I am working on a new routine for my Magic Game Show. I need help with some funny prizes like "a washer and dryer" and I give them a metal washer and a paper towel. Another would be " a diamond pin" and I give them a dime and a safety pin. You get the idea. Can anyone think of anymore that I can use?--Rev Bill

I have no idea where they came from. Been around for years. Vaudeville maybe?

In my show, I used to give out a spork and a bag of non-matching socks. It's a pretty funny bit, and the audience always loved it.

Cody Fisher has a routine where he gives out an AOL CD. As all of you know, they're FREE and are located in almost EVERY post office- at least here anyway..

I performed Osterlind's version of Bank Night once and threw in some gag gifts. One was an expired 25% off coupon to JCPenney's. Another was an already scratched off lottery ticket. I think I had a gift card that had already been used too. I ended up winning the $100, but I gave everyone a legitimate lottery ticket, similar to Osterlind, for their help.

In my mobile DJ Shows, I used to give away BIIIG MONEY..it was a hundred dollar bill that I'd blown up to a HUGE SIZE..maybe a foot long... I had my phone number in the serial number spot on one side, my company name in the serial number on the other side, and my picture in the center.

While I was typing I also thought about ...You would win a crisp clean 100 dollar bill... and give them a crisp clean bill for 100 dollars for "services rendered". I dunno, just rolling around ideas.

How about "a hundred bucks" and give them 100 small pictures of male deer?

After a routine using an assistant I offer them a prize, A 200 peice breakfast set and pull out a smaal box of cereal. After they Groan I say "well, how about a 500 peice breakfast set?" I then drop the box on the floor and smash it with my foot, Always gets a good laugh.

I performed a version of Bank Night a month or so ago and gave out some of the prizes that were suggested here. I'll try to get a clip of it up if anyone is interested. I think the prizes I gave away were:

A small diamond (2 of diamonds)
A Limited Edition 1964 Copper Engraving of Abraham Lincoln (penny)
Washer and dryer

The grand prize was an iPhone. I took a toy cell phone and glued a big eye to it. I also had the AOL CD as a backup. I searched high and low for a toy Yoda, but couldn't find one anywhere.

The AOL CD is actually a pretty funny idea. I have used that many times myself cause in my industry we get a ton of them. Never fails to get a laugh.

Eric,

Thanks for following up with us and I'm glad we were all able to help you. I'd definitely like to see the video. Looks like it was a real funny routine. As for "Toy Yodas", here are few links directing you to them:
