Hello

Ive been into mentalist for a long time about 7 years (which is long to say I'm only 17). Ive been reading the Café for a long while but always been intimidated to post (I don't know why). I was wondering if anyone knew of any hidden gems that I have missed. The mentalist I am into is very direct but very powerful and hopefully emotionally involving for the audience.

Thank you, all the best
Tyler

Welcome Tyler97,

Your question would be better posed in the "Penny for Your Thoughts" forum where the mental types hang out.

It may help if you give them some idea of your repertoire or you'll get a lot of advice you're already using.

Good luck in your quest.

Tyler, Hi. In addition to posting where Mary suggested, you might want to do a search for "favorite mentalism". I personally use google or yahoo search instead of the café search feature. for some reason, it seems to pull up better results. There are so many good mentalism props and routines.

I would like to share something that I recently got that I'm really liking: Sheer Luck by Shawn Farquhar. One of the reasons I really like it is because a lot of mentalism is "heavy" and can be somewhat "somber". Sheer Luck is sort of the mentalism version of the paper napkins over the shoulder. It adds a lot of levity as the audience is in on the "joke" and at the end, it turns out to be very magical.

Welcome to the café!
