Play a prank on a member of your audience!
Your volunteer will be squirming, but your audience will be roaring with laughter!
Here's how it goes: Break an egg into into the canister. Place a card on top as a cover, then turn canister upside down, and place it on your volunteer's head. Lucky the card is there- it seems to be keeping the broken egg from running down onto his head. Suddenly, you forget what comes next. When you look around for the instructions, you realize that they are written on the card that's under the can- the card that is keeping the egg from dripping down your volunteer's head! Carefully you remove the card, and then show it to the rest of the audience- the card says "Do Not Remove"- oh no! But surprisingly, the egg does not run down the person's head- the egg has vanished! And when the canister is lifted, there is a tall glass filled with candy, which may be handed out to the audience.
You can get a lot of mileage out of this routine! It's a terrific way to produce small prizes or candy, too! Anything you want can appear in the glass, as long as it fits. Sponge balls, silks, you name it!
Best of all- it's very, very easy to do! If you can put the canister on someone's head, you can do the trick!
