Over 100 Dollars worth of dvds!
Gazzo is one of the world’s legendary street performers. In this ENORMOUS three hour DVD, Gazzo demonstrates and teaches his famous Street Cups routine. This is THE money-making routine Gazzo uses to close all of his street shows. You’ll learn everything from placement of the wand to where to stand. You’ll learn the moves, the misdirection, the subtleties, and all the presentation tips.
Gazzo teaches you how to do it, and then he teaches you why to do it that way. This is a tried and tested routine. It’s being brought to you by way of the streets after over 20 years of live performance experience. Every action in the routine has a purpose. Nothing is left to chance.
First, Gazzo takes you on a tour of his equipment — The Table Top, The Stand, The Poacher’s Pouch, The Gazzo Cups, The Balls, The Hat, etc. Gazzo says, “Professionals can’t afford cheap props.”
Next, he walks you through the entire routine — The Beginning Phase, The Middle Phase, and The Final Loads. He even walks you through the wand spin!
Finally, Gazzo invites you to sit in on a teach-in with fellow street pro Guy Collins. Guy is a juggler who is just starting to learning Gazzo’s routine. You’ll see Gazzo teaching Guy and walking him through the entire routine, correcting any mistakes and explaining why each move is done a certain way.
But, without question, the highlight of the DVD is the MASSIVE one hour performance section. This is one of the best live street performance sequences ever captured. You’ll see how Gazzo interacts with his spectators, how he builds the routine toward the finale, and how he encourages a massive hat.
The passionate student of the cups and balls will find this an invaluable resource.

“In Addition to this, Danny Hustle has a long conversation with me about the Does and Don’ts of the streets!
The question is, how does a guy who’s a little funny and does some pretty good magic, make a great living in this most challenging environment? the answers are all here!” – Kozmo
“Performance is always about the audience, but being able to gather and energize an audience is a First Principle that Koz understands in spades. He not only draws audiences into his sunny lair of hilarity, he holds them captive until they have totally surrendered. This is because he knows at gut-level the “about-ness” of magic, as well. I watched him work the hard-scrabble streets of the Big Easy. He is the best I’ve seen in the trenches, bar none!”
– Jon Racherbaumer
The Magic & Mentalism of Barrie Richardson – Volume 3
Quartet – Playing cards are fairly shuffled by a spectator and yet, when the cards are distributed to four participants, the performer reveals them with stunning speed and inerrancy. This is an extremely commercial effect that looks and feels like a genuine demonstration of extraordinary memory power.
Zebras and The Magic Square – A magic square routine that serves as a metaphor for how people too readily accept an easy answer while discounting other options. The audience interaction makes this demonstration a lively and memorable experience with none of the participants likely to ever forget what not seeing a zebra means.
The Human Movie Projector – The performer demonstrates an uncanny mental ability by memorizing 46 playing cards from a fairly mixed deck. The audience is helped to realize their own potential as they are able to correctly remember the order of the other six cards.
The Suspended Rice Jar Metaphor – While weaving a tale of the ancient Chinese priestesses, the performer suspends a large jar of rice with just a single thin chop stick. No magnets, wires, or gimmicks – just magic!
Sun and Moon Memories – A routine that utilizes concepts with far-reaching applications for mystery workers, the performer demonstrates how words, numbers, and pictures can be communicated, not by mind reading, but by using just the power of touch.
The Memorized Time Magazine – A current issue of Time is torn in half and the pages distributed to members of the audience. Any page number is called out and the performer immediately is able to reveal the contents on the selected page, including detailed descriptions of the articles, in addition to intricate details such as phone and credit card numbers. No electronics are used in this dramatic demonstration of the creative powers inherent in everyone’s mind. This one’s a true audience pleaser!
