One Fish, Two Fish
Color Sponge Ball Routine

by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki

This isn’t a card trick, so it didn’t make it into my “Go Fish Card Tricks” book, but because I usually like to warm up my audience with a sponge ball routine, just to “make sure everyone is paying attention and can see without having to stand up”, I began playing around with a sponge fish routine to combine with my fishy themed card tricks. I'm told that it is very unusual to do a sponge ball routine with different color spongeballs, but here it is anyway. I even show you how to make your own sponge fish balls.

The entire routine is performed to rhyming patter: adapted, with apologies, from Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel 1904 – 1991 ; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - 1960):

Left hand, Right Hand
Back hand, Front Hand
(Two Fish appear one in each of my hands, one red and one blue)

One Fish, Two Fish,
Red Fish, Blue Fish,
Here Fish, There Fish.
Which Fish? Where Fish?
Here Fish? No, There Fish!

And so it goes on for about three minutes or so. The fish appear and disappear, then a yellow fish joins them and the three fish play a game of hide and seek. At the end they all disappear, but come back for a bow. The sponge ball routine is a very standard sponge ball routine, but using moves chosen for work with different color sponge fish.
