I would pay good money to see a redneck magic show if they take small change . I think most people have a bit of redneck in them. Your discussion has made me think about doing a Mafia magic act since that's my persuasion.

Just got invited to do a "country and western" auction in Everett, Wa for a gymnastics school. Since it won't be a gen-yew-ine western group, I don't have to do the NASCAR bits, but I would like to get into the country motif for at least a few of the effects.

Shouldn't be too hard to think of ways of adding the country edge to my act: bandanas for the blindfold routine. "Rat Pack" would fit. Fizz master with budweiser cans... floating kazoo (for cigarette) a la Sammy the Kid...

any other ideas welcome.

Wow- this really makes the gears turn in my head...

My dad is the epitome of a true redneck..He's always quoting Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. A good example- my dad has never shed a tear in front of me until Earnhardt died... I can think of a lot of effects just from what he talks about!

Anyway, I got to thinking about the "Redneck Show". I believe there is a high market for this kind of an act especially with the high rising success of the Blue Collar Comedy guys... I live in Northern California and there are so many hicks from the sticks...They would love this kind of show!

I was thinking...
Instead of working from a podium, why not construct a Weber BBQ to double as a table to do your magic off of (the under side "bowl" could easily be transformed with a couple shelves to store your props.

How about a rubber chicken- dove act... Could you imagine a "Where did the Chicken Go"?

A Dixie Flag Blendo
A National Inquirer book test
The Beer Pitcher (instead of a milk pitcher)
NASCAR flag production from a pony keg inside a crate rickity-looking (Square Circle)
Turning a taxodermy animal into a live animal...

Hmm...
I have to think about this more...

I like your barbecue table idea. Produce a dove from a bandana you've just blown your nose on. Then vanish the dove in a flurry of feathers (from a pillow- almost like you defeathered the dove in vanishing it). Go over to the barbecue and stick a fork into a newly appeared small rock cornish hen all barbecued nicely and ask someone if they like their doves with ketchup or hot sauce. It's got possibilities!

If you think a "prestidigitator" is one of those new-fangled instant slicers that cuts perfect french fried taters... you just might be a redneck!

I've done a few shows here that were of a hillbilly bent. My audiences here in Wisconsin really loved the show and the character. Being from West Virginia coal country originally, I'm able to pull this off with language and mannerisms, without going too far into stereotypes (somethimes they hit waaaaay too close to home). Bill was right that a Northerner could never pull it off with the dignity, humor and self deprication an act like this truly deserves. Being a superstitious lot, it works really well in conjunction with the bizarre/darker themes.

You might be a redneck is you have a complete set of cups and balls and they all say "cool whip" on the side of them

I think that would be a great idea to incoperate the redneck culture into magic

Cool Whip? Hell, no! They use McDonald's paper cups still with soda spots clinging to them. For the balls, roll 'em up from the toilet paper you find clinging to your shoe.

Redneck culture is an oxymoron.

It sure is a culture, the same way Rap music and Rap culture has become a way of life for some people whether you like it or you don't, when ever a group of people live a certain way and openly admit up front what they are.......its a culture.
