Ring 2100 query: "Can someone tell me the skill level you need to perform Mojo Boogie Boxes?"
Reply From Lary Crews, former line magician with Jay Leno's Tonight Show: "You need to be able to move your hands from side to side and speak intelligently and breathe through your nose. Seriously, the moves in this routine are extremely easy but the effect is terrific. I love it ... recommend it ... (and use it) ... in my restaurant and private party work. ...(The) instructions are the best I have ever seen for a magical effect. Good, straightforward and funny as the dickens."
