Anybody familiar with this routine? Is it any good? What are its limitations?

It sounds like "Bottle through table" but instead using table it use body.
I believe it use the same gimmick

The routine seems interesting, but I think bottle through table will still be better. I really don't know how practical this handling can be.

See a demo at

Personally, I figured out how it was done and I think it's much BETTER applied to Bottle Thru Table as, in my opinion, more magical.

Having it go through the body is a little funny - it's not bad but it's quite angly and more comedy than magic.

Still good though!

I’m bringing this back to the top because rsummer27 had a question about it and rather than opening another thread, thought I'd add to this one.

I use this trick as almost a throwaway gag for my “bike run” venues. Like the Bottle thru Table, the "Bottle thur Body" has some angle problems to manage.

I tend to perform it against the bare midriff of a pretty girl. Luckily today’s fashion for younger girls is showing a bit of midriff.I call it "Bottle thru Babe!"

So far, I haven’t played it for a younger group (kid show). It would probably play very strong for kids.

I have been performing at the beginning and/or end of several “Bike Run’s” events (Poker Run, Freedom Ride, etc.).

I perform the “razor blade trick”, “needle through hand (pop balloon) and needle through arm (the full gross version that is rarely done, you know, the whole thread through the hole and RIP it out bit!)”, “Iron Garrote”, and “Bottle thru Babe!” Packs flat and plays big at that venue.

I have this effect. Its the one by Tony Clark and Billy Gallo.

Eddiekap : Yes you get a VHS tape with it. This has the performance first. Then a complete instruction. And shows both the authors doing it on street sides and freaking people out.

I use this as a regular interlude between my illusions. Yes When done with the body of a girl its a little angly. But adds much entertainment due to the expressions of the girl as she goes thru this. Its a little bit of slieght of hand. So no self-working miracle. But I got a better response than to my large illusions on this one. I wud give it 8 out of 10. Its very easy to work with. And its the simplicity that kills them. But this will look a little ctumpy unless you have a good stage persona to carry the effect well. I wud say this is well suited for stage situations. I performed it directly on stage (2000 setas hall) with just one days practice. LOL. Ive got some guts yes...LOL. The gimmick is so small that you cud carry this in your pocket with no problems and perform anytime. Great to carry to parties too. Any more questions ?
