Hi guys,

Enjoy this clip from an episode of my tv show, 2 weeks ago. The plot is original as far as I know and I think you'll like it (eventhough you won't understand a word We're saying...). with me you can see the talented Shimi Atias and Amir Lustig. Enjoy.

Nimrod , Israel

I didn't understand it... very cool though...
For as long as space exists,
And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
to dispel the sufferings of the world.

Very creative and a good visual piece of theater.

I expect nothing less from Nimrod. Absolutely brilliant.

I'll be happy to translate a synopsis.

Nimrod tells the audience of the symbol of the three monkeys who hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil.

He has his two guests, Shimi Atias and Amir Lustig, play the parts of the 2nd and 3rd monkeys. Amir blindfolds himself, and Shimi tapes his mouth closed.

Nimrod requests a volunteer to come up onto the stage (naturally, a good looking Israeli woman named Michal - Nimrod, introduce me to her) and has her verify that his ear covers (they look like headphones) do not admit any sound. She acknowledges this. Nimrod asks her to think of ANY card, and asks her whether anyone knows the card she chose, and whether she "SWEARS" to the viewers at home that nothing is pre-arranged and that no one knows the card, that this is true! She does. (Just try to get a volunteer to SWEAR to anything in the U.S. Smile )

Nimrod goes first - he asks her to whisper the name of the card, but without any sound produced whatsoever, and to cover her lips so that even their movement cannot be seen in order to determine the name of her card.

Nevertheless, Nimrod looks through a deck and chooses one card, asks her to name it - she says the Ace of Hearts - and Nimrod displays that the card that he isolated from the deck in his other hand - it is the Ace of Hearts!

Then Amir has her mix her card into the rest of the pack, and then place it into a device that propels the cards into the air like a card fountain. Amir reaches into the card fountain and snatches from it her card, the Ace of Hearts!

Finally, Shimi burns her card in a glass, inhales its burning vapors, and then unseals his mouth to show that in it is the Ace of Hearts - her card!

Soph - Finis - The End.

That was a great idea and perfect performance by the three of you. One of my favorites from your show.

Keep it up, Nimrod! Smile

Here's another cool effect, where he lets a woman choose a random puzzle piece from a bag, while making it obvious that all the pieces are different course. At the end he removes the cover from the table and we find there a complete puzzle with only one piece missing.. the exact one that she chose!

Nicely done!

The camera showed that she picked the same piece twice....

But I suppose most lay people wouldn't have noticed

I don't think it's the same piece, she just wanted to choose one more time after mixing all the pieces better. Kinda hard to tell from that.

But either way, I found it pretty fun to watch!
