Firstly here’s a link to me performing Randi Rains 100% Safe Russian Roulette Method “T2 Sterile” which I would unreservedly recommend.
The presentation, music, use of visuals and the patter structure etc are all of my own creation though:
And in this second video, you can see me perform a different methodology for this routine which is also, due to the methods used 100% safe unlike many versions which are available on the market, many of which people have been injured with whilst performing.
This methodology is mine and will be included on a future DVD training package which is expected to be released in Mid August 2012.
I hope you enjoy the two videos and would urge anyone wishing to perform a totally safe version of Russian Roulette Spike/Nail routines to either invest in Randi Rains T2 Sterile package and/or to look out for “The Mentalists Cook Book” DVD set which is due for release in August 2012.
I loved the concept in “The Red Carpet” routine created by Ari Soroka and released by Jason Palter as it really got my creative juices flowing and after much thinking I came up with solutions to all the things about the routine that to me I did not feel comfortable about…
I wanted a more logical and innocent way of numbers being selected that had a logical and believable in keeping premise with the routine, and at the same time would make all of the props used seem totally logical and innocent.
I wanted to be able to do more with the props than just do the its apparently gone wrong and then “head character reveal” so that it became more of a feature routine.
I wanted to combine music to add an extra element of impact to the routine, and I wanted with the same props to be able to reveal a different character at the end for repeat shows and such like (which you can now do with my version and variations and in a manner whereby effective use of music to point the routine is also still possible)
And overall I wanted to tie the routine into a story and narrative that would have far greater emotional impact on my audiences and thus lead to even more applause.
In truth other than revealing a freely chosen character by having a mask on my head at the end of the routine, what I developed has ended up bearing next to no relation to the original “Red Carpet” whatsoever, but it was that routine which originally set me thinking to my thanks must go to Jason Palter for releasing that and of course Ari Soroka for devising it.
You can see the end result of my brainstorming and creativity in this short clip here, and for the record the onstage volunteers whom I read the minds of correctly all have a 100% COMPLETELY free choice of Six Different Character Images that are on the page they choose (each page in the book bears 6 different character images) and indeed the final person (where it seems to go wrong) also has a totally free choice of Six Different images from the page they arrive on:
Overall I am very proud of the end result which I truly feel is far more deceptive than the “Red Carpet” which originally inspired me and I hope you feel the same way to.
Or for a much better quality video of the routine being performed take a look at this clip
Incidentally the two short routines in the above clip before my “DVD Book” presentation which was inspired by “The Red Carpet” are 3 Card Opener by Eddie Burke (Mr E Enterprises) and Primal Prediction by Ken Dyne for anyone who is interested.
This routine and additional routines that can be performed using the same “DVD Book” will all be explained in my “Mentalists Cook Book” Package which is due for release in Mid August 2012.
I’d love to hear your comments on my routine which has been getting great audience reactions for quite some time now!
Both as an Impromtu Mentalism Performance piece and also as a planned Stage Performance I personally love the Abnormal lift and have been performing such in my shows for over 23 years now!
In the early 90’s I started to give them the power to lift, then took it away again before giving it them back one more time, and indeed I performed the Abnormal Lift in this manner on Granada Sky TV’s show “Psychic Livetime” also in the early 90’s pre-dating others who claim this to have been their idea.
And for the record taking their power away and then giving it back was not my idea either, as I’d seen it performed many years earlier by old time Stage Hypnotist Delavar and few years later had been fortunate enough to meet Delavar and gain his blessing to perform the routine in that manner.
However over the years I have developed an even more Psychologically and Emotionally Powerful presentation for The Abnormal Lift, something that will be discussed in detail in my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD package that is due for release in Mid August 2012.
In the meantime take a look at just one of my unique presentations for “The
Abnormal Lift” – I have numerous variations for this routine which will be explained on the forthcoming DVD set.
For now I hope you enjoy the routine and short video clip that follows and would recommend “The Abonormal Lift” as a truly powerful and memorable performance piece for any performer.
With my hat tipped firmly and thanks for the inspiration and ideas offered to all
Great performers who have already offered their variations on the “Chair Test” routine to the market, I’d like to share with you my Chair Test Mentalism Mind Magic Routine without any Chairs being used that I have been performing on and off for a little over Six Months now with great reactions.
I always where possible like to include music into my routines as much as possible and an element of situational comedy style humour whilst still retaining (or preferably amplifying) the reaction to the effect.
For the record there is no thumb writing used in the clip you are about to see of my routine, a routine that will be explained in depth in my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD Package which is due for release in Mid August 2012.
