history

The Chop Cup trick was popularized by Al Wheatley, a professional magician who performed under the name Chop Chop. His original Chop Cup, created in the mid 1950’s and presented in 1955 Santa Barbara Convention, was made out of a section of hollow bamboo and marketed as Chop Chop’s One Cup & Ball Routine. By 1957, Wheatley’s company, Excato Magic, was advertising a modified aluminum Chop Cup in magic magazines.

The Chop Cup became a popular magician’s tool in part due to the celebrity of Don Alan, who made it a staple of his act. Don Alan performed his Chop Cup routine on the “Ed Sullivan Show” in 1960.
