I do a traditional envelope/billet reading routine.

The inspiration for this trick was me wanting to do a routine where all the props are completely examinable from the start, demonstrating that there’s nothing fishy or gimmicked about them and making the revelation more impressive. It was fitting that Anthony was there to be my participant since he’s got a bit of a reputation for looking at the props while I’m doing my set. I know he’s not doing it to mess me up; it’s just natural curiosity. So I had to take the opportunity to challenge him, even though he did try to burn me during the set. But it worked out well, and I think our banter helped drive the routine.

The David Copperfield joke at the start probably wasn’t the best, but I still felt I had to address the issue.
