Mind Sniffing- A straightforward mindreading effect that has everything you want in an opener: visual focus, direct plot, audience involvement and a good amount of humor leading to a very satisfying mystery and a strong applause cue.
A Lesson In Memory- The entire audience experience a tranformative moment when what seems like an ‘impossible’ mental challenge suddenly becomes easy! A new and original demonstration that Ian has never published before. Not a trick… this one’s for real.
The Psychic Crowd- A fascinating two-phase routine in which you demonstrate strong, pure telepathy. In Phase 1, the audience attempts to read the mind of a spectator who has written down one, single piece of information. In Phase 2, taking the demonstration to the next level, you prove you can read the spectator’s mind even when there’s nothing written down and you have nothing to work with except her thoughts.
Truth Or Lies- One of Ian’s signature pieces that he has presented all over the world, everywhere from parties to academic conferences and corporate lectures. It’s a human lie-detector routine that’s simple to perform but makes a big impression!
Math Genius- Another demonstration in which the audience experience that moment when an ‘impossible’ mental challenge — this time involving numbers — suddenly becomes easy. One spectator discovers he or she can perform lightning mathematical calculations they would never have thought possible! Like ‘A Lesson In Memory’, there’s no trick, no fakery… this one’s for real.
Pulp Prediction- A relatively straightforward effect that fits either a ‘persuasion and influence’ or ‘prediction’ theme. The method isn’t new but you’ll enjoy the presentational twists, built on two promises you make at the start, that turn it into a big, feature item with a great visual climax. Plus there’s a highly satisfying ‘slow burn’ gag built into the routine.
Twin Think- One of Ian’s favourite card tricks. Perform it anywhere — you don’t even need a table. The theme is ‘minds in harmony’ and the effect involves two spectators from the audience. It may be ‘just a card trick’… but wait until you see the reaction it gets!
One In A Million- It’s a book test but a very special one. Not only is it quite possibly the purest, most deceptive book test you can present, with apparently zero chance of trickery, but there’s a twist ending that you will NOT see coming and that your audiences will love! The script and presentation are well worth studying and the operational principle has countless applications.
