A great audience participation effect. Ideal for corporate shows and parties.
EFFECT: Several spectators are asked to think of an unusual job that they have held during their career. Another spectator thinks of an unusual occupation that he or she has never held.
The spectators write their jobs on any paper. They place their folded billets in a bowl or basket in plain sight.
The performer then reveals the strange but true occupations and identifies which of them is the false one, as well! A solid 4-6 minutes of mental fun for any act. Plays big, packs small. The gimmick (yes there is one) is actually fun to make and does the dirty work in plain sight.

Great gimmick and ideas. This will worth your money because this ebook is well written and provide more than enough photos to help you create this practical effect. B. W. McCarron's work is always top quality with the explanation.
