Do you any of you guys use this as a closer to your stand up stuff? I think this is awesome and want to use it as a closer. I'd like to hear from anyone who's used this as a closer, how it plays that way, and any general views people have on using it as a closer - and also, any views on criteria for a closer.

Snail,

I don't do Digital Feedback but IMO it is no closer. It is nice and strong but I think it has to go in the middle of a show. My closer is most of the time a baffeling mind reading stunt. I did "Phone Psychs" from Banachek on my last show, but used a regular book instead of a phone book. I ended and the reaction of the crowd was great. It was a club and I went to my table but could hear how they still talked about the number for awhile.

Just my thoughts

Cheers,
Jarod

Snail,

I think it depends on what you mean by stand-up. If you mean in front of a larger audience, and what you might call a parlour or stage show, I always do my magazine test or something similar. If, however, you mean a close-up walk around situation, then I use Digital Feedback all the time as a closer. Either that or the Solid Ghost if there is a table available.

It all depends on whether you are working out of your pockets or out of a case.

Dear Richard and Jarod,

Thank you for your lovely responses. Richard, I'm very darn frustrated because I can't find a pencil anywhere that will do what your cross pencil does in the UK. Smile But I haven't been able to find many Cross pencils either - and I'm dying to give this test a go!
Can you tell me whether any Cross pencil will do the job. It's very hard to go into a top pen shop and start twisting their pencils around(!) I heard good suggestions about using a pencil and dipping it in glue and all sorts, but I need to try your way first.

Thanks guys, this means a lot.

Snail.

As for Digital Feedback, I will take Richard's advice from a PM and do this as my walk-around closer. It's just so killer!

Snail,

The kind of pen/pencil set you want is the Cross Classic Century set. It comes in many metals with some inexpensive and some very expensive. Here is the site where you can see them.

If you search "Cross Pens" on the Internet, you will find many companies you can order them from.
