SIX MORE STAND-UP EFFECTS FROM MARTIN LEWIS
In the third volume of his Making Magic series, Martin presents strong, audience-tested material from his parlor act. He shows you, in a step-by-step hands-on guide, how to make the props on your kitchen table quickly and easily, with only basic tools and materials, needing no special skills. Then, in live performance, see how the apparatus is used to really Make Magic.
INSTANT COFFEE – A few coffee beans tossed into a paper cup turn into real hot coffee.
NIGEL – This is a revival of that old chestnut, the Soup Plate and Handkerchief. It features Martin’s excellent work on the Gravity Pull.
COUPONS – Is a torn and restored newspaper page. The beauty of Martin’s method is, you end clean and can immediately hand out the restored paper.
BANK JOB – The audience helps solve a crime in this highly customizable mystery with a surprise finish.
COAT, ROPES, AND RINGS – Martin has featured this stage-size version of Grandmother’s Necklace for over forty years. Here he tips it all.
THE TEST – A polka dot handkerchief and a red gift box, when placed into a paper bag, mysteriously transpose. The audience suspects a switch, so it comes as a huge surprise when you crumple the bag and toss it out.
