I won't give away any of his lines, but Dick Stoner's Arm Chopper routine is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life. He's an amazing performer.

Pull the rubber hand out of the bucket...."Last week's victim"............

Hes a great performer but rather disarming.

The last show cost the guy an arm and a leg.

Some of you may find this trick somewhat "humerous" (too over the top??)

I call this trick "A Farewell To Arms"

Hope it helps!

Counting down to the chop...
One, two, three weeks ago I performed this at the birthday party of boy called Lefty. He was right-handed too.

1! 2! . . are you scared? Don't worry, this usually works. Even on the box it said 75% chance of success, so don't worry. Okay here we go 1! 2! . . . are you sure you aren't scared, cause you really look like it to me. Okay, so where were we? Ah yes 1! 2!. . are you really really really sure you aren't scared? Cause I got a vial of these just in case {take out a huge pillbox with VALIUM written on it} Oh you don't want the pills don't worry {in a hush hush sort of tone} any policemen around cause in that case I brought one of these as well {and I take a large imitation joint out} afterwards I proceed with the trick. And after I'm done I say to them are you sure you don't want to light this {refering to the joint} I'm sure you will be laughing and fooling around than most of the people

the end

I have a paper back booklet by Walt Hudson and Mark Walker called Chopper Capers. It's full of tips, gags, and routines for chopper effects. It is very good. It was printed in 1978 and is out of print. Maybe you could find one on ebay.

Do you have weapons? We will have to disarm you then.

After we take of the left arm, you should be all right (alright).

Would you be stumped if I said I could take your arm off?

I have to Hand it to you, you are brave.

If this does not work, I am afraid you will catch me red handed.

Assistant hands you the crimson-stained towel, you say, "No, the clean one."....

Why not hand the person a rubber hand for the hand it to you part.

- Don't worry I am sure everything will COME OFF just fine.

- 1,2....3 weeks ago when I did this trick. I had a boy in there and accidentally chopped off his ears. I said I was sorry, but I don't think he heard me.

- In a minute you will have the greatest illusion in the world. It will appear as if the floor is RUSHING up towards your hand... but do not worry it is just an ILLUSION!

I am a right hand amputee.
I hold up my "stump" and say..."I've never known this to fail but once."
Feel free to use my patter.

I discovered this bit of business while doing an assembly. It is my all-time favorite chopper gag. It is best on a french arm chopper where they think the hand is really chopped off. Also, you must use a carrot to prove it really chops. After chopping off the hand, I take a towel and pretend to take the chopped off hand out of the bag and join it with the arm at the back of the chopper. I cover the hand and bring it towards the audience. I pause a moment, feel the hand from outside the towel, and then say, "I forgot the thumb". As I go back I grab the carrot and place it underneath the towel and walk torwards the audience. As I reach front of the stage, I yell, "AHHHH", and throw the carrot in the audience. It causes the kids to freak (and the teachers too). It is very funny after the tension has built up that I chopped off the hand. Make sure that you don't throw a line drive because you don't want to hurt anybody. Also, make sure to pay close attention or it may develop into pandemonium.

This trick is a cut above the others.
This effect is pretty disarming to most.I want to thank my vic...er volunteer for lending me a hand.
I do this trick the old fashioned way...by hand.

It adds to the suspence if you forcefully call it THE GUILLOTINE .
I also ask if they are right handed or left handed and then use the other hand.

If you accidently cut off a hand. you can always tell them you can now play stump the band. and hold up the fake stump.

1. Do you play piano? NO? Good! Yes? Well you may want to start learning to play by ear after this part of my show!

2. Now, I can't quite remember which hole I am suppose to have you put your arm in... Yea, I think this is the right one.

3. Why don't you have your hand wave bye bye to the audience one last time.

4. Now are you right handed or left handed? Good, that way If something happens you will still be able to write.

1. Have you ever had a manicure? No? Well here's my discount manicure kit, and all manicures I give with it come with a lifetime guarantee, you'll never need another!

2. OK, for this trick the gloves come off. What's that, you're not wearing gloves? No problem, we can make do...

3. Now I would like to demonstrate my "kitchen magician", it slices and dices, it makes Julian fries, and all I need is a vegetable... How about you sir, you look close enough!

4. There's an old Zen Budhist koan that asks "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" Well, I've decided to conduct a little experiment to find out...

5. Here we have my new cure for sweaty palms...

6. Vegas has a lot of one-armed bandits, and after I performed this at the prison there last week they have a few more...

7. Would you like my psychic Aunt Grizelda to read your palm? Well unfortunately she's in a retirement community in Florida right now, but with a Fed Ex overnight envelope and this little device, I think I can have some answers for you by noon tomorrow...

8. Doing a little burglarly but worried about those troublesome fingerprints? No problem, I have a solution right here...

Ah, that's all I can think of for now. All original (in the last ten minutes, even), so please feel free to use 'em if you want.

1.are you right handed or left handed? right? ok we better use your left hand.

2. before putting their hand in, ask them to put their hand up high in the air. "let the blood rush down first".

3. once they put their (lets say left) hand in the chopper, tell them to hold on to their left hand with their right hand from the other side "incase something goes wrong".
