Some really good stuff here guys!!!! I actually just bought "Street Monte" By G Sparks!!!! The effect is a little obvious if you watch the demo. However, I have been working on a revised handling for a bar situation. It uses a spectators quarter and three different beer caps IE (Miller Lite, Corona and Heineken) Then I place the coin under the chosen cap and in a monte style routine the coin keeps appearing under different caps under the craziest of conditions and then finally under the specs watch!!!! I would suggest checking into the original "street monte" and if you like it just shoot me a PM and I will be more then happy to go into more details on my revised routine.... Like all good things though trial and error are key. So its still a diamond in the rough but so far its coming together nicely.

Anyways some really good stuff you guys have been listing!!! Lets keep em comin Smile

I agree with On The Spot enthusiasts. 3/4 across kills every time, Recap also gets great reactions. I also always have a TT with me, best impromptu tool ever created.

Copper/Silver with Morgan dollar and Sudbury penny finish.

I use the Sudbury penny finish with a big build up, with no other phases to the routine. I got the idea for my presentation from Shawn Farquhar. It gets such a great reaction that I put it into my professional repertoire.

I also perform ring and string. The modification of a Mark Leveridge ring-on move really gets attention and my finale is definitely a big finish.

Two in the hand, one in the pocket; with bar napkins, wine cork cut up, or any other small, common objects. Can be done anywhere, any time with minimal prep.

Torn and restored dollar followed by a vanish.
Crazy man's handcuffs.
Coin tricks.
Pretty much, anything that's on hand. You can even use a pebble with most coin sleights.

Its a reversal; obviously, you couldn't carry that trick everywhere; therefore its funny

Yeah I may also recommend taking a look at Flush by John Stessel. It's a really nice linking rubber band effect that happens on the specs finger and is easy to do. I ussually start with Crazy Man's Handcuffs then move onto Stairway by Marcus Eddie then end with Flush and it kills everytime.

I tear up a few napkins, toilet paper, paper towel, notebook paper,or whatever,make them into some little balls and do an impromptu sponge balls routine. Kills every time.

I'm with Whiteoakcanyon - I always have 4 or 5 rubber bands on my wrist and can go with Crazy Mans Handcuffs or a couple of the others off Dan Harlan's "The Band Shark". The incredible disappearing rubber band is insanely simple, people are often genuinely amazed and I'm always giggling inside at how I get away with it!

My go-to and most comfortable close-up item to perform is my coin flurry with jumbo finish. Working at a restaurant, I've had plenty of time to master it and become extremely comfortable with it. I can just about do it in my sleep! CMH is always ready to go. For awhile, I would perform (while serving tables) CMH, into Stairway, followed by Sanders' Cramped, a bill to pen cap routine. It kills!

Depends on the spectator but I do a one ahead prediction or a coins across. I usually also have color monte on me.

Wow... all good stuff here.

If I'm out and about, I usually have a forcing deck of some kind made from local casino cards (I live in a "casino town"), Kolossal Killer (the forcing deck always is made to work with KK as an option), a TT, a silk handkerchief, and something that burns... people love fire.

And, of course, a pen and post it can always be picked up for a B****t S****h or CT, but the BIG killer is always metal bending. If I'm anywhere near a spoon, fork, key, penny, etc. I always like to work in THEIR hand if I can.
Boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Boy: Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

If I have a deck of cards, I just do something with that. If not, I always have my wallet, and in it I carry Shinkansen by Phil Goldstein and a Credit Card Monte. Also, rubber band magic is good to perform on the spot.
