This was obviously on television somewhere far, far away.

I had never seen a full Cups and Balls routine with the Indian Cups. It is . . .
certainly worth watching for those of you who love the effect.

Even includes the "Vernon Wand Spin" and "Striking Vanish". Does this mean that those flourishes/moves are actually older than Dai Vernon and David Williamson???

Nice video. Didn't care much for the patter. (I'd really like to punch that guy in the throat; "Digga digga dee, digga digga dee!")

Great find Kent! I love the indian cups and balls. I first learned about the Indian cups and balls from an Indian gentleman, a visiting magician over 15 years ago. For some reason, I never thought about it again for years. My interest in the Indian cups and balls was rekindled when I met Pete Biro in the Café some years back. I own several cups today and particularly love the set I got from Pete.

That was one of the best Indian Routines I have seen.

Rannie: Any chance us seeing your version of this classic? I had a set for awhile and never fully embraced the style required for the routine, however, I do appreciate their elegance.

I do have a full routine but never got the chance to have it on video. Perhaps when I return to Manila I will. Thanks for reminding me. You still in SD Doug? I'm in L.A. right now!

Thanks for sharing Kent. He is a very skilled performer.

I'm with Stanyon concerning the patter though... It was very entertaining once I hit the mute button.

I think the performer was imitating Pete Biro's patter.

I am bringing SEVERAL sets of Indian Cups to WMS to sell. Including two sets of TAYADE'S with the beautiful Wands.

BTW... THANKS FOR FINDING THAT KENT.

Man, what I would give if I could sit like that. His routine has a lot of western influence, compared to other Jadoowalla workers I have seen.

I wish we had a clip of Shankar Junior. He's the one that really influenced me and my way of presentation.

I talk about seeing him when he was 12 years old (true) and he had a very high and squeeky voice. So I do an impression of him speaking in Indian DOUBLE TALK. Much like this guy, but not so repetitive.

Few of the Indian workers use a larger final load and he's the only one I've seen do wand spins.

Save me a set.

Still less annoying than chants of "Bill Malone, Bill Malone..." Smile
