Hi Danny! Where can I find his books?

Don't miss out on the great new mentalist magic:

Most magic shops carry Pat Pages books. eBay is another great resource for his stuff.

Another one I do is the "limp arm" bit, where the arm "dangles" from the elbow and you tap it with the other hand and it swings back and forth like a pendulum. Tap it harder, and it swings wider. Smack it and it goes ALL the way around!

I saw Sandy Duncan do that in "Peter Pan"

I like the giant "match Sticks" These cigarette lighters that look like a match are popping up everywhere but they have their moments.
They look great when used to light juggling torches
Believe you then that I do strange things

I make a big balloon flower with a long stem. break the stem off at the flower holding the air in the stem. pantomime smelling the flower, then hand it to some one. when they take it but the stem let it go and walk off smelling the flower.
I normally put a loop at the bottom of the flower so after the stem flys away I can go back and give the flower to ware on there wrist.
Popping, or riping balloons is great, people love it, and works for a build to needle threw balloon, bill-oon. so on.

I've been using a "gag bag" as a receptacle for the ropes I use in my Standard Intro - the sort of bag which, each time you turn it inside out, the fabric is a different color and pattern?

Sometimes I notice it, but sometimes I just keep right on talking as if this sort of thing happens to me all the time (and it does!)... it's not a grab-em-by-the-hair sight gag, but it's a darn fine example of "trolling for eyeballs".

... either that or some of the stuff I do in my show is solely for my amusement. Anyone else laughs, that's collateral entertainment.

This can be crude but in the right situation can be very funny. Take the guts out of a pen (the kind with a cap) and put a rectal thermometer in there. When you need to have someone sign something take out the pen and remove the cap and look at it like you don't understand what it is. Then say "you know what?, I think some a$#%$*@ has my pen"!

Please don't be rude if you do this or if kids are around.

Gazzo does/did a wonderful bit where he offers a kid a dollar for helping him and keeps faking the kid out with a dollar bill snatcher. Robert Baxt also uses a reel with a breast pocket hankerchief. There is just something about stuff zipping back to places that makes people laugh.
