Regarding patter: my situation seems to be peculiar. First off, I'm ancient. If my name were on a restaurant menu followed by my age people would assume I had been discontinued. Second, I'm retired and not seeking financial support from performing. I can be paid but it's not my sole goal. I enjoy entertaining. I consider my shows Ad Hoc, one off, usually favors for friends. A large part of the audience is usually people who know me so unlikely to grant me psychic credentials. Given these starters I came up with a scenario that worked admirably for the last effort. I blamed it all on coincidence. And geriatrics. I keep forgetting things and stuff jumps into my brain to fill the empty spaces. I re-start the show half a dozen times doing 6 card repeat. I keep referring to file cards for content. Gets laughs during MOABT and gets turned around at climax by showing off with Cassidy's deck memory. Exit line, "Now if I can just remember what I did with my car keys."

That closely resembles something that I say.

Given the "coincidence" premise, of course, disqualifies me as the MASTER. BUT, I get to play the amazed one. Portrayal of "smartest guy in the room" never appealed to me.
