I am partial to the self-folding bill and the bill float. The 5-1 transpo is also a killer.
Message: Posted by: Geoff Williams (Mar 11, 2002 10:01AM)
In my opinion, I have found Mark Jenest's "Billoon" routine to be a killer. This is the effect:

A balloon is inflated and tied. A borrowed bill is signed and THEN handed to the magician (who pockets it, as a gag).

The spectator picks up the balloon and shakes it (hearing something bouncing around inside of it).

The spectator is given, by the magician, a pin with which they pop the balloon. Their signed bill falls out of it onto the floor.

That IS a killer effect. I do it as a card to balloon.

Doesn't that one have really nasty angle problems?

Personally, I like the effect where a spectator takes a dollar bill from their wallet or purse and seals it in an envelope.

The mentalist proceeds to 'read' the serial number and writes it on a pad.

When the envelope is cut open, it is found that the mentalist was absolutely correct! :devilish:

Let’s see, there are several bill effects that I perform. Three bill effects that I perform the most often are:

1. BeSwitched–this is a 1-5 bill transposition. Frankly, I perform both this version (sold by Al Cohen) and the Roger Klause version. Of the two, I tend to perform this version more often. More of the bill is visible (1/4 rather than 1/8 in the Klause version). You do have to cover the gimmick with the other bill crosswise to show both sides. I carry both and have done one as the follow-up for those who want to see it repeated. Two different methods.

2. Hornswoggled Again-The Ron Bauer version of the short changed routine (this is usually paired with my three shell game or Loopy loop and Monte routine for a sequence of protect yourself from cheats “lecture”.

3. The Suspended Dollar–Mike Bornstein’s, this is where a borrowed bill that sticks to another bill by one tip of the corner. The first bill is held by the fingertips and is parallel to the floor. The second bill is lying on top of the first and is moved slowly to the end until there is only a little tip of the bill touching the first bill. This is usually done as an impromptu stunt, and then I go into BeSwitched.

I also perform the Jenest Bill in Balloon bit, The Paul Chosse’s Bar Bill Stunt (Bauer), and the torn and restored, signed bill fairly often but not as often as the three already mentioned.

Finally, my all time favorite folding money trick, it simply is the signed bill to lemon. Messy as it is, it is central to my stand-up act.
Message: Posted by: BroDavid (Mar 12, 2002 10:18PM)
I love the McBride torn and restored sequence from his two video set!

It is torn, restored, torn and torn again, and then restored - except for a tiny corner that "accidently" falls to the table.

And then when you visibly add that last little corner to the bill, the audience roars!!

It is climax upon climax.

Other than that, Dan Harlan's Financial Attraction (floating a Dollar bill with a clever technique) never fails to get a good response. But lighting can be an issue if you aren't careful.

I use one effect from Paul Cummins' video "Up In Smoke" called Top Billing.

It is a Matrix effect that uses bills for the coin cover instead of cards.

It is a really nice handling, and is pure money, so you don't need to carry cards around to do it.

It is actually the only Matrix routine I routinely use.

Message: Posted by: Geoff Williams (Mar 13, 2002 02:22PM)
As an impromptu effect, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of the following classic:

Two bills are laid at right angles to each other and back to back.

They are rolled up on the table and, when unrolled, are shown now to be face to face.

With the proper build up and theatre, it is a shocker (even for adults). I'm constantly amazed by how well this plays.
Message: Posted by: The Pianoman (Mar 13, 2002 02:39PM)
I agree with Geoff, I took it straight out of Mark Wilsons book.

It seemed a bit flimsy to me until I performed it a few times... and as you say it really gets a great reaction.

I like the fact it's gimmickless too!!

Misled is a very strong effect but quite angly. I use an extra piece of paper the size of the bill as a cover. You can show the penetration from the front, show the back which is hidden under the paper and see the pencil penetrated through the paper.

Try it.

Misled is also one of my favorite bill effects, but has everyone forgotten the floating bill? This probably gets more gasps of disbelief for me than any other trick I do. Jeff, that sounds like a neat idea to make Misled a little more "angle-proof". I'll have to give it a try.

