Hi there

I'm not particularly interested in performing in restaurants, but I am interested somewhat in the cups and balls. I read that R Paul Wilson's The Restaurant Act DVD contains a segment about performing a cup routine, including loading fruit into your act.

Can anyone give me a bit more information about this? Would it be worth me buying this DVD?

Many thanks :)

also daryl's fooler doolers vol 1 has a pretty decent cups and balls with a potato and tomoato loading I believe.
this routine uses a cup a dollar bill and a knife, its pretty good.

Paul Wilson's is a chop cup routine (examinably gimmicked 1 cup and balls effect) and is worth looking in to. Even if you have no interest in performing in restaurants, the way he structures his routine to be completely resetting is something to work for.

I have this tape and it is pretty good and he is a great teacher.

My immediate question though was, "How can he do the same routine over and over all night, and week after week at the same restaurant?"

To assume that other tables around the one being performed at will not watch, nor see a good part of the routine is to be in fantasy land.

The next table he goes up to has to know what is coming as they just saw it!
