One of my favorite tricks , in fact I translated the whole thing in maltese , and funnily enough I found the sock and sausage ryme in maltese infact only the first letter is different .

Just to clarify, the Vanishing Bandanna can be found being performed by joe Pasquale on his "The Everything I Have Ever Done..." DVD in extra features.

I personally use this effect as a time filler and never fails to get a great reaction. Its not the voiceover that makes it funny, its the facial expressions and they way you react to the CD that gets the laugh.

I have seen others do it and not get the reaction it deserves. If you can act the idiot this is a great routine. Of course, every entertainments manager on every holiday park in the UK has seen it, but it doesn't mean every person sat in the audience has seen it.

I agree with Smudge above. I love this trick but I had to quit performing it. The problem with it is that it is a great trick that is too easy to perform and too affordable. For those reasons, everybody who fancies themselves to be a magician in my market has got one as is performing it.

Yeah, seeing as they've only sold a few million comedy albums and are household names and all.

Pyro, thanks for sharing your video. You really need to have the bandana and Hank in a box or envelope to start with to make the whole "they sent me the wrong object" gag to make sense. If the banana is sitting on the table then it doesn't really work.

I actually think the whole premiss of the magic shop that actually makes the trick sending the wrong thing doesn't make much sense anyhow. I've performed the effect a couple of times and the last time I went with the line of patter that I recieved the instructions yesterday and sent my little brother out to the shops to get the props.

it makes no sence to me for a company to send you a banana in the mail.......... it doesn't need to come out of the box,, hat way is only copying the exact thing they suggested right when you did get it........... I'd rather play the moron, than the "why did they sem=nd me the wrong stuff? oh well I'm still going to do it anyways"
ya know?... thanks for sharing your thoughts though.... what did you think of the video overall?
P.S. this is what part of the alphabet would look like if "Q" and "R" were eleminated

This is one of my favorite effects. If I have time for one effect, this is it. I perform with the CD and act. The effect is all about acting. Giving the audience a chance to laugh is important. Laughter is, as we all know, one of the strongest expressions of delight!!

I'll watch the video in a few minutes and make comment as requested.

Regards,
Joe

Watched the video. Thanks for making the video and providing us an opportunity to see you performing. Some thoughts.... I believe you are missing the "setup" for the effect. All humor has a "setup". Suggest you use the shipping box and introduce this effect with a "reason" for performing and why it was chosen. i.e. the "setup" Now this provides a basis for the effect and a reason for appearing as though you have made the big mistake by performing this for the first time.

Timing is important ....don't anticipate the CD. I drag the movements by waiting and waiting because I'm confused! Use your entire body to give a larger expression to the effect. I like the turned head to the "look natural" line, but suggest you lower the "plam" to your side and look the oposite direction for your "natural look".

I didn't mean to adjudicate here....but just play with this and have some fun. Show it in you face with big expression. The more comic like you can play...the bigger the laughts you will receive. If you are getting giggles...you need to adjust your presentation.

Have fun.

Joe

If I can add my two cents..... Absolutly the set up is a Big part of this effect. I have taken the Vanishing Bandanna One step Further ( to my knowledge nobody else does this and you are all welcome to add it to your routine) At the end of the routine you show that the Bannana Is indeed GONE As the CD Says "Remember a Good Magician Never Tells the Secret" At this point I reach in the Acme Box and Pull out a Yellow Bandana and wipe my forhead with it and then with a confusing look I glare at the bandana as if It was me that made the mistake and chose the wrong prop. Just my two cents.... It works well for me Maybe it will work for you as well

I have performed this effect a few times on kmy own, but I think it is much funnier when done in a double act. 1 of you reading out the instructions and the other doing the actions. You can play off each other and whisper to each other, as if it has actually gone wrong!
Amazingly simple and amazingly effective, absolutly brilliant!
