Topic: Mamma Mia C&B - Aldo Colombini
Message: Posted by: pabloinus (Oct 19, 2008 06:22PM)
I have the book Mamma mia from Colombini, where he explains a C&B routines using 3 pompom of different colors. It is similar to the one in Youtube, however in the book he uses a move where instead of the Pom Pom going through the cups and the table one of the Cups goes through the table.
2 Questions
a) Do you know if there is a video of this particular routine (including the cup going through the table)
b) Is this routine similar to the one used by Colombini when he won the FISM and is written by Lewis Ganson?

Thank you ... Pablo

I remember Aldo saying somewhere that his FISM routine was completely different from his commercial routine. It's (apparently) three identical balls in a complex, fast paced designed to fool magicians. It also has no final loads.

Aldo Colombini did publish a cups and balls routine on his video and then DVD: "Mamma Mia Magic." It's been so long since I looked at this, I can't recall much about the routine. I do remember some through the table work.

I looked at some descriptions of the DVD and none really describe the routine.

You can read my observations of the DVD here:

Perhaps it's best to contact Aldo directly to answer your question.
