Message: Posted by: MichaelOzMagic (Mar 12, 2009 10:46AM)
Hey everyone I was wondering if you guys knew any funny lines for a rope escape. My version is where I have someone come up on stage and tie me up. Then I have the person that tied me up pick another peron from the audience. I have the person that tied me up stand right next to me and the peron that he picked riase up a curtain for thirty seconds and when the thirty seconds is up he drops it and the rope is tied around the other person in the same exact way. I was wondering how ccould you make that funny. Any queston please coment or PM me. Thanks magician for life.

Did I ever tell you about the time I was doing a Company/family picnic and I invited a lady from the audience up to help me out for my famous escape trick. When I told her she would be tying me up with rope she immediately belted out, "YES!!!! BONDAGE!!!"

ETC: I used to accidentally drop scissors out my sleeve before I really got into the trick and act embarrassed.

I remember seeing a very funny version with Harry Anderson and his wife, do the rope escape versus straight jacket. (Reno, Nevada around early 1980's)

Whenever magicians light themselves on fire I laugh, you could try that.

The Harry Anderson version referred to by Harris and performed on Satuirday Night Live is in Harry's book published by Caveney's Magic Words.
