"Wayne's take on the classic needle swallow is smart, streamlined
and powerful. It's like finding a needle in a Houchin haystack!"
- Lee Asher
Houchin is one of the most talented and effective magicians in the world.
His magic simply mesmerizes and A Single Needle is no exception."
- Aaron Fisher
the age of 12 Wayne has been obsessed with Houdini’s ‘East
Indian Needle Mystery’ - commonly known as ‘the needle swallow’.
His first effects involved toothpicks tied to thread and the swallowing
of uncooked spaghetti - but from inauspicious beginnings came the stage
version he performs in his stage show, involving 60 needles over a 12
closing his stage show with the full version for years, Houchin stripped
the trick down in order to discover what makes needle swallowing so effective.
He distilled the effect down even further, to what has become A Single
Needle and knew that the effect had become an impromptu street classic.
Wayne has made every effort to create the safest version of this effect
possible, there is some risk of injury involved. Multiple methods are
discussed that heighten the illusion of danger while substantially lessening
the actual danger to the performer.
