Ball and Cookie
This is a the combination of a great Harry Riser routine leading into the classic "Repeated Balls from the Mouth" production aka the human chicken (as this used to be done with eggs) What Harry Riser has done is to make the Multiplying Balls angle proof. That way it can be done close up. You can find the fine points of his handling the "The Feints and Temps of Harry Riser", published by Ed Brown. It's a fine routine and strong magic. So I needed a break in order to continue with the human chicken bit. The cookie proved to be perfect. Well, almost perfect. When eating the cookie it left something in you mouth and that something could stick to the ball, creating a horrible situation. So I changed it. Now I use a big marsh mellow. Quicker to eat, doesn't break in your pocket, no mess. Here is a live version.
