Where Nick Locapo Got It Totally Wrong


I was watching a YouTube Video of Nick Locapo showing Nick’s Top 10 Mind Reading Tricks. Sure I know he’s pimping Penguin stuff, after all, it is his job, but I still managed to learn some things. He speaks with rare credibility in this industry of shysters. Actually, I also consider him one of the top 10 performers, along with Terry Ward and Lonnie Chevrie, working today.

Anyway, he goes over 10 categories of mentalism tricks and selects products that he considers the best of breed in each. Not surprisingly, all are available at Penguin, but I have no real argument in all instances where I am aware of the product. It’s a good list. (If you want to see the list, viewing the video in the Penguin site is the best way).

No real arguments about the categories or products until we hit Peek Wallet. This one drives ol’ i/m crazy. As much as I hear about motivation, I’ve never seen any presentation that would fool anyone with even a partially functioning brain. You might as well say Here, put you information in my wallet so I can get a look at it later. Pulling out a bowling ball and have the spectator put the card in the thumb hole makes as much sense. As the Great Ballantine would say, How else?, as he took out the scissors and cut the string on his floating ball trick.
