Thank you Wally! Alan is a great guy- go to the Alan Kazam website and shoot him an email, I'm sure he'll respond asap. Alan is a full time magician- does restaurants, parties, stage shows, everything.

Hi Wally -

The rope trick you're mentioning is an older trick. Sometimes called 2-to-1 rope, the rope with 4 ends, etc. I learned how to make my own years ago from instructions in a magic book (I can't remember which book). I made my own in the 1970s or 1980s.

Duane Laflin even sells a DVD on the trick, which he calls "The Illusion of One Rope":

He's also performed the trick on some of his other DVDs, because I remember watching it recently. (I was watching a bunch of Duane Laflin DVDs back in July and August, when I was recovering from surgery.)

P.S. I think you're right, Wally. The Alan Kazam on the YouTube clip is not the one from Michigan (I know him, too). There are a few performers out there with that stage name.

Www.stevensmagic.com (and other dealers I presume) sell for $65 the master class DVD "The Nightmare 3-2-1 Rope Trick" by Nick Lewin. Not sure if that is the effect or not...

From the video clip on Steven's website, I'm assuming that Nick Lewin's DVD is about the Professor's Nightmare (and variations on that), which is a totally different rope trick. MagicBus (Roger), did you actually watch the YouTube clip that Wally linked to? You have responded with comments about a different Alan Kazam and comments about a different rope trick. It's really a short video clip. Less than a minute to watch.

Whoops, am I bad. I did not realize this video clip was not of Michigan's Alan Kazam. Yikes, small world. Anyway, I am not sure about the origin of this particular rope routine - enjoyed it though... Brad Brown's rope routine on Now That's Magic #1 at www.ChristianMagician.org is long multi-phase routine if I recall and very well done. I myself know virtually nothing about rope tricks other than the routines performed now seem so much better than tthe simple cut and restored ones I saw as a kid at Abbott's.
