Can anyone surgest a quality stage rope routine? Comedy would be ideal. I am practicing with Jeff McBride's at the moment.

Wally, Pete hit the nail on the head in the above post.

However, If you are after a routine with comedy involvement,
rather than a routine with comedy lines, I would suggest..
Mac Kings "other rope routine"
Shigeo Takagi 'do as I do"
Steve Bedwells "In over your head"
or if I may humbly include my own "Hunter Knot revisited"

For comedy without direct spectator involvement
you can't go past Whit Haydens Mongolian Pop Knot.

Hi folks,
Just popping in on this discussion. Recently I purchased the Rope DVD from the World's Greatest Magicians series by L & L Publishing. I really enjoyed it and as a lover of rope magic I was impressed and learned some new stuff! It is worth it to have on your shelf! $19.95 from L & L!!

I bought this from Patrick back in the mid 70's. It is called the "Everlasting Rope Trick" because you use one rope forever! It is a cut and restored rope routine that doesn't use up any rope! This is typical Patrick Page thinking. Perfect for stand-up or walk-around. I used to perform it table hopping.


I don't do this effect ... although perhaps I should make it up. I hadn't thought about the possibilities of using it for restaurant work. I did get a great tip from Pat's Rope Magic video that I thought was very practical for doing cut and restored rope in a restaurant setting and ending clean.

See ya!

The only place I've seen it so far is on eBay... for $18.99

Not sure I'm willing to pay that for this single routine.


The description from my Pat Page notes does show a gimmicked rope, so that is what you are buying. If the eBay offering includes the rope, then this is a fair price for a cut and restored rope trick that does not require constant replenishment of the rope, as in most C & R rope tricks.


Actually, you could make it up yourself, but the price this dealer is selling it for already prepared seems very fair. Incidentally, I've had good experience with this dealer in the past. I may just buy it from them, since I have NO facility for arts and crafts! I've seen Patrick perform this on video, and it does look very visual and surprising.

See ya!

It's true that Patrick Page's Rope Magic & Magic With Paper DVD contians only a performance of this effect, as well as several other effects whose methods are considered so obvious that no explanation is required. Take a look at the Tabary videos for an everalsting cut-n-restored rope without the gimmicks.

There are literally dozens of sources for an “everlasting” cut and restored rope routine. They all date back to, and are largely based on George Sands original handling found in his little booklet “Sandsational”. Variations can be found in Salvano’ work (Greater Magic Video Library volume 9), the already mentioned work of Tabary, in Flip’s work, and even on the encyclopedic DVD set on rope magic by Daryl. The principle is very old and is very easy to perform.

The downside (if there is one) is that in all of the routines there is an extra “something” to get rid of. That is an extra move to think about.

What Pat Page does with his version of the “Everlasting Rope” it make it so that the handling is totally open and there is no ditching the extra bit. The downside with his version is that you cannot toss the rope to the audience at the end.

I use Page’s version on the street where I might repeat the cut and restoration of the rope several times in a row to build a crowd. Once the crowd is built the prop is tossed casually in the bag and off I go to the next routine. My hands never get near a pouch or pocket since there is nothing extra to get rid of.

I can (and do in different venues) perform several different versions, I use Pat Page’s the most often.
