A beautiful wooden cup and a red ball are used for this magic moment. The cup is placed mouth down on the table and the ball caused to vanish. Lifting the cup reveals the location of the ball. The cup is again shown positively empty and set mouth down. The ball is now placed on top of the inverted cup. The performer slaps his hand against the top of the cup causing the ball to vanish… or so it seems until the cup is lifted revealing the little red ball. Finally the ball is placed in the performer’s pocket, but it capriciously returns to the cup. The ball is once more removed and placed in the pocket. Is it under the cup? The spectator lifts the cup only to find a real lemon or a tennis ball!
