Paul A. Lelekis presents 8 real-world ESP effects for Close-Up and Cabaret performance. ESP is always a favorite with spectators. With these offerings, you can perform an entire amazing show, out of your pockets!
1) Fantasy Jacks is one of Paul's favorite effects to perform…and it's easy to do. The four Jacks are placed into the empty card case. Two selections are made and lost in the deck. The performer asks the spectator to choose any three of the Jacks…when the deck is spread, the three Jacks are seen "sandwiching" the two selections! But that's not all! When the card box is opened the lone, unchosen Jack is found. AMAZING!
2) Trio Predicto - A prediction is made. From a shuffled deck, the spectator is allowed to choose 8-12 cards…any cards he wants - NO FORCE! The cards are given to the spectator who puts them into 3 piles … the top three cards match the predictions!
3) Time After Time - A spectator writes any time of day she wishes down…to the minute – and, yet the performer divines her thoughts. Very powerful routine!
4) Watch After Time - A spectator writes down any time of the day, and then another spectator takes a watch and spins the dial stem to any unknown time. The performer
writes a time down on another pad…and the performer's time, the spectator's time AND the time on the watch ALL MATCH!
5) Triple Revelation - This impromptu effect is amazing! It is Paul's rendition of a famous routine by Al Baker…only this effect doesn't require a special deck (deck can be borrowed) and doesn't require two forces. This one is a magician-fooler!
6) Telepathic Spectator - This is another of Paul's favorites that he has performed for over two decades. A husband and wife peek two different cards - no force. The magician mentally divines the husband's card without controlling the cards in any way. But then…the husband divines the wife's freely selected card. Neither the husband nor the wife will have any idea how this brilliant effect works.
7) Impromptu Book Test - This amazing and easy to do book test is a real winner. It is based on a Richard Himber effect…except this one is impromptu. Got to a party or someone's home and if there are books there, you can perform a miracle.
8) Double Prediction - This Nick Trost effect (with Paul's addition and patter) is a fun way to include the spectators into your routine. The magician makes two predictions and the spectator then turns a card over and sticks it anywhere in the deck he feels. This card is found between the two predictions. The cards are never controlled by the performer. The patter makes this routine hilarious!
