Get some laughs at the dinner table with this one!
Float into the Room! Effect: Your head comes into view in the doorway, as though you are sideways—maybe even flying.(Photo #1)You go up and down the door jamb (photo #2), then jump down, landing in the doorway, and walk into the room.Talk about a dramatic entrance! A fun stunt to do for friends or family, or to make an entrance to begin a show.
I use this in my show as a comic interlude. It usually gets a good laugh! I hope you’ll have fun with it. Effect: You “hypnotize” a spectator who sits in a chair holding a cup of water atop her head. When she looks in the cup, the water has disappeared, without her knowing where it went! The audience knows and thinks it’s funny!
Set a cup of water on the table. Cover it with a sheet of newspaper. Claim that you can drink the water without touching the newspaper! Sounds impossible? Here’s how:
A glass of water is on the table. “I am going to go out of the room”, you explain, “and I’ll bet the water will be gone before I walk back in.” Would you take this bet?
I have a special paper here that when you look at it, you will see upside down. Would you like to see it? You show it to them and they see upside down!
Ask someone to jot their favorite book on a slip of paper, then cover it with their hand, so you can’t peek. With a little concentration, believe it or not, you can tell them what’s on the paper! How?
“When you drop a playing card on the table”, you demonstrate to a spectator, “it lands on 1 side or the other. Can you drop it, from a height of at least 1 foot, so it lands on its edge?”
Complain that your neck has been hurting. Mention that you think you might have a case of Dog Jaw. Ask the person you’re showing this to if they’ve ever heard of Dog Jaw?
