"Wow. This is sure to be a modern classic. It's absolutely sensational and completely fooled me." -Andy Nyman

"A Single Needle is smart, streamlined and powerful. It's like finding a needle in a Houchin haystack" -Lee Asher

"Wayne is one of the most talented and effective magicians in the world. His magic simply mesmerizes and this is no exception!" -Aaron Fisher

The performer swallows a needle, wraps a length of thread around a volunteer’s finger and places the other end in his mouth. He slowly eats the thread, eventually backing away to reveal the needle impossibly tied onto the string.

A Single Needle is Wayne Houchin’s take on the classic needle swallowing effect. SIMPLE , CLEAR and absolutely INSANE, Houchin has distilled the effect down to it's very essence.

What makes this version unique is that Wayne utilizes a brilliant new method which allows the volunteer to hold the string as the needle is retrieved.


  • Clever and unique handling keeps the thread visible at all times
  • Multiple methods taught
  • Create the illusion of a VERY dangerous situation
  • NO GIMMICKS


Multiple techniques are discussed that enhance the illusion of danger while keeping the effect as safe as possible.

Although Wayne has taken every step possible to create the safest version of this effect, there will always be some risk of injury. Purchasers and/or performers of this effect assume all risks involved.

THIS IS BIZARRE. UNUSUAL. INCREDIBLE.

Wonder Awaits.



DVD features live performance, interviews and a detailed explanation. 40 minutes.

a single needle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2014
wow, all i can say is that this trick is soo much better than what i thought. At first i thought it might not work well in close up situations, but after a few performances, it works perfectly! i received the DVD and was performing the effect merely minutes after watching it. It is so good, and extremely fooling to a spectator. Some have already told me they are scared for me while i'm doing the trick! haha i think this trick will go with Wayne Houchin's "thread" perfectly. Swallow a needle, have the spectator fish it out, take the needle off the thread, proceed to swallow the thread, and end by pulling it out of your eye! talk about a reputation maker. Overall, i am extremely satisfied and will continue to by anything Wayne creates.

Although I purchase a lot from Penguin, I didn't purchase this here, however I am posting my review here as many reviewers on this site have been very helpful and this is the way I try and give back.

I have been performing a single needle daily for 2 weeks. The day I got it, I practiced it about ten times with a toothpick at first breaking off pieces until I got the right size for my mouth, before trying it with a needle. You can use a piece of raw spaghetti as an alternative. This should not be overlooked, practice, practice, practice makes perfect, and THIS EFFECT IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS!!! That's the appeal to the spectators, so tread lightly and be "hyper-aware" of your audience, participant, and the needle at all times, just as Wayne states in the video.

That said, if you can get it down, this is elegant and mysterious, and just plain bizarre, so don't under-play it.
If you can master this one, you will be performing a piece of enchantment for all who witness it, play it up big and people will never stop talking about you ;)

I was a bit weary of trying this, being mostly a card and slight of hand artist, but with a little thought and practice, I can now do this with 3 rather large needles with ease, which is a bit contradictory to the "single needle" concept, but for me, I think 3 is always a magic number to use. It took a little thought and a bit of change to the moves during loading, but for me it's worth it. I also performed it with a single needle the same day I learned it, but it was only for my wife late that night after practicing for hours, after practicing, I walked around the house doing my usual routine,.. all with the needle in my mouth just to get comfortable with it.

This is a stunning showpiece, give it the respect it deserves and be careful, you CAN poke yourself with the needle in your mouth if you're not "hyper-aware"!

You'll be not too crazy worried about it if you've done anything like it before, or have been pierced in the lip or tongue, etc,.. but don't be careless.

Highly recommended. For adults only!

awesome Report this review

Simple Strong and Clean,I can't find a justification to tie a swallowed needle but it's so wire and possibly dangerous that the reaction would be strong anyway

I was a bit skeptical when i bought this as i dont usually do things like this. The whole dvd is very well produced and what you see is what you get. If you like what you see buy it you wont be disappointed. Waynes explanation was very clear and concise so hardly any cons. It gets great reactions and its definitely a reputation maker!

FANTASTIC! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2014
I've had this quite a few months now. It's important to say that the method isn't exactly what you are thinking: it allows you to show the string FREELY, you can move your hands all along the string.

I've performed this quite a few times with great success.

I HIGHLY recommend it!
