But David -- there's no pictures, no co-packed DVD, just words... How am I supposed to figure out this routine?
Actually, I saw Tom do this at the Eureka Springs Cavalcade of Magic a few springs ago and it really was hilarious. By the time, Tom did the balloon routine we were already laughing so hard it hurt -- the balloon bit just killed -- especially the spectator.
When I add some balloon animals to the end of a birthday show, I will use the change bag and allow each kid to pick their balloon from it. I've already pegged the "tough guys" in the crowd so they get the treatment. Too bad I can't do balloon animals.
Hey David -- how about a pictureless, DVD-less section on balloon twisting. Something simple like a life sized Darth Vader or Pam Anderson?
