Generally speaking, I am not into, impersonal, story telling magic and especially stories that are farfetched. Since I am not a great actor, I always try to keep my presentations and stories as honest and plausible as possible. Because if I believe in what I am saying, so will my audiences. Far too often I see performers lose all credibility with their audiences because of their scripts.
Of course, there are also many great and engaging story tellers who have mastered the art… but that is not me.
Lately I have been looking at some of the dark story-based routines that are coming out to see if they are relatable and easy to present in an honest fashion. One caught my eye because the structure of the routine is easy to follow and the ending is spectacular. The theme is also similar to the many television shows and movies that revolve around serial killers which makes the story familiar and relatable to your audiences. It also uses my favorite mentalism system of ranging forces and multiple outs. I think you will like it.
A very easy, clean, direct, and impossible routine with a surprise ending.
The story revolves around a serial killer who collected personal items from the murder victims.
Your spectator is enlisted as a psychic investigator who must find the serial killer from a stack of possible suspects. The spectator’s selection is proven to be true in a surprising revelation.
Practically self-working and everything is examinable at the end.

Houdini Museum Tour: Episode Five:
This is the final episode that was shot at Roger Dreyer’s New York location. At some point in the future I plan on releasing more episodes from the New Jersey location where we can focus on specific subjects and ephemera.
This episode centers around what Houdini was most remembered for. His escapes! You will get to see tons of handcuffs and picks and the escape stories that went with them.

Stay safe, Meir
PS: Yesterday I spent the day at Houdini’s gravesite where the SAM Parent Assembly held their annual Wand Ceremony. I shot a lot of video and interviews and will likely put together a program for everyone to experience at: MagicTimes.com

This is an ideal stand-up routine with intrinsic situational comedy. Even if you are not a comedian the situational comedy that is built into the routine will always get you laughs.
