Here’s a unique handling for the “Professor’s Nightmare” rope routine that you’ll use in your act.
WHAT THE AUDIENCE SEES:
The magician cuts a length of rope into three pieces of different lengths; small, medium and long. The three pieces are stretched until they appear to be all the same length. The three pieces of rope are then tied together. The knots vanish and apparently the rope is fully restored. Until now the effect is a standard one. But wait…here comes the incredible finale! One knot is magically thrown back onto the rope then jumps away leaving the rope completely restored…so that it can be tossed to the audience! No fasteners. No magnets. No gimmicks whatsoever. Use any rope. It comes in ebook form (no rope).
