REVIEW

Wow! I have never seen such poor production quality in my life! Normally, if I can understand the performance and explanation, I can deal with it if it isn't the best production.

However, the production quality of this DVD was so bad, it made learning anything from this project nearly impossible. The DVD starts with a series of never ending live performance segments, with many repeat routines, apparently taped from a camcorder in the audience without appropriate sound recording. As much as I tried, I couldn’t make out anything he was saying. One of the segments was 20 minutes, consisting of five minutes of him cleaning up his props and 15 minutes of watching people waiting for a show to start!

The second DVD launches an audio that warns you to read a PDF first. I launched the PDF and up came an explanation video. Unfortunately, this was also apparently recorded on a handheld camcorder without proper sound, and again, very difficult to make out any of what he was saying.

The third DVD had tons of files. When I launched the DVD player, it went through many files and then started playing random clips of explanations of hypnosis.

In addition, while the rights you are purchasing have confusing limitations, Mr Royle has taken the liberty of using copyrighted material in his DVD, such as performances from others, and copyrighted images such as Kermit the Frog and SpongeBob, without any mention that he has obtained permission.

This project was such a convoluted mess of stuff just thrown on DVDs with no organization and without proper video or sound.

As much as I tried, I couldn’t even find performances and explanations of some of the effects touted on the ad copy, like “one of the most impressive ACAAN routines ever!”

I didn't find anything of value on these DVDs and was completely turned off by the lack of respect he showed for the viewer who has to attempt to get through volumes of total garbage and the high probability that this DVD has broken copyright laws.

CAUTION

This is one of the worst releases I have seen.

VERDICT

I was so turned off the by whole thing. I can’t recommend this at all. Complete waste of time and money.

A Few Reviews On Contents of This Unique Package:

"Royle's ACAAN stage routine is a simple, but effective version of this normally difficult-to-execute routine. I can honestly say that in all my years, I have never seen so much quality material offered for so little money!"
Stephen Tucker Budget Magazine (IBM - British Ring)

"Royle has some unique, creative and entertaining takes on such classics as the Chair Test, ACAAN, Hoys Tossed Out Deck and the Russian Roulette Plot which are certainly worth a closer look and take them to the next level. At times he had the audience on the edge of their seats and overall this show was top notch"
Peter Turner (The Devil In Disguise, Jinxed & Bigger Fish)

"A collection sure to upset many Mentalists and Psychic Entertainers with its revelations and details!"
- Kenton Knepper

"Mr Royle's suggestions, advice and routines are solid, practical and seem to be grounded in experience! Someone who tried this approach would probably recoup their investment quite quickly!"
- Michael Close Magic Magazine Review

"Thanks for "The Holy Grail of Mentalism". There is some seriously good thinking here, I particularly like the section on how to create "real miracles". I have always believed that truly inexplicable Mentalism is only achieved by going that extra mile; you obviously believe the same"
Marc Paul - (Voted Worlds Greatest Mind Reader)

"I have always had my doubts about mixing comedy and mentalism until I watched Royle's Egg, Sausage & Peas Show. I really enjoyed your lie detector routine, I feel this always plays well with a large audience. Your psychometry routine was absolutely hilarious. I have never seen belly buttons used before to give character analyses. This is an absolute gem. The finish with the specs ring was also strong. The book test was well positioned in your show. As Cassidy says you should never open with a book test otherwise your audience will think you are using a confederate. The spectator synchronicity with cards was very baffling and the magic square made for a very strong finish. All in all a very enjoyable show."
- Roger Curzon (Creator of The Miracle Signed Card in Envelope)
