The Last Word on Cups and Balls

Eddie Joseph

The Last Word on Cups and Balls by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
Every piece of information - idea - suggestion and routine has been independently created, developed, exploited and tested by the author some time or other. The reader is therefore assured, he is not getting any "second-hand" material in consequence.

The colossal amount of material crammed between these covers, will provide the progressive manipulator with a wealth of valuable assets.

The book has been divided into three parts. The first supplies detailed explanation for nearly forty new moves and passes. The second is kept apart for the creation of novel effects...

Cups and Balls Magic

Thomas (Tom) Osborne

Cups and Balls Magic by Thomas (Tom) OsborneTom Osborne writes:
Cups and balls have been giving pleasure, as a magic trick, to generations of spectators. It is still regarded as one of the most outstanding of all magic effects. My gratitude to Dr. Henry Ridgeley Evans and to John Mulholland for writing the story of the cups and balls, so that all may appreciate the history of this classic of magic. Thanks to Bill Hanna for the illustrations which do so much to make the book come alive.
All the basic ball moves are described in detail using clear illustrations. A section of routines is described that will get you started on your way to devising your own methods and plots....

The Transparent Cups

Antonio Romero

The Transparent Cups by Antonio RomeroA stunning routine of unparalleled talent! The cups and balls with clear glasses - transparent cups. Antonio breaks new ground in close up magic with this effect. What an idea and what entertainment.
"Antonio breaks new ground in close-up magic. What a fabulous idea." - Arturo de Ascanio

"In my lifetime, I've seen some of the greatest "CUPS N BALL" routines performed by Dai Vernon, Mike Ammar, John Thompson, Charlie Miller, Johnny Paul and the many others with brilliant routines and moves & sleights. Antonio's routine is smashing and completely blew me away! You don't need an expensive set of cups for the cups and balls routine! Antonio...

Defective Cups and Balls

Paul A. Lelekis

Defective Cups and Balls by Paul A. LelekisPaul presents his multi-staged routine, Defective Cups & Balls which he has been performing for almost two decades!

Even Houdini once said, "You can't consider yourself a magician unless you can perform the Cups & Balls!"

Defective Cups & Balls has Paul's complete, hilarious patter and each stage of this routine becomes more and more "eye-popping" as the story goes on. Best, yet, this routine ends with not just a double - but a TRIPLE revelation that will have everyone, including the kids, completely FREAKED OUT! It just seems IMPOSSIBLE!

PLUS, this routine will get you a huge applause from...

Mo Howarth's Growing Under Glass

Aldo Colombini

Mo Howarth's Growing Under Glass by Aldo ColombiniIt's a sort of Cups and Balls routine, yet it is done with only one cup which is actually a glass. It's a Two In The Hand And One In The Pocket routine, using the glass instead of the hand. The glass has a paper cover yet things happen without cover and under cover. It is one of those brilliantly unusual effects that you will use most of the time. A glass covered with a piece of paper and three sponge balls are shown. One after the other the balls disappear and reappear under the glass. If you like, one appears BETWEEN the glass and the cover. Two balls are placed under the glass and one in...

Michael Skinner's Impromptu Cups and Balls Routine

Steve Pellegrino

Michael Skinner's Impromptu Cups and Balls Routine by Steve PellegrinoMichael Skinner's Impromptu Cups & Balls is one of the unpublished gems that he taught to a select few students. The routine was performed on The Tonight Show, June 1, 1973 when Michael was in the prime of his career.

Clips of the performance have been around on YouTube on and off for several years, but only a few people knew the complete work for the routine. Some have tried to duplicate it, but missed because they didn't understand Michael's subtleties and timing, especially his startling "Scatter Phase" where the 3 balls start out under the center cup and in a brief moment each ball appears...

Triple Colour Cups and Balls

Leo Leslie

Triple Colour Cups and Balls by Leo LeslieFrom the Foreword
"When the manuscript arrived from Denmark, Edwin asked me to look through it and give him an opinion. I was intrigued when I read it; whilst the moves appeared to be based on the old "Cups and Corks", Leo had added tremendous impact to it by the introduction of COLOUR. The whole routine seemed to 'live', and there's not a single sleight involved.

