Jay Sankey's TRAVELLING EXPENSES as learned from SWITCH

What The Audience Sees:

'Jamie showed us a bill with a hole in each corner and he told us he was going to make all the holes travel to only one corner, at which point, he folded up the bill. Groaner! But when he unfolded the bill, the holes had actually traveled to one corner. Miracle!'

How It Went:

Well, Friday concluded the end of my TT Triple Play as it was my third TT trick in a row. I thought I'd end it with a good one. And make no mistake, this is a good one. If you haven't picked up Switch-Unfolding the $100 Bill Change by John Lovick then you're really missing out. This book is one of my all time favourites and this routine is but one of many fantastic effects! Sankey's, however, is one of my favorites within the book. It's clean, direct, and people loved it.

Best Lines:

"Move them back! Move them back!"- which I did. She was even more floored after the second time.

"Let me see that!"-Jay actually mentions this in the book about how this comment is a testament to the effect. He was right.

Angry Bob Rating:

I didn't see Angry Bob on Friday unfortunately. Or maybe that's fortunately, lol.

My Rating:

I hate always giving great reviews but there's nothing I can do with this one, I'm afraid. 9/10. I would have given it a 10 but it's not always convenient to have a bill with holes in it on you.

The JDG Tip:

Really take the time to learn your Switch properly and it will serve you well over the years. I think I've done a few Magic Fridays using this move and it really has always gone over well.

Closing Thoughts:

Life has been pretty crazy, in a good way, for me lately so I want to say, 'Thanx!' to everyone for their continued support. My successes are not my mine alone.

I've seen that one on sankey's "45" dvd. If you dont want a bill with holes punched in it how about a bill switch for a different denomination?
