Tattle Tailed - The History & Inspiration
Posted on 22 May 2014
My first commercially released effect was a marked ESP deck entitled “Beyond ESP”. From the moment they landed I have always carried two sets of the five cards in my wallet.
My all time favourite effect to perform with them was one titled “Jazz Mentalism” which was created by my very good friend Dave Humphrey. If you are not aware of this routine then I strongly urge you to pick up a copy of my Submodalities DVD from www.magicbox.uk.com which contains a detailed explanation of this.
Having performed the above effect for many years I firmly believed that I would never find anything to surpass it. Step forward around ten years and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a copy of Peter Turner’s limited edition book titled “Bigger Fish”. The very first effect in the book “Tattle Tail” made a very strong and lasting impression upon me. “Tattle Tail” is a five for five ESP match up routine which is performed between two spectators.
I was so taken with this routine that I dedicated a huge amount of time in developing my own handling for it. I’m proud to finaly present you with the fruits of this endeavour and would like to offer my sincere thanks to Pete who has allowed me to emulate the patter and presentation style of his original effect.
