Crazy Tray

The comedy performer is always on the lookout for a good comedy opener.

Well here is one, and you can work up as many routines as you care to suit your style.

All you require is a tray about 1.8" x 12", complete with a beading round the edges. Cut out the centre of the tray, say from about an inch in from the border all the way round.

Take this piece and cut it down the middle, then hinge each piece back into position, hingeing at the ends. Now make a long wire catch, fix this to the hinged piece to your right, the wire extending right underneath the tray and into a couple of staples which are attached to the other hinged piece. When the wire is pushed home the two "traps" wiil remain in an upright position. As soon as you pull the wire with your right fingers, the two hinged pieces will drop apart!
