Does anyone know of a 1st class performance of Rice Bowls by an 1st class Magic Entertainer? Thank you.
Thank you,

Charlie Miller, and it can be found on the video he did for Stevens Magic, which has been put out on DVD by Twin Cities.

Are you looking for a video or a routine that's in print?

I saw Charlie perform this in person. I believe he used an Al Baker set of Rice Bowls. Charlie's presentation was like everything he did, charming and idiosycratic to his personality. Copying him would be a waste of time.

Thank everyone. I was just curious and also I really do not view many Magic videos. Preferring to use my own routine with my Rice Bowls and understanding we all dislike copy cats, today I am entertained on how others enjoy displaying their personal routines. Books are my passion now and I am considering purchasing a book called Theater Of The Mind. Hopefully it is good.
Thank you,

Geoffrey Durham has a beautiful rice bowl routine in Professional Secrets using a Brahmin bowl (it also happens to be a great lesson in rhythm and magic), and there is a very nice routine with the Al Baker bowls in Roy Benson by Starlight.

My recommendation echoes Nathan's. For a contemporary (read: modern) magician, Geoffrey Durham's routine is near perfect.

I got a set of the Al Baker bowls after reading the routine in Bruce Eliot's classic secrets. But I ended up going back to Al Baker's handling from the original instructions, which worked much better for me.

Geoff,

Are the Baker bowls currently being manufactured by someone, or did you purchase an older set?

Best,

I was one of the select few who watched Charlie perform the Rice Bowls at Joe Stevens taping for the Greater Magic video series here in Wichita. It was a blast to meet and watch one of my hero's. Wonderful memories of having the pleasure the chat with him for a few minutes. Thanks Joe!
