Hello,

The description of "The Dirty Secret Club" says the performer gets five assistants on stage and a sixth to work as a "judge".
But you really need those five? The method permits less or more participants?

Thank you.

You can use as many participant as you like, all though more than two is preferred.

"Five audience members are chosen at random. They are invited to write their most closely guarded embarrassing secret on a card. The cards are collected by a sixth audience member who places them into an envelope and acts as custodian while the show continues. Eventually the performer invites the spectator to retrieve one of the cards and silently read the contents. After correctly stating the spectator's PIN number and internet password, the performer correctly divines the emabarrassing secret and invites the audience to work out whose it is by checking who is blushing."

This is a pretty full encapsulation of everything I think is wrong with modern mentalism.

I do sometimes wonder if anyone in the Internet world has ever read or studied anything.

You guys are joking about the internet password, PIN, and humiliation reveals right?

Your almost better off pantsing them. Just sayin!

No joke, that quoted text is in the ad copy, apparently.

"that quoted text is in the ad copy"

If it's in the ad copy then someone owes me a fee. Smile

Having bought the product, I wrote the text in response to another poster who asked for a description of the routines. The words are mine. I'm fairly new here and so I tried to stick to the facts and avoid personal comment. I believe the descriptions are accurate though.

I just purchased it, I'm looking forward to feeling them out. I've never done anything with mentalism, mostly just closeup, does anyone have any good suggestions for some beginner mentalism tricks, or know where I can learn the basics?

Look for Artful Mentalism Vol 2 by Bob Cassidy, if you are interested in mentalism.

My 39 Steps is FREE and you can read it at the link in my signature below.

It is a list and discussion of what I believe to be thirty-nine essential books in a mentalist's library.

Good thoughts,

Bob

I just re-read the living and dead test from this book. I REALLY like it and can see it playing VERY strongly. I like the birthday presentation personally.
