I have an upcoming gig that I would like to use the sponsors name in a routine using a large version of the Daytona Magic effect "Spelling Bee". Anyone have any suggestions?

Besides just making a bigger version?

Yes, sorry I wasn't clear. I have a large version. I'm looking for ideas for a routine.

Check Harry Allen's performance of Spelling Bee on YouTube.

I pretend mine is a Scrabble rack, and I've redesigned the cards to resemble Scrabble tiles. After gathering them up, I go through the usual routine, having the entire audience vote as a whole which card goes in each position, playing upon the whole "wisdom of crowds" premise.

Beyond that, you would need to tell me a little more about your performing persona, your performance premise, and the business your sponsor is in, in order to come up with anything more specialized.

Thank you Professor, I like the Scrabble idea, great food for thought. Our performing persona is more on the humorous side.

I think you should do what you know you are good at if they are paying you Smile
