This morning.

I usually start my workshops tying the illusions of magic with the illusion created by puppetry. (animation) As a nearly normal coin guy, I do a coin flurry or other short routine...from basic bending the coin..to sometimes starting with 5 c/p in my right hand a larger one in the s....., and surprise ending perhaps behind a puppet. (puppets make great misdirection for coin and other magic work)

I am think about creating a puppet based on coins. Perhaps it will be a marionette....any creative thinkers with suggestions....

Be safe, well and creative....

Harris....
have coins will travel....

How's about a piggy bank puppet? He'd have a lot to say about the comings and goings of coins in and out of him.

Or maybe a character Nearly Madeoff, the Wall Street Wonder, an insurance investor who's looking for a risk to back. He's there to insure you against any loss of the spectator's money. Along the way, he "explains" how everyone passing risk of debt back and forth somehow creates the illusion of money, which ultimately, disappears.

Or, just stick a pair of eyes on a stack of bills, and do the Geico version of "Hundy".
Is THAT a PALMS OF STEEL 5 Banner I see? YARRRRGH! Please visit The Magic Bakery

Hmm will have to check youtube or other places for the poker guy.

Thanks for the Geico reference...I have been thinking about it.

Many times I sits and thinks and then act.

Many more times I just sits and think.


keep em coming...

Puppets and coin magic are a good combination for this nearly normal entertainer.

Misers Piggy...

This little piggy went out with KERMIT.

This little piggy had roast beef..

This little piggy got "MadeOFF"
