This is more a combination of coin plots than a traditional "Copper/ Silver/ Brass" routine, but it is a fine routine with many nice (and sneaky) touches. -David Regal, Genii Magazine
"Mike Scanzello has created a terrific routine for the strolling performer that packs a lot of action into a short span of time with a few ordinary looking props. . . This routine is intelligent, diabolical and, well, Insidious!" - Marc Desouza
"Great take on copper silver brass using everyday objects!!" - Dan Hauss
Insidious is a Copper Silver Brass routine that FINALLY has the killer ending it deserves!
It's Diabolical, double-barreled method will ensnare spectators! Besides the eye-popping, tactile transpos there is a devious method lurking no one sees until it's WAY too late!
You start with a dark/dirty coin, a brass key, and a silver coin with the spectator's initials on it.
In the action-packed 3 phase routine:
Phase 1: Dynamic 2 for 1 transpo. The dark coin is in the right hand. Key and initialed coin in the left fist. Visibly the dark coin morphs into the key and initialed coin, leaving the dark coin in the left fist. A fast and bewildering change!
Phase 2: In the hands copper/silver transpo. Under the spectator's clenched fist you switch the initialed coin for the dark coin! Powerful and super easy to do!
Phase 3: Coin to Matchbox Finale. Uses a different method from phase 1 and 2. It is so many steps ahead they never see it coming! The initialed coin vanishes in mid-air ending up in the matchbox the spectator holds from the start! The matchbox is seen empty in the spectator's hand at the start. At the end, She removes the initialed coin herself
Everything can be examined.
