On the Spot (VHS) Review

Great video for anyone wanting to do some impromtu magic. The coin trick 34 across is well worth the price of the video - impromtu magic at its best. The video is well laid out with the initial presentation in a real world setting, followed by a studio setting whereby Greg does all the explaining. A highly recommended video!

Manufacturer's Description:

On the Spot is a guerrilla course in performing impromptu magic. The material is so strong, you could show up at your next gig with no magic on you and still entertain the daylights out of them. With these simple but stunning routines, you'll be able to turn everyday objects into weapons of deception. These aren't just abbreviated quickies. They're complete routines that are so strong, they can be used at any professional performance. Shot live on the streets, On the Spot features over two hours of material (on two tapes) and in-studio explanations. Here is just a partial listing of what you'll get: Ticker Taker - A super-simple and perfectly motivated watch steal that doesn't take tons of testosterone to perform. Learn how to repeat steal a spectator's watch up to 4 times in a row. Quick Silver - A quarter disappears and reappears three times - in your eye socket (like a monocle), on the spectator's shoulder, and finally under their watch; Sponge Napkins - The impact of a sponge ball routine with ordinary cocktail napkins; 34 Across - A clean and slick impromptu Coins Across; Head Trip - A Paper Balls over the Head routine with anything and everything. Gregory grabs glasses, plates, and saltshakers. This routine alone is a postgraduate course in misdirection; Glossy Finish - A smear of borrowed lipstick penetrates a spectator's tightly clenched fist. Perhaps the most motivated and natural routine in the series. Toll Free - A close-up miser's dream that ends with a jumbo production. Multiple methods ensure that spectator's never see the same move twice; 99-Cent Trick - Multiple coin vanishes topped off with a dizzying transposition; Florida Keys - Ordinary keys and their key ring become a mini Linking Ring routine; Ring Flight - You toss a borrowed wedding band into the air and then stab it with your finger. Questionable Trick - A very convincing copper/silver transposition with the spare change in your pocket - a penny and a dime. Now you can perform Scotch and Soda anywhere, at any time; Playful Pickpocketing - Rob your spectators blind - they'll love you for it; ReCap Revisited - Gregory's classic as you've never seen it. Greg's added new subtleties, moves and a brilliant new ending where the pen is pulled from the pen cap.
