Topic: Cup and Ball Routine: Finger Flickers
Message: Posted by: restlessplots (Sep 13, 2003 09:46AM)
In one of the back postings, it was brought to my attention, there is mention that the Finger flickers from Germany do a C & B Routine based on a Sex Education class, anyone know if this routine is in print and or if it is available? I am currently trying working on something similiar and would love to see theirs.

Thanks

Do a search on Google and you might find a website of theirs and contact them from there.
OK, I did your work for you...

I can't recall how much of it was actually explained, but the routine was performed by Helge Thun (I think) on their DVD.

Helge's C&B routine is hilarious! He plays the part of a sex education teacher, and uses the cups to illustrate how babies are made. Talk about original! Obviously strictly for adults though. The whole routine isn't explained on the video because the moves he uses are standard and can be found in other sources. They DO however teach the final load in the routine, in which a spectator is holding the cup, and the final load still appears inside!

Also on this video check out one of the FISM acts included (performance only). I forgot the name of the magician who does it, but the routine is called "Character Cups & Balls". Simply another brilliant presentation.

I totally agree with you, Frank. Two wonderful routines, very creative.

Just for the record: "Character Cups & Balls" is performed by "Flicking Finger" Gaston.

I prefer Gaston's routine. It could be performed for a wider audience. Another point is that it is really expandable and there are a lot of icons to choose from.
