Other than the $100 bill switch... What is the most impacting folding money effect that you can or do perform ?

I am partial to the self-folding bill and the bill float. The 5-1 transpo is also a killer.

In my opinion, I have found Mark Jenest's "Billoon" routine to be a killer. This is the effect:

A balloon is inflated and tied. A borrowed bill is signed and THEN handed to the magician (who pockets it, as a gag).

The spectator picks up the balloon and shakes it (hearing something bouncing around inside of it).

The spectator is given, by the magician, a pin with which they pop the balloon. Their signed bill falls out of it onto the floor.

That IS a killer effect. I do it as a card to balloon.

Mark Jenest Miracles While You Wait. There are a lot of good effects on this one.

You guys took the words out of my mouth!

Roger Klause's 'Slo Motion Bill Transposition' is a small miracle.

'Pen thru Bill' is another miracle.

'Haunted Self-folding bill' is a creeepy miracle.

Bill to impossible location is also a very fun thing to do. especially if they have signed the bill.

Doesn't that one have really nasty angle problems?

Personally, I like the effect where a spectator takes a dollar bill from their wallet or purse and seals it in an envelope.

The mentalist proceeds to 'read' the serial number and writes it on a pad.

When the envelope is cut open, it is found that the mentalist was absolutely correct! Smile

Let’s see, there are several bill effects that I perform. Three bill effects that I perform the most often are:

1. BeSwitched–this is a 1-5 bill transposition. Frankly, I perform both this version (sold by Al Cohen) and the Roger Klause version. Of the two, I tend to perform this version more often. More of the bill is visible (1/4 rather than 1/8 in the Klause version). You do have to cover the gimmick with the other bill crosswise to show both sides. I carry both and have done one as the follow-up for those who want to see it repeated. Two different methods.

2. Hornswoggled Again-The Ron Bauer version of the short changed routine (this is usually paired with my three shell game or Loopy loop and Monte routine for a sequence of protect yourself from cheats “lecture”.

3. The Suspended Dollar–Mike Bornstein’s, this is where a borrowed bill that sticks to another bill by one tip of the corner. The first bill is held by the fingertips and is parallel to the floor. The second bill is lying on top of the first and is moved slowly to the end until there is only a little tip of the bill touching the first bill. This is usually done as an impromptu stunt, and then I go into BeSwitched.

I also perform the Jenest Bill in Balloon bit, The Paul Chosse’s Bar Bill Stunt (Bauer), and the torn and restored, signed bill fairly often but not as often as the three already mentioned.

Finally, my all time favorite folding money trick, it simply is the signed bill to lemon. Messy as it is, it is central to my stand-up act.

I love the McBride torn and restored sequence from his two video set!

It is torn, restored, torn and torn again, and then restored - except for a tiny corner that "accidently" falls to the table.

And then when you visibly add that last little corner to the bill, the audience roars!!

It is climax upon climax.

Other than that, Dan Harlan's Financial Attraction (floating a Dollar bill with a clever technique) never fails to get a good response. But lighting can be an issue if you aren't careful.

I use one effect from Paul Cummins' video "Up In Smoke" called Top Billing.

It is a Matrix effect that uses bills for the coin cover instead of cards.

It is a really nice handling, and is pure money, so you don't need to carry cards around to do it.

It is actually the only Matrix routine I routinely use.

As an impromptu effect, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of the following classic:

Two bills are laid at right angles to each other and back to back.

They are rolled up on the table and, when unrolled, are shown now to be face to face.

With the proper build up and theatre, it is a shocker (even for adults). I'm constantly amazed by how well this plays.

I agree with Geoff, I took it straight out of Mark Wilsons book.

It seemed a bit flimsy to me until I performed it a few times... and as you say it really gets a great reaction.

I like the fact it's gimmickless too!!

Alan,

Thanks for supplying the reference. I could not remember where I had seen this gem. It's probably in the Martin Gardner "Encyclopedia..." book and a host of introductory-type books.

Misled is a very strong effect but quite angly. I use an extra piece of paper the size of the bill as a cover. You can show the penetration from the front, show the back which is hidden under the paper and see the pencil penetrated through the paper.

Try it.

Misled is also one of my favorite bill effects, but has everyone forgotten the floating bill? This probably gets more gasps of disbelief for me than any other trick I do. Jeff, that sounds like a neat idea to make Misled a little more "angle-proof". I'll have to give it a try.
