It would play for as many people as you could gather. . . . know what I mean?

HA! ROFLMAO!

Tom, that one sentence sums the up the entire adventure doesn't it. I may get that tattooed on the insides of my eyelids so that it is the last thing I see before I go to sleep.

Best,

Dan-

Thanks Steve, He got in touch with me. We'll try and hook up. . . or hook him up.

Ben,

I didn't mean to be flip, I just meant that you can make a coin vanish play for hundreds of people if you do it right. The tricks you've chosen will play for 6 people or 600.

I was having a beer with Chris Capehart not to long ago. As I explanied what I did in my show he said to me "Mario I am not interested in what you do in your show as much as I am interested in the way you do it".
There is so much truth in this statement he is a great guy and a real worker.

What sort of presentation do you all use in the street for vanishing/appearing silk?

Ben,
I have a feeling that the reason all conversations stopped after your last post is that you crossed that fine line from "I'm a performer, what do you think of me doing this" to "I'm a beginner, tell me how you do this so I can copy it." I may be wrong (I hope I am) but that's the impression you left.

I suggest you re-read Mario's post, and then read it again. The audience really doesn't care what technique you use, as long as you make it entertaining.

Now, after saying all that:
Cellini's silk vanish is very simple, and very clean. That's not to say it's easy just that it's a routine with no frills to get in the way of the entertainment value. Assuming you have some basic TT skills, you can start by studying his routine.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Hay, I saw these guys once; one made a silk vanish up his friend's bum with the aid of a telescopic aerial. It then popped out his friends mouth... very funny. They are called "The Splott Brothers".

PS Probably a British thing.

Where have you been hangin' out?
I am truly blessed to have a job where people are laughing all the time and everyone believes in magic....Come to think of it, I'm blessed to even have a job.
