Topic: Routines with Latex doves
Message: Posted by: iamslow (Apr 6, 2003 04:15PM)
Does anyone know of maybe a comedy routine that involves a latex dove?? I saw someone at my local magic shop produce a Norm Neilsen dove and did I ever get fooled into thinking it was alive. That convinced me to buy one since I have always loved watching dove workers do their thing. If anyone knows a routine instead of just producing the dove can you please send me in the right direction? thanks!

Effect: magician takes a live bird and puts it in a paper bag, blows air into the bag, and pops the bag showing that the bird disappeared.

Setup: get a paperbag and put bird feathers in the bottom of the bag. Then cut the bottom of another bag and glue it a few inches above the feathers so when the bag is shown to the audience it appears empty. Then place the bird into the bag (not the real one), blow air into it, pop the bag (feathers will fall to the floor) and then crumble the bag into a small wad and toss over your shoulder. It's just an idea I added onto.

That's a cool idea, but I wouldn't want the kids in the audience to freak out. Thanks for the input, it just opened up some ideas. :cheers:

Never though about the kids freaking out. Sorry. :rotf:

Tony Clark shows how to do this same thing without scaring the children. Instead of immediately popping it, first turn the bag over showing it "empty" then prove the fact by crumpling it up.

This topic is already being discussed. You might try adding to that ongoing thread rather than open a new one.
