Mental Masterpieces

Larry Becker

Mental Masterpieces by Larry BeckerLarry Becker is a name in mentalism that doesn't need any introduction. Here he performs a 40-minute show in front of a live audience and then teaches every nuance of every effect performed except the last effect.
  • H.G. Wells' Time Machine: An audience member thinks of a year in the seventeenth century and writes it on an envelope containing a modern coin. The coin envelope is held by the audience member and remains in full view throughout. Upon opening the envelope an old pirate coin is found to have the thought of date engraved on it.

Clearly Predictable

Larry Becker

Clearly Predictable by Larry BeckerThis is one of the slickest and cleanest prediction effects I know.

A spectator gets a sealed envelope to keep, circles one classified ad in a newspaper, and removes a bill from her wallet and signs it with her initials. Another spectator completely fairly selects a card from a spectator shuffled pack. Despite all of these fair and clean selections the mentalist has predicted all of them. The selected card is printed on the newspaper, and the prediction envelope holds the serial number of the bill and a copy of the classified which was freely selected by the spectator.

Some preparatory...

It's About Time!

Larry Becker

It's About Time! by Larry BeckerThe performer states that for thousands of years, devices have been invented and used to measure and keep track of time. The first time measuring obelisks and water clocks were introduced in Mesopotamia and Egypt as early as 2000 BC. Tonight, he continues, we're going to explore both time and its relation to man's ability to project images telepathically.

Removing a small packet of blank cards, the performer explains they will be used to focus on an hour and a timekeeping device that will be thought of by a member of the audience. A volunteer is randomly selected to assist in the demonstration....

T. C. Spectre

Larry Becker

T. C. Spectre by Larry BeckerThe spectator removes one card from a full face-up deck and places it into an envelope. This happens while the mentalist turns his back so that he can't see which card the spectator chooses. The remaining deck is gathered and turned face-down by the spectator. The envelope is closed and shown from both sides to demonstrate that nothing can be seen through the envelope. Then the envelope is placed by the spectator inside another envelope.

The mentalist then reads the spectators mind to reveal the card that is inside the envelope. Larry has come up with a nice presentation. He doesn't simply...

Larry Becker's Magic Castle Lecture

Larry Becker

Larry Becker's Magic Castle Lecture by Larry Becker
"Everyone should work the Castle for a week. Not for the money, but for the memories." - Larry Becker
Many years ago the first mentalism trick I purchased was "Psycho II" an incredibly clever method, so clean, so fair but what a deception. Larry in his own words in 1984:

At the Psychic Entertainers Association convention in St. Louis, I was requested to demonstrate my abilities for the TV media. The effect that I chose to perform was "Psycho II". Approximately 25 years ago, I released the grand-daddy of this remarkable ESP design miracle as just plain "Psycho". It proved to be an award...
