Just to say that Out of this World is one of my all time favourite tricks, the patter that can be created for it it endless.
I have already had about 10 paid gigs with several different people, at each occasion (without meaning to sound too cocky here) I have impressed many people. Unfortunatley these gigs have not consisted entirely of mentalism, mainly because my repetoir of mentalism tricks isw kinda limited. I have PK touches, out of this world, a couple of simple magicians choice and 50/50 technique decks that have both been put into a sort of mentalism routine but running from sponge ball magic (one of my faves) into a deep mind magic routine doesnt really fit. I have also been making excellent use of the riffle force for my mentalism tricks, this combined with the burst bubble suggestion, which was taken from a book on slightly too advanced mentalism for me (suggestion etc.) that unfortunatelty I cannot mention (non-penguin advertising or whatever you wanna call it), has bowled over many. It is the completely fair non-gimmiky mentalism tricks that interest me, does anyone know of any good ones?
The "where do I get started with mentalism" question has been answered before, by me and others. This thread should help:
