Turn your volunteer into a human puppet!
The ultimate piece of comedy to do with your volunteer!
The performer asks a spectator to join them on stage. He slips a “mouth mask” on the spectators face. This covers only the spectators mouth and nose leaving his eyes and the rest of his face visible. The performer then operates the false mouth and speaks on behalf of the spectator. Typically the performer then uses the mask much like a ventriloquist would but on a spectator.
If your not a ventriloquist, dont worry the mask looks so funny when put on the spectator you could do almost anything you like. And just turn your head as you talk on behalf of the spectator.
Maybe have the spectator perform a magic trick. Maybe a mind reading effect where they reveal something to another spectator. Maybe have them sing a song or talk about something embarrassing.
If your stuck for ideas you will find stacks of performances on you tube. Below is one of our favorites:
Over the last few years Magicbox have been working on their very own human vent mask.
Having seen first hand many different versions we developed this product with none of the weaknesses and wanted it to last with no cheap parts or elastic that would potentially break over time We teamed up with a top puppet maker and the final product is unlike any other product of this type!
The mask is unique in design to Magicbox and the mechanism is so much more durable than most other masks on the market. The mouth piece mechanism uses a double spring to pull the mouth closed rather than elastic in cheaper versions that tends to first stretch so it stops closing correctly and then eventually snaps, probably in the middle of a performance! The jaw pivots on two bolts either side of the mask rather than plastic hinges. The operating mechanism is attached via a one metre long metal cable and operates much like a bike brake. Simply pull the lever to open the mouth and release to close.
The mask has FOUR detachable velcro straps that can be adjusted to keep the mask in place. Unlike some masks which can ride up during use, our version will keep down snug and flat against the face while still remaining comfortable.
The whole inside of the mask is padded with felt for comfort and the there is a wipe clean section where the spectators mouth is inside the mask. Medical tape can also be used inside on the contact areas if preferred.
