Hidden Gem 5

"Troika Twist" by Ian Rowland

Acting, Lying & Enjoying It, page 24

Rowland’s mentalism creations remind me of Jimmy Carr’s jokes: as well as being hugely entertaining they are very clever. This double layer of inventiveness makes Rowland’s material a treat to perform or watch. This incredible three-way coincidence effect is a perfect example, where a prediction is hidden in plain sight all along. And the theme of the effect is entirely customisable, so you can be really amazing and clever, in any subject! This is a fully-developed stand-up effect that can go into your show right now.
