I would like to say:

I used the coin change tonight at one of my paid stand up shows for about 50 people.

I used it with my misers dream. I had been pulling half dollars out of the air and then I took one of the half dollars out of the bucket, and the audience saw it changing into a giant penny. I then threw it into the bucket (with a nice loud ping.

Suddenly all of the half dollars in the bucket mended together into one huge penny! (Thanks Bob Solari.)


The audience all started "Whoa!"-ing when the coin changed into a penny in front of them. One of the younger kids shouted "It's a penny!"


Needless to say, it went over VERY well and will stay in my misers dream act. I can't ignore reactions that are that great.

Were they all standing in a straight line? Drunk?

Maddy,

There is no way this happened if it was not from a straight forwarded view. If the kid was sitting in front of you with perfect lighting then perhaps. Everyone else from the sides had no idea what was going on. Please do try to be honest.

Not drunk or standing in a line. They were sitting in a room while I was on stage.


I am being honest RNK. It can be used so that the angle doesn't mattwr

Even from a small stage, its wild that someone could identify the penny as a penny. That penny gaff was fairly dark and none too clear (at least, mine was).
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I know! I was shocked too. I assume the color of the coin just instantly made him associate the coin to a penny. He was probably 10 years old or so.

First, I never said you weren't honest. But I will say its interesting how the majority are stating how terrible and unworkable this is but mainly you. Maybe you are the next Copperfield.

Kudos to you Magic.maddy, for being out there, on the front lines, making people happy. If this trick works in your performance than that is great. Maybe most will be disappointed with it, but it's good to hear a dissenting opinion too.

Sorry that was actually about Altrez's comment.

And perhaps I am. I wouldn't mind being the next multi-billionaire with my own island. You're invited to come and visit once it gets purchased.


As I've said, this has potential and when used PROPERLY, can be quite good. I think using it in misers dream is a perfect example. It is used a a very small part of a large effect.

Since you are so confident. Why don't you show us a real live performance using CHANGE during a paid gig for 50 as you stated?

I believe Magic.Maddy without seeing a real live performance.

Based on his extensive Café history he isn't a liar.

He has made the trick work for him after much thought and practice.

Well done Magic.Maddy. Keep magic live.

Come on chaps; I don't think its fair to start calling peopl liars becasue they have a different opinion to the majority. I am certainthere are some people who can make this work for them; and that's surely good.

This is true Paul. I retract my previous post.

Is that an apology or just a retraction?

I apologize for my post. I am glad you found a good use for the coin Maddy. It just did not seem possible to me that it could work as I spent a lot of time going over the same type of routine and it just looked really bad. So perhaps you just have the right touch for the effect.

Good man. A straight apology is much better than a mere retraction (take note RNK).

I never said anything derogatory towards Maddy.

Simply requesting a video of performing CHANGE for 50 strangers is somehow bashing Maddy?

Hmmm. I did forget how sensitive your are and how most quietly laugh at you needing the attention and notoriety.
