Apparently, there's a stage production in NYC that features an actor, Steve Cuiffo, performing card tricks onstage.

The production is "Major Bang: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dirty Bomb," playing at St. Anne's Warehouse in Brooklyn.

According to the article: "[Steve] Cuiffo agreed to appear and also perform magic tricks (one of his sidelines) in the production....Maggie Hoffman...chatters about her morning subway ride while Mr. Cuiffo does card tricks. Just as the auience is sinking into a mood of relaxed expctancy, Ms. Hoffman mentions that during her commute, her train screeched to a halt, because an unattended bag had been found that was suspected to contain explosives. A red backpack magically pops up onstage. Ms. Hoffman unzips the bag; there is an explosion...."
