ARTFUL MENTALISM: AN EVENING WITH BOB CASSIDY
by Bob Cassidy
On February 26th 2009 a historic event took place. Bob Cassidy gave a one-of-a-kind two hour teleseminar which was hosted by his longtime student and friend Michael Weber.
Two hours of pure Cassidy where he answered questions and spoke on a number of crucially important points on mentalism. Some of the topics discussed were:
- Persona: Selecting effects consistent with your
persona; choosing a persona; credibility; the Dr. Crow
- Rehearsing: How to practice mentalism.
- What is bad mentalism?
- Scripts versus Improvisation
- Mentalism versus Mental Magic
- Publicity stunts
- Logical disconnect: The importance of preventing the possibility for spectators to back trace the method.
- and a lot more…
Bob also explained several of the points he wanted to make on concrete examples, effects he uses or used in his professional stage program, such as his Russian Roulette routine.
Additionally to the two hour MP3 you will receive two PDFs. One is the pre-seminar lecture notes that everybody received before the seminar started. And the other is a post-seminar PDF where Bob followed up on many questions submitted by listeners.
[This event was sponsored by Tony Blake, Jerome Finley, Jheff Poncher, and Chris Wasshuber.]
