Hi to all.

I am stuck for ideas.

I open my cabaret show with knife in arm and leave the stage and move amongst the guests with the knife in my arm (lots of blood) - I find this "Gets their attention" - normally I then go into "Yellow bandana". So its a mixture of wow magic and comedy - with about 10 mins stand up in the middle.

I am looking for an effect along the same lines as knife in arm -(but not a box trick like candle throught arm).

Any suggestions lease.

Paula,

If it is a shock trick that goes wrong, see Hank Moorehouse about his steel trap. It can even be played as comedy. Do be careful. The trap is very real. (It is just chrome plated for stage.)

1 .Needle through arm.
2. The "living hand" illusion (gets attention).
3. spike through tongue.
4. head off shoulders.

Also come to mind.

Itay.

Paula,

Did you ever find a solution for this?

There was a company in the Carolinas (USA) called Atlantic Stage. It sells stage props used by stuntmen in movie making. (I don't find them in my address file anymore.) But stunt (breaking) glass bottles, etc. may give you ideas you can use. They also have many costume items that are hard to find.
