I dont think this routine can be performed better, and John has omitted my favourite sequence in the original wherein a ball vanishes as its poured out from the shot glass over a mouth-down cup, then the cup is lifted, revealing the ball beneath it.

Thanx a million for the nice comments.
Didn't know the video was out on YouTube.
I haven't done the routine in years now (I was 16 at the time... that's 26 years ago...) , but maybe I put it back again. It's a really great routine Gary routined.

It's a nice routine. It's too bad the Camirand Academy has not released any of the Goblet sets again. I used to own a set, but for some reason sold it years ago. They were nicely made with a distinctive design, though an extra cup I acquired at the time eventually split at the rim.

And those guys from Montreal, never know how to pronounce their names
Acer, is it ace-her or a-ker?
Huot is it you-hot or hewitt?
Camirands, is it cam-he-ran or cam-hi-rand?

"Acer" is pronounced like Liberace ("lin-er-otch-ee"), so it's "Otch-eee."

In fact, in Canada, all of the "-ace" words are pronounced this way, so here, we do Four Ot-chee Tricks.

In fact, even in a Tennis game when someone does a serve that the opponant can't touch, we , canadians, call this an Ot-Chee

I'm coming to LA for 6 weeks in a month. Should I add 'dude' to my working vocab? Do I need to say it in a Bill and Ted style?

Rent Baseketball and watch the scene (between Trey and Matt) where the dialog is just the word "dude" repeated 7 or 8 times.
