The Tabary rope routine is great for the streets. Just start performing it and attract your crowd.

There is a lot of rope magic on his two tapes. Daryl’s three volume Encyclopedia of Rope Magic video’s/DVD’s have more rope magic then you will ever use! Steve Bedwell has developed a couple of nice routines that are good for almost any stand-up venue. The Penetrating rope uses three spectators and makes your show look big. It is discussed on the “Hang em High” thread. Then there is always the Dover Press reprint of Abbott’s Encyclopedia of Rope Magic. It can be ordered from almost any bookstore for about $10.00 USD.

Most rope magic is appropriate for the streets. I can’t imagine NOT being able to find several routines appropriate for the streets!

Get the Daryl tapes and you won't be dissappointed.

I have to agree with J.B. about the Zander routine.

My routine, "The Magic Jumprope" takes an extremely simple trick and a kid from the audience and becomes a feature showpiece. It's great on the street or at parlor/platform shows. It's in my 2001 Lecture Notes and in my book, Great Scott! It's More Magic!

Daryl's rope routine played extremely well for me on the streets of New York City. And as they say: "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere..."

As a quickie I use rigid rope and ask: "Have you seen the latest rope? It is called Viagra Rope?" Not original so thanks to whoever.
...Simply Amazing!

I learned Brad Burt's Rope and Ring routine from the video of the same name and have had good success with it.
