I carry a shoelace and string in a coin purse for Dan Turcotte's ring/string routine. I also have a couple of half-dollars for a brief coin routine, and some rubber bands for CMHC. A pen works for Gregory Wilson's "Re-Capped" as well as just wadding up paper or using some other objects for Wilson's Pitch and Ditch.

I too like performing the "Re-capped". Also I perform "crazy man handcuff", "paper balls over the head", "penetrating magic maker caps", "Jumping match or paper clip", "money roll", "wonderland bill" kept in my wallet, and a couple coin sleights to include "Toll Free". I always try to use something that is lying around.

I like productions, but then again, I almost always wear a sport coat.

Because I usually have a pen with me, I do "Coin in pen cap", don't remember who by. David Roth's "Hanging Coins" is also good as I always have pocket change.
When I carry specific items, Paul Harris's Reality twister and Vitamin M.

I finally remember (after 5 months) the name of the impromptu book by Ken Weber..."Lifesavers". Many impromptu effects that are very creative and off the beaten path. Hard to find but Worth finding a copy of this fantastic book .

Lifesavers is indeed a fantastic book and I´m glad You finally remembered it.
I think You mean Michael Weber though,
Ken Weber is the writer of the Five-Minute Mysteries :,)

I love "Pile of Change" by Richard Sanders which is on the first DVD of The Richard Sanders Show and it's also in the latest issue of Genii. You turn a spectator's penny into a quarter and then give them the quarter to keep, but you don't lose any money when you perform it. Totally impromptu, you don't need to have anything on you.

I would have to say Pinnicale, I normally always have a rubberband and a ring with me. Also it works great with keyrings. If I have nothing then I just turn my feet around backwards.

Hands down "The Ring Thing" by Garrett is probably the most visually appealling impromptu quick effect

Hey Brad
Is that anything like "rhing thing' by Vince Mendoza?

Wow...I'm seeing a lot of post on rubberbands. Does everyone wear rubberbands on their wrist everytime they leave the house? Anyways, I'm not hating on that, I love rubberbands. You can almost get at least 15mins. if not more of magic out of them. Ummmm...., my favorite has always been to borrow a quarter from someone. I ask them if their able eo keep a secret, and they normally say yes. Then I tell them that I had recently been to NASA's Space Center and had found something rather interesting, the world smallest and strongest magnet. Then I just go into the anti-gravity coin thing. I do it once vertically and horizontally. Then you can do a coin thru hand, coin from your hand to their pocket,etc. You can do a bunch of stuff with just the one borrowed coin.
One for the money...., 2 for a pass..., 3 for a Fly..., and 4 for matrix!

Another vote here for crazy mans handcuffs, it's a great effect that slays. I'm also partial to some spoon bending and on the theme of cutlery there's a great effect in Weber's 'Lifesavers' which sees you sit at a table to dine, your companion notes that there is no spoon at their place setting. To rectify this the performer magically splits his own spoon into two. Simple but effective.

A bill switch can be done virtually impromptu and is a great effect in restaurants, bars, or anywhere you can borrow a bill.

One of my favorite card effects is the torn and restored card, which can be done almost impromptu (see Expert Card Technique for a couple methods).

Greg Wilson has some pretty effective impromptu tricks on his videos On the Spot. Stevens Magic also put out some tapes on Impromptu Magic that were pretty good.

At a moments notice, a one coin routine, Pinnacle ( 3 phase rubberband effect), transposition of my ring and a coin (it's in my new book).
