CMH all the way... I have been carrying rubber bands in my wallet for years! Even got to perform it on National TV twice! I'm in Malaysia btw! (So you guys probably wouldn't have seen it... sigh...) Smile

The twisting clasped hand illusion ala David Copperfield also kills 'em! I use to follow it up with the Arm Twisting until that got exposed here... sigh... Smile

I do my own presentation of Finger Fantasies and that's a killer too!

Coins are usually available, so any sleights you know should come in handy! However, like someone said, what makes it good, impromptu or not, is the performer and the performance NOT the trick or the method! Smile

The trick where you throw the Napkins over the guys head. that's so funny and so much fun to do! They never know what you do until you tell them. Smile

CMH = Crazy Man's Handcuffs

The routine is written up in great detail in the Magic of Michael Ammar. I'm not positive, but I would assume it is on one of the Dan Harlan Rubber Band videos.

Once you learn the basic move, Jon Allen has some great work on the routine in is Spectators Don't Exist video. The video is great, but it does not explain the most basic "move", so look it up first on one of the Harlan videos or in the Ammar book. Happy hunting.

Impromptu, hmmmm. I have always had the view that, if you want people to think you are a good magician you always have something prepared but make it look impromptu. e.g. I noticed that one of a group of friends had started smoking some weird cigarillo type thing, craftily noted the brand and then the next few times out always had one of the same brand in my pocket with TT handy. When called upon to perform I just took one of his rare cigarettes, tore it up, restored it, and left even my more magiclly aware friends confused as to how that could be possible. Preparation is everything !!!

How about Lonnie Chevrie's Finger Thru Bill?

Borrowed bill, never leaves spectator's sight + cool effect.

Coin Magic
Mentalism with just a pen and paper.
Any of Banachek's stuff.
Knepper's material, if you are strong enough.
Twisting are illusion.
A couple good jokes.
There's a book called Lifesavers by Weber and of course, Ency. of Impromptu Magic by Gardner which I regret that I do not own.

I like to wait for someone to pull a small pocketknife out of their pocket, preferrably one that has a label on only one side, such as "Old Timer" or "Buck" knife. I look at their knife and "fiddle" with it doing the p***** move in D grip. Next thing you know, the label is gone, then on both sides, then gone, then back to normal. Really quick, no more than a minute. With their knife. I've never lost the secret and I've done it many, many times.
I also like to do the effect where they clasp their hands together, point their index fingers up and hold them together. Then the screw and screwdriver bit where the screw screws their index fingers together, etc. You may be familiar with the deal, it's been described before, 'though I know not where.
And the twisting arm...yeah...that one just KILLS.
Fun stuff...all impromptu...all solid.

Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
