I want to know what you carry in your pocket. Well, besides your keys and wallet, what do you take everywhere with you that you can perform with?

I always carry a pack of cards, and copper silver brass with me.

Always have a Pack of Cards and 3 American half dollars. That way I do a coin trick, and a good Card routine. Depends what kind of mood I'm in. Smile

I always carry a small leather change purse with me. I picked this up while on vacation in order to have someplace to keep all the change I was receiving while handing out bills. In one of it's zipper compartments I keep a collection of ordinary coins (halves etc.), in the other I often have a gaff or two. I keep this with me for my own benefit, when I have a spare moment I can pull out a coin or two and practice the slight d'jure, but it also means I always have the makings for an impromptu effect.

I tend to carry a set of thumb-cuffs, a few coins, and sometimes (in the winter with my big jacket) a deck of cards!

No doubt I always have a deck of cards in my pocket (with or without a card guard on), sometimes 2 decks. Also I always have a folding coin on hand (a Canadian quarter) and when I go to parties, I carry the necessary tools for Healed and Sealed.

I tend to put a couple of bits and pieces in my wallet (which is a hip style card to wallet).

This way, if caught off guard, I can at least vanish a ring or marked coin and have it reappear.

I also recently added a Jay Sankey Coin Collector effect, which is a nice one.

I also always have a ring, for David Harkey's goldfinger.

I always have at least two decks (regular, and invisible), a scotch and soda, a small case with two or three packet tricks (color monte, etc), assorted coins, haunted key, perfect pen, and whatever else that I figure could be handy.

What's in my pocket?

These are things that are in my wallet, ALWAYS. I can use them whenever I need them.

Mis-made bill for a switch, Impossible Dream (two $1.00's to a $2.00 to a $5.00), MagiCard, Rubberbands, twist-ties. It's a thick wallet.

A deck of cards, color changing knifes and 3 shells with the pea.

Oops sorry, forget to tell that the deck is a stack...

I have 4 Kennedy halves, and one British copper coin.

I try to borrow everything else for impromptu.

A pair of rubber bands (elastic bands) and a ring. Ideally I would borrow the bands and a ring from the "audience". However, not many people have a couple of bands on them and a large number of people have difficulty removing their ring.

Since you said perform - not necessarily magic - I currently always have a mouth organ (Hohner Special Twenty, key of C), a loop of string (for string figure stories, plus penetration - through thumb or neck - effects) and a fifty cent coin (for a one coin routine I keep playing with.)

I usually have a pack of cards and some IT but at a party last night I had put it all in my bag and there was no way I was wadding through all the other peoples toats and bags before I needed to, so "quick alan think", so a small pice of wax is what I'm left with that was attached to my shirt button I KNOW so I go to my girlfriend and "BORROW" one of her hairs nice n long n blond and I set up melt. I do some sign coin vanishes and then a ring flight with the same principle worked great, impromtu at its best.
