Tips on the Foo Can and Funnel by Imp Smith

A collection of proven, tested routines using the Foo Can and Comedy Funnel that will liven up any show.

In the eyes of a spectator, tricks with liquids are always cause for wonder. Since many performers don't feature liquid effects in their act, this presents a golden opportunity for the wide-awake magician.

From the Foreword by T. A. Whitney:
