Hi all,
my name is cello boo, I have been interested in magic since my twenties, those days have since long gone. My particular interest is in Mentalism, however for a family and friends magician, information on this subject has been hard to find at my level. I am and have been a member of a local magic club in England for the past four years. I have recentley been asked to perform for a small orchesteral group (approx 30) aged between 10 and 14 years. Although aprehensive I am looking forward to the challenge. Whilst looking on the net for suitable gags for this age range I was thrilled to find The Magic Café. So that's how I got here. Just to start off with a question any ideas out their? I hope to become an active participant in the forums and look forward to joining you all in the future. Thank you CelloBoo

Hi CelloBoo,

Welcome to the Magic Café! You may want to post your questions on mentalism on the "Penny for Your Thoughts" forum. I'm sure you'll get some help there. Good luck and visit the Café as often as you can.

First off, nice to meet you. What type of gags are you talking about? As for magic, I would reccommend some sort of trick with ropes. I have an 11 year old brother, and have seen that kids his age seem to be at the peak of their skepticism. If there is any possibility that what they saw wasn't completely what happened, they may just shrug it off since they understand that magic is just a trick. With ropes, I think that the material is something that they are very used to and that it is very visual (very little is not revealed to the audience, or at least they think). Also, I could see some possibilities of putting a mentalist spin on a cut and restored rope trick or something similar. That's about it for now.
