"Chris is the real deal. Original presentations that will grab your audiences and not let go. Highly recommended." Bob Cassidy
Chris Rawlins is an emerging voice in the field of mentalism. His no-nonsense, direct approach to mindreading is at once realistic and utterly amazing. On this DVD—his first—he shares seven of his most coveted original creations. You'll learn "Hack," the fairest newspaper test we've seen, "Lucky Lottery," a streamlined and practical lottery prediction effect, "Flutter," a tremendous thought-of name revelation effect, and much more.
This is an evening parlor mentalism performance where you get to see Mr. Rawlins work the room, define his character, and amaze a room full of people with his polished brand of mentalism. You'll learn:
Hack: Involve everyone in your audience with this clean, easy, and astonishing newspaper test.
Credit Guard: A high-stakes yet playful mentalism "game" in which you correctly determine where a spectators credit card is. You end with a hands-off revelation of someone's credit card info, yet you never touch or see their card.
Lucky Lottery: Six number are called at random by the audience. You then reveal the selected numbers printed upon a real, genuine lottery ticket, inside an envelope, inside your pocket.
Flutter: You reveal a thought in a playful and interesting way, that gives both the audience and spectator moments of amazement.
E-Numbers: You demonstrate super-human taste buds by recalling the exact combination of candies that have been created by your spectators. A Little Lead In - A moment to add texture to your show.
Drop Card: A spectator finds another spectator's thought of playing card, while their eyes are closed.
"A fantastic collection of workable material that you can perform as is or add your own style too." Chris Cox
"Chris Rawlins has released a very interesting DVD set for the Modern Mentalist. Chris is a charming performer, and his effects are clear and to the point.

Graham Jolley
"Chris Rawlins’ new DVD set is full of practical material that will delight all performers of contemporary mentalism.
