Thanks for the participation. I believe the list would be very helpful to many people.

Sorry, I was a bit slow replying to my suggestions - but it looks like the guys have filled in all the gaps. There's an error in #38: John Ramsay's famous routine was with just 2 ice cream cups. He also published a one-cup routine using an 'Indian' cup.

A few more:

Gary Kurtz - 3 cups
John Bannon - 3 cups
Steve Draun - 3 cups
Ed Marlo - 3 cups

We should add Andy Comic...very entertaining routine with elements of both two-ball and three-ball handling.

Does the 3 cup routine published in Mark Wilson's book count?

I see Jos Berna's Solid Can routine is listed; in this case, let's also include the similar solid can routines published by Paul Harris and Michael Ammar.

I believe Jay Sankey also had a C&B routine published in Sankey Pankey; haven't read it so don't know how many cups it involved, sorry.

Peter Wardell teaches a street cups routine - with, of course, similarity to Gazzo's, on DVD.

David Regal also has a one cup routine in print.

Cheers.

That's Bema, not Berma. Jos Bema is Jos Bemelman, AKA Tommy Wonder.

It would be good to track down who originated the solid can routine, because they are all actually fairly similar, except for Lonnie Chevrie's, in which the ball used ends up inside the can.

*sorry about that, Bill. Knew it was TW's name, but didn't know it was short for Bemelman. Good to know, thanks.

I read that the solid can routine was a PH idea, somewhere. Not 100%, though.

It should it is a great little routine. the first one I learned. Also, anyone looking to simply (yet accurately) talk about cups history in their routine should read Mr. Wilsons intro to the cups & balls. it is historically accurate and well written.

this is a 3 cup routine with a 4th cup produced as part of the finale.
