Jack Merlin was an American card manipulator that performed in vaudville.

Jack lived for a while in Indianapolis. His wife assisted him in the act in the manner of a spectator (picking cards and showing them to the audience).

Merlin always opened his act with the penetration of a glass of water through a derby hat and closed with cards across from C. Lang Neil's book The Modern Conjuror.

He died some time prior to 1966.
