I have not performed it in front of an audience yet; I just received the package about a week and a half ago. If I got a request to perform it next week, I could be ready as it is now with helps printed on cards, hidden on the table; it is not a very complicated routine to perform.

The bamboo screen and the “Y” on the hanky are now completed.

It is a simple mind reading routine with patter; the challenge is making Chico believable, having him look up at the right angle and timing the glances and movements.

I have added to the routine, by making Chico more aggressive in his flirting with the adult female assistant and friendlier with the younger female helpers.

I am also thinking about changing the “Y” card to a hanky of a playing card; this will enable me to make a bigger deal of the assistant picking the card and then having Chico shuffling them more flamboyantly; and it will be a change just in case some of the audience has seen the routine before; the routine has been around for fifteen years and is very popular.


The big advantage is using the video camera that Tom Dave and Philip made me buy

Hi Howie,

I think that their might be several possibilities to improve the routine and to make it your own...

I think I´ll go for it when I saved the money....

You can assemble the entire Chico routine legally yourself for about $150.00 USD
