Tel's Bells Review

Official Review

I purchased Tel's Bells in the hope of including it in a show I was doing several years ago. That hope vanished when I received the prop and began rehearsing with it. Because of the placement of the gimmick and the force required to operate it, there was no way to grasp the bell in a natural manner and make it work. In addition, I discovered that if the bell was shaken vigorously enough, which an enthusiastic volunteer might conceivably do, the supposed-to-be-silent bell rang! That was the death knell for any desire to use this prop in front of an audience. I ended up returning Tel's Bells to the place of purchase.

Caveat emptor, folks.

Manufacturer's Description:

This marvelous mechanical brass bell can be slotted into lots of programs and there are a few ideas for any kind of comedy show !The basic idea is neat , you take a bell and ring it , then when you give it to someone else , they will try to ring it but with NO SOUND !!! A classical comedy bit from the British magic comedian Terry Herbert. This is so funny , your audience will cry !!! for both Children's and adult entertainers.

Here are some idea that comes with the bell:

For children┬┤s: before a birthday party , you ask the child to get all his /her friends to settle down , and to act like their teacher at school when they ring the bell to get attention. You ring the bell to show him how to do it , then give him the bell to ring to get everyone┬┤s attention. Of course when he rings the is no sound ..... a little louder you ask and take it from him and demonstrate...
For adults : You show the bell to an adult man telling him that this bell has been developed to check how many hormones he has... as much the bell rings as many sexy hormones you have ... You of course ring the bell out loud... you give it to the spectator - he try and... Nothing - no sound!
Three bell Monte effect... Very expensive , but what an effect!!!
And many other great ideas included!!!!
