The Working Professional's Chop Cup by Jim Sisti

Customer rank: +4 -1

From the introduction:
This routine was honed through many years of adding segments and cutting others. I approached the idea of developing a Chop Cup routine with two priorities: first, I had no interest in doing a Chop Cup routine that made the spectator the foil, i.e.: they always guess incorrectly where the ball is. Thus, I've included much of my patter so that you can see how I've taken the "sting" out of the routine. Secondly, I refused to underestimate the intelligence of my audience and directly address their suspicions that there is more than one ball in play. In fact, in the spirit of Juan Tamariz, I exploit these suspicions halfway through the routine with a color change which actually aids in getting the audience to basically give up in their efforts to jump ahead in the trick. Thus, the final loads blow right past them.
