The jar size and shape I think really helps with how this works. Outlandish is something I am working on. Actually I think a jar of wasabi would be totally unexpected for the japanese tourists I perform for. Wasabi usually comes in a tube, so I think that this would seem hilarious for them. I am hoping that my friend in Australia can get me a pot of jam in the 28g size. My hands aren't very big.

I just recieved the dvd. Some very nice routines James.

Band Up is an excellent reveal. Good thinking on getting it on the spectators hand.

The watch steal instructional is alright, I only wish I saw it in conjunction with the trick you were doing it with. Oh well.

I enjoy the bit on the extras with the three blokes at the bar and you were just jazz magic with them (it seemed) and the James Brown music in the background made me laugh.


Well thought out material James.

Great video on a subject that is hard to find any material on, Walk around magic with cards. Not for beginners, but I feel this is one on the best DVD's I have bought in a long time.

The pots of jam trick is being very similar to a old supreme magic trick called small beer.

I hope it is being credited. For those who are not knowing about it here is a description...

'A variation on "How Much" by Milborne Christopher. You show a 10p and a 1p. Explaining that you went to buy a drink and that was the only money you had. You place these into your hand and explain that it is magic money, removing one and putting it into your pocket you ask how much is left. Both coins have returned to the hand! You repeat this, as many times as you wish. Until the last time you change the money into a small bottle of beer!'
Think not what magic can do for you, but what you can do for magic.

I credit this variation in my lecture. This effect is based on "Cent (Scent)" by Roy Johnson. All effort has been made with crediting although someone somewhere will point out an omission.

Hope that answers the question...

Hey guys, I am not sure about the size of a 1p and 10p so I was wondering if the us equvilant will work equally good? I am asking cause it seemed to be that cause of the size difference the "gimmick" might not work.

Thanks james, looking forward to it mate
I'm sure you could give away a little more though........??
by the way, I read else where that instead of a pot of jam for the final load,
small pots of vaseline work well
just be careful what type of gigs you use it in ;-)

Anything that fits in your hand. A mini deck of cards, a lime, a jumbo coin, a completely different coin, an egg, one of those milk containers you get in hotel rooms, chewing gum packet

Been a while so sorry to bring this up

got this the other day and its great, best purchase ive made in magic for a long time, a lot the the effects require a few sleights and a lot of balls, I been doing the jam trick witha 50g pot of jam and ive got girly hands but its not being detected, you really have just got to do it!
when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth
