Tutu, I'm sorry no one is taking you seriously. So I'll tell you that the most important thing is your persona. Ask yourself "Am I the kind of mentalist who wears a fez or a turban?" It's also helpful to write a history for your persona. Did these powers come to me by being hit in the head? Was I dropped on my head as a baby? Did I fall down some stairs and land on my head? Was I banging my head continuously against a wall? Think seriously about what kind of head injury you got that awakened your powers. It's these kind of details that make all the difference.


Tutu responds:

So I should just use something that has happened to me many times already? (Or maybe I should just say that the secret is snorting woofle dust?)

Tutu (Tutu-Mento):

First you need to learn the art of cold reading. Heard of it? If you can't do cold reading you might as well sell your clown nose.

I'm talking about handing all the kiddies at the show cherry popsicles, ask mom and dad to turn the AC in the house way way down... and make sure everyone huddles around the festive "Tutu snow cone volcano machine" that you bring with you as part of your big show. Hey, rental rates on snow cone machines are dirt cheap Tutu Smile

You cab also segue right into a cool "blizzard" effect (ok, mental magic) by then tossing some shaved ice onto an unsuspecting dad - which should get a nice laugh from the kids!

A guy named Jerome tips the real work in one of his books - name sort of eludes me for now - was it "full contact mind reading for clowns?"

Everybody know that the true test of a mentalist is to be able to perform a two-hour show with no intermissions comprised of only 4 card tricks. Two of them can be ACAAN, and the other two can be Ambitious Card routines. It's very important you create a script and follow it closely. The more times you can say, "Now, what I want you to do..." and "Now, what I'm going to do...", the more yor audience will know your true power and abilities as a mentalist.

Q&A and book tests and predictions are just what the teenagers do in front of a brick wall wearing hoodies and ski caps. The REAL mentalists understand that card tricks are what it's all about. Another great suggestion is to spend some time giving the audience a lecture on the history of ACAAN, anything less than 30 minutes isn't enough to give them a solid background so they can really enjoy the show. Also, using a mic is not a good idea, the mentalist should be mysterious and quiet, so everyone will have to hang onto their every word. Don't forget to have the air conditioner or heater on in the background, and keep the room temperature around 87 degrees F. The combination of the warm air and white noise will keep everyone attentive throughout the whole show.

As a clown who is a mentalist, Tutu would do well to study the works of A. Robins, in particular, the train sequence.

RIP Tutu-

It is my sad duty to report that Tutu will no longer be able to respond to your posts. Due to an irresponsible suggestion he received via a personal message, Tutu decided to finish his street corner kiddie show this morning with his new version of the Human Volcano. He swallowed half a dozen Mentos followed by a liter of Diet Coke, certain that he would produce a geyser that would fill the crowd with glee.

Sadly, the resulting eruption came from all of his bodily orifices at once. The force of the combined blasts propelled him into the path of an oncoming Metro bus whose driver failed to see him because of the geysers spraying his windshield.

But at least he achieved his goal of being on TV. Film at eleven.

I have a mentalisty intuition that the spirit of Tutu will be back among us shortly, quizzing for goodies and the proper way to wrap turbans and thumb count b****ts.

Et tu, Tutu? I learned much from you my friend. Remember when I made a post to you earlier today? Before you died? Those were good times.... You had a blast performing at your very end.That will always be an inspiration to me. I will always remember you Bobo. The mentalist clown.

I expect most clowns who have a go at doing mentalism are about as successful as the mentalists queuing up to try their hand at 'comedy' in this thread.

Oooh. Zing! Pass the Ambre Solair, because you just got burned!

I'll really miss Tutu. I never met him, but I got so much out of his posts. Felt like I kinda knew him, really. Condolences to his family. A sad day for clowning, and a sad day for mentalism. Just a sad day all round really.

Gone too soon, RIP.