I hope you enjoy watching the routine and look forward to hearing your feedback.
It seems that there’s a new version of ACAAN being released every five minutes and I’ve personally spent a fortune on them over the years including most recently purchasing The Berglas Effects which by the way is a great read..
However having looked at them all I have to be honest and say that I still only use the two versions that I have now been performing for many years.
For Stage Performances my preferred routine as it has a Triple Whammy Ending that I have found makes it more memorable for audiences is the one you can see me perform in this clip
And my favourite method for Close-Up Performances (although on the odd occasion I have used it on stage also) is the one that you can see me perform in this clip
The methods used in the first video are sure fire and guaranteed to work every time which is why its my preferred stage method, whereas the method used in the second video only works in this manner around 85% of the time, the other 15% of the time one or two methods not entirely dissimilar to the kind of thing Mr. Berglas teaches in his book have to be used to ensure a positive outcome.
I hope you enjoy the clips and look forward to hearing your feedback of these two routines, the methods for which I devised & will be teaching in great detail in my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD Set which is due for release in Mid August 2012.
I personally think that a touch of comedy is a good thing in Mentalism especially at the start of the show for gaining rapport with the audience.
As an example of this here’s a routine I use at the start of my show which is inspired by an original idea I saw Max Maven teach in his lecture in the early 90’s at Blackpool Magic Convention, with a few slight alterations by myself.
Its an easily adaptable idea, which I have in the past also used to tie in with and promote product names of items sold/manufactured by the company that has employed me.
Anyhow take a look at the video, its not belly aching hilarious, its just a spot of unexpected light hearted humour at the start of the show which I have found helps knock the audiences guard down and gets them onside and more attentative for what’s to come.
I Hope you enjoy the clip and get some inspiration from it, although obviously I claim originality and rights on the routine as its performed here:
Oh and for the record the dropping of the prediction which seems to be an accident was all pre-planned and is all part of the humour and also psychology I use to knock the audience off guard for the truly amazing stuff that’s then to follow.
This kind of use of Psychology to manipulate your audiences is something I will be discussing in depth in my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD package which is due for release in mid August 2012.
I love the “Make The Cards Match Routine” and have been using it in my close up performances for what is fast approaching 30 years now,
However in recent years I’ve started to include it in my Stage performances with great effect and come up with a way of presenting it so its all about the audience members being successful, strokes their egos and at the end draws maximum applause from them.
In my live show there is quite a time gap between revealing that the last two cards match and then finally the audience discovering that all the other four pairs of cards also match.
During this time several other routines are performed, so that when it comes to the very end of the show and I reveal that all the four sets of cards that were discarded earlier also all match (and I praise the audience for achieving such) this comes as a much unexpected surprise to the audience and draws maximum applause from them (often standing ovations) as you’ll see in this clip –
I’ll be discussing the Psychology of structuring routines in order to gain maximum applause and also make the audience feel good, thus in turn making them like you and thus making you more memorable in my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD set which is due for release in mid August 2012.
I hope you enjoy the clip and it gets you thinking how usually reserved for Close Up performance items can with a little thought be transformed in feature stage presentations with success.
I love Hoys Tossed Out Deck Card Mentalism Routine and indeed have featured it in my stage shows for over 20 years.
However since the late 1990’s I’ve been performing it as a long distance person on the end of the phone becomes the mind reader type of effect.
With some clever psychology, effective use of Dual Reality and clever linguistics, its become one of the effects from my shows that people talk about most.
For the record I’ve been performing it in this manner since the late 1990’s (and have evidence of such on file) and have also performed this for TV (in Amsterdam in 2002) I mention that as I’m aware of others since those dates having claimed to have created such which I am sure must on their parts have been nothing more than a case of independent creation.
Anyhow this routine (and other variations that I use at times) will all be detailed and discussed in-depth on my forthcoming “Mentalists Cook Book” DVD package which is due for release in August 2012.
You can also see videos of me performing numerous other Mentalism Effects (many of which are original to me in method and/or presentation and which will be explained in depth on the Forthcoming “Mentalists CookBook” DVD Package on my You Tube Channel Here – http://www.youtube.com/user/celebrityhypnotist
The Holy Grail Of Mentalism – The Berglas Effect ACAAN – LIVE..
Review of The Berglas Effects by Richard Kaufman & David Berglas…
The Holy Grail of Mentalism – ACAAN Any Card At Any Number Style Berglas Effects
Having now read the book “The Berglas Effects” by Richard Kaufman, whilst it is excellent in many regards, you need to consider that the newly reprinted second edition of this book will cost you at least $140 (approx £88) to have shipped to you worldwide…
And for that price your essentially going to have to start learning a completely new way to handle a deck of cards in order to learn literally only half a dozen effects all of which are very similar in nature and style, and all of which will take a lot and I mean an awful lot of dedicated practice before you ever have a chance of pulling them off in public.
