Okay, Alwow. Character building and development is something I will definitely cover. Will also discuss working in casual settings.

Keep em coming!

Many thanks for asking for suggestions. I'd love to hear your...

- Thoughts on construction of a (i) cohesive, (ii) well-shaped, (iii) satisfying act?

- Thoughts on (and demonstrations of?) pre-show work and dealing with the ways it can go wrong?

I second Alwows character building. Also, what about your outlook on "sense and meaning" and making the effects personal and meaningful?

Great great great! Bob, could you give a demo of introducing some cold readings in one effect, to enhance it? I know everything you will cover will be a gem, anyway...
By the way, could you do a 5 hours lecture please? loool

Hi Bob,
I would second that. I'm interested in your thoughts on how to connect to an audience.

Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Bob,

I'd love it if you could talk about the Q&A act a bit. Not only methods, which it would be cool to see, but also more importantly how to sell the idea that you're really in their heads.

All the best,
Charles

What a treat for the festive period!

Bob, if possible could you discuss and expand upon your writings in "staging it" and performing mentalism in a stage/parlour capacity. Stage presence, holding attention, owning the stage and communicating who you are in that environment. I would find things like that fascinating

Also if possible could you explain or at least try to communicate your creative process when developing an idea. Things like "when you know enough is enough" and the routine doesn't need to be developed anymore.


Looking forward to it!

Eleven seconds, actually. Yes, I'll talk about the actual method I use- which is slightly different than has appeared in print or on my DVD. And a bit easier, too.

I second this greatly!

Also, could you share your thoughts on Billet work concepts in general? Tears vs peeks, justifications, psychology .. etc?


Cant wait, this is gonna be awesome. Probably the first time I'll be staying late to post questions Smile

As anyone who has ever seen me lecture knows, I only start with a very general outline and then just take off from there, never really knowing exactly where the lecture is going- except that it will eventually get there. Smile (I will likely drive the moderator crazy.)

I'll be talking about my classics, history, billet switches, psychology, logical disconnects etc, etc., along with anything else that occurs to me at the moment. Will probably cover quite a few things from my books, particularly The Arful Mentalism of Bob Cassidy, Volume 2: Fundamentals.

Anything special you guys would like me to talk about?
How do you feel about the use of complex electronic devices?

Mr. Cassidy,

I have been using RotWD to great effect......it is one of the finest pieces of deception that I employ. I would be curious if you routine the effect in diffrent ways, i.e. I use it as a dead or alive with multiple envelopes. Perhaps you could discuss this, however I would also be happy if this technique was never discussed again, lol!

What Looch said and
Preshow
Would be my list

This is great that not only will the legend be lecturing and anything you speak a out will be gold but even more incredible is your allowing us to influence or even directly write the lecture topics

Thank you in advance and thank you for all you have contributed to mentalism! You are an absolute inspiratation of the highest caliber

David-

Thank you. But it's not at all incredible that I'm letting you guys provide a lecture outline.

I'm just lazy. Smile

But, seriously, I don't want anyone purchasing or coming to the lecture to later say that I didn't cover something they had been hoping for. But I guarantee someone will say that anyway, and others will say I revealed too much. But either way, I can blame it all on you!
