I am in a wand rut . . . I didn't think the feather duster wand, the snake wand, and the fishingpole wand are that funny. Anyone got some good ones that might be a little more obscure, but commercially available (or constructable)? For example, does anyone know where to get the zebra wand? The breakaway and nested are funny. Are those the standard? What other ones do you use?

How are you presenting the wands that you have.

As someone who REGULARLY fails to get laughs from the popsy topsy wand, I can safely say that it is the magician who makes the wand funny, not the other way around. However, I have used and have good luck with

Wand To Snake
Spring Wand
Wobbly Wand
Ten Foot Wand
Breakaway Wand
Magic Blonde (me...i'm blonde and magic)
Wooley wand
Sock wand

My favorite wand to date is the "Wand to Cane"!

re zebra:This product has a striped wand among others

I think my favourite wand is the silly wand.

I have a wand to feather duster that I've used for years that I much prefer to the duster wand. I adapted it from supreme's wand to flowers.

Marvin's magic do a neat wand for a couple of quid.

Magicgeorge,

That one is pretty cool but a bit expensive for me.

Giant Wand on one end (which is what the audeince sees when it is sticking end up out of a miniature stand up/knitting type bag on your table. Then, when you pick it up out of the bag,you flip it around showing it's other end to be a real hammer and yo use it to "destroy" someone's cell phone or watch (really a duplicate dummy phone or watch) that is waiting inside a Rip/Zip type bag (a la Baxt's Cell phone surprise routine)..

The hammer on the other end of the giant want gets a real laugh.

Jerry Sadowitz published a routine with a load of wands in an early issue of the Crimp magazine and I remember seeing him do it on his BBC2 TV show 'The Pallbearers Review'.

Be warned though Jerry's stuff is not for everyone and certainly not for the kids.

Warren Stephens had about a dozen different (maybe more) comedy wands. Chalet Magic got the rights to manufacture them when Warren passed away, but I don't think Chalet has done anything with them yet.

Warren did a pile of lectures. There must be Notes on them somewhere.

Good luck!

Trevor Lewis' Wistful Wand is a guaranteed laugh getter. I also always use the nesting wands in my shows. I like the plastic roll up ones.

I love the wand that consists of a long cloth tube (this one's an original from Supreme Magic) with a 260 balloon inside. Looks hilarious as it is, wobbling back and forth as you wave it, BUT, I have a method for S L O W deflation after you hand it to the spectator. They end up with nothing more than a very limp, flat wand made of cloth! You, of course, haven't noticed the deflation process.

Steve,I would be interested in the workings of the slow deflation if you are willing to share. If not publicly, perhaps a PM and we could trade ideas.
I have just seen this advertised again from Albion magic.

I just added the Flipple Tipple wand and really like that one. It has "breakaway" ends, but you can restore them one-handed, do them on both ends at different times, and is less work resetting than the breakaway. I haven't used it in any shows, but it is going to be my new favorite.

I just bought the Flipple Tipple wand also from Joe Leffler, very clever. http://www.wearefun.com/catalog/product_......3326da6a

I started using the Biggger Wands from Creative; great response from kids (and parents)....BUT A SEVERE WARNING!!!!.....they are contagious.....

So, I just ordered (and received today) the BIGGEST WAND (12ft)! http://www.creativemagic.net/kids/biggestwand.htm

Can't wait to close with this one...plan on using the theme from Jaws when I bring it from behind the curtain, allowing the tip to show above the curtain, as I drag it back and forth (like a shark fin) before bringing it out completely. also thought about theme from 2001 (Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathursta), but fewer people would get the monolith reference!

I love comedy wands and use about 6 in each performance. I don't spend much time on them with the exception of "Bigger Wands" as I have a full routine around those big boys.

In my routine I need a helper to assist me with a trick I fouled up. My assistant arrives and I give him/her the following:

Break-away wand - 3 different holds (End, center and vertical)
Break-Away fan
Fishing-Pole wand
Multiplying wand
A real normal wand

I have a Warren Stephens wand that I use all the time.

It works by gravity and is made of rubber with metal tips.

Also Warren Stephens Spider Wand is a hoot too.