I’ll continue this review in a moment but first take a few moments to watch these few short videos, bearing in mind that you can learn all of these Secrets and many others (enough for a complete Stage and Close-Up Magical Mentalism Show) for just £60 (approx $94)
See Jonathan Royle perform one of his versions of Any Card At Any Number in this short video…
And then to See His Even Cleaner Version of The Berglas Effect Check this clip out –
In this Admittedly slightly unclear video clip, that was filmed on an old mobile phone in a nightclub bar, Hypnotist Robert Temple Performs another version of ACAAN that is taught in “The Klear Thoughtz” Package..
And in this Clip Stuart Cassel’s performs one of the versions of “The Berglas Effect” Any Card At Any Number that is inside the pages of his book “The Holy Grail of Mentalism” as per – http://www.magicalguru.com/acaan.html
SECRET’S EXPOSED = Then To Discover The Secrets of These Two Methods, along with numerous other Commercial Ways to perform ACAAN and other Mentalism Miracles take a look at http://www.magicalguru.com/klearthoughtz/
Bear in mind that when you order the Klear Thoughtz Package you will learn exactly how to perform all of the versions of ACAAN and The Berglas Effect that you have seen performed in the videos above and also will learn how to peform this variation entitled ANORAK (Any Number on Reverse of Any Kard) as per details at – http://www.magicalguru.com/anorak.html
And whats more you’ll learn Dozen’s of other Complete Stage and Close-Up Mentalism Routines including amongst many others this Long Distance Remote Viewing Card Routine
And remember you can learn all of the above, along with Numerous other Magical and Mentalism Routines for just £60 (approx $94) and the methods used are far easier to learn and perform than anything you will find within the pages of The Berglas Effects book by Richard Kaufman and David Berglas of that I can assure you.
But hey I know what your thinking, your thinking this sounds to good to be true, well consider that for just £60 (approx $94) at http://www.magicalguru.com/klearthoughtz/ you will not only get the “Klear Thoughts” Ebook, but also will be sent numerous Physical Training DVDs Post Free Anywhere in the world and you’ll start realise where your money would be best invested.
Indeed as part of this bumper package you’ll also get the “Holy Grail of Mentalism” book of which personal friend to David Berglas, the man voted Worlds Greatest Mind Reader Mentalist Marc Paul has said:
“Thanks for “The Holy Grail of Mentalism”. There is some seriously good thinking here, I particularly like the section on how to create “real miracles”. I have always believed that truly inexplicable mentalism is only achieved by going that extra mile; you obviously believe the same”
I know I may seem a little biased, but I can assure you that not only would you be spending less money by ordering the “Klear Thoughtz” package, but also you’ll be getting access to far more easy to learn and easier to perform real world commercial material.
Take a look at http://www.magicalguru.com/klearthoughtz/ and also take a look at the details at the links on that page which explain all of the material you’ll recieve and learn for your one time investment of just £60 (approx $94) and you’ll realise that this Limited Time Only bumper package offer represents the biggest bargain of your magical lifetime.
And Consider that amongst all the Bonus Materials you will also find “Royles Thoughts On The One Ahead Routine” which when published within the pages of Paul Rohamnys Mental Epic Compendium caused Magic Reviewer Cris Johnson to state:
There are so many routines to explore that while I have combed through this book cover to cover, I haven’t retained nearly as much as I like.
Personally, one of the most mind-blowing routines in the entire book is Jonathan Royle’s “Royle’s Thoughts on the One-Ahead Principle.”
I challenge you to read this section of the book and not feel energized by what appears to be a simple card routine. It is, for me, one of the most stunning routines I’ve ever read.
I only wish I could have seen it performed and experienced the impossibility of it before reading about the work.
While I don’t expect any Mentalist who hates using playing cards in his/her act to be totally converted after reading that section, I do believe that this routine has the BEST chance to cause some of these folks to re-consider some of their views.
So the bottom line is, if you’ve got hours and hours each day to practice for the next 6 months (or perhaps longer) then you may well enjoy learning the material inside “The Berglas Effects”
However if you want material that is easy to learn, relatively easy to perform (well actually very easy compared to contents of The Berglas Effects) and would like to get ten times the amount of workable material for both Stage and Close Up for a fraction of the cost then you’d be wise to take a look at whats currently on offer for a Limited Time only at:
