What will he teach?
I have been using these routines professionally for many decades, usually performing the Ten Dollar Bill trick first with a child from the audience followed by the Bill in Cigar with a gentleman volunteer. Because of the interaction between myself and the spectators these two routines can run a total of 16 or 17 minutes. I have performed both tricks in private homes and once did the Bill in Cigar at the San Diego Sports Arena before thousands of spectators. These are classic plots that after years of thought and refinement have become two of my favorite, any-time, any-where, angle-proof routines. Also, Impromptu Powers of Darkness.
