Prementaliction has been one of his opening routines for many years and now it is the perfect opening for online performances.
ROUTINE ONE: (this is how he presents it on television appearances)
This fantastic opener starts with an audience member shouting out a number between 1-100. A wallet that has been in full view is then opened revealing a ticket case. The number in the ticket case is off by 3. Then a huge envelope that was on display at the very start of the routine is opened to show that the performer had somehow predicted this ahead of time. A super clean, slick and fair looking impossible prediction.
From a technical perspective the performer is completely clean when removing the prediction from the ticket case.
A very direct routine for the virtual performer. A wallet with a target sticker on it is shown and a random audience member is asked to call out a number between 1-100. The spectator sends her number mentally to the target. The performer then opens the wallet and takes out a smaller business card wallet. A business card is taken out and the number called out by the spectator matches the prediction on the card.
NOTE: You can have a word, number etc. written on the business card. For virtual and live shows you can have several different people call out numbers. A great way to get different people involved in a routine.
