This is a very clever routine. Stefan has created a very devious way of swapping one thought for another in full view of the audience.

Stefan easily walks you through the basic procedure and then later in the booklet supplies you with many more ideas for presentations.

I particularly enjoyed his ending kicker, which I am sure will knock the breath out of an audience. You just won't see it coming.

I like the envelope in a glass. It adds a certain elegance to the performance, especially in a smaller stand up show. The large box hanging from the ceiling can seem a bit contrived in those smaller venues.

There is really nothing difficult about his method, its just deadly clever. Stephan has spelled it all out for you in a nicely written 42 page pamphlet.

Read Stefan's write up about this trick. It is all true. I tried to think how this would be possible . . . couldn't do it. Then I read the booklet and laughed. Not only is the method clever but the motivation for the actions as well.

Very Good.

Manufacturer's Description:

An impossible prediction effect

A clear wine glass is seen on a table center stage, containing a black envelope with a prediction. The spectators are asked to concentrate on a single thought, write it down on a card and seal it in an opaque envelope. At your command, they all throw their envelopes onto the stage. A random spectator selects any one of the envelopes (again: NO force!). Let's assume the thought inside reads "ICECREAM". She removes the prediction from the glass and opens it. She reads the prediction out loud: it matches the freely selected thought!

Now for the FINAL kicker: The lady is asked to open up the crumpled paper ball that was used to randomly selected her as a volunteer. It reads: "Tonight, a beautiful lady called Annie will thing of ICECREAM!"

  • The spectator is randomly selected
  • No switch of the paper ball
  • No stooges
  • No secret Assistants
  • No pre-show
  • No fumbling
  • No sleeving
  • No electronics
  • They can really write down any thought
  • The other envelopes all contain different words
  • Spectator opens and reads the prediction herself
  • Prediction and envelope, both are completely unprepared
