It's an old routine, been around for ages. I believe it was even done in old Vaudeville comedy routines.

Yes, its a very old routine that has been done with eggs and also ping pong balls. I used to do it with balls as it give me more areas to play with such as color changes, or continuous different colored balls production from mouth instead of just white balls.

If you are not used to having things in the mouth don't try this effect immediately. Some people can't stand having a large object inside the mouth and after a short while they think they want to puke/vomit. Start off with ice balls/cubes. That's because the ice melts and you are safe. Then move up to using chocolates and once you are used to having things in the mouth, then you can try real balls.

While I have not used this, I have used a similar technique to achieve the same effect. I showed my hat empty and produced the eggs from there one at a time and overloaded the kid.

Granted, it's not quite as funny as from the mouth, however it doesn't rely on an assistant.

The trick has been around more than a hundred years. I saw a video of John Calvert performing a ping pong ball version with Red Skelton as the mouth produing the goods.

It was a great performance...

As to a review of the effect: It is not expensive. It can be very funny, but to work well, you need an assistant who can act and you need some basic maipulation skill.

Scale of Difficulty: 3/10

Kevin James did this the other night on Masters of Illusion.....Had a kid on stage and piled the eggs in his arms until the child couldn't hold them anymore......needless to say, there was plastic down on the stage to catch the fallout....

Hello everyone... I have this paticular gimmick from Abracadabra however when I bought it a few years ago they gave me instrucitions for another trick. I kept it in my box and never opened it until recently and discovered the wrong instructions are there.

I just have one question if someone could PM me... what method do you use to keep producing the real eggs in your hand?

Just keep it palmed. Pin a dropper under the edge of your jacket (if you wear one), and halfway through the routine actually visibly drop the egg in the container. Then when the next one comes from the mouth, drop the egg from under you coat, pull this from the mouth, and then continue the routine.

Jim gave you a good explanation.

Just like to add.

Be careful if you are using a raw egg. I don't think you would but just in case. I just like to point this out as I have magicians asking me about using real raw eggs. It is better to use boiled egg if you think of using real eggs. Usually magicians use realistic looking eggs but they are not real.

You can also "make" a good egg for this by blowing one out. Take a large pin and poke a hole in each end of the egg. Use the pin to break the yellow. Now blow on one of the holes (do this outside or over something to catch the goop). You may have to make the exit hole a little bigger. You will be able to blow all of the white and yellow liquid out of the egg. Let it dry a couple of days, and you have a realistic "fake" egg.

One could also be more "hard boiled" in your approach..(and use only one real egg)

Hi guys,

A couple of incorrect facts posted here that I'd like to correct.

1. A couple of people mentioned you need to use an assistant. Our gimmick is made in such a way that no assistant is needed. It is very funny when egg after egg (or ping pong balls) pop out of your own mouth!

2. Some here might be posting about another version of EGGS FROM MOUTH. One is available now from another source - they call it the same thing but it is NOT at all similar to ours. The competitor's versions just comes with a few plastic eggs and tells you to palm the eggs.

Our UMSI version does NOT come with any eggs, plastic or otherwise. We supply a special gimmick that provides the illusion. You use any eggs or ping pong balls - therefore, the number of eggs you can produce is UNLIMITED!

Because of the automatic misdirection that our gimmick and routine provides, it is very easy to learn. It will take some practice, but no special skill.

3. Your mouth is shown clearly to be EMPTY after each egg is removed. And neither you nor your volunteer's hand ever comes near the mouth before each appearance.

4. Eggs are real and can be cracked open to prove so.

5. The routine we supply is perfect for kids and adults alike.

6. We include BONUS INSTRUCTIONS WHICH EXPLAIN HOW YOU CAN EASILY MAKE ALL THE EGGS VANISH AT THE END!

For a trick costing only $19.98, you receive an effect worth hundreds. Your audience will be in stiches. We sell out of this trick every time we've had it at a convention.

There is a video demonstration on our site.

I also want to add the same comment.... I bought this gimmick a few years ago and I never opened the package until last night. I just kept it in my collection.

I was sad to say that I got instructions for a floating match on card trick.

I am very displeased with abracadabra and have apprehenstions about investing more money into their sales.

I take the blame though, I should have opened it immediately.

Buyer be ware.

The other trick/routine that was mentioned above was created by David Devent of Egyptian Hall fame. When he had a command performance before the queen of england (I guess that would have been queen victoria) and Devent could have performed anything at all, including all the big illusions of the day, he choose instead to perform the eggs from hat routine.

Rboker: I was on your site to buy the eggs from mouth but for a 2 ounce item I thought the shipping was way out of line, but... but then you hit me with "You need to order something more to reach our minimum."

SO FORGET IT.

This trick goes back as far as Howard Thurston who use to use a "volunteer" from the audience. I'm sure the trick was old when Thurston did it. He once got in trouble for doing it in India because he chose a Hindu boy to do the trick with. Since eggs were considered unclean, the boy had to do penance.

I did this trick when I started to do magic as a kid. It was in the first book I got from the library, Hokus Pokus by Ib Permin. In the version he explains, you can't show your mouth empty each time. Must be a different method.

Also, this trick was done in the goofy movie Airplane. http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=1390

Did the same thing Pete, $25 min. order.
Thought I was ordering wholesale..lol..

No thanks, With the shipping charges that was posted, Not sure why a min. order was needed to begin with.
Guess they lost at least 2 orders because of it.
