Is anyone using Dante's Ropetrick? I use it all the time in my kids show! I don't think Penguin supply it but the trick is really funny. A 10 minutes act. :P

Are you talking about Dante's favorite rope trick? If so, it is called the lazy magician and it requires two assistants that do all the work while the magician sits in a chair, waves a wand, and then takes the credit. The trick is not 10 minutes long, however it is quite funny. I use it in my stage shows when I have assistants available and I use some old timey snazzy music in the background. I do it as a tribute to John Calvert who used to do it as a tribute to Dante. When Dante would do the trick, he would sit in the chair, tap his foot to music and puff on a cigar as he tied about a dozen silks to two ropes that assistants walked back and forth holding. The ropes had a wand tied in the middle that he later grabbed and waved. After waving the wands Dante would jerk the ropes and all of the silks fell to the floor. THen, Harry Janson A.K.A. "Dante" would finally get out of the chair and walk forward for the applause.

I love the trick because it gets good laughs, it involves music, it makes the magician look professional through having hard working assistants, it packs flat and plays big, plus it is a great trick.
