I'm wondering if anyone else enjoyed Bill Malone's C & B routine on his new DVDs using the basic plastic cups. I thought it was terrific.

I can't see why you would be limited to the plastic cups, as there doesn't seem to be any thing specific to them.

I generally find poetic patter intolerable, but it seems to work here. At least for me.

Thoughts?

That is the rub-a-dub-dub routine right?

That it is.

Which reminds me - is the patter in print anywhere?

Yes.

Mike Skinner used the patter, and likely developed the routine Bill Malone used (I don't know, I haven't seen the Malone discs yet). The more recent Skinner issue of Genii had the whole routine written up, with the rhyming patter, of course.

But the original script was from someone else, and it appeared in print. If you're interested in finding it, these secrets are revealed elsewhere on the Café, possibly in this very section.

The original Rub-A-Dub-Dub script belongs to Phil Willmarth. It was written by Jack Bateman, who sold it to Gene Gordon. Gene sold it to Phil. It has been published several times.

This is as Bill cited on the DVD. He said he was using it with Phil's permission.

The second part of the routine Bill performed was to a "continuation" of the poem by Lance Pierce. As he says, Lance captured the tone of the original and it would be very difficult to know where the original stopped and the addendum begins.

I'm told the original Bateman poem is in Gene Gordon's book, but I'll be darned if I can find it. Wouldn't be the first time I missed something right in front of me though. I guess getting the Skinner Genii issue is probably the easiest.

I recently bought the Bill Malone DVDs & learned the "rub-a-dub-dub" c & B's for a performance at the "Quad Cities Magic Club" with a really rousing reception afterwords. I didn't have any plastic cups so I just used my brass cups, some pom-pom's, the Bill M. patter, and real golf balls as the final loads. However,since then, for close-up work, I've aquirred 3 red plastic cups and some great, white, foam golf balls from a trick called "Matthew Reesman's Appearing Golf Balls."(hope I spelled that name right.) They look like the real thing even close-up! SR.
