The thickness is just over 1”. This may be the best routine that packs flat and plays big ever created. The new signs are tough as nails and will last for many years to come. The signs are now white with black numbers.

The training and routines are exactly the same as before. Five dynamite methods to cover any situation from close-up to parlor to stage!

“The Human Phone Number has been my #1 CLOSER for 21years!” Bob Kohler

The Human Phone Number has been one of my most closely guarded secrets. Until now I’ve only shared it with three performers: Tim Conover, Michael Weber and Jon Stetson. Thanks to all of them for keeping the secret.

Intrigued…Read on.

The Phone Book Test is a classic of mentalism. The basic effect is very direct. The performer introduces either a prediction or target to the audience. A spectator randomly chooses one phone number from the thousands and thousands in the book. When the prediction or target is revealed the audience is amazed because it’s a perfect match of the selected phone number! What makes any routine a classic? What attributes do all classics share? I believe all classics have three attributes. First, the effect is easy for the audience to understand. Second, the effect must be memorable. The audience should talk about seeing it FOREVER. Third, the reaction the routine generates must be tremendous . I’m talking about standing ovations. The Human Phone Number is destined to become a classic.

There have been many notable versions of the Phone Book Test in the past. Routines that stand out are Dunninger’s, Anneman ‘s, Bob Cassidy’s and Barrie Richardson’s. I first became enamored with the effect in 1987 after reading Bob Cassidy’s routine is his book “The Art of Mentalism.” I tried the routine out for a test drive and liked the results. It was strong. It also got me started on my addiction to the plot.

In 1988 my good friend Barry Wood worked out an excellent Phone Book Test that he shared with me. Bob Cassidy’s test reveals a name chosen at random from the White Pages. Barry’s routine revealed a phone number from the Yellow Pages. To Barry’s credit his routine used known mentalism methods combined with two brilliant new concepts. It was then and still is a very strong routine.

Next in my quest for the ultimate Phone Book Test was Barrie Richardson’s “One In A Million.” Barrie’s routine revealed a randomly selected phone number from the White Pages. Great method. Great presentation. Barrie’s routine was tipped to me with his permission long before it was released and I thank him for helping inspire me.” – Bob Kohler
