Before collecting consumed my every spare moment, I actually "specialized" in performing for women's groups. These were almost universally church groups, middle-aged to retired ladies, great gigs.
All I ever did for them was mentalism. "Comedy mentalism", and a whole lot of "fun", but the key to the mentalism was the participation of the audience. They got thoroughly involved in the act and they loved it, especially when they saw their friend's reactions as her mind was "read".
I ended with a sealed envelope prediction (mailed to the President 2 wks in advance) right out of an old MAGICK for which the kicker was the prediction of the color and stytle of Madame President's dress. Great way to exit "stage left", except that they all wanted to go to Confession by having me read their mind. <sigh>
Just writing these notes makes me want to go back to doing these gigs. All to say: mentalism really worked for me, or at least something that gets the gals involved up there with you!
