I want to use a Stockbroker routine called "Star Struck" and need a segue into something that would logically follow.

The basic idea of Star Struck is you ask for a guest autograph pretending they are someone famous. After they sign your business card it reads as an I.O.U. for $1000. Fun, simple, and a great icebreaker.

I am looking for a transition piece or a way to "cash in" their card, i.e. change it into a dollar bill or something like this.

Any ideas ? References. new gimmicks?

Thanks in advance. --- Nicodemus

You could "file" it for future reference in a Himber wallet. Then, a few seconds later, re-open the wallet and find that the I.O.U. has been "cashed" and there is a thousand-dollar bill in there.
The bill is fake (naturally) with your business info on the back. Give it to the spectator as a souvenir.

Funny you should mention the Himber. I was just playing around with a Showcase Walet from the Ammar Business Card DVD.
Trying to think of a good presentation and logic for the change. Ideally I would like to change his card into money or else cancel his debt with a vanish of the his writing.
The other side is reset. I need something that does not require me "go to the bathroom" :-{ every five minutes.
Or maybe a way he can win his I.O.U. back ?

Any other thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks.

Have a look at "Simply Harkey" for a most wonderful IOU routine. It even ghas this very name: IOU.

It is really great!

You could give them a chance to win their money back by a card trick where they find someones card. Why are you wanting to cash in? If they signed the back of your business card then you have the perfect chance to give them your business card.
Nothing of the same will bring any change, take action today!
Just taking a step, is a step in the right direction because when you stop working, your dream dies.
