Impossible Envelope (Gimmick and DVD) Review

Paul Stockman's IMPOSSIBLE ENVELOPE allows you to do a prediction in a nest of envelopes. It's a very simple idea and if you've wanted to do a Malloy Master Prediction System ending without spending $3000.00, then this may be for you.

Essentially what happens is that the audience is asked to name some objects or places in the style of a Q&A routine. These are noted by the performer on a notepad. That same information gets loaded into the nest of envelopes right out in the open, which you can reveal immediately or much later in your show.

I thought Mr. Stockman and Mr. Nardi did a great job of going through the construction of the gimmick. What I would have liked to have seen is Mr. Stockman doing this in front of a real audience. I love it when creators really sell the idea and convince me to go out do a routine, either through the energy of a live performance or with natural enthusiasm during the explanation. One sees none of this on this very dry DVD.

But at this price, it's a clever idea that I'm sure many will find a use for.

Manufacturer's Description:

Direct from the professional repertoire of Paul Stockman, the "Impossible Envelope" is an innovative new prediction effect that can be used for stage or close up work.

Confabulation, multiple outs, publicity stunts and headline predictions are just a few of the effects possible with this unique take on the "prediction chest" plot. Paul's version is aimed at the working pro that wants to achieve the same with everyday looking objects.

With a load so quick and easy that it feels almost automatic, the "Impossible Envelope" will open up a wealth of possibilities for the creative modern performer; your mind will be filled with endless possibilities.

Please note that there is some construction required with the IMPOSSIBLE ENVELOPE but it is thoroughly explained on the tutorial DVD.
