What effect do you currently perform, that gets a really good audience pop? Also, what effect don't you have that you wish you could perform. I'm working on a study for something and was curious.

The piece that has set us apart and has guaranteed a standing ovation, has been Kristen Johnson doing her Water Torture Cell. It is a real crowd pleaser. With Kristen performing it in total view the entire time with no cover, the audience really appreciates what is going on. The fact that she averages 1:47 undewater on one breath doesn't hurt either.

The piece we wish we had is the opener we have been working on that is an effect similar to Copperfields One, but different in presentation as well as method.
It has been a project that is long overdo. But we have been on the road for quite awhile this year...and it seems when we are home we are busy with other aspects of life...painting the house, vacation, etc.

Great question....we are looking forward to seeing what others have had great success with.

Thanks for the post Kevin. I'm curious as well. Sounds like the Water Cell is working well for you. Congrats!


P.S. I figure I'd mention my POP effect. It would have to be my Dancing Hank routine. Yeah, go figure. In a show filled with large scale effects, this one takes the audience prize everytime. Just goes to show how stage presence can really MAKE an effect. I won Abbott's adult competition with it back in '98.

The one effect that the audience always talks about after the show is Multiplying Bottles. I float a girl in the air but Mutiplying Bottles is what they talk about...go figure.

Effect I wish I could perform...Thin Sawing in Half. It's one of my favorites.

Gamolo Levitation has been earning quite a load of applause. I wish I could do the Windshear but I hear I have to loose a few inches.

The one effect that almost every illusionist LOVES is probably David Copperfield's Flying illusion. It leaves the audience with a sense of real magic.

Gamolo levitation does it for me too.

MikeDes, which multiplying bottle routine do you use?

Pierced on lance has been our crowdpleaser.
one of the cabaret are singing a Elton John, get
pierced and then starts to " live" and sing -
worked on the routine a while - started to work really good
when we sold it as a balance act.
