Paul 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 the audience...every single time. Best of all, this routine is easy to do and requires no "knuckle-busting" sleights. Only easy to do sleights. This allows you to concentrate on Paul's very funny patter lines. Each stage becomes more and more amazing.
BONUS: "BRAINWAVED OIL & WATER"
Paul has asked permission from his good friend, Jim Canaday, to present Jim's amazing and fun-to-do card routine that uses NO gaffed cards..."Brainwaved Oil & Water". This wonderful, multi-phased routine is not only easy to do, but "flows", naturally from one stage to the next ending with 8 cards that can be inspected by the spectators.

Yet another winner by Mr. Lelekis. Dust off your cups and balls and get ready to perform this classic effect with a difference. The premise and patter for this routine is just second to none, plus the B'Wave Oil & Water bonus is also brilliant. As with everything that Paul produces, you can put them straight into your repertoire to get great reactions, laughter, and to give a truly magical performance. Thanks for sharing this with us Paul.
