LARRY BECKER'S MENTAL MASTERPIECES
Becker is considered one of the most creative and respected mentalists in
the field. This program features Larry performing a 40-minute show in front
of a live audience and then explaining the routines, strategies and
techniques involved. Although performed on a stage many of the routines are
suitable for parlor or close-up work.
Routines performed and explained:
H.G. Wells' Time
Machine: An audience member thinks of a year in the seventeenth century
and writes it on an envelope containing a modern coin. The coin envelope is
held by the audience member and remains in full view throughout. Upon
opening the envelope an old pirate coin is found to have the thought of date
engraved on it. Proving that the coin went back in time to the thought-of
of Body: A spectator cuts to any card, removes it and places it in his
pocket. The rest of the deck is placed back in the box and held by the
spectator. With no hesitation you can immediately name the selected card
with one-hundred percent accuracy.
Royale: One of Larry Becker's most popular and favorite routines where a
spectator randomly selects one of fifty casino chips, a handful of bills and
two playing cards. A prediction envelope, which has been in full view the
entire time, is opened and inside is predicted the name of the casino, how
much money was taken and the Blackjack hand selected by the spectator.
Killer III: A streamlined version of a marketed routine where a
thought-of card is revealed by removing a prediction from your wallet that
has been held by the spectator the entire time.
Predictable: Prior to the show a spectator is handed a prediction
envelope and the classified section of a newspaper. She is instructed to
circle any ad and initial her choice. She also removes a bill from her purse
and initials it. An audience member then selects a playing card from a jumbo
deck. In rapid succession the selection is revealed printed on the newspaper
and when the prediction envelope is opened it reveals the exact wording of
the selected classified ad and the serial number of the initialed bill.
Caper: A sealed prediction reveals the month a spectator was born and
his favorite card.
Flashback: Larry's Becker's marketed effect where a
series of mind-reading feats are performed using books and thought-of words.
