Am thinking of developing a 3-minute SJ escape presentation in my stand-up show.

The plan is to get 3 volunteers up on stage to do the tying up sequence and then launch into the routine with another volunteer being the time-keeper calling out time every 15 secs.

Would love to be able to interject one-liners throughout the escape process.

Any one-liners that would come in handy would be greatly appreciated.

I've seen Simon do this routine at Monday Night Magic in Manhattan. If he offers this routine on video, I would highly recommend getting it. It's totally hilarious.
Best regards, Tony Parisi

Hank Moorehouse performs a very funny Straight Jacket to "The Stripper Music Theme" a very old song.

So many do this and so many do it the same...argh...

Funny young Nathan Burton does it with a clear vinyl jacket and it is really funny, his face squished up under it, etc.

I wrote a gag for this effect. You finish in two or three minutes, take a bow, walk off holding the jacket and as you come back on to take another bow you are BACK IN THE JACKET. In seconds.

Olsen and Johnson, in vaudeville, years ago, had a takeoff on Houdini (who was popular at the time).

They had a guy put into a jacket and put behind a screen, every once in awhile they would check his progress. He'd be writhing on the floor unable to get out... soon, he would be sporting a beard. Each time they checked the beard would be LONGER AND LONGER...

Finally, he never got out, and when the audience left the guy was rolling around on the floor of the lobby with a ten foot long beard, still trying to get out as the patrons left the theater.

Dan Lorinitas does the funniest jacket routine I've ever seen. The music he uses changes from "Who Let the Dogs Out" (and a small dog puppet emerges from the top of the jacket to a Michael Jackson song (and a silver-sequined glove pops out the bottom) while he moonwalks across the stage.

He performed at the St. Louis Jubilee a couple years ago and got rave reviews.

Hey! I'm finally a Dot Com!
