Hi All,

A magical bit, completely unexpected:

Remind you of any similar "routines"?

I recall seeing a Derren Brown episode where he took the viewers on a tour of juggling barmen in Thailand and Korea. Some magic was tossed into the bar performances.

This is the first time I have encountered a street food vendor performing unexpected magic with such finesse.

The audible striking of his ice cream dispenser on metal containers is similar in tonal construction to a street Cups and Balls performer striking Cups with a wand.

Bill Palmer, Sir, what do you think of this video? I recall you once posted about routines using Ice Cream cones as Cups...

That was HILARIOUS! Thanks for sharing it. I've never really integrated these types of "moves" into my routines, but this video has me thinking it might be a good idea! Especially if you can get it as smooth as this guy.

Elaine & I saw him "live" when we visited Istanbul. He is a GREAT entertainer.

Ive seen a few of these guys, they travel the festivals in Germany. They all the do the same moves, they are great. The German festivals hire them to give away free ice cream and do their 'shows' whilst doing it.
