Why The Stranger?

Any Situation or Audience
"The Stranger" can be performed for audiences of any size from strolling and close-up gigs to large stage magic shows. No matter how many people you perform it for, this will undoubtedly get one of the biggest reactions in your whole show.

A Truly Random Phone Number
The dialed number is truly constructed at random. No forces needed. The spectator can even press the numbers and place the call themselves.

Built-in Convincers
Every aspect of this app has been thought out to make it as convincing as possible. You'll even learn how to make secret "mistakes", such as reaching a disconnected number or voicemail before finally connecting to your stranger.

Hidden Technology
Unlike many phone magic tricks, "The Stranger" takes all emphasis away from the phone itself. It feels incredibly organic. The only reason your phone even comes into play is to make the call.

No Pre-Show
Watch the full performance above. Your performance will work exactly the same. There is nothing to prepare. A card is selected live, a random phone number is dialed and the stranger on the other end reveals the information.

No Coding or Forces
Everything is handled before the call is made. You won't need to do any verbal "Phone-a-Wizard"-style coding once connected to your stranger. In fact, your volunteer can lead the conversation with the "stranger."

**Real Calls and Facetimes With No Cell Reception (iPhone Only) **
"The Stranger" uses Wi-Fi calling so you can place a real call to anyone on iPhone with no cell reception. You can even FaceTime them!
