Yes it is.
The first miser's dream routine I have seen years ago was the one of Michael Vadini. It was a pure moment of magic.
For what I know Vadini worked his routine with Mc Bride.

Glad to hear that you credit Jeff. I met Jeff at Abbott's GTG about 20 years ago, but, don't really KNOW him.

When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I was trying to be "suave & debonair". (It was the "thing" to do, at the time!) I had fifteen minutes of "swayve & deboner" material, including the DOWNS palm (with both hands). Ring 103 magicians, who only worked with 'cans, pans, tubes and boxes", and red velvet bags on a stick", thought that I was a "god"! (here comes the "but" >>> AT 20, I was NOT, "suave & debonair"! <<<.

I was getting a few dates. Then an agent saw me work, and said, "If you can make 'em laugh, I'll get you work!" THAT, got my attention! I sold the white tie and tails, changed the entire concept of the act, and, have never looked back!

My Misers Dream has CLOSED THE SHOW, for younger kids, and family groups, for fifty years, and about 18,000 shows! (For high schools, it's next to closing!)

My old friend, the late FAUCETT ROSS, who KNEW T. Nelson DOWNS, told me that Downs had told him, that the ENTERTAINMENT was "in producing coins from a kid's ear!"

It's a beautiful routine that has so many individual moments of magic and theatre. I understand that Jeff McBride shared his work with Vadini on the miser's dream and in return Vadini shared his work with McBride on the water bowls. Did you study with Vadini or McBride? I'm wondering what you can share about how you developed the McBride (Vadini) routine to make it your own?

Whether Corneille is willing to share with you his McBride/Vadini information is, of course, up to him. corneille is a professional, earning his living with the Misers Dream. Asking a professional to share, gratis, what he does for a living, is a bit much.

About ten years ago, a professional, who is a friend, asked me if I would share my working routine. He offered to pay me a substantial sum, which he did. I was getting ready to retire, so I did. In addition, he sends me a check, as a commission or "residual" fee.

Over the years, professionals like AL FLOSSO, ROY MAYER, STUART ROSS, ORMOND MCGILL, BOBO, AND I SHARED MANY THOUGHTS. Our ideas were shared freely, but, we didn't pass them around to curiosity seekers.

Hi guys,
greetings from a 'day off'(!).
,..an EARNED, day off!
(yeah, I was kinda rough, on the weekend;
I 'earned' a day-off,...
for practise!)

About this clip.
I actually watched it, twelve days ago,
when it first came up.
Thanks for posting it Denis,..
and welcome to the Sidewalk Shuffle.

yeah, when I watched it, 12 days ago,
I thought,...."hmm,..öK."
Then I went out and played,
two, three, four days, in Berlin,..
kinda 'summery' now,..
a bit,...'almost' too warm.
But,...
we have to keep the economy turning,..
we play.
I checked back into the Café,
read some of the comments,..
thought to myself,.."hmm,..? öK."
We played a couple more,...
I checked in again.
Read the discussion.
Thought to myself,.."hmm,.. öK. Watch the clip again."

Many things bubbled around, inside of me.
First,..
first,.."Thanks for sharing your work Denis.
It takes more then steer blood, in the veins,
to post film clips, of our work!
Respect."

Secondly, though,..
and I know,
you did not ask for critique;
I will not critique your number,..
others have more experience with silver cherry picking,
then I!,..!
But,
the 'feel',..
the feel.
It hit me,.."bonk".
'bonk',..'bonk'.
,more then once(!),
It was sö 'static'.
,for me.

The the big 'bonk',..
maybe it was a 'bang'.
The 'big bang'(?).
One characteristic, of 'the Streets',
is the movement.
The unpredictible flow,... movement.
This energy, that is actually a chain reaction,..
that can quite possibly, get out of control!

I found your Show to be too static.
Controlled.
Nö offence.
Nö problem.
But,...the Streets,..
they're not.

. .. .. . .. .. . . . . ö. ö. . . . . .

One of my favourite "Miser Dream",... 'Street clip'
is this.
I think you can see, what I mean, by "flow".
The movement,
the 'feel', in the audience,..
you can feel,..
a tension.
An honesty.

http://youtu.be/0kY8V_u4Xi8
(The Wizard, Alan Thomas, reads and writes here, in the Café.)
{i wish he would write more! He's a clever one,...with experiences.}

Again, just my feeling.
But think for a moment,...
my middle name is ALSO 'Denis',(!),..
albeit,..
spelt correctly,..
with two(!),..2 "n's".
DeNNis.
(AND!, St.Denis,... the patron saints of Street scoundrels!)

Again, thanks for sharing,
gallagher Dennis hayes

Yes, we need to remember that some of the simple moves are the most entertaining when done well.
The presentation makes the magic.
