WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT RUNAROUND SUE When I die, I want to be reincarnated as Tim Ellis and for only one reason: so I could get away with what is easily one of the very best versions of the Cups and Balls routine ever crafted. Big claim, but I can back it up. No, correctly, Tim Ellis can back my claim up for me. He has taken what, at its essence, is a two-cup/one-ball Cups and Balls routine with a final load and turned it into a wonderful, entertaining, and theatrical event. This is truly one routine every performer, everyone who makes their bones day in and day out in front of paying audiences, needs to be versed in. It's a Cups and Balls routine (two cups and one ball, for those keeping score) with a final load. And the Mona Lisa is a bunch of oil slapped on canvas. Anyone who doesn't give Ellis a tremendous amount of credit for his originality here obviously bounced their reality check. - Shane, Online Visions Another cups & balls routine you say? Here’s what Ellis has... More > accomplished with “Runaround Sue.” * He adapted the classic cups & balls to play big on stage, beyond the realm of typical close-up audiences. The balls in Ellis’ routine are almost as large as many “final loads” found in most performers’ cups & balls. * He has created a viable and entertaining theme for performing cups & balls that works with the well known fifties song, “Runaround Sue.” Like Ellis’ “6 Card Rap,” the routine is innovative, brilliant and entertaining. Ellis performs his cups & balls dressed in a leather jacket and sunglasses, uses large milkshake cups and showcases a jukebox-all choreographed to the song. * His final load is different from anything that I’ve seen in a cups & balls routine. And he burned me twice with his final load. The second time I watched, I was determined to catch him. But I got caught up in the flow of his routine and he burned me again. - Wayne Kawamoto, About.com< Less
