LEFTY is the bumbling sidekick stagehand in MURRAY ‘Celebrity Magician’ at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino. For most of the show you think he really is JUST a stagehand… until he picks up one card off the ground and you realize he’s been fooling you all along… he is Douglas Leferovich, a World Champion Card Manipulator!

Murray leaves LEFTY alone on the stage to clean up in the middle of his show. Lefty sweeps with his signature broom… and finds one card on the floor. He plays with it and actually vanishes it, shocking himself!
Then he makes it reappear… to the crowds adoring applause! He’s HOOKED and MURRAY isn’t coming back!
LEFTY flips his garbage can over and starts doing various flourishes with cards he makes appear out of NOWHERE!
He riffles the deck and produces fan after fan of cards…
Then he starts shooting cards 6 – 10 feet away across the room to audience members in the back of the 300 seat room!
Cards even come flowing magically out of his mouth!
LEFTY fans the cards and SHRINKS them over and over again, comparing them to his regular sized card each time… until they vanish completely!
Then he blows the audience away by multiplying the cards with pure manipulation throughout his fingers, creating two big finger fans for his finale and before MURRAY finds him playing around on stage!
Definitely one of MURRAY’s secret weapons in the show! Something you’d never expect but will never forget! LEFTY!
