What is the Alotta Mug? It applies the principle behind the classic lota bowl to an ordinary-looking plastic travel mug. Unlike traditional lota effects, the Alotta Mug is:
• an everyday object, rather than a stage prop.
• lightweight and easy to pack.
• usable close-up, for stage or parlor work
• very affordable
And yet, this little wonder packs the same comedic punch as a traditional Lota effect: Empty water from the mug, slowly and deliberately, making it clear that not a drop remains. You can even have spectators peer into the mug to verify that not a drop remains. A moment later, magically, you pour water from it again! Repeat this several more times.
Open your show with it. Use it as a running gag through your show. Finally, close your show with it! Self Working! Easy and fun to do.
Consider the words of Nathan Kranzo, who recently obtained several for use on a magic television series:
“I think Gary Brown's Alotta mug is one of the most magical ordinary props I have ever seen. It is so unassuming and so natural looking. The prop mug works great. I love it. I can't recommend it highly enough” - Nathan Kranzo
Perfect for kid shows, restaurant work, bar magic, birthday entertainment, corporate events, etc. One quick note for magicians: the mug is capacious, holding, as David Oliver noted in his review, approximately 35 ounces of liquid. Because of its unique design, the amount of liquid diminishes with each pour. There are several techniques you can use enhance the effect – including the height and timing of the pours, and/or the use of a graduated receptacle. Either way, it’s an amazing thing to see. The mug is also supplied with a lid, which can be employed to your advantage in a close-up situation.
We have a limited supply of this item. Once it’s gone it’s gone for good! Should you get one? Well, in his review of the Alotta mug for Genii magazine, master magician David Oliver praised its “re-engineered” features, pointing out it was “easy to load” and that the trigger was “in a logical spot” and “ergonomically effective.” He concluded by noting:
"Can be done on stage or close-up. Great for kids or adults. Extremely well-made and easy to do. You can’t go wrong for the price…. Recommended.” -David Oliver
David’s right – you should get one before they’re gone. Exclusively from Ronjo.com.
