A mini combo set. It kills. Scott tells me it works as well with a full size set.

David Williamson’s 2 cup routine is my go-to. It’s been a long time since I’ve used it and I just ended up picking up some cups from rings and things to put it back in the act. I use limes as the final load. The advantage of his routine is it can be done with tea cups, coffee mugs or even cocktail shakers. It’s fairly impromptu if you have the right set of stacking cups. I remember cobbling together the routine one Christmas Eve at a bar out of cocktail shakers, rolled up dollar bills and a butter knife. The bar obviously had lemons.

I posted “The Sponge Ball/ Cup Routine on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on April 2, 2004 (page 31 of the Gerald Deutsch Perverse Magic book).

This routine is a combination from the routines of Slydini, Roy Benson, and Dr. Jaks and has elements of Perverse Magic.


Effect

The routine is done seated with the audience facing the performer.

1 A cup (or bowl) is shown empty and placed on the table.

2 A bagless purse frame is shown and a sponge ball is produced from it.

3 The ball vanishes and is shown under the cup.

4 That ball is covered by the cup and another ball is produced from the purse frame.

5 That ball is vanished and 2 balls are shown under the cup.

6 The magician puts one ball in his left hand and puts a pen in his left hand and a second ball is taken in his right hand which takes the other end of the pen.

The magician shows that the ball is no longer in the left hand and there are now 2 balls in the right hand - one ball having gone through the pen.

7 This is repeated but although there is no ball in the left hand, there is only one in the right hand. The magician looks puzzled and then looks under the cup and finds the missing ball. He scratches his head in confusion.

8 The magician tells the spectator that her hand will be the cup. On ball is given to the spectator and the magician takes the other. The magician's ball vanishes and the spectator has 2.

9 The spectator is given both balls and the magician looks in the purse for another. He finds only a tissue. He looks in his pocket but still can't find another. Finally, he asks the spectator to open her hand and she finds she has 3.

10 The spectator is asked to pick up 2 and the magician takes 1. The magician vanishes his ball and tells the spectator to open her hand and when she does a dozen or so balls fall out much to the surprise of the spectator and the magician.
