Jeff Hobson Egg Bag.

I am sure many of you have spotted this bargain. $149 for a modified Malini egg bag and a routine where you act like a donut stabber.
Here's the sales fluff:

The Hobson Egg Bag, the most entertaining Egg Bag routine in existence, is being made available in a strictly limited release.! Jeff Hobson, one of the world's premier comedy magicians, is finally releasing one of his pet routines, a routine which has entertained audiences all over the world! The Hobson Egg Bag is like no other routine. It will have your audience roaring with laughter, for sure!

The complete Hobson Egg Bag package includes:* Specially designed handmade Hobson Egg Bag* 2 specially-made eggs* Instructional DVD* Personally autographed Hobson photo card* Plus a bonus - Access to a private, password-protected web site for in-depth additional instruction, tips, advice, staging, the use of an assistant, and a live video of Jeff Hobson performing his famous Egg Bag! This professional additional instruction along is worth the price!

Admittedly Jeff has produced a nice variation on the Malini bag, the lining being a different color to the outside of the bag is a nice touch and the shorter cut to the bag looks good too, but unless your stage persona is that of a faggot gagging for some cock action I don't see that this is a good investment for anyone.

Jeff Hobson took the egg bag and made it his own, but surely that is what we as magicians are meant to do with ANY trick that we perform?

All this release will achieve is a bunch of copycat idiots who had $150 all dancing about with an egg bag telling their audience "it's the whooosh that does it" - another nail in the coffin of good magic performance I reckon.

Thank fuck this is a limited availability item.



  • Oh no, you're ragging on someone named "anonymous" (since your real name is "Mr. Whack") and you're doing it by making stuff up.

    I'm just crushed.

  • Yes my real name is Mr Whack, how very observant of you.

    Someone clearly agreed with you that this is shit.

    Although, this is the first time I've commented on your blog and it is ironic that an anon blog doesn't allow anon comments, doncha think?

    Keep up the good work.

    I love irony :)

  • Mr. Whack - I while agree that you have a right to your comments, being that it's on the internet makes for a bit of a different snag. You see, someone who was searching the net for me noticed this blog and brought it to my attention. I am very concerned that these comments can be seen by potential clients who may like to hire me. I don't always perform "campy". . . that's a nice way of describing my style rather than the comments you made. I also perform "straight" for a more conservative crowd. The point is, these potential buyers might be turned of away from booking me because of some of these comments. Would you reconsider taking off comments that include me? By the way, I'm not gay in case you didn't know. I have a wife, 3 children. . . and very straight. Sorry to disappoint you.

  • Wow, it's tragic that in a Google search for the Hobson Egg Bag (an amazing product, by the way,) THIS is the first thing that pops up.
    Homophobic prick. Clearly you've never met Jeff Hobson.
    Enjoy your failed career as a "magician," ass hole.

  • Having seen JH perform his egg bag routine, I can attest to the fact that he had an audience of over 2000 in Raleigh, NC laughing their heads off. Also, the fact that the egg reappeared in the bag on stage while being held by an amazed volunteer and JH was sitting in the audience was a stunner. I recently purchased the bag and it is extremely well made. Is it worth $150? Certainly it is to a working pro.

Just back to Oz after cruising on the Norwegian Epic. onboard we got to enjoy the incredible talent of Jeff fact went back night after night..and to think I wasn't going to go because I'm not really into magic shows.But...this was much much more..we laughed ourselves stupid. Soooo...wish we could see him again down under.
