You guys all knwo the classic close up magic trick where the magician slams a glass (wrapped in newspaper) thru the table.

What if you could show the audience the glass actually coming thru the table.? here's the idea

you cut a glass ring from the open end of an identical glass.
Use magicians wax to attatch this glass ring to the bottom of the table.
As you push the newspaper glass flat -ask the specatator to look under the table and they will see the glass "coming thru".

YOu'll have to find a way to hide the real glass that you lapped.


well there's the idea. I'm sure you can figure it out

A friend did just that a while ago at one of those magic meetings that we have. It wasn't convincing.

Besides, the trick is NOT about the glass coming through the table. That's the suprise, not the premise. Usually a coin is supposed to go through the table. The glass is only used as a "stamp". But then the glass goes instead of the coin.

BTW: Tony Clark has a pretty convincing item on the market, called "Bottle Thru Body" which can also go through the table.

J.C. Wagners presentation and handling of this routine is one of the very best, though he has the advantage of working 'behind' the bar, nobody at his side, nevertheless his handling can be adapted to other stand-up performing venues.

Also, Bob Read has a great and entertaining routine/handling of this, don't overlook it!

Johnny Platt had some of the best ideas on this.

Del Ray had a great use of this in one of his dice routines. He had a "logical" reason for wrapping the glass and at the end the glass vanished.

The best I've seen was Steve Shepherd's routine. Done standing and produced the glass from under spectator's jacket.

It is really an easy thing to do... just takes some brave pills and go for it.
