That was fucking brilliant.
(I wish I could something better to say about the convergence of magic and comedy, but that's all I've got)

I seem to recall having seen this exact same routine about 20 years ago (magic to audio tape, confusion with a banana/bandana); does anyone else remember this? Has the routine been passed on, or is he the originator?

Okay, googling seems to show that the banana/bandana skit is a popular routine for Boy Scout performances (really!).

For what it's worth, I loved this guy's rendition.

I've seen this routine a few times myself. I'm pretty sure it's actually just available as-is from catalogs and the like.

Thanks. Now I have a cramp in my side, from laughing too early in the morning. :-))

I hate to ruin all the fun, but that is not a bandana.

Ok, that was just one joke, but it was an incredibly funny joke and I LOL'ed my ass off. So thanks for that.
