Blindfold Tips by John Archer (DVD)
Price: $39.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

What can I say about John that you don't already know? John is one of the funniest entertainers I have ever seen! His comedy is funny and his magic is strong. What more could you possibly want from a performer?

The ultimate, most comprehensive guide to one of mentalism's most versatile routines. John Archer has performed this routine all over the world and it has become one of his signature pieces. Imagine being anywhere in the world, grabbing a couple of coins, some gaffer tape, a blindfold, pen and paper from the local store and being able to perform a hilarious twenty minute, mind-blowing routine!

Now for the first time, John goes in-depth to explain all the secrets and nuances that have made this one of his most requested effects. This is not just a quick trick, it is an entire act that builds and builds into a standing ovation finale. This is the real work on the blindfold routine and it will open up a world of possibilities. Shot in front of a live audience, you will experience John at his very best, performing the routine, and then he goes into every little detail with you, in an informal discussion-style explanation, which is equally entertaining.

Running Time Approximately 1hr 21min

Great intro to blindfold Report this review

It is almost impossible not to like John Archer, which is no doubt the secret behind his success. His comedic skills and ability to engage with the audience are tremendous. This is a large part of what you are getting here, beyond the basics of how to do blindfold. The man has been doing this for a long time, and he tells you how to get out of toush situations based on his experiences (e.g., when things go wrong and you cannot see, audience management, how to save your eyebrows, etc.) but the real value is watching how he handles spectators.

Now, I cannot do John's routine because, frankly, part of the reason he can do some of the things he can do (e.g., how he comes on to the girl volunteer and it's really funny) wouldn't work with my persona, even if my wife was cool with it, lol. But there are great ideas here, regardless, that can be adapted. I can however see someone being disappointed who wanted more ideas about how to structure a serious blindfold routine, do alternate stunts (like driving a car) etc. None of that is on here, you just get a very simple approach and John's thoughts about it.

The actual mechanics of blindfold are rather simple. If you want to learn how to do it, this is a good resource. If you want to learn how to do it and get ideas for being funny with it, this is a great resource.

I like Johns material, but not always the way he presents it. That being said he does give A+ advice regarding the blindfold and some very clever insights that really add to the effect
