BOB by Luke Jermay  


This is Luke's excellently engineered confabulation routine. This routine combines several different methods to create a rather detailed prediction effect. The routine showcases the possibility of mixing such methods as mechanical forces, psychological forces, double writing, reverse engineered predictions, planted predictions and extending predictions using 'bolstering' techniques. Within the whole routine, the performer will only need to 'double write' three times. Each of these happen under the logical 'covers' of writing another piece of information. This is also a solution to the time delay often linked with double writing, as the performer will only write a single word at any time and therefore avoid any delays.

It is assumed that if you are buying this ebook, you are at least on some level already versed with the classic 'Confabulation' routine. This assumption leads Luke to leave the choice of wallet and the style of load for the prediction to the performer. He wrote the effect description using the generic example of a wallet and an envelope.


The performer begins:

"Despite my rough exterior and prison tattoos, I have a slight confession to make. I am addicted to pulp romance novels. I love them. I especially like Susan Grant. She – as any true romance novel enthusiast can attest – is the queen of tacky romance. This one is especially good. 'Rough Love – a rouge gentleman had known stormy seas for too long' — oh it is great. I really should read this one again."

The performer places a pair of reading glasses on and begins turning the pages of the book as if reading them. After a few beats he continues:

"Now probably isn't the best time."

The performer places his glasses away with a smile and continues:

"Every night before the shows starts, I sit backstage and I read a little bit of a romance novel. I know it is embarrassing, but it is true. As I walk out onstage and look around the audience I look for one woman in the crowd who I think could be the female lead in a romance novel. However, as with all great romance novels, finding that woman is not as easy as one might think."

The performer removes an index card from his pocket and explains:

"Before the show, I let whichever romance novel I happen to be reading fall open on a page at random. I write that page number down on this index card. Every lady in the room — please think of a number. A number between 1 and 300, as this book only has 300 pages in it."

The performer pauses and catches the eye of a man in the audience and quips:

"Sir – really, I am flattered, but there is no need for you to think of a number. I just don't see you as the female lead tonight."

The performer asks a few people what number they thought of in order to show the wide selections made. The performer then continues:

"I wrote down a number on this index card. That number is between 20 – 30. Please stand if you thought of a number between 20 – 30. I wrote the number 27. Everyone please sit unless you were thinking of the number 27."

The performer walks to the lady still standing in the audience and as he talks, he hands her the romance novel.

"This evening, you are the lead lady. You will be the driving force behind our novel. However before you do make any decisions, I want to show you something I made for you."

The performer removes his wallet and opens it to display an envelope. Drawn on this envelope is a heart with an arrow running through it. The performer continues:

"Miss, what is your name?"

The spectator responds with her name and the performer removes a pen from his jacket and fills in the heart on the envelope with the spectator's name. The envelope is replaced inside the performer's wallet, which is further replaced into his jacket pocket. The performer has the spectator join him onstage and continues:

"We are going to create our very own romance novel this evening. As any Susan Grant fan would know, no love story could take place in Milwaukee or Long Island. They happen in amazing places like New York or Paris or Russia. Somewhere with a romantic vista and beautiful landmarks for the lead characters to meet and reflect in the glory of their surroundings."

The performer removes a small note pad and a pen and continues:
