Anyone ever do any escapes as part of their street magic? Which ones do you do? I was thinking about doing a thumbcuff comedy routine, but wanted to get some feedback on whether other escapes go over well.

If you mean street act as in street magic then yes folks do escapes. I know a fellow who does an upside down strait jacket escsape. If you mean as in "want to see something that trancends the mind? Here, tie me up then rub ashes on my arm" then no.

I think the strait jacket is the most popular. Some street magicians would be shocked that you do a street act without one.

I used to do strait jacket in the street as my ending and sometimes I'd start off with a handcuff escape routine where I'd have a cop handcuff me to a street light. This was always sure to draw a crowd.

Hmmm... never tried a straight jacket escape. Is there a good place to learn?

There may not be a PLACE to learn but there certainly is a DVD (actualy 4). I believe its called Escapology with Dixie Dooley Volumes 1-3 (+ Bonus Houdini Lives DVD).

Have fun,

I am preparing my street escape show.
I'll be doing comedy thumbcuffs, handcuffs challenge, chained and padlocked in a locked bag, and then for my finale I'll do either : handcuffed hands on fire, or handcuffed chained and padlocked to my back with a plastic bag taped to my face...
