I am looking ideas on what to do for a publicity stunt. Basically I do a lot of travelling and want something relatively simple and cheap but effective. I do work in a lot of theatres out of town, and I think this would be a good idea to attract the local media.

The old standby is the headline prediction. It gives you two shots at the media. The first news is making the prediction and the second is when the prediction is checked against the headline.

Another good one is the "HOUDINI STRAIT JACKET ESCAPE" yes the capitals are to get the attention of the local papers. Great effect and to do it in front of City Hall or the main Police Station gets attention.

Magic Grandpa Here:

It depends where you're performing. Assuming it's America, you'll need to more sophisticated in the North East area. Same with most of West coast. I have found you can get away with real simpleton type stuff in the south. Things that would never fly in cosmopolitan areas. There are still areas there that belive in Voo Doo and third-world crud. You can use it to your advantage. I have.

So, where are your shows going to be? I'll give some good stuff that's worked for me.
I'm old as dirt; that's why there's no picture of me.
