A routine and script that (with an assist from Mel Mellers), transforms a rather dry piece of mentalism into a fun and entertaining piece of magic.
The plot of the Add-A-Number effect doesn't lend itself to the magical performer, as the audience knows that they're watching tricks, not psychic phenomenon, which means that the presentation of "seeing the future" isn't as effective as it could be.
Plus, the method is closely tied to the revelation. How could you predict a number unless you somehow knew what everyone would write or you switched the numbers?
This script - with a huge boost from Mel Mellers - fixes that problem by changing the plot from a prediction, into a "message from an impossible location".
Laughs, mystery, and plenty of audience participation.
As a bonus to owners of the JOL Mentalist Pad - a quick and easy reset.
