Shoe Business - Scott Alexander & Puck
This is Scott Alexander and Pucks answer to the Vanishing Bandana. It is a modern take on the old premise that can quickly find a place for 6 minutes of laughter in anyones act.
This is a well thought out routine that's been worked over and over on real world stages. Just combine a bottle of water with a borrowed shoe and you now have six minutes of Hilarious Comedy without skimping on the Magic!
Scott Alexander and Puck have been performing "Shoe Business" on cruise ships all around the world and it never ceases to generate big laughs while still getting great reactions to the magic!
You borrow a shoe from a member of the audience and tell them you are going to teach them a practical joke
You call the "Practical Joke Hotline" on speaker phone to teach the audience a funny gag. You make a mistake following the instructions and inadvertently fill a spectators shoe with a bottle of liquid. This six minutes of comedy is virtually self working as all you do is follow the audio instructions like the old Vanishing Bandana Trick. What makes this routine so great is the tremendous amount of built in laughs as well as a surprise magical finish that really fools the audience. This is a fresh and modern take on the " Magician in Trouble " premise.
Shoe Business comes complete with Written Script that includes Directors Notes, Audio CD, Performance DVD, and Special Glass

the glass. "That's Science," explains the performer. Slowly the performer
pulls away the piece of paper and the water stills remains suspended in the
glass. "That's Magic!" Now holds a container under the glass and on
his or the spectators command the water will suddenly drop from the glass "And
A great classic of magic.
Difficult to find a nice one. But finally I have some that look nice. Made from
a standard but very nice plastic tumbler that actually looks like glass.
And of course MY instructions!
A chosen card is placed into the GHOST CARD FRAME, and the entire frame is covered with a silk. The silk is then removed to reveal the card has vanished. Magician reaches into his pocket and reveals the chosen card and puts it back into the frame. It is covered once more by the silk. The silk is then removed and the frame reveals another card. The magician asks if the card is indeed the chosen card. The audience states it is not and the magician hastily covers the frame with the silk. The silk is then removed to reveal the chosen card.
Packs flat for carrying... Assuming that you actaully use it and just keep it on your shelf in your extensive Mikame collection!

The sleeves are pulled up and the coat is opened but the cage has completely vanished! This is one of the most popular effects in stage magic and should be in every magicians repertoire. This beautiful all-metal cage is meticulously hand-crafted and may easily be held in one hand prior to performance, yet vanish instantly with very little effort.

The Vanishing Bird Cage is a classic piece of magic, created by Bautier de Kolta, (who designed this as a cylindrical cage), redesigned by De Biere in the rectangular form familiar today, and made famous by the Blackstones (Senior and Junior) and the incredible sleeves up version by Tommy Wonder. as an outstanding magical illusion. Because of the set up and handling required for effective performance, it is also an item attempted by very few performers.

(Supply your own canary!)
Imagine making a bird cage vanish into thin air! For example, show a small bird in a cage. Set him free and show the audience he is free forever by making his former home disappear! An excellent and impressive finale.
