Again, the time misdirection makes these steals very powerful, but I have to be aware of the risk that the spectators may notice the absence of their possessions before I wish them too.

Angry reaction to lawmaker's tweet on Ginsburg. Answer Save. He went to Hogwarts. I'm not going to embarrass you at all, or do anything unsavoury, but 1 am going to just untuck the very bottom of your shirt. Is that okay with you? My right thumb lifts the co]lar and the thumb and forefinger grab the tie at the side of the neck. Very quickly, I pull out the tie, feeding the thin length back over his shoulder in two bursts.
The thin end of the tie should feed up through the knot, but it should not, ideally, pull right through. With this done, I let the collar fall back if I need to, leaving the slack over the back of his neck. The tie still looks fine from the front, When I ask if it is okay to untuck the shirt, I only look at him briefly, then my eyes return to the bottom of his shirt. His answer gives a helpful moment of pause for me to pull at the collar, but I do not want him looking up at me, where my hand movement will be in the periphery of his vision.
I leave the tie in this position, and untuck the shirt. If he hasn't already, I tell him to suck in his stomach. Presuming that the shirt is big enough to provide cover this works well with a jumper , my left fourth and fifth fingers undo the belt buckle.
It is only worth attempting to take the belt if it is reasonably thin and its owner not too corpulent. We must remember that some people, known as 'shut-ins' become so tragically overweight that they are unable to leave their own homes. The end of the belt will have a tendency to poke out unless it is pulled right through the buckle at this point.
The left free fingers poke the end of the strap back into the belt loop of the trousers for the time being, keeping the buckle pin pointing safely the wrong way. The sucking-in of the stomach is always perlormed by a male spectator, and facilitates automatically the unfastening of the belt. In this contracted position, they do not feel it. Tie and belt are ready to be stolen, but now we turn our attention to the pocket items. I open the side of his jacket nearest me, which is his left.
I ask him to hold it out, and to do the same with the other side. My right hand goes into his outer left pocket and steals anything there while he holds it in position. If his arm is in the way, I simply tell him to hold the jacket higher up. I place the stolen items in my right pocket, and secure the thumbtip.
This is all hidden from the spectators by the flap of the jacket. I then proceed with the effect. So far, I have done nothing more than stand a spectator in position, untuck his shirt-front, and ask him to hold his jacket open. Even if I were not pick-pocketing, I would have appeared to have done the same.
Each move necessary for the extensive steals is well-hidden amongst the actions necessary for the cigarette effect. The steals simply exploit them. The remaining moves will happen in the moments of relaxation , amazement and mirth following the climax of the cigarette vanish. It is therefore vita! After the cigarette has vanished, the left hand remains under the shirt, and the right retains the tip.
Trying to complete the steals with it on would create the same feeling of tactile detachment associated with rubber sheaths of any kind. The group will be on tenterhooks, wondering where the cigarette has gone. I lower the shirt-flap over the buckle of the belt, which I have managed to flatten. The belt must be taken last, because it is the only steal that may be felt at the last minute. I move around to his other side, as he drops his jacket and looks for the cigarette.
I innocently say, "I didn't get any ash on you, did I? I am now ready to show the stolen pocket items. The return of goods must be maximised to the greatest effect. The more you can show, the better. I give him back something from the first pocket-steal, and apologise for somehow having it in my possession. Then any other items are returned. As I give them back, I name various other pockets from where I pretend to have stolen them.
Thus they believe that I had stolen from trouser pockets, and inside pockets too. I have them replace them items in the pockets I say, but I supposedly return one to the inner right pocket myself. Rather than actually place the item there, I use an idea of James Freedman's and merely mime the placement, pulling the jacket only a little way from the body and pulling down on the pocket with my forefinger.
To the spectator, it feels as if the item has been replaced. However, 1 then release the item altogether and catch it at the base of the jacket with my left hand which awaits it. Therefore I can return it again, after a few more items have been replaced. A subtle but effective point. After the pocket items, I will take cufflinks if they are worn. I go to the spectator's right arm, and lift it at the wrist, pulling the sleeve back just a little and saying, 'Didn't you have a very expensive watch on?
It seems as ff1 have just lifted the wrong arm, or that he himseLf is not sure on which wrist he wore it. My right hand steadies the cuff while my left fingers open the T-bar and pull it swiftly through. His attention is now on the other arm where the watch should be. I feign amazement and reach across to take the wrist that is missing the watch.
I push the remaining cufflink through and pocket them as I reach into my pocket and remove the watch. Throughout this nonsense, the group will be laughing and enjoying the predicament of their friend and my skills. It is important that I take an almost apologetic tone with this type of routine and keep him from feeling too humiliated by the happenings. The return of the watch, however, should get me a round of applause.
I build it up a little, and withdraw it slowly from the pocket. I move around to his left side as I display it to the group and to him, and as I give it back I give him a consoling squeeze on the shoulder and relax. This provides a good 'off-beat' to place my hand on his chest across the chest for a second and pull the very end of the material through the knot. The tie knot should remain in place, but the loose end simply hangs down his back. Now to finish. The returning of the items is apparently over, I thank the group and the spectator, and invite him to sit back down.
My right arm comes across his chest to his right shoulder, pushing him back gently, as I ask where he was sat. At the same time, my left hand grabs the belt end, and pulls it out of the loop where it has been resting, then grabs the buckle. I turn around with the belt buckle in my hand, snaking the belt out of his trousers and around my body in a figure-eight movement.
This is seen by the group and is definitely played for laughs. I am now on his right side, holding up the belt. I push it into my left pocket, blocked from the view of the spectators by my body, as I thank him for being a marvellous sport and invite him to sit. I take my applause, although this is something of a false ending, and at the right moment I go for the overkill and produce the tie.
If the knot is still in place, I sometimes hold the thin end behind the knot and grip the whole thing there as if were still tied. I pretend to unfasten it as I hand it back. That sparks off some very bewildered conversations later. The previous routine, as I was kind enough to point out, is designed as an entertaining piece of hilarity.
Clearly, most of the time, the spectator won't have a tie, cufflinks, jacket and belt I describe the full, potential routine with maximum number of steals. It does not, however, resonate that unnerving power that we would wish for it to stand as a proud example of Real Magic realised. This is where I would like to expand the point that a steal does not have to be played for laughs.
Presuming that we have already wandered from the traditional path and not allowed the audience to see that an item has been stolen, we have the possibility of revealing the steal in a more serious and unsettling way than with the line "Is this your wallet, Sir?
If you have stolen a valuable and personal item from a person, you have performed a very disturbing act. Because you are known to be a magician , you will not land yourself in trouble or genuinely upset anybody when you reveal what you have done.
Therefore we are in a situation where rather than merely playing for amusement, we can orchestrate disturbing and unsettling magic without causing any upset. It has been a theme of this book that magic is purely what you communicate it to be. You can presume that it is serious and powerful and act accordingly, which is the priority that concerns us here. The same must now apply to the return of a stolen item.
Producing a person's wallet will generate in them a moment of confusion. As with any moment of magic, the bewildered spectator experiences a rush of conflicts, which need some resolution, The context that you provide for them will give them the answers they need. If you sell your magic as entirely safe and not at all worrying, then they wifi not find that moment disturbing in the least. If, however, your character as a performer encourages them to perceive a gentle note of threat in what you do, then they as they search for answers in those moments of confusion, they will look in darker and more emotive areas and find any resolution less comfortable.
This is surely preferable. So you can resist the urge to make a joke out of producing a watch or wallet from your pocket aix!
