We have so many choices such as:

Bill to marker
Bill to lemon or some other fruit
Billoon ( bill to balloon )
Bill to mystery type box

So with all these to choose from which is your favourite and why ?
Adding to the question is one stronger than the other ?

These are all strong in different situations. Billoon is my favorite. Bill to marker is also good. Billoon is really good for a penetration style effect and is great if you can pop a balloon which you can't everywhere. Bill to marker is great for almost every situation though.

I'm also a big fan of Billoon although I don't present it as a penetration effct personally. I'm not sure why but I think it seems to play for bigger audiences and has more of a theatrical feel to it, however it is messy and obviously there are some environments where it's not suitable especially if people are eating.

I use a Bill to Lemon as a main item in my corporate shows but the Lemon is in a bag inside a box in full view during the show..plays very strong
Based loosely on a Doc Eason bar routine.

In a party or one show setting I really like bill to balloon. I place the balloon as far away as possible, but within eyesight.

Just got an idea. Use a small manila envelope. about card size. put a bill in it, vanish both somehow with a switch. or burn it. don't really burn it without refunding it hehe . w a "lope switch.

Then reproduce the envelope and signed bill from any one's wallet. Kaylor's any card from any wallet. sounds sweet.

Not really sure what you mean by messy. Been doing it for years in every kind of venue and it goes over great.

Why can't you pop a balloon.

Steve, there are several reasons why a balloon should not be burst in a restaurant or around people. Balloons can explode into several pieces, and you have not control where they will land. Also if you use your mouth or let a spectator blow up the balloon, spit enters in most cases during the process. All you need is one upset customer and you no longer have a job.

So use quality balloons and use a hand pump to inflate the balloon. Still if you don't use them in a timely manner, they do get old, and could still land on people and if in a restaurant, can land in people food.

My advice is to use the Bill to impossible location that you personally like. They are all good, and some depend on wearing certain styles of clothing.
