entire act that fits in your pocket. Featuring the hilarious Magic
Quentin Reynolds is a professional
magician whose specialty is children's shows. The routine taught on this
DVD/Video is the highlight of his show -- a polished five-minute act
which is accomplished with nothing more than an ordinary
You are treated to a live performance
in front of a classroom of children where Quentin brings the kids to a
frenzy using this handkerchief routine and the many gags and touches
which make it a masterpiece. Following the performance you are taught
everything you need to know to perform the act.
The routine is a brisk and upbeat
sequence of effects that begins with a stretching handkerchief, a series
of knots and culminates with the animation of the Magic Mouse. It is
adaptable for most performing situations such as stage, parlor,
close-up, walk-around, kids, adults, yet it still fits in your pocket
and is very easy to do.
Effects and sequences taught:
Stretching Hank: A handkerchief is stretched to twice its original
Jumping Hank: A handkerchief repeatedly jumps out of your hands and
into the audience.
Fox's Knifty-Knot: No matter how hard you try to tie a knot in the
handkerchief it keeps disintegrating.
Fox's No Not: You finally make a knot but it magically unties when a
spectator blows on it.
Hank: The handkerchief is made to stand on end and fall on command.
Magic Mouse: The handkerchief is folded into a hat, an iron, an
earring, a moustache, and finally into a mouse. The mouse is wound up
and begins to wiggle its tail. The mouse seems to come to life as it
runs up and down your arm, around your neck, and then leaps into the
audience — making them scream with fright. The mouse's tail is pulled
and it turns back into a handkerchief. The handkerchief is folded and
put back in your pocket. The act is now completely reset for your next

making the routine even stronger and much more.
