There have been several versions and variations of cup and ball presentations. Here, we have selected five of the many that reside in The Screening Room.

An elegant minimalist solution by RENÉ LAVAND who presents a one cup version called “Three Breadcrumbs.” We have a fun and chaotic two-cup version by the one and only DAVID WILLIAMSON. There are two classic but yet again different versions using three cups and three balls: one by PAUL GERTNER, and the other by magic legend JOHNNY THOMPSON. To round out the set, we have also included a unusual version where ROSS BERTRAM combines his fine sleight-of-hand with television wizardry as he presents a very unusual version of the cups and balls.

So sit back, and enjoy the oldest trick in the book!
