The spectators' eyes may well follow your hands which should rise away from the table. Maintain this position for a moment; then, with the right forefinger, point to the single card remaining on the table, saying, "Over here!" The Six is indeed in view, where the Joker had been.
By way of denouement, spread the packet face-down on the table, concluding, "And here is where the Joker comes in!" The Joker will appear face-up, presumably having changed places with the Six. The extra Joker, meanwhile, is face-down, and thus indistinguishable from the remaining cards.
Note: You may find it necessary to moisten the right second-fingertip just after the first climax and before moving into The Future Spread.
