Moving on with the topic at hand...

Once I was working a restaurant gig and actually forgot the key to my thumbcuffs...not really a big deal, until I realized it AFTER I locked the spectators thumbs in the cuffs!!!

Reason being was I had borrowed my sister's car to drive to work as mine was in the shop; so I had her keys, not mine (which had the cuff key on it). I would've paid money to see the look on my face when I reached in my pocket for the key and realized it was the wrong set! On top of all that, the guy was rather large and had bulky thumbs! As fate would have it, this is right when the food came...

Anyway, I quickly ran to the restroom and got a palm full of liquid soap...the soap worked as a hearty grease alternative and I was able to wriggle his thumbs free. After nearly having a heart attack, I quickly quipped, "Well, at least this saves you a trip to the restroom to wash up!"

Luckily he was a good sport about it.

Good thinking on the soap. I've found that if you hold the hands above the head, the swelling will go down. I've used that technique a couple of times when getting someone to remove a ring.

I did a swanky New Year's Eve party one year and left my case at home. I had no option but to go down to Walgreen's and buy some sharpies and playing cards.

The party was divided into two parts. The kids were in one area and the adults were in a casino-themed room. I was supposed to work 1 hour for the kids and 1 hour for the adults. Needless to say, an all-card act went fine with the adults but man it was brutal working with the kids.

I'll never leave my case at home again. Smile

Yeah Charlie C, I could totally understand how rough that must have been. 1 hour with a deck of cards and a bunch of kids must have been crazy. What tricks did you do for them?

Oh yes,I remember doing a roulett routine with staple guns and for got to bring the block of wood to peirce the staple in at the end of the routine. I had to prove that that was the only gun with the staples in it, so unfortenetly the cassandra deck took the blow, lesson learnd, check everything twice before I perform.
