I do either David Roths 1 coin routine or rubberband magic including but not limitted to Crazy Man's Handcuffs.

I'd go with Crazy Man's Handcuffs. I can't think of a better all around impromptu effect. No gimmicks required, can be done surrounded, in any situation, easy to carry at all times, always reliable. Plus, noone can figure this one out. I remember watching the Copperfield special where he did this, before I learned the method, over and over, playing with 2 rubber bands, and never being able to figure out what the heck he did. I played with those bands over a year and no luck! Finally I got Ammar's Classic Renditions Vol. #2, and learned the effect. This effect has it all.

I do a "Flying coing" where I tell the spectator that I've taught a coin to fly. Then I say "Fly down" and drop the coin. I say, "See it listened.

I then tell the spectator that the coin can fly up, and do a muscle pass. It works with a half dollar or a silver dollar.

An amusing effect that can be done with absolutely no props - even in the nude - is the old "Animal Magnetism", as I call it. Ask someone to hold out his or her palm, face up, which you stroke several times with a palm of your hand, asking the person to resist the downward pressure of your strokes. Maintaining your stroking rhythm, suddenly stop after 5 or 6 strokes, with your palm held 3 to 5 inches (7.5 to 12.5 cm) parallel above the spectator's and her or his hand, due to a conditioned reflex, will rise up and touch your hand, as if by magnetism. Not great magic, but it's fun and is completely impromptu.

I use a fun or some would say scary voodoo routine which strings together

Blister effect - to identify a person
Ash or lipstick through hand - to test
Coupe de gras - pulse stop - to check their power

All impromptu with a logical flow which uses a lot of facts about voodoo (Vodun) and is introduced via recent advances in science and human genome markers Smile

Thinking of enhancing it using a photo lens brush to blow out a candle just wish I could exstinguish a candle via an impromptu method ???
catch you later

Try the Wonderland Bill. Easy to carry, simple to perform, repeatable and fun for the spectators. It is not magic but is magical.

One of my favorites is "Perigrinating Halves" from Bobo's Modern Coin Magic. I always carry the coins plus the sophisticated piece of magical technology that makes it all possible. My other Always Carry piece is "Be Switched," the transposition of a $5 and $1 bill.

I find I get great reactions with a coin force, using 5 different coins.
I leave the prediction face down before I start naming the coin, and either heads or tails.
So simple, yet gets me great reactions.

I carry a few cards in my wallet and perform Gemini Twins or Dr. Daley's Last Trick.

Slydini's Flight of the Paper Balls is an excellent routine for a group setting. A T&R napkin with the sucker finish can be set up in seconds. A bill switch without a TT can come in very handy, especially if seated at a table.

Printing your business card doing a paddle handling is good and makes them remember you. Equivoque, if done well, looks like the real thing, no question about it. And any of the Georgia Magnet routines (which use only your body) can be completely baffling.

Just some additions.

I have rubeer bands for crazy mans handcuffs. There is always paper around so I do spongeballs routine using paper instead. Someone always has a coin, quick coin routine is easy to do. Just to name a few possibilities.

Hands down "The Ring Thing" by Garrett is probably the most visually appealling impromptu quick effect

I always carry Kollosal Killer in my wallet. There are a number of different ways it can be presented (card trick, mentalism) and it always kills. PK time is great as well.

Colins across in the spectators handsif I have to borrow the props. CMH variation. Any type of billet mentalism stuff. the banachek or osterlind watch routines are also killer.
