Topic: Comedy things like "the mouse"
Message: Posted by: redstreak (Sep 30, 2003 12:17AM)
I recently got the Five Minutes with a Pocket Handkercheif video and have been getting tons of laughs from the mouse part. I was wondering if there are any other videos or books that teach that kind of stuff? Not necessarily magical, just sort of comedy that isn't all talking. I heard from a friend that Johhny Depp did some stuff like that in one of his movies.

I actually found a great realistic mouse as a cat toy at a dollar store. Bought a couple of them so I always have one.
I don't use it like a puppet as it is solid. It runs around my fingers etc like a really small spring animal without the spring.

Try Larry Mahan's book Spring Animals your friends for life, there is a section about non spring mouse.

Or Bill Tarr's book 101 Easy-to-Do Magic Tricks, there is a page about how to make a handkercheif mouse.

Hope that help.

I keep Dan Garrett's Judy mouse in my pocket looks very real and is a lot of fun.
Do you do the towel chicken? You may want to look for a book on clown gags and comedy props.
