When I watch your specials, I always get a a very annoying feeling of impossibility. It's hard to explain. Sometimes, you get a feeling of impossibility because it's so magical. Here, that's not the case. When a cap driver forgets where the London Eye is, or a man falls asleep at the phone (sure) it just screams "stooges" to me. And it annoys me, because many magicians love you and your style and think you are the real deal. And who am I NOT to believe them.
Can you, or anyone, advise me with some literature to just give me the idea something like the things in your show CAN be done, and are not always faked.

I hope you all can understand this, never have I felt so much difficulty explaining something in English Smile

I've answered this at length elsewhere, if you can be bothered to find it. But no, no stooges. Routines like those are working with suggestibility (I started my career as a hypnotist), which is different from classic magic methods, of course.
Sorry if they're not proving much fun for you. I don't think you'll find much literature on it.

Apologies,

Try Ormand McGill, and maybe also some Erikson Books, Hypnotic Realities etc.
