1. Handout Hank is a quick, humorous and magical effect. Quentin Reynolds' "5 Minutes with a Pocket
Handkerchief" is one of my go-to tricks. I'm going to incorporate Handout Hank into the beginning
of that routine.
2. Handout Hank is practical for walk-around, parlor or stage. Works for
children or adults, but the patter will have to be changed depending on the audience. No angle
problems, instantly resets. It does require a long-sleeved shirt or jacket. The shirt sleeves can
be rolled up a bit, if you like to perform that way.
3. There's a gimmick. It's practical
to use, requires no pocket space, and won't get in the way when you're performing other tricks.
It's an interesting variation on a gimmick that every magician's familiar with. I had never seen
this variation before. Puck gives a little history about it, with acknowledgement to the magician
who showed it to him.
4. You have to construct the gimmick, but it's quick to make and
requires minimal skill. The materials for the gimmick will cost maybe $5 at an office supply store.
As it happens, I already have all the materials in my house.
5. The instructional video is
short (15 minutes) and very well taught. Puck is an excellent teacher, very clear and well
organized. He walks you through every step of the performance and the construction of the gimmick.
6. The price is very reasonable, considering that this is a highly polished professional
routine, with excellent instruction from a leading magician.
7. If you like the effect as
shown in the demo, I recommend this trick highly.

This is a great video download for the money. Can't beat it pound for pound. This definitely will
be used in your show if your into this type of magic. If you use the "Dancing Hank" or Not it's an
excellent piece to add to your set. For $14.95 it's perfect price, but easily sell for $19.95.
1) easy to get "items to make gimmick"
2)Takes minutes to make
shoulder explanation to make learning process easier
4)YOU CAN HAND THE HANK OUT .
clean display before it dances

7)And for those like me who
use the "Dancing Hank", This is priceless!!!

Very nice effect, an excellent addition to an existing hank routine...or stand alone. Great
instruction on making the necessary gimmick and handling. What's not to like? Five stars.
Handout Hank is a very clever gimmick, to make a 18 inch silk wiggle and dance in your hand.
a great effect,and is suitable for all types of audiences,when you purchase this effect,you get an
easy to understand tutorial on how to make the simple gimmick for a low cost.Highly recommended.
I am a big fan of the dancing hank. I have many gimmicked versions of this effect. You can hand the
hanky out with this one. Puck is very creative and this is pure magic. A bit of practice but not
difficult.I highly recommend Hand out hank.
The routine is great, the method is really clever and it is a great adition to my dancing hankey
routine so 5 stars from me.
Puck has everything figured out for us. Thanks Puck
A worker if you know when to use it. The demo, explanation, and instructions were excellent. Very
well thought out. The presentation is great and provides a blueprint for creating your own. Yes,
there is some preparation but the payoff is worth it. No worse than being prepared with a TKO,
topit, t tip, shell or other preparation. The DIY preparation isn't too technically demanding. A
great deal at this price. I hope he releases other great ideas like this.
The video includes a performance followed by the secret being tipped and complete instructions on
where to obtain the materials, build the works and perform the effect. Puck takes a few moments to
share his inspiration for the effect and how it was used in his professional shows.
running time for the video is just under 15 minutes, including the performance, history and
