Topic: Appearing Objects
Message: Posted by: Christopher (Sep 20, 2018 12:41AM)
I'm looking to add more to a comedy routine I currently do. I casually remove objects from my pockets throughout my act until my table is piled high with items. I now produce various sponge objects (Donuts, eggs, fruit, cake, etc) Candle, Multiplying bottles,Pool stick, cane. I'm trying to find other various objects to produce. I've done this for years and want to take the gag to a crazy new level.

Can anyone recommend a decent birdcage that could be hidden in my coat/tailcoat?
Has anyone used the appearing coke bottles https://www.hocus-pocus.com/magicshop/product_detail.cfm?item=42164 (I would rather have water bottles appear but can't find them)

I would appreciate any other recommendations

How are you making these things appear?
Are you using cover of some kind or just pulling them out of your pockets?

I do both.

Look for a video of the late A. ROBBINS, "THE BANANA MAN".

This isn't "Secret Sessions" so I'll PM the suggestions.

The Banana Man isnít really my style. My character is much more subtle. This all comes from a television interview I did years ago. As I was being interviewed, the desk slowly became more and more cluttered over time with items I just casually put aside from my jacket and pockets. This evolved over time to be a nervous character that starts with a bare minimum on stage and in the course of doing a routine, ends up with my roll on table just piled with items I removed while retrieving a marker, cards, etc. now that I wear tails as part of my character, Iím looking to add a few more items.

Remind me not to offer you anymore suggestions. It's courteous to express thanks.

Another idea that popped into my head over in the prop management section of the forum - custom Kydex holsters.
