I just got the "Flicking Fingers: The Movie" DVD and there are two C&B routines there that I wish I'd thought of.

The first is the Fruit Cups--a 2 cup routine that talks about the birds and the bees. It's hilarious!

The second is a full 15-minute routine performed at FISM: The guy is a character actor who performs each phase of the routine as a different character. It was great!

What I took from watching those guys work is: be entertaining! The magic is cool, but make sure people will stay interested in what you're doing long enough to see it.
I need a stage name.

Most of the fellows in the Flicking Fingers cast are terrific at presentations. The can take any trick and make a great routine out of it.

The C+B routine that I wish I had thought of is Latimer's Clear Cups hands down. I mean sure I had thought about doing a routine with clear cups before...but holy moly it's just the most magical thing I've ever seen!

Jason Latimer's visual moves.
Tommy Wonder's construction.
Johnny Thompson's patter.
Suzanne's final load.
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

I understand Suzanne's loads are in print by Al Schneider. Fooled me.

OOOWHEEE! That would, indeed, be a powerful routine! there are so many out there, it's hard to name only a few, but your list is a fine selection!

I did not know that Suzanne's final load was available. I've had this "Scarface" inspired routine banging about my head for some time. Maybe it's time I brushed off that white suit and gold chains.
