Rick Smith Famous Magician
Seen on the Shark Tank Show
 Rick Smith, Jr. is a Professional Magician and Guinness World Record Holder for distance playing card throwing. In March 2002, Rick threw a playing card an incredible 216 feet at a whopping 92 miles per hour. With his speed and pin point accuracy, Smith can easily slice threw just about any fruit or vegetable including a watermelon rind at some amazing distances. Rick Smith already had appearances on The Ellen Show and Americas Got Talent to name a few, before he made his appearance on the Shark Tank Show.

Rick came into the Shark Tank looking for a $1.5 million dollar investment for a 20% equity stake in his Magic Show he wants to open in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is currently based out of Cleveland, Ohio where he has been honing his skill's mostly at corporate functions, and of course on various T.V. Shows where he has been getting a lot of very good publicity.With the Sharks investment, Rick can open up a family friendly magic show that he is sure will bring in at least $12 million a year in revenue.

The Sharks loved Rick's card throwing demonstration when he convinced Mark Cuban to be his Ginny pig while he easily sliced threw his target. You wouldn't think a regular ole playing card could be so dangerous, but in Rick Smith Jr's. hand's I think the appropriate word might be lethal.

He had a great plan to start a new magic show in Las Vegas and definitely the talent, but it would be a very expensive proposition without the Sharks (or any Angel Investor) help to financially put this deal together. Unfortunately putting such a high valuation of $7.5 million without an actual Magic Show already in Las Vegas kind of dampened the Sharks investing spirits on taking this risk. No Deal was struck inside the Shark Tank.

Well it does not look like Rick got his magic Show in Las Vegas, at least not yet. He's still young and if he keeps getting as much publicity as he's been getting, it's only a matter of time before Smith will command the biggest stages on the strip.His resume is filled with Corporate functions where they all give his magic show fantastic reviews. It really is something to watch and I very much would like to see this in person. It's just one of those things you have to see with your own eyes.

What is possible when throwing a playing card? A lot more then I myself could of ever imagined. Check this video out when Rick appeared on "America's Got Talent" for a small demonstration.
