Hi gang - With the holidays coming up I've secured a some party gigs. I'm excited to be doing more "traditional" magic but I admit... I haven't done party gigs before. I'm planning on including my sponge ball routine and sponge rabbits and a color changing knife bit with silks that finishes with a silk color change. I also have a giant B'wave or a tossed out deck (brainwave) that I do for a little bigger audience. It generally clocks in at around 10-12 minutes and with the alternating sponge routines it will give the folks at the parties some variety. Does this fit in with what party magicians are doing? Can you recommend anything else?

Thanks,

- Bill
That's MISTER Swami Bill to you.

Is this stand-up or strolling? If it's stand-up, what will be your largest audience? Will the audience consist of adults and children, or just adults?

The situation varies but it's strolling with some venues offering brief stand up if the opportunity arises for 50 people or less. Family audience but plenty of adults. In several of the gigs it'll be up to me how I want to present it.

Do you have a copper silver brass routine? I like to bring that out for strolling parties where the groups are more intimate. Just a thought.

Crazy Man's Handcuffs and Professor's Nightmare are staples of any routine I do these days.

Works great for close-up and/or slightly farther away.

Of course, anything you can do in a spectator's hand works well too. I like the sponge ball idea.

I can easily include Professor's Nightmare but copper silver brass had slipped my mind. Thanks for the tips! I think I see a set emerging...

I would also recommend scotch and soda.
Depending on size, an ambitious card routine,
and maybe a pocket size mental epic.

I'm doing something similar this weekend at a corporate party...

I believe I'll be doing these.

Hi Frank,

Your list of effects shows a lot of thought--a variety of effects with a variety of materials, doesn't require a lot of pocket space, no or instant reset, a lot of opportunity for audience participation. Everything you could want.

Scotch and Soda is great, but do you really want to have to leave the room after every time you do it to separate the gaff? For that reason alone I don't think any coin gaff that locks is practical for a walk-around setting.

So Frank, all of this set is in either yours or the spectator's hands? You don't use any tables, mats or other superfluous devices? That's great!
