I don't think Jeff teaches the routine he does in his show anywhere, but his manipulation tapes (Coins, Balls and Thimbles) has some great stuff on the Miser's Dream.

I do the misers with strictly sleight of hand and really easy hand and bucket loads with non gimmicked bucket. I use about 20 kenedy half dollars. At the end I begin to take a bow, contort my face and spit a coin into the bucket directly from my mouth...begin to take a bow again and spit another...begin to take a bow again and get look of shock and concern on my face as though I swallowed the coin. I then hold the bucket under my butt, grimace and produce the last coin. I then take a bow and ask the spectator that flipped one from the air into the bucket if they'd like to fish around for the coin they produced. No takers yet. Yes, it's a comedy act.

I once lined up a set of 5 child volunteers and produced a coin from each one separately, except the third one. I checked his shirt pocket and found nothing. After I finished with #5 I came back to him, had him reach HIS hand into his shirt pocket, and guess what was there.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me there approach to the Misers dream that makes it unique to themselves and to the audiences they perform it for. I see so many people doing the misers dream exactly identical to everyone else and there just seems like there has got to be a lot more creative routines and ideas that could stem off from the misers dream to make it even more original or unique and different.

Does Jeff McBride teach his version on one of his DVD's?


I think the routine Jeff teaches in his World Class Manipulaton DVDs is not his usual routine but it's a pretty good routine to start with.
