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.

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Brick Tilley

Chinese Cups and Balls by Brick TilleyBrick Tilley learned this routine in China from Mr. Fu in 1980. It is a 'cups and balls' routine but is performed with two rice bowls and three balls which appear to be small pieces of fruits. They are not really pieces of fruits but that is what they look like. Details of what they are and how to make them is in the ebook.

The video below is part one of a four part routine.
