Impossible Close-Up Magic by Ray Kosby
Ray Kosby is one of the most creative close-up magicians
you will see. He comes up with original and often offbeat effects and his methods are just
as wild. The strength behind his magic is that his routines will fool you. Audiences gasp
at his effects -- when they are not speechless all they can say is, WOW! Try to figure out
how he accomplishes the routines on this program without watching the explanations -- he
will absolutely fool you -- you will have no clue as to how Ray accomplishes these
Routines performed and explained:
- Silver and Bone: A two phase routine
which starts with a coin visually penetrating through your hand and concluding with a
visual transposition between a half dollar and a jumbo coin.
- Sidewinder Pretzel: An ordinary pretzel
stick is bent at right angles and then twisted into the standard pretzel design.
- Rubber Nightmare: A large rubber band is
split into three equal sized bands and then the three bands are shown to be of different
lengths -- a small, medium and large. The professor's Nightmare with rubber bands?
- Square One: A startling coin assembly
with no covers where the coins assemble to one spot on the table and instantly jump back
to the four corners.
- The Bite: Ray's trademark routine where
he takes a bite out of a red apple and a moment later he is seen holding a green apple
with the same bite missing. No switches and no sleight-of-hand used.
- Twixt the Threads: A coin penetrates
through the center of a handkerchief.
- Osmosis: A ball visually penetrates
through the center of a clear plastic bag.
- The Picnic Trick: A can of soda is popped
open so the liquid splashes. You rub the opening of the can and it heals itself so it is
as good as new.
- 1 2 3 4: Four sponge cubes are produced
and placed in your fist. The fist is opened to show a giant number "4" made out
of sponge. The "4" is then ripped into four separate cubes.
The methods are all straight forward and vary in
difficulty from self-working to difficult. You will love the magic on this tape. Truly
something for everyone. Running time: Approximately 60 minutes.
