Ok i work at a restaurant in my small town of East Aurora, Ny

ive come up with this routine and i would like peoples opinions on what they think about it.

seed money (from anytime anywhere by Jay sankey.. i remade the effect using the same principle but adding some of my own stuff to fit the routine) :arrow: Ice Coins :arrow: A coin change from four half dollars to quarters :arrow: Where they choose one of the four quarters examine it and i perform spun (or the closer? i cant decide i think spun would be over kill but a nice touch)

hows this sound?

The tricks are not important. The performance is. A trained monkey can do tricks, but it takes a magician to make them entertaining.

thankyou paddy it takes a magician to put on a good show with some tricks anyone can make a quarter or ring dissapear but how you present the trick is what gets the reactions. Yes i did make this routine flow trick wise but that makes it easier to make a killer presentation for. I did not include my entie presentation because i want to encourage others to come up with their own in stead of copying.

On the contrary I think seeing a monkey do a magic trick would be very entertaining! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Monkeys in general are entertaining, a better analogy would be "any female can do tricks"....

Oh boy im gonna get yelled at.. i didnt mean it im sorry!

I have seen female magicians that make most male proffesional magicians look amateurish at best.

Fantastic looking routine, mainly because it uses one of sankeys effects.(I am a very big fan of Jay) Anyway for your closer I personally would use spun but after doing some expirementing you should be able to decide on your own.

coin magic is not my favorite, but i recommend you keep spun because it is after all A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. when performed right, and maybe switch 1 of the other 2 or also perform the magic coin box (you can buy one on penguin by s.s. adams in case you don't already own one :) a.k.a. the jiffy coin,

super easy to perform and most people i've performed it to at local bars have no clue how you got their signed coin into a bag inside a box inside another box in like 2 seconds-might seem like beginner magic to us but to most people i show it to they're stunned and ask me if they can keep their coin, good reactions and cheap :P