Admittedly, the 'Cups and Balls' has been done before in colour, but not with the clean simplicity of the present routine. So rake out that set of cups you have in the cupboard (or nip out and buy three plastic beakers), obtain...

The Cushions of the Princess: or the tomato game

Medjid K. Rezvani & Michael Landes

The Cushions of the Princess: or the tomato game by Medjid K. Rezvani & Michael LandesThis is a translation and reformatting of Les Coussinets de la Princesse by Medjid K. Rezvani.
"... it was quite a surprise, a positive one, when I received a preview copy of the ebook of this wonderful booklet. Translated by Michael Landes, it provides a clear interpretation of the routine. The routine, itself, is called "les Coussinets de la Princesse" -- the little cushions of the princess -- and is also known as "The Tomato Trick." It's a nice piece of story magic, as well as a darn good trick. The book goes into how to construct the close-up mat, the construction of the "cushions," the...

Maestro Leonardo Cups and Balls

Maestro Leonardo

Maestro Leonardo Cups and Balls by Maestro LeonardoThis is one of the most innovative cups and balls routines. Maestro Leonardo featured the routine in his IBM competition entry in 2008 in the UK and received a standing ovation from the audience. There are no moves in the routine that relate to any other cups and balls effects. The loads are invisible, and there is virtually no way that they can be spotted. Anyone who plans to use this routine and is prepared to put in the work perfecting it, could have a short act that is suitable for any kind of show venue. The Medieval Cups and Balls routine culminates with the production of water, a long...

4 Minutes of Fame

Michael Ammar

4 Minutes of Fame by Michael AmmarThis is an introductory offer. It will soon go to $14.95

A unique twist on the Cups and Balls that puts the spectator center stage! 4 Minutes of Fame is a very special Cups and Balls routine.

Based on a concept by Dick Williams. Starting about 12 years ago Michael and Dick corresponded about Dick's concept for having a spectator perform the routine while fooling himself, and Dick urged Michael to work out some of his ideas on it.

Long since retired, Dick loved to see a working professional spending time with his creation. His enthusiasm was contagious and inspirational. He was hoping...

Devlin Cups and Balls

David Devlin

Devlin Cups and Balls by David DevlinThis is not an ordinary Cups & Balls routine. In this routine the balls are three different colors. The cups are ordinary, yet many magicians will suspect a chop cup set. This routine is nice for the trade show performer in that it resets instantly.

Includes a bonus routine with the Rub-A-Dub-Dub patter.

Fred Kaps' Cups and Balls

Trevor Lewis & Fred Kaps

Fred Kaps' Cups and Balls by Trevor Lewis & Fred KapsAs taught by Fred Kaps to Trevor Lewis.
"This Cups and Balls routine has several Vernon touches; but there are alternative strategies which are truly outstanding and characteristic of the master, Fred Kaps." - Trevor Lewis
The warm, bright Mediterranean sunshine and Phillipe Fialho's delightful villa looking down on Nice in the French Riviera was the setting for Fred Kaps to teach Trevor Lewis his Cups and Balls routine and generously tell Trevor he could do what he liked with it. Trevor had a video of Fred performing the routine and had written it up in rough notes.

Tri-Color Cups and Balls

Rachel Colombini

Tri-Color Cups and Balls by Rachel ColombiniAn unbelievable routine using tissue paper rolled into balls.

The routine is basically Leo Leslie’s “Technicolor Cups and Balls” published many years ago by Supreme Magic Co. It is a very colorful routine, easy to do, easy to follow and with a logical finale. We added a finish that is both funny and baffling.

You show three cups and three pieces of tissue paper, say one red, one yellow and one green. You roll the paper into small balls and these balls penetrate through the cups, first one, then two and then all three. Finally the balls disappear and reappear under the cups! One...
