In this lecture, Ron shows his full preparation for performing his acclaimed Billiard Ball & Coin Manipulation act. He explains how, why and where the various loads are put, meticulously adding each Billiard Ball and Stack of Coins to his outfit.
When all is ready, Ron proceeds to walk through the performance. Explaining as he does so, the methods for producing and manipulating the Coins & Balls.
