Since I have discovered penguin, this has to be one of my favorite effects - mentalism or otherwise.
As a close up street performer, cards, coins, and money are still my bread and butter. But
every now and then on the street or in shows, pulling a true miracle out of your hat will not only
augment whatever you've just done, but it will be a life changing EXPERIENCE for the person you
performed it for. They won't see it as a trick if you perform it correctly, they will literally
view you as something different - and Dark Arts provides everything you need to perform a miracle.
If you are a mentalist and have read Derren Brown, Banachek, Bob Cassidy, Gellar, Osterland -
this is still a $10 download you can add to your arsenal and begin using right away and it'll be
worth every penny. With that background, you can use this simple technique to employ a plethora of
additional psychological twists to your audience, keeping this Dark Arts technique fresh at all
If you know NOTHING about mentalism and have never heard of the artists I mentioned,
first get this - then immediately google those names! I digress. If you've never even heard the
word mentalism, download this NOW. Listen to EVERY word Matt Johnson says in the tutorial, practice
on family members, and go perform! If performed correctly, this will be your favorite effect
I HIGHLY recommend this unique, versatile, impromptu effect that can literally be
done anywhere, any time, in front of any audience.
