I find this funny that this has come up. I also have a redneck character that I dreamed up and will be doing in the close-up competion at the FL State convention next weekend. I wear a Dale Earhardt T-shirt, a pair of shorts, hiking boots, BillyBob teeth, blonde wig, blonde moustache/sideburns, sun glasses and a black skull cap. I look a lot like HUlk Hogan until the glasses come off and I smile.
Who knows how this will go over but I'm willing to find out. Oh, my name is Billy Ray SugarPea the Trailor Trash Magician.

The image of a "high class" red neck act illusion act where port-o-sans are used like cabinets, both amuses and horrifies me.

From the spirit cabinet to the substitution trunk done with things you find in a home depot. Wonderful. Cut and restored duct tape? Refrigerator or Washing machine escapes?

The main caveat I would have for an act like this is to make sure that you aren't from up North or back East when you do the act. If they think you are laughing at them, they will demonstrate their own versions of the bullet catch. The reason Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy can do the things they do is that they are of redneck extraction.

The second caveat I would have would be "don't use the word 'caveat' during the show." Unless it is in a sentence like "Hey, Fred! Where's Mammoth Caveat?"

Here's my report from the FL State Convention.
My "Billy Ray - The Trailor Trash Magician" was a hit. I had the highest scores in the close-up contest but, unfortunately, I went over time limit and was disqualified. The closest competitor was 5 points below my scores. The audience loved the humor and the magic wasn't bad either.

Oh yeah...Billy Ray will be making a come-back at "Magic on the Beach - 2005" and at the "2006 IBM Convention" in Miami. And he will make the time limit next time.

Yuh need one of them there timers. Yuh kin make one from a candle and an old size 12 boot. When the candle burns down it burns through a flash string holding a weight, the weight slams down on a plank which sends the boot right towards yer keister (I'm cleaning this up fer the censors!). On the bottom of the boot is the chosen card from an earlier trick that gave you a hard time. You end with that and say good-night.

Oh, yeah, and congratulations!

I came across this today while "surfing." It's got a definite place as a prize for winning some kind of competition between "rednecks."

I formed a routine and drew the plans for a prop of my own for the future when I plan to open a comedy stage show somewhere.

Since I am from Georgia, I have somewhay of an accent. So I knew crowds up north and west (vegas) would find it humorous. So I desinged a zig zag illusion that looks like an outhouse, along with an indestructable woman that looks like an outhouse and toilet plungers are shoved through the holes. The routine would be done to duelin' banjos and the costumes would be overalls, t-shirts, etc.

I thought it would be something humorous to throw into a show. The rest of the show would not involve the country hick and redneck stuff. The rest would be straight up comedy magic.

Chance wolf had a product out called the outhouse that does a card trick. You might be interested in using that to your benefit.

So, do we have any Redneck Magicians working the crowds of the Redneck Games in East Dublin, Georgia? If not, you missed a great opportunity! If so, please let us know all about it! Post pictures if you remembered to get one of those little box cameras at the 7-11 out on the highway.

How about a tear/restore newpaper, but the restore newspaper has duct taped lines over it. Does a company make roadkill stuff animals for the little ones.

Hey, fizzmaster would go well with budweiser.

I can see a NASCAR connection. Maybe wear an unlabeled jacket, pull up a cover, then the jackets got the NASCAR type labeling all over.

And have you thought of throwing cards to knock over a pyramid of cans? yeehaw

You would have to make sure that you used your sister in every routine that needed an assistant.

It's been done. Mot a bad idea, though.

Sit down and listen to a bunch of Jeff Foxworthy stuff. Then list all of the really good redneck things you can think of.

Holes -- good. Skidmarks -- bad. Tire tracks -- funny.

Tire tracks. I agree.
You could bring a redneck show to Canada. Duct tape is huge. It would probably go over well. I find the outhouse illusion ideas very interesting.
