My middle name is Arthur.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

If impromptu is really your middle name, then you ought to be able to perform without the use of props that you brought with you. Now I know, I know; impromptu can mean "seemingly impromptu to the spectators," but as long as you're going to claim to be able to perform impromptu then I would expect you could actually do something that's truly impromptu.

Wonderland Dollar and Two Ones to a Two fit neatly in my wallet along with:
Two Pennies or borrow same: Two Pennies on Knee and Tenkai Pennies (see Bobo's)
A couple of Rubber Bands for obvious routines

Being able to borrow a deck of cards, showlace or string, kleenex what becomes available expands exponentially. Best,

Hi-
1) Invisable Deck
2) 2 Card Monte
3) Fant-a-Stick (It may be an incredably simple trick, but it always gets amazing results)
4) Regular Deck
5) TT with sugar packs or a napkin

Magically,
Matthew Toner

In case anyone's interested:

1. Ike Dollar Coin & Sudbury Penny (Spellbound)
2. Lubor Lens (Reality Twister)
3. 3-Ring Circus (Jay Sankey)
4. Mismade Dollar Bill (Four Corners)
5. Gimmick for doing Cap In Glass Bottle (Prohibition)

Normally, I don't carry that much...the coins and Lubor Lens are ALWAYS with me. I will sometimes just do magic with what I find handy, pens (Flip Stick), rubberbands (CMH), or even a golf ball!

Best,

Doug

Other items I carry are:

Two dice for a dice addition trick
two paper clips for the linking paper clips
two rubber bands for crazy man's handcuffs
a deck of cards for doing some of Ammar's ETMCM and for practice from Royal Road

Just my normal hands. I hate it when I want perform something only to find I forgot my hands. a classic palm is utterly unconvincing without a palm.

What are hands and where can I buy them? Can hands be used surrounded? Do they have to be the same color as your skin? Or if used properly can they be sterling silver? Are gimmicked hands better than normal hands?

They're much better (by far!), but they're near impossible to ditch without a large cutting utensil nearby! Smile

Your imagination is a great thing to carry with you. You might need a large bag or a soda can. You can then imagine the tricks you are going to do. Or you can imagine there's no heaven and the world living as one.

I like to carry a monkey.

And I have a deck of card too. Really easy to find the selected card, but the 21 card trick takes a lot of setup.

I hate to carry a coin sleight, it fills up my socks. I like to carry the Downs palm.

As far as pocket tricks go, I have a method to make my pocket go outside of the pants. GREAT reactions. First I take the pants off, then the misdirection is built in.


Monkey plus card to impossible location makes for a really unusual reveal, but I bet the monkey won’t like it.
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

I performed "Card to Monkey" at a P.E.T.A. rally. Big mistake!
