VOLUME #3 – The Acquaintance
The Last Man Standing – Marcs approach to the single card in envelope premise, a random volunteer is asked to do the impossible as you tell them that you placed a single card inside of the envelope you are holding. What color is it? High or Low? Odd or Even? What suit? Believe it or not they get it absolutely right every time. No palming, no complex system just an easy to do effect that fools the best.
What, Where, When? – Three volunteers are asked to join you for a demonstration of remote viewing. One is to visualize a simple design, the other a location somewhere in the world and the last a time of year. You divine everything in a very clever routine that you can carry in your pocket yet amazes an entire theatre. Multiple possibilities and different outcomes are possible. The effect can be adapted to any theme once the premise is understood.
From Beyond The Grave – You introduce a small wallet which holds a single envelope as you tell a participant that this is for them, the envelope is marked with their initials as they are asked to regress to another time, place and even body. Every choice is completely free and comes from the participants own imagination. You open the wallet and remove the initialed envelope which is opened to reveal a letter that predicts every choice with pure accuracy. No palming, forcing or impression devices. No pre show or instant stooge.
Mind-To-Mind Location – A group of index cards are written on by the entire audience, they are gathered and one randomly chosen by a spectator. The name of a person comes through, after some thought you announce that it is the father, another name comes through which proves to be the mother, both names are divined clearly even though you have not seen the index card, you next get the exact date written on the index card. Obviously one person in the room realizes you have divined their thoughts at which point you go into the audience and locate that very person.
The Prize Draw – “This is going straight into my act.” Marcs handling of the famous Bank Night routine is taken to a whole new dimension. Everyone wins but not quite as much as you do. A fantastic routine that uses a principle lost in time but is sure to be used again and again once this masterpiece is seen. This has been one of Marcs most talked about routines by magicians, mentalists and of course the paying public for the last five years. In my opinion the best bank night rotine ever.
