    Confessions of a Needle Swallower

    Steve Spill

    Only $49.99

"Confessions of a Needle Swallower" is the definitive needle swallowing routine. It's all here. Steve's method is totally practical and very safe. His presentation has natural comedy that any performer can score the big laughs with every show.

Pros are always looking for routines that pack flat and play big. "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" is it. The gimmick and needles weight about 2 GRAMS. Add in the spool of thread and the flashlight and your total weight is maybe an ounce or two!

But such small props just how big of an audience can you perform the routine for effectively. The answer really comes down to lighting. With a spotlight the needles shimmer and reflect the light. In fact I believe they show up better than razor blades. Razor blades on edge are basically invisible. Teller KILLS with his version of the Needles at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas before over 800 people!

Of course you can perform "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" in almost any situation from close-up, to parlor and stage.

So What's The Effect?
The barebones are the performer places a single needle on his tongue and swallows it. A second needle is swallowed all under test conditions. The performers mouth is shown completely empty, under the tongue, under the top and bottom lips, the sides of the mouth. No doubt the needles have actually been swallowed. Twenty needles in all go down the gullet. Next a length of white cotton thread is swallowed. Now the impossible happens. You bring everything back up and all of the needles are now on the thread. It's stunning! It's shocking! You'll get gasps from every audience.

What Makes "Confessions Of A Needle Swallower" So Good? Two things raise "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" apart from all of the other versions First, Steve's method is brilliant and easy to do. Second, Steve's presentation is hilarious. All you need to do is follow his script and you're done, the big laughs are yours.

What's Included? The product includesthe training DVD and the special gimmick. "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" is sold without the needles, thread, threader and flashlight for two reasons. The first is to keep your costs down. You can buy the props for the same price we do. No sense for you to pay for marked up costs for shipping, handling and distribution. Second, you will need to replace the needles and thread periodically. Needles will eventually rust and the thread wears out. The needles and thread are readily available. "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" is a routine that once mastered can be built even if the airlines loose your act!

The training DVD was shot and produced at the HD studios of Bob Kohler Magic. The DVD contains 3 shows for you to see. The first is a TV show from 1988: the second is a comedy club performance in 1998 and last is a show we shot this fall at Magicopolis, Steve's incredible theater in Santa Monica, CA. Make sure you stop in to see Steve's show if you're in the area.

The explanations are in-depth and contain all of the work, tips and methods you'll need to perform "Confessions of a Needle Swallower".

To be totally honest before I shot the DVD even though I'd seen Steve perform the routine hundreds of times I never thought I'd do the routine. But after seeing all of the work I put it right in my show.

If you follow Steve's instructions the routine is very safe and easy. It's also easy to learn as Steve starts you off on the learning curve using toothpicks!

One Important Note! Swallowing needles is dangerous. "Confessions of a Needle Swallower" is a TRICK. You don't actually swallow needles or thread. But you do put real needles into your mouth. Without proper training, thoughtful practice and care putting anything in your mouth can be dangerous. We've given the best instruction possible but every user must click on and accept our legal disclaimer that is at the beginning of the DVD.
