I would like to try the silk to egg, but theres not many white eggs in uk???

I'm assuming you guys eat brown eggs. You could paint or die one of the white eggs. Maybe soak it overnight in coffee or wood stain or something like that. Might be worth a shot.

Been around magic for years and seemed to have missed the 4 ring routine. Is there a place to see it? Perhaps on youtube? Or maybe I have and just didn't realize the name or originator. ???

Wally,

I used a dark flesh cloloured acrylic paint with mine which did the job...It just needed touching up every now and then!

Oh...When I said had kid on stage that was during a family show not a kids show!

Been considering getting multiplying martini bottles! Although I like the idea of doing it silently maybe?? Just to do a bit different!

Sean

BTW How do you present your egg routine? I used to explain that I was going to teach them all a trick (which obviously is what the trick is about) but felt that it worked better with a family show and having the kid on stage teaching him the trick, etc! Maybe I'm being a bit shallow minded here thinking that I could only use it with kids in the audience! (BTW we do adult and corporate shows also!)

What do you think? It's obviously working well for you Brent with adults!

The Macombical Deck ( might have spelt that wrong). I've posted a version of it here somewhere. It almost certainly won't be anything you can use, (I end up dressed in a superhero costume Smile ), but it might give you an idea of the different ways you could go with it.



Genius! please enlighten me, glad there's more people that dress up in there act! I sometimes do a Superman and Superrabbit card trick. Its quite out there tho. Infact rather bizzare.

Also silk to egg, you can buy cheap brown fake eggs from the joke shop and cut a hole into them yourself.

I do an egg bag routine that includes the egg breaking in my pocket, good for many laugh - from there I break the real raw egg I always use into a dove pan, to flaming book - lots of laughs as I pretend not to notice, etc, to the production of a rubber chicken.

Props are old hat but for kid or mixed audiences, the patter and presentation work great for me. (I just bought Wolf's Wacky Weasel, - a trick that's bound to be funny.

Comedy Card Babies by Dave Devin is a killer. It is a trick and comedy rountine in one. It is for sell at Murphy's, Hank Lee, Hocus Pocus and a few others. You should order the lager size for stage.

Sean-

Pretty much the same format of showing them a trick that they can user on family & friends etc-I base my routine loosely on Michael Ammars Idea from his book & spoke to him about it a couple of years ago & he recommended performing this for adults-it plays well

I also have trouble getting white eggs-1 part of the city -none

A few miles drive & the odd place has them-I buy a tray at atime & keep about a dozen for shows
Cheers

I also use the Viking version of Silk to Egg.
I like to finish it by peeling off what appears to be the silk from the egg, and then I break it off.
I like to ask for someone's drink when doing it, very funny when you crack an egg in there =)

The pink poodle is awfully funny.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "
