I do telepathy effects, prediction effects, memory effects and, occasionally, PK effects. I have never done an "envelope" effect. Envelopes are just subsidiary tools used to accomplish mentalism effects.

I do understand what you mean, but the danger in using envelopes in too many routines is that you may well end up being remembered as a guy who does "envelope effects."

Good thoughts.

An envelope trick:


Use your envelope as skate and do a 360.


;)


Try it and ask for some opinions on the audience.
don't do it if you think that is too much


Personally , I prefer to vary on props.

Seem to perform? Why add an effect at all, unless you're trying restructure your entire show...?

John Wells,

I do about three shows a week currently, however I perform in about a 200 mile radius and often in rural areas. So, I add material more often then I would like....I know its not ideal, but Im starting to make hay.
