Who has the best impromptu magic tricks using just regular objects out on DVD. I know that several magicians have them out, but what one is the best?

Your timing is perfect! Jay Sankey just releases his Anytime, Anywhere dvd where all of the featured 34 tricks/effects are impromptu ( well, except one, to be precise). He uses matches, pen, rubberbands, cards, coins, etc to create an impressive collection of very commerical effects in this dvd. Check it out at http://www.mjmmagic.com/

Check out Gregory Wilson's work. Off the Cuff and On the Spot are great dvds. His newest release, In Action contains 90% impromptu magic. They are probably my favourite dvds.

Exactly! Everything Greg puts out is gold. In Action is my favorite as well. Also on the plus side is the fact that Greg alway's has hot looking girls helping him during the explainations.

Thanks, it look like Grey Wilson's "On the Spot" is a very good DVD and hot looking girls helping is good too!!!

What does everyone that has seen Jay Sankey just releases his Anytime, Anywhere dvd think about it?

Greg Wilson's stuff is very good but his effects, IMO, requires a good working knowledge of sleights that he doesn't go over in details at times.

True, but they're still good! Another vote for Jay's Anytime Anywhere DVD!

Some of Dan Harlan's Impromptu stuff is genius, a little older but overlooked by many.

I don't think Greg's impromptu stuff requires a lot of difficult sleights. The stuff on On The Spot is no more difficult than the stuff on the new Jay Sankey dvd. In fact, they both use a lot of the same sleights. On The Spot is not only a great dvd of effects, it's also a wonderful tool for studying timing and misdirection.

The Xtreme Rubber band dvd - Joe Rindfleisch
Or rubber band magic - Dan Harlan
I think also a good DVDs for impromtu. The only thing you need is rubber band
about the Greg Wilson....
Can't say any better than the others.... He's great

I'm gonna stick with Greg Wilson! He's at the top of my list..if you haven't purchased his DVDs you are hurting, my friend!

Aldo Columbini has a 3 disk set that just came out that is all impromtu card tricks.

It is very good as is the new Sankey.

Gregory Wilson's stuff is also very good.

Hey Jeremy,

Good comment man, I don't have a huge collection but what I do buy is always quality! Dan has a lot of very creative and workable impromptu stuff. I gave up on Sankey after a while because as much as I like his creativity often there is only a small-meduim sized portion of workable, real world material.

Some of the other artists who do lots of impromptu stuff only publish properly polished routines that are audience tested, not just 'ideas' that may become a good routine with more work.

Cheers,
Al

It's true that some Sankey stuff isn't very practical or convincing. But his new dvd is very good.

Are you referring to his Front Row Sankey? Or his Anytime, Anywhere dvd? His works in Rev. Card Magic and Greatest Hits require preps for most of his effects (well, with some exception such as his coin stuff). But I'd say that his effects are all very convincing. If you want practical and/or impromptu magic, go with the Anytime, Anywhere dvd.

Totally agree!!! Dan Harland is a great thinker. A lot of his material is only possible to get on Video, but makes for great bargains at the magic dealers.
His work on impromptu magic is gold!!!

I was talking about Anytime Anywhere. When I was refering to stuff that wasn't all that practical, I mean't effects off of some of his other dvd's like 22 Blows to the Head and some of the stuff on Rev. Coin Magic.
