The Magic Bandana Skit

Materials:
magician costume, bandanna, table

Characters:
magician, Herkimer

Directions:
The magician introduces his act and sends his assistant to a table behind him and (facing the audience) says, "Herkimer (his assistant), do exactly as I say . . ." (Magician can’t see him)

MAGICIAN: "Pick up the bandanna . . ." (Herkimer picks up a bandanna and also a banana that is lying on the table, looks at them, scratches his head, and puts the bandanna down, keeps the banana.)

MAGICIAN: "Now, Herkimer, hold the bandanna in your right hand . . ." (Herkimer does.)

MAGICIAN: "Fold the bandanna in half . . ." Herkimer folds the banana in half.

MAGICIAN: "Fold the four corners of the bandanna together . . ." (Herkimer peels the banana and drops the peel to the floor.)

MAGICIAN: "Now stuff the bandanna into your left fist, and don’t let any of it show . . ." (Herkimer then crams the banana into his left fist, causing the banana to ooze out between his fingers.)

MAGICIAN: "Now, Herkimer, on the count of three, the bandanna will disappear. One! Two! Three! Now show us your fist . . ." (Herkimer opens his fist and throws mashed banana at the magician, and the magician chases him off the stage.)
