Re: any ideas for a darkish jester character (tricks & stunt

So there Sammy.
You have enough ideas to both fill a book and provide material for a dozen dark Jesters.

Re: any ideas for a darkish jester character (tricks & stunt

There is the old effect--Poison/Acid. 4 glasses --one contains poison/acid--usually coloured water. All covered.Mixed up. One by one they are eliminated with the spectator or magician drinking from the eliminated ones. Sometimes bottles are used. Finally the one that is left is the poison/acid. Much...

Re: Doing magic with cold hands

AND there are gloves available, worked on one battery in a pocket on each hand hat warm the hands--via hidden wires.
I used to wear them walking the dog in very cold weather.

Re: Doing magic with cold hands

Prior to the Show always wear gloves and invest in two of the simple handwarmers available.

Re: Anyone else miss Abracadabra magazine?

YES Magic Fan. I miss it like mad. Just enough each week to take in the details..bits of History, tricks, useful articles, Society Reports (so we know what the others are doing) and the adverts. The big glossies are equally wonderful but it takes a very long time to absorb their contents. The last 4...

Re: any ideas for a darkish jester character (tricks & stunt

1. Swallowing Needles OR perhaps better Razor Blades--as kids cannot get hold of the old fashioned flat blades. 2. Flames On The Finger Tips. or on Hands 3. Floating Skull a la Zombie or the Floating Ball. 4. Egg Bag with Witch's small Hat 5. D'Lites should be able to be fitted in somewhere. 6. Fake...

Re: Large Sponge Loads

Another idea Stacy, is at the end of Aldo Columbini's 'Throw In The Sponges', used when I did Close Up. Part of this routine involves a half sponge ball so when they guess I have 2 in my hand --it is 1 and a 1/2. For his ending, Aldo used a very large metal nut--the type you screw on something..his ...

Re: Large Sponge Loads

Your best and most effective ending, Stacy, is the Shower of Sponge Balls. When you open your hand at the end of the routine, many small (I use 1 inch) sponge balls shower from it all over the Stage or Cabaret floor or with slightly less than the normal 20+ sponge balls, all over the table. The late...

Re: Brick in a bag

There was Malini's Brick from a hat. I think it is in the Malini Book by Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon.. Alas the book is now in Portugal. I did my own version,once with a paper ball vanishing and kept re-appearing under the hat. It involved at one point dropping the hat on the floor right by the fr...

Re: tubes of kuma

If you have the means to backtrack though the Paul Daniels Shows--he did perform it. The only comedy you can add is , surely is: Getting the Tubes stuck in each other; pushing your arm through one and getting your arm 'stuck'; Also on your head (all this depends on you and your style of comedy) and ...
