Andy Field is a professional magician and is available for weddings, parties and events. The Cups and Balls, amazingly performed here by professional Bristol magician Andy Field, is one of the most oldest and beautiful effects in magical history. Some magicians use it to compare their skills off against each other. Some routines are very simple and others are complicated and intricate. Apparently it uses every skill in the magicians armory to some degree and it is a challenge to all those who want to master it.
This is my award winning routine. After proceeding past the Ammar Opening Sequence I have designed my middle and ending sequences to be simple enough for the spectators to engage in and watch but at the same time use the best techniques I know for method, effect, design, construction, misdirection, pacing and timing of this famous classic and at the same time make it entertaining.
This performance took 25 years of study, thousands of hours of practice and all for this knowledge to come together at the same time for three and a half minutes. I hope you enjoy my performance. However, bear in mind that this is still a work in progress. If necessary I will spend another 25 years working on it. I am obsessed with this effect and the beauty that lies within it.
I hope my routine inspires, motivates and encourages some of you to get your own set of cups. If you can learn this trick correctly then you will see big improvments to other areas of your magic.
