For those of you who use any type of p**k wallet, here's a little gem:

I'm a comedy mentalist/magician so this simple effect works for me in 2 ways:

1. it gets a laugh

2. it gives me a REASON to have someone write down a number and put it in my wallet.

Years ago, before I owned any type of p**k wallet, I did this bit (on stage) where I asked a pretty lady to write her phone number on my business card. Then I put it in my wallet and said:

"Thank you, now we can do a trick. I just wanted your phone number for after the show and I'm surprised at how easily you gave it to me.".....something like that. Then I went in to some other effect with her. That was it. No trick, just a cheap laugh.

Anyway NOW with a p**k wallet (I use the Outlaw) I can perform the SAME bit with the SAME joke and then actually REVEAL her phone number in any magical way I want to. You will get a good laugh and have a REASON for her to write a number down and put it in your wallet.

Anyway, this is just one example of using comedy as a means of motivation/misdirection. I'm sure you can think of and share many others....

Try it. You'll like it.
