Do an illusion with it... On a raised platform (so that they see nothing is underneath) have three buckets and a bowling ball. Perform it like cups and balls and produce a kicker finale, say by producing a female assistant...

What do you think? Smile

I would, without a doubt, pay to watch this...

Not a bad idea huh? I have a good idea how to do it, just don't have the cash. Any takers? I'd PAY AS WELL to see this performed... Smile

Sounds cool, but where does the assistant appear from? The buckets?

Ok gang, you have stumbled across an idea that I have been working on.

I am 6'7" tall and I thought it would be cool if I could do the cups and balls with buckets and a bowling ball.

I figured out a way of performing this effect. But I have not yet built it.
I did pass the idea along to Kevin James since he is always looking for new ideas.
Don't know if he is going to use it but my idea is workable.

I once saw a guy performing the cups and balls with soccer balls and three garbage cans and it worked like a charm.

You may be 6'7" but I think even you would struggle to finger palm/thumb palm a bowling ball!!!

cheers

I've been doing this in my kids show for a long time. I have painted 3 garbage cans (in plastic): one yellow, one red and one blue (the same colors as the plastic ones). I also use NERF balls (yellow).

I start by doing the small plastic ones (that you can buy for $5.00 in magic shops) but nobody can see and I go too fast. After this, I explain to the crowd that I will do it again but this time they will be able to follow. At that moment my assistant brings the BIG ones...

I developed an idea (which works) to make my assistant appear under a garbage can at the end of the routine with the last ball in her hands. I also have a way to do a chop cup. I think David Acer did a routine similar in a convention (big cups and balls without the chop cup and the final load).
