Up In Smoke by Paul Cummins
There are seven routines on this DVD. Four of the
coin routines involve the "underhanded" process that allows for extremely clean
handling and must be performed standing. Two of the coin routines are performed on the
table-top. Finally, there is a bonus card routine, performable where ever you have a
little table space and three willing spectators.
There are four sections to the DVD, each with its
own submenus for easy access. One section is performance only. Another section explains
virtually every coin sleight used within all six coin routines (including the Gallo Pitch,
an outstanding substitute for the venerable Han Ping Chien), those sleights NOT limited to
the "underhanded" process. The third section describes the how-to of each
routine, and finally, the last section has the performance and explanation of the bonus
card routine. All of the sleights and routines are explained in great detail.
Effects Included on this DVD:
The Invisible Hand – An absolutely baffling coin vanish and reproduction,
performed stand-up and surrounded. May be performed in one’s bathing suit!
Citation Silver –Bob Elliott’s wonderful stand-up routine in which a
copper and a silver coin switch places, multiply, and change inexplicably. Performed and
explained with Bob’s permission.
Pitchin’ Penetration – A
lead-them-down-the-garden-path-and-turn-on-the sprinkler effect, this stand-up routine
allows the performer to push a half-dollar through flesh and change two half-dollars into
a silver dollar very, very cleanly.
Underhanded Coins Across – A classic: the stand-up coins across.
Underhanded methodology leaves no fathomable clue for your spectators and the routine
introduces a new sequence in which the last two coins travel from hand to hand without
the hands coming together at all!
The above routines introduce my handling and performance management of
an old sleight-of-hand utility device that has been updated and made extremely practical.
Great emphasis has been put on detailed explanation of this ‘underhanded’
Top Billing – The original Matrix routine using paper currency for covers,
this routine has been a worker for over 25 years when table-hopping at restaurants and
KnihC – A – Knihc – This version of the Chink – A –
Chink plot features an astounding instant reversal. An extremely easy
routine to perform that will stun your audiences.
Another Sequestered Collectors – The Bonus Card Routine for this tape, a
collectors effect that is notably direct and uncluttered, it is the only routine of its
genre that I use for the laity.
