Magic Lessons #63 – Grandma’s Bra Trick
The Grandma’s Bra trick is so old that even your grandma probably thought it was old when she was a kid.
When it was new, it was probably considered pretty lewd, but now it’s more of a G-rated trick.
Warning: If you are offended by the word bra, then this magic trick is probably not for you.
About the Grandma’s Bra Trick:
The Grandma’s Bra trick simply requires a medium sized cloth napkin, so it is a great magic trick to perform at a restaurant or anywhere that have the correct sized napkins. Any cloth would work for this trick, it just needs to be square.
The original story was told from the point of view from a grumpy old man whose wife asked him to buy him a bra. You can add a colourful twist to this story or you can stay true to the original. It’s up to you.
You are likely to get some pretty big reactions from the Grandma’s Bra trick as the punchline is presented visually, mid sentence.
Some Things to Look Out For:
I have been told a handful of times that sometimes the shape of the bra is a little too obvious before the punchline. Rest assured that I have never failed to get a good laugh from this gag. No one see it coming and if they do, they don’t expect the verbal break that sells the punchline.
Grandma’s Bra is a simple and FUN magic trick. Even if someone could see where it is going, they wouldn’t jump in and ruin the trick for everyone else. They want it to be fun as well.
Some people may wonder whether this is family friendly or not. From experience, it is 100% family friendly. I ONLY do it if there are adults present during the magic trick. Families tend to like it because it is a tiny bit naughty and it everyone has a good giggle.
Just in case, I will spell this out: NEVER DO THIS IN A KIDS SHOW.

Hi Julian, I have been a full time magician for well over 40 years. I’m 82 on the 1st September and still performing. You never stop learning. I have been booked for a University Ball for the last two years. The grandma’s Bra would be a great laugh getter at that type of function.
As you say not one for the kids, but for that type of audience it would go down well. I did the knotted Silks to Bra at one of their shows they loved it.
I get your videos and find them full of interesting stuff. I run free magic workshops for kids with a disability from time to time and many of your ideas work in well.
Thank you for the time and effort you put in to your postings.
