Someone asked me via email about what routines I do. I figure I'd share it with everyone.
What I perform usually changes with every gig. It depends on the type of show that I'm doing. Here is what I did at the last show. It was a parlor setup with about 30 people watching. There were kids all the way to adults. This is what I did.
Magic Coloring Book
Quit While you are ahead (Svengali Deck Routine)
Card to Ceiling with a signed card from the Svengali deck (Not the force card. This keeps me from needing a deck swith too early)
Hold It Buster
Cups and Balls
Card to Pocket
Then a 10-15 minute break.
Healed and sealed
The Cursed Gypsy (Basically the Color Monte with 3 tarot cards from a Paul Wislon Video)
Professors nightmare (rope)
Vanishing and appearing knots (rope)
Color Deception Brass
Insurance Policy (easy card trick that is a blast)
Vanishing Bandana (I usually close with this)
Circle Square (I closed with this to had out candy to the kids.)
The whole show was about 50 minutes to an hour...too long for the kids. But they were well behaved. If they weren't I would have skipped the break and ditched everything after it except Healed and Sealed, Vanishing Bandana and Circle/Square.
I usually don't start with the floating rose, but thought I'd give it a whirl especially as I was paid a little extra to do a "floating type trick"
