Against the advise of every kidshow worker I know, I am currently doing a steel ball C&B in my kid's program. Seems to be working fine. Mr. Bean can entertain doing the most mundane chores imaginable. I'm thinking it's all in the way you do it.

The Al Schneider classic cup and balls routine is very nice for shows.
This is a sit-down routine with a fairy traditional presentation with
three cups, three balls and three final loads. You can get the routine
from Al Schneider cups and balls DVD. The famous LA cups routine
is included in the same DVD.

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a cups and balls routine that I could learn for shows or even recommend a few tricks to learn. Thanks.


This was also "controlled's" last and final post.
His thread was completely hijacked and his call for help was completely ignored.
Is this how magicians help magicians?

His question was answered in the first response. If he got the Ammar book he would have been all set. It was a fairly lame question, that would have been answered with a search, so the thread topic went a different direction. So yes that is how magicians help magicians.

In fact, the more I read the more answers he got. He was looking for a kidshow cups and balls, and the third response advises him against it. So that advice became the new direction.

Josh, I don't think you would appreciate it if your threads are derailed and your questions and comments are referred to as being lame.

Josh, you then wrote:

Here is "controlled's" original and only post:

Josh,
Where in that 2 sentences do you see anything remotely implying any interest in a "kid show" cups and balls?

Finally, let me remind you of the Magic Café's policy on this matter.
Quote Steve Brooks,Posted: May 5, 2002 4:54am:

"Staying on Topic

After reading and posting at The Magic Café for awhile, you may feel as though you have developed friendships with some, perhaps many, of the other posters and readers. This is probably one of the most rewarding parts of participating with our magic family here.

It is only natural to occasionally want to share information with your friends that is “Off Topic” (i.e. not related to the subject matter of the forum you are in).

While it may at first seem harmless to post a bit about off topic (OT) subjects, it can become a slippery slope. If others join in on OT posts then soon everybody has sent the discussion threads on so many tangents that it is difficult to follow the original topic. Further, posting off topic essentially violates our Café rules. People come to The Magic Café forums looking for information related to magic. It is not polite to post off topic items frequently."

The correct Forum a new thread should have been started in regards to "kids shows" is "The little darlings" forum.

Guys, this was TEN YEARS AGO!

Controlled's question was answered a little after four hours after posting. After that, a followup question was asked that was *on* topic, and it continued to build from there. That's the nature of these kinds of forums.

Nobody derailed anything.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

For me....It HAS to be Gazzo's Street Cups...there are no others!

I guess it depends very much on the audience though...
