To mark one year of doing my mentalism act at open mics I decided to do another performance of my very first routine – ESP Triple Play (inspired by Max Maven’s “Psiangle”). When I started out last October, I was very stilted and awkward. I wanted to be the scholarly, serious psychic, and it really hurt my performance. Doing these sessions over the last year have shown me that more warmth and humor play a great role in building a stronger rapport with the audience. I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’m happy with my progress.
