I was looking over some Bizarre Magic effects on here and they seem amazing. I don't like when they get to the darker side but to each its own. Anyway, I am looking for a Bizarre effect no sleight hand that will have a story and effect that will leave the SPEC speechless. Can someone give me some ideas please?

Check out the Bizarre Bazaar column by Peter Marucci (hey! that's me!) on the e-zine Visions (www.online-visions.com)
Not only do I have several routines there that use no sleight of hand but also, if the dark side bothers you, a couple of comedy bizarre routines (if you can imagine!).
cheers,

And you can take a look at
http://thelearnedpig.com.pa/magos/poinc/index.html
It's the Gene Poinc website where you will find dozens of ideas.

If you can't log to this address, then you will probably have to register to the Learned Pig Project, another very good website where you will also found very good things.

Hi skitch...
If you are looking for "something special"...then look no more...

Having talked about the presence of spirits, the mentalist proves the phenomenon by the spectator receiving ghostly taps whilst the performer stands at the other side of the room and taps another. That's right, the seated spectator actually feels two solid taps although no-one is near him, proving beyond all doubt spirit's exist!

A Steve (Banachek) Shaw classic...(a member of this site).

I have no commercial interest in this effect, or indeed have the privilege of knowing him, but I can tell you, it is money WELL spent!

As used by a UK leading tv mentalist Derren Brown...and of course Steve Shaw himself!

Check steve shaw's site at:

- kind regards, wulfie

PK Touches is excellent... but you need Luke Jermay's follow-up in order to make it KILLER!

I started doing this bit a few months ago and, like just about everything of Steve's I've done... it's one of those things that leaves people speachless.

As the opening to a "stage act" or something, I don't recommend it however... I'd lean more along the lines of some of Peter's, Ed Solomon or Gene Poinc's material.

Another cool bit, if you are doing a Reading type demo... is a Jim Magus routine in which a Rune stone ends up bleeding all over the specs hand... forget the name of it, but it is a very cool "ghost story" type bit.

The PK touch effect sounds killer and I'm going to order it. Where can I find out more about Luke Jermay's follow-on to this. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with it.

Can this be done close up or only on stage?

I, too, like PK Touches. Is Luke Jermay's follow up commercially avaiable? If so, where? Luke seems to be a very clever guy.

Probably not for your purposes, Skitch, since it requires some movement between one spectator and another.

It needs you to set up the position of the spectator that feel the touch.So you can't do it if you have pre-sitted people.

I have just gone through this old thread, and am intrigued by the reference to Luke Jermay's follow-up to Psychokinetic Touches. Would somebody care to describe Luke Jermay's effect.

Thanks in advance!

HI, I am thinking of purchasing Psychokinetic touches and I was wondering...
Does it actually require to spectators taking part or is it possible to do it with less (or more) people involved? Smile

Yes, you need a minimum of two people.

And a small audience is preferred.

Lukes adaption is really cool...a definate if you are going to perform PK TOUCHES. Basically the same effect but the other person feels taps on their foot....even more bizzarre as you "obviously" never tap them... Smile Another version which I tend to use now aswell is cose up aswell. Only 1 spec, they feel taps on their hand though everyone aggrees that you never touhed the hand, youjust make tapping gestures above it. I think this was also performed on Derren Browns latest series if my sources are correct! lol.

On peter Marucci's post, there is some really awesome stuff at Visions. There is one really fun one that uses a voodoo motif with a deck of cards. it's at online-visions.com

Thanks Tropicalpenquin that is my effect "Voodoo Boy". It is very easy to do and requires almost no sleight of hand if you can riffle cards you can do it.
