No experience or preexisting technical chops required: by the end of this workshop you will be able to switch billets (paper will be provided to get attendees started during the workshop) and perform the following three routines:
  • Billet chi (predict anything)

  • Baker's fortune² (intimate mind reading, adapted from a Rudy Hunter routine)

  • Desire for the Dead (a mix of psychometry and mind reading, adapted from a Max Maven routine)

They are all strong routines but use very few, well covered, switches: perfect to get started with billet work! More importantly, you will be given a sound base to start looking into incorporating billet effects into your repertoire.
