Hi everyone, I caught a promo for America's got talent and it showed briefy a close up magician pulling a silk through his palm. It appeared to be going through the palm and being pulled through the back of the hand. I've never seen that effect before and it looked outstanding. Anyone familiar with it? Is it available?

Thanks Dan

That is Bizzaro, a friend of mine.
It's his effect, he created it, and he won't sell it.

Video of him doing the effect.

I guess I will have to get out my cordless drill and make a hole in my hand until he feels like sharing.

Bizarro is a wonderful, very, very skilled, and refreshing performing. He puts his own spin on dozens of old (some very, very old) tricks and comes up with something that looks totally new! His take on the old collapsing coke can is (married to a haunted deck) is fantastic, funny, and magical. It is pure magical theater (as is his whole act!).

The silk through hand is another old idea that he has updated, turned a tad “geek”, and made into a clever and impossible effect. Of course the basic idea (silk through a real solid “something”) has been around for a while. You can find it in print in Kaufman’s 1992 book “Five Times Five”.

The trick is “Fabric Through Pasteboard” by Masao Atsukarwa. It doesn’t take much to move the gimmick from the jumbo card to a sheet of ungimmicked (and totally examinable) plastic (my version) or a sheet of metal (also my version) to using a hand (Bizarro’s wonderful jump!). It took me maybe 10 minutes to make a working, albeit crude, gimmick after reading the first query in this thread. After watching Bizzaro do the piece on the link that Randi provided I know that I can never perform it. It simply belongs to him!

He said he will hunt down anyone performing it, and he will wear a giant bannana suit while doing it.
Just to throw people off. Smile

Now that I'll pay to see! If I find anyone performing this brilliant piece I'll let him know (heck I may just pay someone to perform it to see Bizarro in a giant bannana suit!).

I'd say it is one of his signature bits and should be left alone.

Someone is exposing this trick on youTube.
Bizzaro is going to kill this guy.

I prefer the lampshade magician to the masked magician.
Nice tape editing all the way through.
I recognize those ringed hands though.
Where can one purchase a t-paper tube such as in the video?

Thanks,
Walt

Why is exposure such a sought-after form of expression these days?!

Why can't people leave secrets as just that -- secrets?!

I too am good friends with the B man (name dropper) and I have it on good authority that it will NEVER be sold. It's his routine and he's very protective of it. If you try to rip him off and are caught, he will unleash his fury on you like Mad Cow Disease. You have been warned! = )

That was my first rickroll experience but I didn't know it until Bizarro told me what had happened.

Sounds like Harry and I have been reading the same books. When I saw Bizarro's routine I immediately thought of that Kaufman book.

That book has one heck of an appearing deck of cards trick in it as well. Very very visual.

I don't know who this Rick is and why he continues to "roll" people (explain please?), but that was a funny video.

Unfortunately, someone has posted a workable method here.

I met a magician at Magi Fest Columbus Ohio, and he showed me this trick but with a black glove on. His name was "Bach" I believe. He planed to make it avaliable to the magic community. Did Bizarro use a glove? Ask Bob Sanders as from my understanding he is an expert and lecturer on silk magic. He is a great guy and may know what direction to guide you in

Wow... double rick roll'd. Silk through hand is impressive, I just sold a prototype to Hank Lee.

Kidding! But I was impressed with the rick roll. I never saw that coming.

Saw this at Hocus Pocus today…It's the Al Bach version. However, this is a 6 year old thread. Is this a re-issue or updated release?
