Jeff has also been known to perform an amazing coin disappearance act. This trick relies heavily on great sleight of hand abilities which Mc Bride possesses. He will ask a volunteer to come up on stage. He will then take hold of a metallic vessel and a magic wand. Coins will then start appearing out of nowhere. From his hands, the volunteer’s head and even their nose, ears and mouth. The coins are then collected in the vessel for inspection. The fact that Mc Bride has a long-sleeved coat while performing the act, may be the reason why he is able to pull off this act with such efficiency and precision. But his sleight of hand abilities should also not be taken for granted, and his overall performance in the act is just exemplary.
During his earlier years, Mc Bride would start his show off with a miming act which was just incredible. He was so good at the miming especially the box act which made it seem like he was actually trapped in an invisible box. He incorporated into his act, very good music that maintained the tempo and rhythm of the whole show. Another great theme of the act was the silent nature of the show. The fact that the whole show was a silent one served to increase the audience’s curiosity towards the mime. The silence also served another great purpose. It helped to ensure that the audience was glued completely to the show and nothing else. All their attention was forcefully directed towards the magician. It also brought uniqueness and mystery around the act.
