It was way crowded Thursday night. I could not get into the palace. Kenner was great. I liked the gag with the velcro suit. He might consider wearing a cup though.

If you spray out high over the audience with a wide sweeping arc I doubt that it would make much of a mess. The higher you spray the more the string will tend to dry out and harden before it lands on expensive clothing.

Re: What is your favorite mentalism effect?

I really like Bob Cassidys 4th dimensional telepathy routine. Theres plenty of opportunity for some cold reading and some laughs. The method is simple and direct. I do find however that some people are afraid to lick the envelope flaps themselves. Still working on my swine flu jokes.
