Re: Credit for Celebrity Prediction Gag?

Just after posting the above i received this from well known UK Comedy magician and old friend Terry Herbert. "I am afraid I have to correct you regarding the Baby Gag. You probably did not know it but I originated the Black Baby Gag on the reverse side of the White Baby Picture. This was the o...

Re: Credit for Celebrity Prediction Gag?

Heiny 500/ Hundy 500

Can these effects be done with blank paper to notes as the original Easy Money could ? In Australia we have "plastic" money. It doesnt fold too well and the notes are slightly different sizes. It's always difficult to find out if the new USA money miracles can be done with different curren...

Re: Pecking Bird

My particular favourite Pecking Bird routine is certainly Don Alan's Ranch Bird. Three others I recall are, one by Peter Warlock [it's in "One Hundred by Warlock ' page164. No doubt Richard can tell you how to get this.] and there's one in Gen ,I believe it's the issue with June Merlin on the c...

Re: Max Maven Article

The first effect in the Max issue Electile Dysfunction is topical here in OZ due to the forthcoming election on Nov 24th. In the USA it will be topical for a year I have used some of the Tarot cards from the second effect to do the first. I use seven of the Major Arcana and use them to select a new ...

Re: Michael Close's New Book

You hear a great joke and you cant wait to tell it to your friends, it gets a big laugh and you continue to tell it until you hear another great joke and the cycle starts again. Youd think that after a while you would have a string of great jokes but unfortunately it doesnt work that way. Roger Mill...

Giorgio on Freak Shows

I just read Tony Giorgio's Intermission-The Giorgio Letters page 70-71 in September Genii and by co-incidence was playing in the background the latest Mark Knopfler CD "The Ragpickers Dream". The inspiration for the second track on the album could have come from reading the Giorgio article...
