Mint-O (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) by Liam Jumpertz
A COMPLETE sellout sensation at Magic Live and Blackpool! With the same qualities as Needle-Swallowing but much quicker and more palatable to family audiences
"What a fun routine this is to perform. You are supplied with a special gimmick and a spare for practice and the online tutorial. It is so easy to do you’ll be running out to buy a packet of mints just so you can start work on it. I love this because it’s one of those effects you can easily carry in your pocket and perform anywhere, anytime - and it makes it more magical if it is ‘impromptu.' " -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
A COMPLETE sellout sensation at Magic Live and Blackpool!
Imagine the scene: when traveling to Australia, we saw a young man performing a FANTASTIC street show. And amidst the classics, he did something we had NEVER seen, and the crowd went crazy - a range of emotions, from screaming to covering their eyes to laughing to silently dazzled.
Consider these important points:
Mint-Ois performed with a borrowed mint
There are no angle restrictions
You can use headphones, a necklace, or any thin cord
You'll even learn a version where you can hand the mint out at the end!
The magician borrows or has examined a set of headphones, and pops an examined mint (Lifesavers, Polo) in his mouth. Then, biting down for an instant on the length of headphones, the mint is now PENETRATED onto the cord. It's as if someone crossed an impossible puzzle with a magic trick... and it's fantastic!
Mint-O has the same qualities as Needle-Swallowing but is much quicker and more palatable to family audiences. It uses the mouth in a hilarious and unexpected way. The effect is easy to learn, easy to perform, and has NO restrictions in terms of angles, repeating, making anything, or props wearing out. You supply your own package of mints and can then perform the trick ANYWHERE: on stage, in the street, or walking around.
