The most dangerous magic effect I do

Those who know me know I have always been fascinated by magic that surprises and entertains audiences.


One of my favorite effects to perform is what I call...the "nail". In this effect a large nail is hidden under one of several paper cups and mixed on the floor (when I am not looking). I then take off my shoe and bare foot stamp on the cups! Of course I am attempting to avoid the one with the nail underneath. It's a thrilling moment for both me and the audience.


I use a combination of psychological principles in my acts and this is my way of putting my "foot" on the line. I must read the audience to determine where the nail lies.


This effect always gets a great reaction from the audience. However, it can also be very dangerous if I am not careful. There have been two occasions where I have stomped on the cup with the nail underneath (ouch!!!) and it was certainly bloody painful!
