Shame, can't get video to play, would have liked to see this.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Looks great. Now the rest of us have to remove it from our acts for a little while.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I love it and use it.

It's great for stage.

I don't know if that would be my preferred way of presenting it with showing the spectators first but it was a good comedy bit.

Nice.

Naw.

The words used were also not the standard ones as I recall.

This should be safe to use for some time me thinks.

This could be some kind of DR.

To spectator on stage:
Can you read this, yes ot no?
Yes (= this is not a word I know but I can read the letters)

To the audience:
Can you read this?
Yes

Again to the spectator on stage:
Please do read.

For the audience this is the time he loose his ability to read.
Could be nice to convince the audience there is nothing about the card!

Nope. It's been done on TV, that means none of us should use it. We should strive to create our own routines and effects, not just copy what we see others on TV doing. Would you want someone seeing your act and saying "Oh, I saw so and so do that on tv the other night?"

One of the golden rules is that if it's on tv you are barred from ever performing it again. Smile

I love using DR to enhance effects that don't rely on DR! Smile

I m not sure if we should worry and don t use it anymore because it was done on TV.
it's presented like a funny things, a puzzle, the lack of real thinking about it and the very poor presentation ( straight outside the box with a process if we can call it a process made cry my aunt) will not be unforgettable...

Anyway the fact that this was on tv does not mean everyone saw it. Nor was their presentation special or original - it was not. It was fast and fun - and Howie found have been better prepped to try to actually pronounce the words.

I like my presentation better for me anyway... And there is not a reason in the world to not do this just because it was on AGT. It was inevitable someone would use this in the media soon. No biggee.

This product lends itself to many different presentational possibilities.

I'm opposed personally to the way they did it by telling the spectator in advance that they are going to lose an ability to speak. That creates a defensive set up. This us discussed more in other areas.

I had the pleasure of being just off stage as they filmed this and all I can say is, wait til you see the whole clip -- it was so beautifully set up, with a wonderful comedic build to joyous chaos. They really knocked it out of the park!

Thinking that because this has been done on TV it can not be done by anyone else is extremely myopic. But it will mean that fewer people will be demonstrating this great bit and that's not a bad thing...except for Chris Philpott's bank account.

I've been using it with a very different presentation and effect goal that combined with other routines it really doesn't stop me from using it..... My end purpose is not to leave them a fun feeling but more a shake up and a tinge of fear. It's a method you can use for many things - and I think his bank account might increase as the tv spot shows the thing works in real life on larger scales - IMHO
