DrIlluminatus, you reminded of a routine I do where I tell of a story of someone who says “I would do anything if someone would help me” and a mysterious man appears which they suspect is the devil. It’s loosely based on Wagers of Sin by Max Maven. I wrote up the contract before the show but only had tyvek paper laying around. I had bought it to make some practice sheets for doing bill changes with a TT. Anyways, the time came and after losing a really fair game in which they odds should be in their favor dramatically, I ask them to sign over their soul. Every time I’ve done this in a show, the participant actually signs as they think it’s still part of the show. I conclude the routine and as I was sending the first person back to the seat I remember you can’t tear tyvek. The light bulb went off and I said “Wait, I know this is for entertainment purposes but it really wouldn’t sit well with me if I sent you with a signed contract giving your soul to the devil. Just so we can both rest tonight without any guilt, tear up that contract real quick and let’s get rid of it.

Of course they try and try and can’t. It just so happened that the first person who came up when I first performed this in a show was a big guy who used to powerlift in the 300+ weight classes. He couldn’t tear it.... Once he starts struggling, everyone around started noticing and laughing. I ended with “it seems these contracts are more binding than I anticipated.”

Witch Hazel is pretty reasonable still but TKG will cost you dearly as far as I can tell. Maybe a lung or kidney plus some cash. lol

That is a great and first use of tyvek in a Bizarre routine that I have read about, a very dark routine indeed. What do you do to the tyvek to make it look like a actual paper document?

The tyvek I got is like paper. It’s really thin and pliable and the size I used was the size of common stationary paper. So I didn’t do much to it. I just folded it and put it in a black envelope that I had sealed with wax and a pentagram seal.

At an open mic night for the bar I worked at I did a version of Docc Hilford's Murder by Mail done without any acknowledgment of it being less than real black magic. And the fact is a very real person has died so the effect has a very real very finite realism to it.

This is my pick... https://www.geminiartifacts.com/products/vade-retro-satana

I own it. Love that I have it. And have yet to show it to anyone. It creeps me out that much.

Exorcism has always disturbed me. Perhaps due to my strict Catholic upbringing, or my questions regarding whether there is, or isn't an afterlife. Whatever. This effect is so powerful to me that I have yet summoned the strength to demonstrate it.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

A bullet catch that goes wrong and ends up with the blood/brains revealing the chosen card. Some performances I don't even bow, just lie there until the audience clears out.

"Memories of Emily" is the one routine I own that is so dark and disturbing I will never perform it.

I’m not aware of that one. When I went to search for it to buy only Emily V2 is available. Sounds like it’s been tamed a bit computed to V1. Bummer.

I remember that one. The guy missed the catch and the .50 caliber round split his head wide open and he lay on the stage for over 12 hours before he died. But you didn't mention the failed impale trick where the guy was skewered with thousands of bamboo shards and was begging someone to kill him because he was in so much pain. Then that other guy who repelled from the flaming helicopter and missed the pond and splattered himself into a parked vehicle.....

Oh wait! That wasn't a show, it was one of my day in my life in Vietnam 1966.... Darkest I know of. Sorry for the flashback but sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the real surreal times and manufactured ones.

Whoa - Dark indeed - I hope your memories of this Holiday time are full of warmth, happiness, love, and a little Bizarre Magic.

Got to be my names routine.
We talk about the three kinds of names people possess.
Your given name, which is how people have power over you.
Your taken name, which is how you take control of your life.
And your true name which encapsulates the very soul of your being. It requires a lifetime of study to even comprehend. Let alone put into words.

Each phase of the routine focuses on one type of name and the power it holds. We finish on the true name. Which is hard to put into words.
Instead, we pull someone's soul out of their body and let them hold it so they might further understand what they are.

Sometimes I even let them have their soul back.

I need a copy of that routine. Be my luck I'd have a spectator without a soul to snatch.