Long list here: Misled, Pen thru Dollar, Floating bill, etc. I have one thing to mention on the $100 bill switch... and I know some will disagree. I did this for awhile and it got a strong reaction, but I could feel that most just knew I had switched it because there was no way I could create a 100 bill. Now I do Mismade because at the end I have seen several people try to refold it back to that odd looking way. They actually believe it was some sort of weird origami fold so they try to recreate it... no switch is suspected. Check out some of Jay Sankey's lectures on that same topic. He agrees with doing something strange to the bill and not switching it for another denomination. Also, you can get the Ammar tapes on Money magic and they are full of great bill tricks.

The most impacting paper money effect I believe is Hundy 500 by far. After performing it countless times, 98% of the people really think that I can change five $1 bills into five $100 bills. They inevitably ask if they can give me one of their $1 bills to change. For those who actually perform it using $1 and $100 bills, I believe that they would agree that no matter what card and coin tricks they performed for the group, Hundy 500 prolly got one of the biggest reactions, most talked about a month later, and believing in real magic. Sure it is a self working trick with no skill involved, but who cares?!?!!?! The reactions from the spectators is all that really matters!

It'd hard to beat Gary Kurtz's routine called "Counterfeit". He published an abbreviated version in the Canadian issue of Genii, and the full routine in "Meeting at the Summit".

You borrow a $20, it turns into an obviously homemade counterfeit $100. But the serial number matches the original bill's, and the spectator's initals are on it, too.

A miracle effect with a method that makes you smile inside. Hard to beat.
Message: Posted by: 5CardStud (Jul 18, 2005 05:27AM)
Mr Kam, I couldn't agree more, but than again, everything Gary ever created was pure genius so its not fair to quote his effect :D

Personally, I always found the £100 Bill switch, changing an English £10 or £20 into $1 Bill to work great for myself. I make a big thing about the spectator being and International Play Boy and everyone has good fun. Some people choose to keep the $1, some people choose to get there money back. Either way is fine for me. I also find a lot of people will hand the money back to you as a tip, I personally don't take them but if I did I would do this effect a lot more.

I perform several bill effects at the bar but the one that gets the best reactions as incredible as it may seem is bill to matchbook. It never ceases to amaze me how this simple transformation is the one a lay audience likes the most.

I believe what also gets them is I work in short sleeves so obviously that cancels out any “up the sleeves theory” they had in their mind. It has been my experience that spectators tend to like transformations better than anything else.
Message: Posted by: roi_tau (Jul 22, 2005 05:07AM)
Beside the regular bill switch I think one of the most great effects is Richard Sander's Slow burn.
In this effect you show 4 sheets of paper and when you wave your hand over them they change visually to 4 10$ bills
I saw many of you talk about the 1-5 effect and Im not sure if this is the one but I did Slow burn many times(Especially in Thailand) and it was a great sucsess.

I once did it in a local bank when I wanted to change dollars with Bahats so I gave the dealer 4 sheets of paper(can be examined!!) and changed it to 40$

Have fun!

I seen bills float, and seen bills change, and I agree with some comments already made that seeing a $1 change to a $100 doesn't make a lot of sense to people -- otherwise, you'd do it all the time! However, I also believe that it's the patter and presentation that makes the trick.

As is evident from some of the replies, some simple effects have been quite good for some of our magi. I can't say I'm good at it, but I try to spend more time on patter and presentation than I do with handling. Of course, doing the sleight work always leaves me with a person sense of satisfaction, but if all my hand work is done to make something NOT be seen while looking natural, don't I want to spend time on presentation?!

So, for me, the best trick I've seen with bills comes from Ammar when he borrows two, and ends up producing them from peanuts. His presentation is fabulous, in my opinion. But, it makes no sense! With that said, someone recently put up a link to a different effect from our Asian colleagues where the magician riped a bill, changed the ripped bill to a chewing gum wrapper, wrapped up his gum, produced a full stick of gum, then a full pack of gum which was opened. The torn bill inside matched the corner. He proceeded to tape it all up, then "heal" it and hand it back. I didn't understand a word, but the presentation left me, well, speechless. I wish I knew where to study that effect!

There's no such thing as a money (or any) effect that's most impacting because a particular effect's impact is dependent in large part on the particular magician who's performing that effect.

