Shalosh : Stage Work
by Nimrod Harel
Nimrod Harel is one of the busiest mentalists in the world. He has his own television show ('Inconceivable') which has just completed its fourth season, and he performs daily before company audiences with his original mentalist show.
After his first booklet "SHALOSH" SOLD OUT!!! Now comes his second book: SHALOSH - STAGE WORK .
Limited Edition - ONLY 444 copies printed - so hurry up before there are no more. Each book is numbered!
'Fire at Will' - A clean as a whistle Russian Roulette act using a staple gun. The audience sees one gun loaded and fired and then mixed with three other guns. Then the game begins as the volunteer chooses freely which of the guns will be fired, until the last gun is proven to be the loaded gun. There are no notes, no pre-show or other lowly mental magic diversions- only the guns and free choice. No Russian roulette act with staple guns being performed today even comes close to the simplicity and perfection of this routine.
BIBLE - Anyone who performs 'Add a Number' with a calculator must see what Harel does with this classic. How can you allow the audience to do the last calculation in their heads? How can you set the entire crowd in motion? And most importantly, how can you incorporate company values into your show? This is a must for anyone working with company clients or interested in subliminal message routine themes.
Clean Game - The end of all Bank Night routines. The volunteer hides a cheque or bill inside one of five numbered envelopes. At no point does the mentalist get near the envelopes or make eye contact with them, either before or after the cheque is put in, and yet he knows which envelope is the one with the money. There are no gimmicks of any kind. Clean, clean, clean. You will laugh out loud reading about this method. A television stage performance is attached.
Bonus: For the first time, Harel reveals the secret behind his Nail Gun Routine, which was performed by Eran Raven in 'Phenomenon' and gives general permission to anyone wishing to use it in their stage or television performances. This routine is utterly devoid of gimmicks and can be executed with almost all nail guns with no preparation at all. Another example of ingenuity.
The presentation of these effects is adapted to large audiences (50-1000 people), they are incredibly practical (less than 60 second preparation time), is untainted with any mental magic and all fits inside a suitcase. This is a rare opportunity to get acquainted with one of the most successful and creative mentalists alive today. A must for any professional mentalist.
