ARTICLE: Finding an Ideal Commando Show Case   $10

The Commando Show is a concept created by genius magicians,  Penn & Teller.  The show is performed standup and contains highly visual magic.  The Commando Show sets up quickly in front of the audience, may be brought on stage as you’re introduced, and can be done “in the round” without worrying about angles.  It is carried in an “always-ready-to-go” case that packs light; qualifies as airline carry-on luggage; and moves fast between cars, trains and busses.  This article addresses these issues and suggests particular products.  One is surprisingly affordable.

Also included are detailed designs for a practical, durable magician’s road case that can be checked as airline baggage; holds plenty of props for a 90 minute show; and divides into two side-tables for a spectacular stage, cabaret or stand-up show.

But when hung, it looks luxuriously awesome without breaking the bank.

The Just Right Glass for “The Nut Waltz,” Vernon’s Favorite   $45

This is the just-right gaffed glass needed for the classic “Nut Waltz.”  It is a cups and balls style routine.  The unique plot is beautifully simple: One at a time, three walnuts disappear from the magician’s hands and reappear – without a sound – under a clear downturned glass covered by the most simple paper tube.  The props can accommodate large final loads.  To say the least it is elegant and seems impossible. The Nut Waltz can be performed for cabaret, parlor or formal close-up. NOTE: Instructions may be found in the The Vernon Chronicles. This is just the right affordable glass for the routine.  Shipping is free in the Continental USA.
