Hello!

I've been wondering recently about tricks that require no props- beyond mentalism and the ever-famous hey-look-I-can-pull-off-my-fingers. I don't entirely know if this is the right spot on the Café to ask this, but do you all know of any books or any specific tricks that do not use outside props or your hands?

Thank you very much,

-Nate

There's always the classic arm twist trick. I know there's Dis Jointed by Joe Russell.

You could also do a Balducci levitation.

See now, that's a tricky question because most of the "body magic" I know of typically falls into the category of either visual gags or propless mentalism. PK Touches is what came to mind first, but that's mentalism. Finger-through-ear or nose/cheek came second, but that's a visual gag. Breaking Point by Johannes Mengel, visual gag with hands. Fracture by Joe Rindfleisch, visual hand gag... so honestly I would be interested to see some other responses myself!
