Hi there-I have a mailbag escape complete with escape shackles, however,
I need some pointers on making this thing funny. I usually have my wrists
locked up, step into the bag and have it quickly pulled up over my face, escape
one wrist then pull the bag down again, this plays for a few times but soon
gets old. Does anyone have any suggestions on making this thing more
comedic?
Thanks,
AC

Sure....we used to do it years ago for charity events. Before you get into the mailbag, have it examined by a spectator. Inside they will find all kinds of tools - hammer, saw, bolt cutters, an imitation stick of Dynamite - use your imagination. Also used some music. We used "I want to break free" by Queen. I know it's cheap, but it got a reaction. Also under the performer's shirt was hidden a latex face mask, so that a "different" person came out of the bag. We used a Michael Jackson mask back then, but I guess this would not be appropriate these days, but anything would do, a clown mask perhaps?
