SKU: bjs3400 Category:



“Bunko” is a complete close-up routine for magicians, with eight specially designed bills, photo instructions and two complete presentations. Also comes with complete written instructions by Richard Kaufman.

Jim Steinmeyer’s remarkable shortchange effect is a no-sleight, fully routined mystery: $20 becomes $19, then $14, then $20…$19 again, and finally $24! For the climax, the sucker ends up getting $13 instead of $20!

Two separate patter stories are included. In one, Al Capone himself gets taken by the infamous Florrie Ireland, a sweet little old lady, candy shop clerk, and shortchange artist.

Dimensions Approximately 6.5″ x 3.75″ (16.5cm x 9.5cm)

“The effect is tremendous! “Bunko is a perfect example of close up magic “theater.” An intriguing story draws the spectators in and then wallops them with magic. It’s a short-changed routine with no sleight-of-hand at all!” Richard Kaufman
