I see that his routine appears in one of the British close-Up Symposium. I'll see if I could put my hand on it. Thanks.

Peter Rosengren shakes the cup to "make the sound appear", explaining that when you hear the ball, you can feel the ball.

In-the hand cups and balls routine - MAGIC Magazine

I've been told that an in-the-hand cup(s) or chop cup routine appeared in MAGIC magazine some time ago. I'm on the look out for a routine that I could perform in the spectator's hand in strolling situation. If anybody could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate. Magic magazine used to have...

My first encounter with magic that I can recall was Marshall Brodien selling magic on TV. I was 5 and that's what got me hooked to this wonderful form of art. One of my most memorable real life experience with magic was a performance of David Roth's Portable Hole by a local magician. I still remembe...

erdnasephile,

You're right. I saw DC doing his routine 20 years ago and I recall that it was really good. I often use this as an example when I tell people how David Copperfield is a great magician and that he can take a common magic store item and make it much better than anyone else.

Hi,

Is there any show? A magic shop? Anything magic related?
