The Show

Balloon Swallow– 2ft modelling balloon is swallowed whole and then reproduced

Twisted arms– audience participation trick ( audience follow the magicians instructions but are unable to complete the instructions as the magician appears to perform an impossible feat)

Bill in orange– Spectators bank note is signed. Magician changes singed bank note into a foreign denomination. Magician then produces an orange from his shoe. Magician cuts open the orange to reveal spectators signed bank note.

Appering cane–  Silk magically turns into a 3ft gentleman’s cane.

Signed Card In wine bottle- Spectator is asked to select a playing card and sign it. The card is then lost into the deck and all cards are given back to the spectator. The magician attempts to find the card but fails. Magician thanks the spectator for helping and presents a gift wrapped bottle of wine, he unwraps this, showing the signed card inside the wine bottle.

Win some money– Magician introduces 5 envelopes and informs the audience that one of them contains a £50 note. Selected members of the audience are allowed to freely choose any envelope. After these have been chosen, the magician is left with but one envelope. (Which he offers to swap) once the audience are happy with their selection the magician reveals he still has the £50 note.

Spike- Five unmarked wooden blocks are displayed and one four inch steel spike. The spectator is then instructed to cover all the wooden blocks with Styrofoam cups. The performer walks over to the five cups and instantly smashes his hand on four, leaving the cup with the spike underneath untouched! An incredible feat of mentalism!

Drink in shoe – Magician calls the “Practical Joke Hotline” on speaker phone to teach the audience a funny gag.  Magician makes a mistake following the instructions and inadvertently fills a spectators shoe with a bottle of liquid.
