I did a kids party on Thursday and an adults party for about 90 folks last night. At the kids show I was wearing jeans with no jacket for most of the time as it was unseasonably mild here in York. For Friday's gig I was suited and booted. The first thing to say is that despite the gimmick being in full view at the kids show all afternoon, it raised no interest whatsoever. I've been doing coinvexed for years since it first came out. I get many bookings from people who've seen me doing it at gigs and want me to do it for their party so I know how strong it is. I prefer the original coinvexed. I feel less confident with the mechanics of coinvexed 2. Well it's early days playing with Bionik but so far I'm delighted with the reactions I'm getting with this and I'm sure they will only get better. The mechanics of the effect are pretty straightforward. There's really nothing to stress about and you can focus on presentation. There's a couple of variations in presentation you can use for this shown on the DVD and some subtleties you can add. I've gone for the unsubtle approach and I've been using the Dee Christopher reveal which IMHO looks sensational. Before doing the reveal I pose a question: if you were stranded on a desert island which would you rather have a knife or a fork? If they say the fork I give them back the fork. If they say the knive I put the fork away in my pocket and either way I've got the knife ready to reveal the bend. The rest is acting. Don't do what I did and buy cheap knives from T....s. They are 4 for a quid and bend really easily but unfortunately you can bend them back with your little finger. You do want to ask your spec if they can bend the knife back. If they can it spoils the impact. For gigs I bought some tougher knives from a kitchen shop that cost me 90p each. So I''ve been looking for some remaindered knives today and found some at 6 for a pound which should work. So all in all it's a worker for me. I probably won't do this at every table, just the ones where folks are really into magic or have been warmed up a bit but I can't see this ending up in a drawer anytime soon. [/quote]
