For the busy entertainer we created this 2.0 version with a different headline than we used for STOP the PRESS fist edition. (First edition currently sold out)
Now you can do the same trick with a different outcome, very convincing if you have to do 2 shows in a row and might have some people in the audience that have seen you already doing this effect.
This is Stop the Press, a headline prediction with a supermarket tabloid like the Globe, or the National Enquirer.
You hand a sealed envelope, containing a prediction, to a bystander. A page from the tabloid is torn into pieces and a spectator selects one of the pieces. Headlines on other pieces are shown all different. The spectator gets to choose a headline from either side of the piece they chose. Your prediction is opened and proved correct.
It's a great audience participation piece, and an excellent medium for topical humor. It's at home in the largest of theaters yet plays perfectly in even the most intimate of close-up settings.
Need I add that it pack small play big, easy to reset, and the effect? Well the effect on an audience is remarkable. Al Koran closed with it, and it's been used by such notables as Dunninger, David Berglas, and Max Maven.
No complicated gimmicks, sleights, or calculations involved.
