Pickpocket Demonstration Video
Gene excels in pickpocket entertainment. Using a volunteer from the audience, Gene removes personal items –- watch, wallet, tie and more. Usually the volunteer is completely unaware that their personal property is disappearing under their nose; however, the audience is not. This results in some hilarious moments as the flabbergasted “victim” realizes that even forewarned they couldn’t catch “America’s Friendliest Pickpocket” in action!
