This one is called "at a loose end". It may help you get in the mood.

His stuff is smoothly done, but the routine is a little too risque for me. And, that is a lot of the comedic effect to the routine. The patter hides the moves.

Agreed

His cut and restored, where he runs the scissors to the middle of the rope, reminded me of the Vishnu rope cut, but seemed to be quite different. Is that method presented somewhere?

I think Steve Bedwell has the funniest comedy rope routine with a spectator from the audience. It is a beautifully constructed, beautifully thought-out routine that magicians should study just for the number of problems he has solved.

I second Whit's recommendation. Steve's routine is brilliant. Think paper balls over the head meets cut & restored. It really is a great routine.

That was not a vishnu rope mystery cut. He pulled a short piece out of his back pocket when he went for the scissors. I never saw it done like that before.

At a recent roast of a Jewish friend (his 70th Birthday) I just did the rope trick and it killed.

Not literally I hope?!

Yes, that was what I thought, but I don't think I've seen that move before, and was wondering if it appear anywhere? The set-up seemed quite clean, the "move"/switch wasn't completely natural looking, but better than I think I could accomplish that.

I have seen the little rope big rope moves before, but Steve Bedwell has the b***s to do it with two little pieces.

Here is a sweet move done by Roland Henning. The clip is in German, but Roland's magic is easy to follow.
