The Black and Red Separation by Steve PellegrinoA new stand-up routine and method for out of this world.

This is Out of This World adapted for the stage. Using jumbo cards and two volunteers, a man and woman are successfully able to decide which cards are red and which ones are black. The man selecting the black cards and the woman selecting the red ones.

This comes with a complete presentation developed for a mentalism show, although would also fit into a magic show.

The cards do not have to be set in a special order and can be mixed up (not just cut) by the volunteers.

It's a fun routine to present and your volunteers leave...

Rippin' on Leipzig by Steve PellegrinoThis is a signed torn and restored cigarette paper, where the spectator's initials are visible throughout the tearing process!

The magician removes a cigarette paper from a cigarette paper package. The paper is initialed by the spectator. Slowly the magician starts to tear the paper into four separate pieces. Each piece is displayed, including the torn piece with the spectators initials. The pieces are balled up and when the small paper ball is open, the paper is restored.

This is a great stand-alone piece of magic or as a convincing follow-up to a standard cigarette paper tear.

Koran's Medallion Reminted by Steve PellegrinoKoran's Medallion has amazed people for decades, but many magicians and mentalists have avoided presenting the routine because of the straight-forward method.

Features include:

  • 4 techniques for the numbers to actually be engraved on the back of the medallion and not just 'inscribed'.
  • Finesse on handling the props, writing the numbers, and loading the medallion.
  • How to find one of the best medallions for...

Al Koran's Headline Countdown: Special Edition by Steve PellegrinoAl Koran's Headline Countdown is a classic effect in mentalism - A spectator holds an envelope containing a prediction. They choose a number between one and sixteen. The mentalist tears a sheet of newspaper into sixteen pieces. The pieces are counted down to the number the spectator thought of. The spectator reads the headline on the piece of paper that was counted to. The prediction in the sealed envelope matches the headline the spectator chose!

This has always been a spectacular effect, but some mentalists have stayed away from it because it involved some calculations in order to position...

Getting Ambitious With Color Monte by Steve PellegrinoJim Temple's classic packet effect many of us learned early on is still an amazing routine and has been part of Steve Pellegrino's working close-up repertoire for 30 years.

The classic Color Monte shines over other packet monte routines in several ways:

  1. No gaffed cards are required
  2. No table is needed
  3. The spectator isn't stung by getting it wrong
  4. It has a built-in storyline
When you work with a routine for 30 years like Steve has, you develop touches to the routine that aren't described in the original instructions. Getting Ambitious With Color Monte includes:
  1. The psychology behind...

The Spirits Click by Steve PellegrinoA Spirit Bell & Rapping Hand type of effect that is practical and fits in your pocket! It's mysterious, it's funny. It's a routine that you can tailor to your personality.

Are you communicating with the other side? Is it your psychic abilities or just an unknown mystery?

A little toy clicker in the shape of a cricket is shown. You demonstrate that it works by pressing on a metal tab under the cricket, which creates a loud clicking sound. You suggest that the cricket is going to answer questions in a mysterious way. You bring out a small box that is just large enough to hold the cricket....

Michael Skinner's Impromptu Cups and Balls Routine by Steve PellegrinoMichael Skinner's Impromptu Cups & Balls is one of the unpublished gems that he taught to a select few students. The routine was performed on The Tonight Show, June 1, 1973 when Michael was in the prime of his career.

Clips of the performance have been around on YouTube on and off for several years, but only a few people knew the complete work for the routine. Some have tried to duplicate it, but missed because they didn't understand Michael's subtleties and timing, especially his startling "Scatter Phase" where the 3 balls start out under the center cup and in a brief moment each ball appears...

Pay Check Challenge by Steve PellegrinoThe Pay Check Challenge is a 10 minute feature presentation that you can present as described or change to fit your persona.

The mentalist offers a challenge. His paycheck for the performance is going to be placed in one of several envelopes. If he determines which envelope it's in, he gets to keep the check. If not, he forfeits the check and leaves empty handed.

Five people are brought to the stage. You show several envelopes, each numbered. In each envelope is a blank index card. The index cards are shown not to have any markings, watermarks, nail nicks and that are what they appear...

The Seven Keys of the Jinx by Steve PellegrinoAnnemann's Seven Keys To Baldpate has been a classic effect for over 80 years. Traditionally mentalists have used one of two methods to achieve the effect. There was either a switch of the keys or a special lock. For almost as long as this effect has been available, there has been another method, often overlooked, that offers several advantages over the original.
  • There's no reason to switch the keys
  • No special locks or keys
  • No special bags

Testing the Connection by Steve PellegrinoAn effect limited only by your imagination. Included with the routine are three routine theme possibilities, but you're not limited by these.

Here is one suggested routine:

You choose a spectator that you want to assist you in a demonstration. You mention that before they come up to help that you want to make sure there is a connection between the two of you. To test this connection you're going to try a quick experiment.

You display an envelope, which you state contains 5 photographs of different destinations and in a moment the spectator will choose one. Before she does, you write...

The Underground Penny Bend by Steve Pellegrino[Note that this method is not the method Richard Osterlind uses for his trademark penny bend effect.]

Coin bends have come and gone over the years. There are clever gimmicks that will allow you to bend almost any coin. Traveling around the mentalism underground for years has been a technique for bending a penny without these gimmicks, a very clean coin bend. The secret is known to a few mentalists, but has never been widely distributed. (Another description of the same method can be found in Scott Xavier Q-Bend video.)

Imagine a coin bend that doesn't require a gimmick or a switch. The Underground Penny Bend will allow you to take a penny from the handful of change a spectator holds out in their hand, have it...

The Open Billet Box: Q&A Edition by Steve PellegrinoThe original Open Billet Box has been a big success for professional mentalists who have added the prop to their acts. Almost from the beginning people were asking for a way to do a thought reading/Q&A-style presentation with the prop. Over several months of development, Steve has developed a clever solution that builds on the original Open Billet Box gimmick.

Here's what you can do with this new version:

On slips of paper the audience writes any questions or personal information they want to concentrate on. The papers are collected in a box and then dumped into a clear bowl on the other side of the stage. The mentalist...

Approaching the Straightjacket by Steve PellegrinoSteve Pellegrino has been escaping from Straitjackets for over 30 years. Early on when he was performing in Las Vegas he discovered a presentational strategy that elevates the standard "look what I can do" routine, that everyone does, into something the audience is genuinely invested in. Steve calls the Straitjacket escape his bread and butter routine because he's earned more money using this presentation than any other routine in his show.

Features:

  • A unique presentation that sets the tone for the routine.
  • Get the audience emotionally invested in the outcome of the escape.
  • Learn how...

Now Steve Pellegrino has created a new billet box designed for more intimate performances using a different method.

This new design uses a different box and can comfortably hold approximately 60 billets, 30 audience billets and 30 switch billets.
