Comedy Legs Table by Woodmagic Studio

(c. 2001) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Legs Table was invented by British comedy magician Arthur Dowler c. 1949 with ideas from Harry Stanley and Yimka who actual built it. Jack Hughes refined the original model to a smooth working piece of apparatus. This comedy prop was a great favorite of the late, great Tommy Cooper and Jack Hughes manufactured the model used by him. Howard Hale’s version was perhaps the prettiest and most solid Legs Table ever built and to this day I’m not sure there has been a better one.

Effect: The performer walks on carrying a four legged table. As he walks towards the centre of the stage one of the front legs suddenly falls off onto the floor with a loud clatter. The performer appears confused by this turn of events and has difficulty in trying to put the table down to pick the leg up. Suddenly the other front leg falls onto the floor. The performer looks at the audience with utter despair, then smiles as magically a pair of shapely female legs suddenly spring out at the front of the table. The table can now be placed down onto the stage and used as a normal table.

    The Most Beautiful Comedy Table Ever!

    When Howard Hale first put this table out in 2001 I received #1 from Stevens Magic after a very long wait. Sadly I sold it back in 2007 never thinking I’d get another one. Well now I have #2 and it is even better than #1. It is a stunning looking table and when you want that huge belly laugh at the end of your multiplying bottles routine, this is the way to go!

    Howard Hale made some truly beautiful magic, and this item had to be the pinnacle of his line. It is very sad that he stopped making magic. But I for one am very pleased to have this piece back in my collection.

    I don’t know how many were made, at least two but probably not many more as I remember I had to wait months for #1.

    If you ever see one of these babies for sale buy it!
