This is more comedy mental magic than mentalism, but I used to do a Brainwave routine where I transmitted the reversed card whilst I juggled knives, blindfolded on a unicycle. (Oh no, not a juggler!) The concentration required to do this put me into an 'altered state'!

Does anybody else have any unusual 'combination' routines?

Regards.

Sounds like a mentalist's nightmare.

I suppose you could start with it:

"Aren't you glad you haven't come to see a juggler, or you'd have this rubbish all night" Smile

The above is all rubbish, except that which you chose to believe

AllThumbs,

You're right. It's a mentalist's nightmare, but that was my scenic route into mentalism and story-telling magic.

Incidentally, it raised disclaimer issues for me. After my Jack-of-all trades (master of none?) show, with various bits of variety and comedy mental magic, there would often be some people who would ask for readings and so on.

Follow a bit of balloon twisting with spoon bending (I was young), and some people treated me as if I was for real.

This still makes me wonder.

Regards.

I ride a mountain unicycle for exercise and people keep suggesting that I should perform magic while riding... Well, no thanks, I try to keep comedy at minimum in both my magic performance and in riding my uni. ;-) It seems I have to keep my unicycling skill a secret if I want to portray a serious character as a magical performer.

How about trying a Blindfold Unicycle Drive while doing your favorite Q & A routine? Smile