I enjoy doing Ron Bauer's Hornswaggled Again. Have carried this with me everyday for about 5 years now.

With that being said, the most impacting paper money routine I have witnessed was just recently at the Columbus Magi-Fest. Watching Tim Conover do his version of Fred Kaps Cash was beyond awesome. I don't know why I let it get to me so bad, but a kid walking out in front of me who claimed that he had never heard of Conover and he was just doing a version of Wilson's Hundy 500, I swear I had the urge to put him into the wall. Wilson has nothing on Tim Conover.

In this routine, Tim pulls out 6 $1 bills and lets the spectators see them and touch them front and back. They instantly change into $5 bills examined front and back and then $10 bills. He asks them to name any denomination and he is able to change them into $20, $50 and $100 bills. Each time, he flashes front and back and allows them to touch the bills.

Awesome.

The only bill bit I do I found on a Jim Pace video. Basically, you fold a dollar bill around a piece of paper while it is in view the whole time, and then stab through the bill and paper with pretty much anything. A pen, a knife, whatever is handy. Then undo the folds and show that the paper has been damaged, but the bill hasn't. Very simple to do, but incredibly strong, especially with a borrowed pen or pocket knife.

Dear Larry:

I could be totally wrong about this, but I was under the impression that the idea of using bills instead of cards (for Victor's trick), was originated by Gene Gordon (in his "Dizzy Dollar" routine). Perhaps somebody could enlighten me on the provenance of this wonderful effect.

1.My version of Roger Klause's 'Cheque' page 65 "Roger Klause in Concert"

2.'Beswitched'by George Hample with an easy switch at the end so the bills can be examined if desired.

3.My own 'Dollar OffeRing'.Can be found in "The Magic Menu" The First Five Years.This is based on Jerry Adrus'"Dollar Delusion",where he produces a silver dollar from a fairly displayed dollar bill.
In my effect at the end,when the spectator inserts her finger in the rolled up bill tube,and then removes it,a ring made out of a dollar bill is on her finger.I usually do this for Birthday girls/ladies.It goes over Real Big!

With that being said, the most impacting paper money routine I have witnessed was just recently at the Columbus Magi-Fest. Watching Tim Conover do his version of Fred Kaps Cash was beyond awesome. I don't know why I let it get to me so bad, but a kid walking out in front of me who claimed that he had never heard of Conover and he was just doing a version of Wilson's Hundy 500, I swear I had the urge to put him into the wall. Wilson has nothing on Tim Conover.

In this routine, Tim pulls out 6 $1 bills and lets the spectators see them and touch them front and back. They instantly change into $5 bills examined front and back and then $10 bills. He asks them to name any denomination and he is able to change them into $20, $50 and $100 bills. Each time, he flashes front and back and allows them to touch the bills.

Awesome.

What's the name of Tim's trick of changing the 6 $1 bills multiple times? Where can I buy this?

I really like John Cornelius' "Borrowed Bill Routine." A great 4-6 minutes worth of magic! Don't know if it is still available but it is GREAT!

There's Angel Cake from True Astonishments. Bill Change in the spectator's hands and they keep the larger denomination bill and it doesn't cost you anything. One more time--borrowed spectator's bill changes int heir hand to a larger denomination bill and they keep it and it doesn't cost the magician anything. Doesn't get much better than that.

I've got to throw in 2-dollar window. Great for making change. I learned it off Jay Noblezada's "Money".

I hesitate to mention it because it is SO strong but I love Ryu Susato's Tokyo Penetration. I've been doing it for many years. I have my own handling which my partner Tom Allen and I (mostly me by MY recollection) worked out since I've never seen anyone else do it.
Google shows another trick by that name.

I'm recently having fun with Pat Page's Easy Money for Parlor. Money effects go over very well in this economy.

"Bill Tear" by Tom Mullica is the only paper money effect I do. It can be found on the IMS DVD with Mullica on it.


A great [u]torn and not restored[/u] bill trick. Presentation and personality are a must for something like this.

I love to do Fraud, and a quickie by Sankey that is a T&R... I also love the Mark Wilson T&R in CCIM- the effect with the Chapstick...

The 5 to 1 bill transpo gets one of the best reactions for me.
