Dynamite Book Test – One Book Version by Dennis Loomis

February 7, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Read every word carefully. Nothing has been left out. If the description fools you you will be devastated by the effect. A spectator is freely chosen not a prearranged confederate or stooge. You walk to the other side of the stage and turn your back or are legitimately blindfolded. No peeking. The spectator is given an absolutely free choice of one of three paperback books. The spectator picks up any book thinks of any page number does not tell anyone the page number writes nothing down no force and the spectator can change his mind as often as he wishes. The spectator opens the book to that page number and thinks of the first word on the page. With no pumping nothing written no letter by letter spelling you name the word. The spectator thinks of any other page number tells no one the page number he can change his mind as often as he wishes and turns to that page. The spectator looks at the last word on the page. You tell him the word he is looking at

The Enlightenment by Ben Harris

February 7, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Enlightenment by Ben Harris The Ultimate Floating Card The Power Of Enlightenment is not the talent for acquiring wisdom-as one might assume. Rather it is the rarely seen ability to make any given object incrementally lighter-sometimes to the point of defying gravity-to enlighten. Heres the key effect A spectator shuffles the deck and nominates any of the cards as her favourite card. This card is removed examined and placed face up onto the top of the shuffled deck. The spectator HOLDS THE DECK IN HER OUTSTRETCHED HAND. On the performers command the selected card slowly breaks free from the vice-like grip of gravity-rises into the air-floats for as long as the performer wants and then slowly descends. So freaked-out is the spectator that she breaks with protocol and reaches for the selected card-turning it over-looking for some secret. NOTHING IS FOUND It simply looks amazing. Spooky. Hauntingly beautiful. Amazing magnetic control feels like real magic IMPORTANT NOTES Spectator handles the cards throughout. Performable in the spectators hand on the table or in your hand. SELF-CONTAINED nothing added or taken away.

Along with an introduction by Earl Nelson and Billy McCombs interview with Whit this dvd includes twenty minutes of video clips from Whits performances over the last twenty years on cruise ships at the Magic Castle and at Magic Island and on large theater stages. These clips illustrate how to handle various types of spectator volunteers and various reactions and comments from the volunteer. This routine originally developed for Whits street magic act in the 1960s is considered by most experts to be the most commercial version of the linking rings available for any venue. Dai Vernon claimed that this routine had the first completely new comedy premise I have seen in magic in thirty years. If you dont have a linking ring routine and you want to add one to your stand-up repertoire Whit Haydns Comedy 4 Ring Routine is the place to start
