Woofle Duster (Woofle Dust) by Thomas Wayne(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The idea of using magic powder to distract attention from a sleight or move has been around for centuries. It was first described c. 1584 by Prevost used to ditch the thread in the Gypsy Thread effect. The term Woofle Dust first appears in Lesson 2 of the original Tarbell Course c. 1927 and it has been used ever since.
Thomas Wayne’s version is made from a quality salt shaker and contains precision machine components that are built to last a lifetime. It comes with an empty salt shaker which Thomas uses to maximize the laughter out of this otherwise under utilized prop.
Effect: Briefly, Thomas’s routine gets at least three laughs, each bigger than the previous one, from his use of the Woofle Duster:
- Firstly, he says he needs some magic dust to make the magic happen before he shows the salt shaker, then when he brings out the salt shaker, the audience groans because they realize the “magic dust” is just salt.
- Now, the Woofle Duster is used in the normal way and this gets a larger laugh because they were expecting salt. This can be used a number of times.
- Finally, Thomas switches out the Woofle Duster for the normal Salt Shaker (filled with salt) and when the unsuspecting spectator tries to use it they end up shaking salt all over the close-up area instead of the Woofle.
