Rob Ellinger has a pleasing manner and has no trouble establishing rapport with his audience, which is good as he relies on their involvement in most of his tricks. These mostly straight card tricks will not stop the world but they do keep you watching closely for the entire time.

Of particular interest was the trick that ended with the entire pack inside a balloon and the extended version of the three cups trick, very well done!

There is not much more I can tell you without naming his tricks and that’s boring: much more interesting to get along and see them for yourself, enjoy a drink in pleasant surroundings and let Rob amuse you.
