Two routines that Luke feels are reflective of some of his best work to date.
Four spectators write four numbers. A fifth adds them and the number matches a prediction as well as every spectator's result who participated in the experiment. A combination of methods cancels each other to make this an unexplainable mystery.
[This is the same routine as the second effect in Three Cheers for the Underrated.]
Touching on Hoy
Three spectators are seated on chairs on stage. The performer asks each of them to close their eyes. He then taps the first spectator on the shoulder and asks them to think of a simple shape. He then taps the second spectator on the shoulder and asks them to think of a date that holds some significance to them. Finally he taps the third spectator on the shoulder and asks that they think of a name of importance.
The performer then asks all three spectators to open their eyes and stand up. Slowly moving along the line of the three spectators, the performer looks intently into each of their eyes. He excitedly names aloud a shape, a date, and a name. Asking them to sit down if he was accurate with their thoughts, all three spectators sit.
