I was walking down the sidewalk today and I walked up to a middle aged man and asked him if I could show him something. He agreed, so I asked him if I could barrow a 1 dollar bill and that he could have it back after I was done. I began to perform Improv Nightshades from the Art Of Astonishment Books as a crowd began to gather. When I flipped up the shades they freaked out! He jerked the dollar from my hand and thats when I heard the most cursing in my life. Several Offered to pay me to tell them how It was done but I happily declined, gave the man his dollar, and walked away..... :D

1. It is in Volume One of The AOA
2. This version is made for 1 dollar american bills, i don't know if your could work around it with other currency. :D
You basically gave the secret with tip #2 that is why it is edited. fcchief.

Fcchief, whoops sorry if I inadvertantly was, wasn't meaning to...Well without giving anything away, cos I'm against revealing secrets, if anyone is familiar with Great British Pound bank notes could they tell me if they could be done with them? Thanks

It just has to be money with a face you can draw glasses on.
