Mental Epic------I close ALL shows with this one...(except if the clients are under 10)

Cut and restored Rope with Hot knot opener....

Zombie Ball

Tricky Bottles

Hippity hoppity Rabbits

Stratosphere

Goldfish routine

Dove Pan=Candy

Vanishing Bandana with floating instructions.....uses NSA

I also do a routine where I make an audience member a magician using a costume and I put my hands through the arms also use a female assistant. Cost me $12 to make from stuff at Good Will....

I force two cards make them disappear using a change bag and then pull out 1st card only larger show bag empty pull out the other. (Other than the card I use for Mental Epic.

I also have a variation of the square circle that is all round

I have various size boxes for appearing and disappearing the things I use or need in my show...

Andrew Maines Bowling Ball, Spike through tongue and the effect of sticking umbrellas through his head...

I also do a routine that includes 3 spectators where two of them cut the
other in half using 2 lengths of rope

Red white and Blue ropes

Silk tube to juggling
or
Box of appearing oranges for juggling (to the song oranges by They Might Be Giants)


I always take more than I can perform in case something goes wrong. And as always I do what is appropriate for my audience. I don't do self puncture tricks at kids shows and don't do rabbits, Stratosphere or dove pan at more adult shows......A mixed bag show could get any combination of these......The key to ALL of these is PRESENTATION.....whether it's patter or music choice.....Entertainment is what people want I may not be the best Zombie handler but my presentation and music choice get more comments and they come out remembering that one or Mental Epic....

Just My Humble opinion all replies welcome......

Some good effects, here is my list

Strat-O-Sphere
Hippity Hop Rabbits
Sucker Die Box
Soft Soap
20th Century silks using and "empty box" I made (Thanks GeorgeM!)
Various silk routines with Change Bag
Cut and restored (Duane Laflins version)
Linking Ropes
18" rope to silk

Of course this could vary with some other effects with silks or other objects. Then again I have my favorite close ups, but that is another forum! 8)

Chewing Razors onto thread is always a fave of mine. Vanishing bottle is a killer trick, and anything that involves sticking sharp pointy things in people is always good. (Sword thru body, Murder Inc. - our version) Also balloon swallowing always gets a reaction.
