Hello all whos reading,

I have an upcoming event, Talent show, and I am looking for a perfect Mentalism trick for my stage act. I had in mind like a phone book or a newspaper is chosen from 4 others, and then at random a page is seleted and then a word or phone # is called out and then it matches with the envolpe that had been mixed and handed out to a audience member and and it matches the word or phone # picked at RANDOM!


Any trick out there something along the lines of this one I had in mind? If not just go ahead and list a good stage trick like this or any you like that is good for stage.


Thanks everyone!

Only one trick??

I would start out with a quick trick lize gazzo tossed deck (sold here on penguin)

Then you could do a book test or something...

No, this isn't one trick, its going to be one out of 3 tricks so it needs to be kinda long trick like 2mins to 5mins and its going to be on stage, my stage is big so I need something big so everyone can see whats happening.

'a illion to one' by corinda. on page 101 of 13 steps is a great stage trick. i have it set up in my house and only do it when there is about 10 - 20 people are over. The more people watching, the better for this one. its all in the presentation.

Everyone saw that on Phenomenon.

I actually used the "Triple Prediction" from Mark Wilson's Complete Course once to great effect. It can be made to work on the stage quite easily.

Check out Mental Epic. It's a 3 prediction effect that uses 3 different spectators from the audience. Pretty strong stuff.

three words - One ahead principle.
With the right presentation, this blows everyone away. if you use it in conjunction with something like a book test it really will fool everyone and it also looks like you are reading minds. It can play huge, it can play small. great principle.

What's the rest of your act like? What stage material do you already know/do?

Also, when is the talent show?

Have a look see at the mentalism section of emagicsupply.com

What you're asking about sounds like a combination of the AWAP Book Test and Stop the Presses.
