Watch Me Like A Hawk by Brother John Hamman

The Secrets of Brother John Hamman by Richard Kaufman and Alan Greenberg

Page 44 et seq.

Personal Comment: Interesting I guess, but not my cup of tea. This seems like a routine that is so much tied to the personality of Brother John Hamman, that I cannot see anybody doing it, and it appearing natural.

Difficulty 3/5


  1. I'm not sure if this is the same as the steal-back move that he's got elsewhere. If you get a chance to pick up the Lost Works of BJH, a video series done with Richard Kaufman that was meant as a reference point to help with illustrations for the book, he does that steal-back move there, and it doesn't look that bad.

  2. You need a full head of hair for this trick.


    ps I think it might be better than you think....

  3. Andrew beat me to the punch. Honestly I think I've performed about 80 percent of that book here and there. Hamman proves in taping this is a legit routine.
