I tell them I have a little helper, then I perform "Creature"....that totally freaks them out....especially when I spread my hands and there is nothing there, then I cup my hands again and the little demon creature appears again. I've had grown men scream like women when I do this.

No, it's not available through Penguin. It's an Arlen Studios effect. It gets really good reactions. I prefer to perform this in a dim light because it adds to the oddity of the effect, however, it can be performed in daylight.

The description reads:

We all have them, little things living on us! You know, dust mites and small parasitic critters. You have most likely seen blown up photos in a science magazine or on television of them. Yuk!!!! It is interesting to know and point out that some people have even larger things crawling about their person. Magi have been known to carry a small demon familiar with them from time to time. To aid in certain spells and other magical endeavors. Something that must keep to the shadows. Only legend..... till now. Now you can produce a creature at any time in your cupped hands or from a silk scarf or coin purse. Once the creature is manifested itself, open your hands to reveal there is nothing there. Yet, you can re-cup your empty hands and produce the creature once more. Again open your hands to show nothing there. Very easy to do so you can focus on the performance of the great routine and patter supplied or make up your own. This is a performance piece for that special moment when you feel like really freaking someone out!


If you're interested in this effect, PM me and I'll tell you how you can get it.

I always say
" well the first thing i do is...*whisper* practice the trick a lot.
or i say
" It's magic"

or i'll do this: First i point to some guy walking behind the person who's asking me then say "THAT guy" then i slip away while they're looking, if you can pull it off with the right timing then spy upon them while they turn back around they'll be perfectly dumbfounded... :shock:

I'll admit.....I keep close guarded secrets when it comes to my close-up tricks. Even more so my stage illusions. However, I have been known to tell my Grandmother the method of a few of my effects. She's 82 years old......If she takes the secret to her grave......she probably won't have to keep the secret very long. :shock: Sorry Grandma.

She is the ONLY one, other than my wife, that I will show my method to. I had to show her how I did "Needle through the Arm"...I thought she was going to have a heart attack when I performed this. You should've seen her running around the house....OK, she can't run....but man did she MOVE that day!! I had to calm her down, "No..no..no...look..it's just an illusion.....it's not real....it's alright..." Same with the Balducci. Doing that in her living room was a mistake. She called her Pastor and they prayed for me 8) ......She had trouble sleeping for about a month....she was concerned about my "spiritual well-being". Bless her heart....gotta love her. I finally had to show her so she could get some peace.

Here's an alternative. Don't actually answer. Just continue with your routine, or steer the conversation in another direction. They're expecting you not to tell them, so they won't mind. This is more appropriate for more mature audiences.

However, for younger audiences who won't leave you alone, I suggest on using the jokey responses.

Spect: How did you do that?
Me: I dont know the voices in my head were in control at that time...

Works for my "persona" so to speak...
