I wonder if Larry David is also into mentalism?

Y'know - Alexander should have tried to create a bumbling mentalist character for a TV show - sort of like the Magician (Bill Bixby) meets Curb your Enthusiasm - that might have been crazy

That's a funny idea; imagine George Costanza as a Kreskin-like character. Despite his best efforts, he still manages to solve the crime by the end of the show!

See ya!

"Good." "Is it a black card?" "I knew that." etc. At the end, she called out the name of her card, and he revealed the reason for the mute presentation - in his mouth was a folded up card that matched hers.


I'm happy to say that this is an effect of mine called The Silent Treatment. Whether you think Jason should or shouldn't be doing mentalism, at least he has good taste in his choice of material Smile

Oh, thank you! I recognized the effect by its description, but had totally forgotten the name of it.

Thanks, Jon...I was wondering where this effect came from. You'll be happy to know he presented it well.

Well, gee, I started the thread (to which this is your first contribution)and followed up twice, including answering a question about the material Jason used. If I'd known you'd miss me so much in the day and a half I was absent from this thread, I wouldn't have been gone so long. Sorry about that. I kinda thought that if I sparked a discussion among people who either A) knew about, or B) were interested in Jason's interest in mentalism, the thread might sort of take care of itself. Seemed to be doing ok, but apparently my absence Saturday may have been distressing.

Not distressing my friend, but the flaming tone fo your first "elite" inquiry had the all too familiar whiff of a winge/moan/and hit and run event.

I'm still wondering why you felt compeled to slag off Alexander in the first place..

Too much time on your hands perhaps?

Just wondering.
Good Thoughts.

Excuse me if I'm misunderstanding some cross-country slang, but I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "slag off" or "flaming." For that matter, what's with the "moaning"? I posted because I didn't know that Jason Alexander did mentalism, I thought he did a great set, and I wondered how many others were aware of it. I could be confused, because I don't know what "slag off" means, but it sounds derogatory, when I think it's very clear that my posts are quite complimentary toward him. He did a great act, and I thought it was neat that he's a mentalist, also.

If you have that much of an issue with a post under the mentalism topic that says, essentially, "Hey, here's a guy most of us are familiar with, but did you also know he's a mentalist, and a good one?" then it's probably you who has too much time on his hands.

Here's a review from Wayne Kawamoto on one of the performances on the night I caught him.

Mindguy, are ye goin' batty? Can you point out where LobowolfXXX derided Jason? He started and maintained the thread with nothing but admiration. I think you are referring to "magician 4," who hurled an absurd insult and left.

Jason Alexander is also a big supporter and friend of Penn & Teller's - he's been to a million of their performances and supposedly cries everytime Teller performs his routine where he cuts the sillhouette of a rose, and the actual petals fall off.

He's a consummate show-man, magician, mentalist, comedian, actor, singer, etc. Some people are just talented in the field of the arts, and I don't see any reason why they should extend their creative talents to all aspects of it.

I assume you mean you don't see any reason why they SHOULDN'T, in which case I agree wholeheartedly. His was one of the best mentalism acts I've seen at the Castle.
