I always carry Free Will of Order in my wallet. Yes, it technically uses props, but they are not props so much as things I carry with me every day. A dollar bill, my car keys, and my phone. It's super simple and fun to do!

You could learn suggestion, but is pretty difficult, however if you dedicate the time to it, it will give you awesome results

Obligatory Greg Wilson On the Spot plug! The man is a seemingly endless fountain of impromptu sleight of hand wisdom. If you want some anytime, anywhere sleight of mind, Marc Paul's ACTS of Mentalism lecture from Alakazam Academy has some true gems of impromptu mentalism, so worth it!

To me though, no "props" means nothing specifically "for magic." So no cards, sponges, packets, thumb-tips or other magic use items a magician would carry for the sole purpose of an effect. With that in mind, if you've learned enough (especially from the above mentioned videos) anything someone would typically carry in their pockets or purse becomes a prop. Wallets can contain so many possibilities for effects and wonders. It's good to learn a thing or two with watches. Keys have their own set of sleights. Pens and sharpies... those are the new magic wands, especially with sleeves. With a couple of business cards and a pen you should be able to bust out a more than decent mentalism act.

If you mean magic with no items whatsoever: I'll do a little faux finger-breaking, Proteus by Phedon Bilek, PK Touches, equivoque, and a bunch of other easy close-up mentalism bits.


Hope this helps!

Side note, if you managed to catch me without a coin, a pen, or a ring it's because you either waited outside the shower, found my dead body, or I'm in prison.
