Three Stand-Out Stand-Up Routines (Sept 2012)

Discuss the tricks and sleights which appear in Genii.

The September Magicana is a boon for stage performers, with three big routines filling the column: Neil Croswell's "Angry Birds Live," David Gabbay's "iProduction Box," and Master Payne's "Schrodinger's Bottles." Close-up workers might want to take pictures of the props, then print them on playing cards and perform the routines as packet tricks.

I agree! I've seen two outstanding Multiplying Bottle routines over the years: Roger Benoit's inspired presentation that begins in a fairly straightforward way, but during the routine, he starts taking sips of the alcohol, and by the end, he's completely smashed. And Master Payne's wonderful "Quantum Physics" presentation.

Here's a video of the bottle routine being done at a local arts festival earlier this year.
