Harry Anderson's signature effect!

Effect: You roll back your sleeve, and start talking about things like "pain thresholds," "surgical procedures," "incisions," "puncture wounds," and other grisly subjects. What might you be up to? Then, from the table, the spectators see a gleaming, 9-inch-long needle, glinting in the stage light. "This," the you say, "is a replica of a traditional voodoo needle, used for the old pin-in-doll routine you've probably heard about. Stick a pin in a doll that looks like your enemy, and supposedly, you'd hurt them at the exact spot the pin was inserted."

Setting the needle back on the table, clean your arm with a towel, and hold it up for all to see. Then, picking up the needle, you plunge it into the bare flesh of your forearm! There is no hiding it - the needle has been thrust through the flesh, plain and simple. The cold, hard steel is run back and forth through the wound, which begins to bleed. The spectators let out a collective "Eeeewwww!" Surprisingly, none of this seems to bother you, continuing to patter about "mind over matter."

Indeed, even though the blood continues to flow down his arm at a steady rate, you are unconcerned by the situation. The needle is slowly and deliberately removed from the arm in full view of the audience. A sterile towel is used to clean off the blood. Amazingly, the arm is unharmed. Perhaps, despite the pseudo-scientific lecture and the amazingly realistic nature of the demonstration, it was just another cunning dodge - a trick of the imagination, perhaps.

NEW IMPROVED NEEDLE...Screw-off bulb for easy clean up!

Complete with:

  • Needle w/screw-off bulb
  • Harry Anderson's stage Blood
  • Glue
  • Harry's complete write-up of routine
  • DVD video of Harry performing his routine

I could tell you 'get this now! it's amazing', and it would be the truth.

However, I want to make sure you know it's for you. This is a fantastic piece of performance. Harry Lorayne, a very funny man, had the humour and energy to play it easy and breezy, but even he knew when to pause and shock the audience.

That's what this does, it shocks. It scares. It excites. It creates emotion. It's fantastic magic. With such a powerful piece though you have to respect it, it can't be done anywhere or anytime, not because it's complicated, but because it needs the right moment. This is something you have to make space in a full show for, not perform for your friends in a bar.

I cannot recommend this highly enough, it is so powerful and direct and clean. But with power comes responsibility and if you intend to use this effect you have to willing to take your act up to the next level.

This is a great package for those people that need a little help with creative presentation. The prop is well made with quality materials. You get everything you need in order to perform this stunner. Great effect to add to a Halloween show.

There's nothing better to put the audience on the edge of their seats. It hurts to watch, but you just can't stop watching it... And you can't stop laughing! Harry was wonderful. RIP Harry. Thank you for your unique entertainment style.
