Many of you know that I flew to England earlier this year to give my lecture for children "Making Mistakes on Purpose!" I also opened the morning show as guest artist for the UK Children's entertainer of the Year. Both in the show, and in my lecture, I performed Jolly Roger's Cloth of Invisibility. This is simply, in my opinion, one of the greatest magical effects ever! I performed it in Blackpool and at The Magic Circle in London, and got nothing but rave reviews. It is so good, that I have been reluctant to release it in the US. However, I have a limited supply of my Blackpool lecture notes available which include a full explanation of this along with my Peanut Butter and Chicken Soup and other great stuff. I am releasing these to members of The Magic Café, and you can find out more information on my website http://www.comicmagician.com

Don't miss out........this offer will not last for long!

Huh? Why?

You don't want people to do it?
You want to be the only one performing it?

Then don't release it.
But it sounds like a cheesy marketing ploy to say, "Well, I wasn't going to release this, but... here's the website address to buy it."

Anyway I went to the site to check things out,

Has anyone tried Jolly's Ravioli stuff? What are the results as compared to the original Peanut Butter & Jelly routine?

I am not sure...this is just my thought process:

I am wondering if cans of ravioli, soup cans and the like are actually turn-offs to some kids? The PB&J stuff gets kids excited because I think most kids like them, they are more of a sweet-snack food, they are more common, plus they go together and make sense to be used. Is adding in meaty canned foods throwing off the routine?

Opinions?
My mind is changeable...sometimes.

Roger,

Would you give a more thorough description of what's in your lecture notes and what the "Cloth of Invisibility" is?

I read what's on your website and there's really not much of a description of what a person will find in the notes.

O.K "The Cloth of Invisibility!" In a nutshell, the effect is that the magician stands on a stool, floats in the air behind a cloth, becomes invisible, and reappears to thunderous applause. It can be done in a living room, on a stage, on top of a mountain, in the middle of a desert! It requires no special shoes or clothing. It is great for kids or adults.

I know that some members of the Café attended my lecture in Blackpool, and I would be happy for any of them to post reviews. They can also post reviews of my peanut butter and chicken soup and magician's washing machine which are also in the lecture notes. The magician's washing machine was written up in Abra a number of years ago when I had the column "Jolly Roger Goes West!"

I am happy to answer any more questions. On a personal note, I am flying to South America next wednesday, August 30th. returning on September 15th, so if you would like to order the notes or any of my other products and have them shipped immediately, I would suggest you do it in the next few days, otherwise they will be shipped on September 18th.

Roger,

Do you have the notes in pdf format, so that they could be easily downloaded or emailed to your customers? It would save on shipping costs, and get to your customers outside the UK much quicker.

Hello Brian,

No, I do not have them in pdf format. However, I live in Arizona. They are only $25 including postage in the US. I should be charging $500 for the "cloth of invisibility" routine it is so good! I am originally from England, but have been living in the US since 1992.

O00ps Brian! I did not realise you were in Canada! They will still be $25 including postage. If anyone lives in England or other countries outside the US and would like a set, you can pm me, and I will let you know the postage charge. Thanks!

Sadly, folks, it is Beef Ravioli. You have to add your own parmesan cheese! Just a little observation as to why I am marketing it as Ravioli and Chicken Soup, rather than PB@J. As you know, I am from England, and PB@J is a very American idea. British Kids don't connect with the Jelly part of it. They know what Ravioli is, and they know what Peanut Butter is. That is why you have the big finish with the snakes coming out of the Peanut Butter! Please do not confuse this routine with Tim Wenk's PB@J. It is a totally different trick, and far superior in many ways.

Whoa.
Is it me, or did you take his idea (concept) and re-work it to make your own money, and then put his down?

Is ANYONE but me slightly offended by this?

You mean like taking the passe passe concept that belonged to somebody else and using it for a kid show using peanut butter and a jam pot?

The description of Jolly Roger's item sounds fantastic, really funny, and far enough away from PBand J for me to not only not be offended by it but considering purchasing it.

I don't think Mr. Wenk would be offended by it but I might be wrong.

Best,

Dan-

Rabbit,

I think you are confusing me with Houdini and the Unmasking of Robert Houdin!!
If I sounded like I was putting down the original Peanut Butter and Jelly, then I stand to be corrected. PB&J is a great trick, I simply believe my Ridiculous Ravioli is better in many ways. My trick is quite different. Your comment is rather like saying that noone should say that the slimline sawing a lady in half performed by the Pendragons is better than P.T. Selbit's sawing a lady in half. Magic is all about evolution. There are only a few basic principles from which everthing else evolves. Magicians used to produce rabbits from hats. Now they produce Tigers in cages!

Can we please return to my original post, and wipe away some of this negativity? Please?

Roger....how many pages are these notes and do they contain "only" the 3 tricks/routines you mentioned above? I am definitely contemplating buying these, but your description of the notes is rather vague.

Hello Harv,

Yes, the notes contain these three basic routines which are all extremely commercial and duable. In addition to these there are lots of bits of business and advice for children's entertainers. There are 10 pages. Unfortunately, my lecture at Blackpool was limited to one hour, so I chose the best stuff!! I do not believe you will be dissapointed!

I would like to chime in here and give my views as I saw Rogers lecture at Blacpool and have his lecture notes and Ravioli effect. First of all don't pass up on owning these lecture notes. Besides the levitation there is 2 other great routines which are very original in working and presentation. The cloth of invisibility is by far the best and easiest levitation I either know of or own. Im putting it into my show and am sure it will bring the house down. It really is an ingenius way to add some true magic to any show. And for anyone not sure about rediculous ravioli I say buy it. Its very original and far different and superior to the original and the climax is just amazing for kids.

I think we've discussed this before but are you at Blackpool next Feb? If so I would like to see some of your items in the flesh. They look very interesting and a lot of fun. Shipping to England is a little on the expensive side so it would be better to buy direct at Blackpool.
