Miracles From The Sock Drawer by Paul Gallagher - DVD
"Miracles From The Sock Drawer
by Paul Gallagher
Paul Gallagher, a close personal friend and protege of the late Derek Dingle, is a professional entertainer with an encyclopedic knowledge of practical magic. He's the guy you hope to bump into at the magic shop or convention, so he can show you all of those cool things you never knew, but wished you did, about the effect or routine you're working on at the moment. Paul has finally been cajoled into sharing with us some of his favorite ideas and applications for a variety of standard effects that most magicians have purchased, perused, and then thrown into their sock drawers.
In 'MIRACLES FROM THE SOCK DRAWER' Paul presents a potpourri of over fifty effects, routines, presentation tips, and performance applications from the working repertoire of a full-time professional magician.
Paul has pulled material from over a century of published thinking, as well as tips and hints collected over the years in quiet sessions among magicians in the back rooms of magic shops, conventions, and performing venues. Adding great ideas from his friends and from his own work experiences, Paul gives us almost six hours of entertaining and educational material in his 'MIRACLES FROM THE SOCK DRAWER'.
Some favorites are:
21st Century Blind Date - Did you know that the Internet now offers a service that combines computer dating with GPS positioning technology, taking you right to the home of your beautiful computer date? Your audience will learn about this new technological miracle when you demonstrate using two props probably tossed into your sock drawer long ago.
Identity Theft - You explain how bank tellers and retailers are taught to avoid the theft of credit card info, but alas your spectator's identity is stolen right out of her own hands. A classic sock drawer prop is dusted off and turned into a starling effect.
Paul's Diet Surprise - Rice and water in the twenty-first century? Not very topical. Here's a sensible presentation for any version of this standard, with a bonus finale taken from a different effect that was created by a magic legend.
Through The Heart - A very different, and slightly creepy, presentation for the Needle-Thru-Balloon that includes a new and surprising finale. Finally you won't be doing this classic drawer effect exactly like every other magician!
D'Lited - You gather spots of light from the air, tossing them one at a time into a cloth bag. As a climax, the bag is ripped open to display a glowing image... whatever you like!
Running Time: Over 5.5hrs!
