Tickling The Mind #1 Review

Maybe I'm getting burnt out. Or maybe it's just the material that's hitting the market.

I think I'll make a new category of effect: "Nice variations on classic themes."

That's what this is. Most of the material is strong, what I might call "commercial", but mostly uninspiring… with a few notable exceptions.

First, there's that creepy clown in the menus. I hate clowns and this one's particularly scary. But at least it's a departure from over-produced stuff coming out of L&L.

I love the "Phobia" routine for needle through balloon. It's nice to see so many people taking the same boring trick an doing something cool with it.

Beyond that, I wasn't particularly inspired by anything. A few of the items were hard to differentiate from other performers' work. The rest of it was "interesting". Not revolutionary, but good.
