Jermay's QA act is the most realistic performance of mentalism in its purest form, IMO.


I agree. Luke's performance at Mindsummit two years ago was probably the best thing I've ever seen.

Also thank you, Stuart and Louigi, for your nice comments about my video.
I appreciate them very much.
All the best,
Axel


Are you saying that the Q&A act you are referring to is different than the one on Jermay's Mind that jstreiff seems to be referring to? Can you speak to what's different about it from a viewer's perspective?

Jermay's Q&A is the best thing ever.

There are many, more modern and updated versions in my volume 12 "Prop-less" mentalism of the name divination - They are a collection of my favourite effects.

I have not read this entire thread but can't believe that nobody has mentioned the Piddingtons?

We're talking about mentalism.😜👍

I think that Derren Brown made me change my path and start doing mind reading and influence, Peter Turner too, for me it was like real magic.

One effect that I loved was one from Paul Vigil where he predicted a 3 digit number, is on fool us.

For me, it could be a lot of things by Banachek and his Drawing Dupe tops the list with PK. Entertainment value of John Archer’s Blank Knight is considerably unshakable. I love it! ✨

I don't know about the best effect.
But the best one's performing for me are Derren Brown & Peter Turner for sure.
There presentations are excellent.

MAKING MENTALISM MORE IMPOSSIBLE

I have to say that it was one of two experiences. The first could have been presented as a mentalism effect but wasn't. It was around the early 1980's and I didn't even think about magic or mentalism in those days. They didn't mean anything more to me than origami or (shudder) juggling.

I was at a street performer festival and this ragged man in a cheesy costume did the Invisi*le Deck. He did it badly -- but I remember standing in the audience with my mouth open. HOW DID HE DO THAT??? I went back every day to watch him. (I wasn't stalking him...I was INVESTIGATING...ok?) I watched my pet theories get shot down one at a time. He didn't have 52 decks of cards. The volunteers weren't plants...etc. I was utterly baffled.

In the olden days there was no internet. So I wound up at a magic shop -- a middle aged man who ran a special events company -- asking the owner to sell me that trick. He refused because he said I wasn't worthy of that effect. He was right. And THAT encounter led to a relationship as close as possible to a magic mentor. I still perform the ID today. You could say that seeing that effect changed my life because it did.

The other effect left me quite literally gobsmacked. Richard Osterlind had invited me to attend his workshop in Vegas after one MindVention. So I went and he chose me as the volunteer for a CMR demonstration. First I hid an object. In a pocket. In a guy's jacket. In the middle of the room. Since I was the volunteer I KNOW I wasn't helping him and I wasn't a plant. But he took my hand in his and went RIGHT to that guy. That pocket. That object.

I was obsessed with that effect for months. I nagged Richard into doing a book about it. I worked on it for a long time and finally put it into my show.

But I still fondly remember the utter wonder the first time I saw it.

I liked it, but pretty sure got it figured out. Thanks for sharing.
