Hi Stefan,
Feel free to pm/e-mail me if you want some of my input into to the structure of the routine.
I agree that it is an open and honest sell and the product has a lot of potential.

I have. GREAT BOOK!

Hi Stefan,

Are you a full time professional entertainer? You say that you have been performing this routine for eight years with great success and I am incredibly curious to know if you have performed it as a full time entertainer or if this is something you do on the weekends? About how many times per year do you do the act? I'm also curious to know what types of venues you performed it at?

It is a highly unusual act and I am curious to know how it came about. What is your background in theater, mime, and magic?

Best,

Dan-

Wow...... 6 mins. of my life gone.

Holy clap-happy audience..... I wonder if they were paid before or after the show.

This was 'horrible' at best...and you are selling this? Disgraceful...how can anyone NOT have an opinion on this? And what on earth was the audience on that night? I'd like some of that...if it makes that shoddy hack bit look good I'd bet it would cure my migraines!

Well I have to admit I was going to purchase the DVD/CD set but the reviews out of this group have been so bad that I have changed my mind.

Wa-na-be - did you see the routine before the comments on this thread changed your mind? If so, what was your original opinion of the routine?

While I agree with many of the criticisms of this piece, at least the guy was good enough to post a live video of the routine to show exactly what you get.


In that case Andy, I retract my statement (above)!!

The video is gone...that doesn't seem like a glowing recommendation?!

If not, then I'll think good thoughts for the monkey.

Hi there,

the video is currently being re-edited. The reason for this should be obvious. Many of you mostly commented on the weird audiences reaction than on the routine itself. You mentioned the qualitiy of the pantomime bit which is a big and important part of the routine.

But you couldn't stand the permanent clapping. I gave my own thoughts on this issue in a post above, just reread it to learn my own opinion. I was not happy with this myself and I want you to experience the trick just as anybody else would do in a normal performance, so I am going to show you exactly this in the new video.

I will post a link to the new vid in a couple of days. In the meantime thanks for your interest. Stay tuned.

Stefan

I'm glad the monkey is ok.
Have you ever seen that British lady ventriloquist and her monkey/vent routine????

I assume you're talking about Nina Conti (her father, Tom, is a pretty famous actor, over here, you guys might know him from his guest appearance in Friends), I love her act, it's brilliant. She reacts so naturally to the monkey.

I have seen her act and to be honest the monkeys voice sounds just like hers but mumbled. It just didn't do it for me.

If you want to see a god of comedy mime perform the suitcase bit check out Les Bubb here:

This is what it is suppose to look like.

Kimmo,
I went out and watched the youtube video. I thought it looked staged and that it was slow moving. I thought that there was some great ideas so I was going to get the DVD for his ideas on performance and to see if the routine may work for me in a different setting. Being that there are other DVD's out there that will cater to performance styles. I think that I will look into those before I commit to buying this one.

Nice find Danny. What is clear is that this routine COULD be great! I think that is what was most annoying about watching the original clip - the potential was there but it just failed to deliver on any level. I await Stefan's new clip with interest!
