Money in Balloons
By Ray Carlyle
Here is an effect that plays big, but packs small as they say. What the audience sees. A rope stretched between two points (could be two spectators or any two points) from the rope are five (5) balloons of different colors. Each is inflated and are about 12 inches in size. These balloons are held by five bulldog clips. None of the above are gimmicked (The same style as the clips I use to make the Ostin Clip).
Now a spectator is selected by any fair means as there is no plants or stooges used. He or she is asked to find which balloon holds a one hundred dollar bill folded up inside. Then you play a kind of "Bank Night" or a "Deal or No Deal" routine to find the bill. The routine allows for you or the 'helper' to win and at the end, an envelope that was hanging high over the stage is removed only to find a prediction that details all the actions that happened in finding the bill.
No props are provided. Only a complete routine giving you an ending with and without the production ending. The prop below is only a suggestion. It may be done with an ending that does not require the Abbott prop.
The only props needed are a means of producing the prediction. In my catalog, you will find a New Pocket Writer and the New Ostin Style Clip. Those two used together will do the job for you very nicely.
