Chico the Chimp by Jam Magic, Samuel Patrick Smith(c. 1995) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: Two helpers are chosen from the audience and are positioned on opposite sides of the stage. A large heavy card (5 3/4″ x 8 3/4″) displaying a mischievous monkey is introduced and placed inside an empty envelope. This is given to one assistant to hold. An empty envelope is then given to the helper on the other side of the stage. Chico the Chimp is to perform a daring escape from one envelope to the other. After some comical by-play it seems that Chico has failed because the card seems to still be in the original envelope.
The card is removed from the original envelope only to find that Chico is gone and a “frame”, the shape of Chico, is left on the card. Chico has escaped; however, the other envelope is still empty. More comedy follows using the helpers and finally Chico is found hanging on the second helper’s back. This is a wonderful routine for getting children involved in your act. It is good clean fun. A perfect addition to any clown magic act. Also for use by magicians that specialize in performing for children.
