S.A.M. Parent Assembly #1 in New York City is delighted to host a lecture by Harvey Berg on Thursday, November 13th at 7:15pm. The lecture will be held at Mt Sinai Hospital in NYC (1425 Madison Avenue @ 98th street). The lecture is free to S.A.M. Parent Assembly #1 members; $20 to other S.A.M. members and $25 for non-members.

Harvey Berg Lecture -- Family Plot and more!

One of the effects in the lecture is called Family Plot, which Harvey performed at the S.A.M. Parent Assembly #1 October Magic-Fest Show. It fooled S.A.M. National President Ice McDonald as well as many others, including me! In brief, a fairly chosen spectator merely thinks of a card (and never mentions it - only thinks of it). The spectator takes it from a deck that was thrown to him, and hides it so that nobody else can see it. Using his own phone (Harvey never touches it), he calls Harvey's wife at home and she names the card. Harvey gives no instructions for the call, and says nothing while the call is made.

Harvey recently performed it in Las Vegas at the Mindvention Convention. It was a rousing success. Not one person figured it out and he didn't reveal the method. He doesn't ever expect anybody to figure it out, because it's based on something he unexpectedly discovered while experimenting with ways of doing this kind of effect. What he did discover was a big surprise, even to himself.

Here's your chance to be one of the first to learn Family Plot. Harvey tips it all! Family Plot has many applications beyond playing cards. It is easy to do, there are no apps or programming of the phone, the person receiving the call could be a small child, and believe it or not, the performer does not know the selected card until it's revealed to the audience by the person receiving the phone call.

There will also be other effects taught that Harvey knows you will find interesting.

Harvey Berg is a mentalist, retired architect, structural engineer, college professor, and cruciverbalist (look it up). Since entering the world of magic at the age of 62 (eighteen years ago), he has invented more than 100 original effects – some of them being regarded as the best of their kind by many mentalists and magicians.
