Just a few ????
There is one the producers asked me to insert that I wasn't crazy about...but they made other helpful suggestions as well so you just go with the flow.

Hey Andy, I don't know what happened with the first line. I wrote "Just a few" with a smile emoji, and then I looked and there were a bunch of question marks. Don't know what that was all about.

Thanks to all who watched the show last night! And here is the special announcement for those who are interested...

https://youtu.be/4DAHCkdrTcc

On Penn and Teller Fool Us, Dr. Michael Rubinstein performed his NEW coin plot, The OTHER Hand. A true showpiece lasting 5 minutes, Rubinstein anticipated an interest from magicians who wanted to learn and perform the routine. He decided to release a LIMITED EDITION Close-up version!
- Only 60 signed and numbered sets will ever be produced!
- No elaborate set-up. All you need are the supplied props and a Close-up pad, and you are good to go!
- Beautiful props include a wood box, a TCC coin purse, and a specially made silicone hand, perfect for the close-up version!
- The 1 hour 42 minute video tutorial is a complete course in sleight of hand. In addition to learing the routine in meticulous detail, you will learn such sleights the Variation Retention Pass, R.O.P.S. click pass technique, Stealth palm, and more! Front and back views make learning easy!
- Many extras included such as:
1. Optional spellbound sequence.
2. Alternative methods for performance including the use of JW grip and sleeving.
3. Optional kicker ending of a large coin finish!
4. Included with the tutorial as well is the complete set-up and explanation for the stage version, exactly as performed on Fool Us!
Here's what other magicians have to say:

"This is such a baffling and entertaining piece of magic. The props are charming and fun and the tutorial is superb. You get a very workable routine that can be performed under most conditions. Michael has really hit it out of the park with this one!"
-Marc DeSouza

"If you love fun, quirky, entertaining coin magic, look no further. Dr. Rubinstein has put together a wonderful homage to Roth with this routine. On top of that, the props included are fantastic!"
- Rick Holcombe

"The Doctor has done it again, creating a whimsical and entertaining routine with interesting props called “The Other Hand”. It's modular, so you can plug and play what you like and easily change portions to suit your performing preferences Two thumbs (including the other hand) WAY UP!"
- Mike Peckham

"The good doctor has struck gold (again) with his new release "The Other Hand". A true show stopper guaranteed to fool and entertain all audiences! If you love close-up magic that packs a wallop then don't wait...GET IT!!!"
- Mike Gallo

Priced at $150, these will be sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike. For ordering information, contact:

Checkout the video to see the props up close and hear my thoughts.

Thanks Nev, glad you enjoyed it! The show version is not as versatile as the close-up version, but it is great for larger audiences.

Audience expectations have changed over the years and you seem to be keyed into that flow.
Too bad the focus of the show is "fool me" rather than creating a magical experience for the audience.
Even your puns were acceptable Smile Wish we could have been watching the audience instead of the hosts.
Glad you got to share this with us.

Thanks so much! The producers impress upon you (and Penn and Teller have also said so publicly) that the focus of the show is really to showcase good magic. The Fool Us thing was just a gimmick to get the show to air. The fooling them thing seems to vary. They don't seem to explain every nuance of the trick, they just focus on the basic idea and that seems to be enough. I have no idea if they really got the whole thing (I had several surprises in there - the appearance of the copper coin, the complete vanishes, and the double ending), but it is bad television to get into a back and forth with them, so you accept that they said enough in their discussion that Mike Close (the judge) tells them that they got it. Sure, it is fun to win the trophy (my wife equates it to the lamp from A Christmas Story and would have NOT put it in the window lol) the real honor is being accepted to perform on national TV twice. Grateful to ave had the opportunity also to honor Roth.
PS - due to Covid, still no live audience.
