I read in David Kaye's "Seriously Silly" book that a good sword through neck routine should last a good 10-15 minutes before the sword is put through the neck. My question is, what are some good routines and ideas to make this trick last this lenght, or a bit shorter?

I can't think of anything. The reason I'm wondering is because I will be getting a sword through neck very soon.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the help in advance.

Talk about the history of the sword and how criminals used to get punished for committing a crime in the past.

Make it look as if the sword sliced a banana. (pre sliced)

Pop a balloon with the sword to show it is pointy. (pin on the end)

Add humor as if you are searching for someone in the audience to put the sword thru. It can be done with a spectator if you want to.

Thanks Dynamike, I appreciate it.

Anyone else have anything they'd like to add?

Take a Sharpie marker and draw the face of the spectator that you are going to use on the balloon. Say you are going to use the balloon as a "crash test dummy". Pop the balloon in the stocks.

Do you really think a sword through the neck (usually a female neck) is entertaining?

It all depends on how it is performed. If it is done right, it is entertaining.
