Rick provides a choice of safe designs for this escape. Maisel normally uses a safe, made by “Yale” or any safe that Rick can contort into (an antique Door safe or modem, high-security fireproof safes) In either escape, Rick is handcuffed and squeezes himself into the safe, leaving barely enough room for a minimal amount of air. An attendant slams the door shut and locks it. Rick must escape before suffocating, since the air supply will be exhausted in two or three minutes.
Performed, in full view of the audience, and/or even completely surrounded by audience members. In less than three minutes, the safe door opens and an unshackled Rick rolls out of the safe, gasping for air. The entire escape last about ten to fifteen minutes (an/or part of larger show), and can be performed indoors and outdoors.
