Cups and Balls

The Cups & Balls is perhaps the effect most closely associated with magicians. Magicians doing cups and balls are depicted in paintings and illustrations of yesteryear. Done well it is one of the most amazing feats of sleight-of-hand. There are countless moves and routines from which to choose.

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.

1st edition 2009, 35 pages, photo illustrated.

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.

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...

Victor Farelli

John Ramsay's Routine with Cups and Balls by Victor FarelliJohn Ramsay was called "The Magician's Magician" because even for those in the know he could create miracles. He consistently fooled his peers with his incredible skill, misdirection and unique thinking. Here are a few quotes about him:
"... We are not given to uncritical boosts.... But it is difficult to write with moderation of the work of Johnnie Ramsay. His sleight of hand is unexcelled, perhaps even unequalled. Performers who know all there is to know about the Cups and Balls are not merely puzzled, but utterly baffled by Ramsay's presentation. His Cap and Pence is a masterpiece of artistry.......

Scott F. Guinn

Table-Hopping Cups and Balls by Scott F. GuinnThis is an exceptionally hard-hitting and very magical routine. Scott developed it with the Table-Hopping environment in mind, but it isn't limited to table-hopping venues--Scott also performs this with full sized cups in a variety of different performing conditions! If you work in the real world…this is definitely worthy of your consideration.

The Cups and Balls is probably the most-performed effect in magic's long history. However, it is rarely seen by the public these days, especially by table-hopping close up performers. Table-hopping magicians aren't willing (or able) to dedicate so...

P. K. Ilango

Indian Cups and Balls (Know-How Series) by P. K. IlangoThe Indian Cups and Balls trick is as old as Indian Magic itself. It is angle proof and traditionally performed seated on the ground cross-legged surrounded by spectators.

The cups vary according to class status. The wealthy Indian conjurer uses gleaming brass cups. The middle class conjurer uses cups made up of wood. The poor conjurer uses the cups made up of coconut shells. They make a hole on the top of a coconut half-shell and through it they will stuff rolled cotton clothes to serve as knobs to hold the cups.

Even today Indian conjurers from Kashmir to Cape Comerin are doing this Cups...

R. Shane

The Sting by R. ShaneThis routine made me dust of my cups after many years of dormancy. Read for yourself from the introduction how this routine came into being and you will understand that this is not your typical cups & balls. (This routine besides a few further comments already appeared in Pentalogy.):
It's funny how things go, sometimes. Back when I started in magic, the Cups and Balls was the one routine I spent hours and hours on, trying to get everything just so. We're not talking some Vernonesque, sleight mad piece of craziness; this was the basic routine I found in The Amateur Magician's Handbook. But there was something about it...
