Hey,

I'm trying to learn some basics in cigaretee magic. I got Expert Cigarette magic Vol. 1 by Mullica. His act is great.

I'm trying to learn tonging but when I try I can't seem to stop the gag reflex. I'm using a rolled up card for practice as he suggested and I even cut off the ends to shorten it... do I just have a small mouth or is this normal?


Also is it supposed to be behind the teeth or in between?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey, How abut instead of putting the cigarette on the tongue could you put to the side of the teeth in between the teeth and side of mouth. would that work ?

Yes, but bad burns would ensue. ;]

There's only two way to go about it - straight in or rotate it in.

Keith Clark's encyclopedia of cigarette tricks would be a good reference, Keith goes into details on all kind of cigarette work. Plenty of photgraph showing the step by step moves.

Tonguing is also covered in detail there.

Behind the teeth, gag reflex has practised, and you have to get used to ash in your mouth. Keith Clarks Ency is very good, but annoying to read because he abbreviates everything.

Thanks paul. Is there any brand you recomend? I normally smoke djarums but the filters are longer than normal cigs. Camels worked better but I was thinking about getting some that had white filters (I don't roll my own or do filterless - I'm not exactly a regular smoker)

I only used to do when drunk... I've since learnt my lesson!!!
I don't smoke either, to me they're all the same.

You need to buy two Keith Clark books and cut the pictures out of one in order to learn it all.That is what I did...Howard

Marlboro lights have a white filter Smile
I live my life for a layer of ice
Just like those poured by my bartender vice
Any taste of vermouth would be really sublime,
When you have a good martini time!
