The Other Hand

Postby Michael Rubinstein » August 20th, 2021, 11:08 am

This is a routine that I created to honor my friend David Roth. It combines his idea of using props and some of his most famous lines with my own style. it is my new closing number of my act, and the closest thing to a "Roth" type routine that I have ever created. Still smoothing out the rough edges so it will eventually be perfect, but wanted to share. I hope you enjoy it!!

What a wonderful gift!
The end was unexpectedly amazing!! ^_^
Thanks a lot for sharing!

By the way, I have a little trunk exactly like that one you showed at the beginning of the video!
It was one of our wedding gift, and I use it to keep my card magic props.

Michael, this a beautifully constructed and executed homage to David. Bravo!

Thank you everyone for the nice and supportive comments! When I perform this I can actually hear David's voice reciting his most iconic lines.

Hi. I had taken this video down because it was a work in progress, but here is an updated handling with a slightly different ending. I will take this down again at some point, but I hope you enjoy it.
