I used to make the expanding bill for Paul Diamond many years ago. If I were making them today I would have them printed on the face in large black letters with: "IRS BILL"! or "TAX BILL".

Your patter could center around how you finally thought you had figured out how to beat inflation and all the rising taxes with your six special bills that never seemed to run out. Unfortunately one day one of Uncle Sam's agents showed up at your front door with a bill for was a giant "TAX BILL".

Just a thought about a way to introduce the Jumbo Bill into a routine of six bill repeat and the Jumbo Tax Bill should get a good response at the end. If you have a PC with a printer you could print "TAX BILL" on any Jumbo Bills you have access to. I see them in the "Dollar Tree" all the time. And everything is just a dollar there.

You might even work the patter along the lines of your wife's habit of buying everything at the "Dollar Tree", so you gave her the six special bills to go shopping with at the "Dollar Tree". Unfortunately she spent more at the "Dollar Tree" than you reported as income, so an IRS Agent showed up at your door demanding to see one of the bills. You folded it up, handed it to him, and when he opened it "voila" he presented you with a "GIANT BILL FOR BACK TAXES".

Just a few rambling thoughts. Good luck to you.

What exactly is a "Korean Box"? Who sells (or sold) them?


I will quote the part of the post you missed, "a very cheap cardboard Jap Box called the Korean Box".

Jeff Hobson also shows a great way to make bills vanish in his lectures. He has also box that can be folded flat. He does some card manipulation, dropping the cards into the box and in the end, he puts his hand thru the box and shows that it doesn't have bottom and it is empty. It is in his newest live DVD as well.

I have used it to end my routine that came pretty much straight from Mark Wilson book. However, I am still just practising it and finding right lines and jokes to go with it and I havent performed it yet so I cant really say how it plays. But it fits the pattern on Mark Wilson routine about ordering this magic book that teaches you how to spend 3 out of 6 dollars and still have 6 dollars. It just can happen so the bills vanish.

Since my earlier posts on this, I have switched to Bill Abbott's 5 Card Opener. The real value of his routine is it makes a great opener. It gets people involved, and yelling "that's amazing", I kid you not.

The first time I presented this was at an assisted living home. Many of the residents were not at the top of their game, cognitively, but that didn't matter (I was initially apprehensive about doing this for them, thinking that I would look foolish - no, I was surprised; they responded far more than I expected).

To make clear, Bill provides well made cards for the effect(jumbo and regular), but you could use your regular 6 bill repeat props with no problems.

The value of his product is the routine. Bill's presentation gives you a way to get everyone in the audience involved, and sets you up for good responses for the rest of your show.

and, instead of a whimper of a finish, the presentation builds and builds, and the audience responds and responds.
