The Grand Opening Voodoo

After your prefatory remarks, you begin the show. The first effect is accomplished with a swami gimmick. Have the Swami gimmick in position on your thumb, and bring out your wallet. Open it to flash the notepad, and remark that you have recorded a prediction that is relevant to the future actions of a spectator.

"Our first experiment deals with the art of voodoo, which is the theory that if you cause harm to a doll representing a certain person, the injury is felt by the person himself. We need to select a wronged party, who will in turn select an appropriate victim." Point to a woman and ask her to stand up. "Hello. What's your name?"

"Jane," she answers.

"Hi Jane. Jane, will you do me a favor? I'd like you to think of somebody you haven't thought about in a long time. This should be a man—but not just any man. This should be an ex-boyfriend or husband, someone who really did you wrong. Does someone enter your mind? Can you do this? "

"I sure can. My ex-husband was a jerk."

"I'll just bet he was. Here's your chance at payback. Imagine that you have a Voodoo doll of this person, and you also have a sharp pin. Now, think about the first place you would want to stab this person with the pin. "

"Now, since this is a family show, remove the pin and concentrate on the second place you would stab the voodoo doll of the person. " This always gets a laugh, believe it or not. "Now tell us, where did you stick your ex?"

"In the right hand."

"Thank you, Jane. Would you come up here and look at the note I made a few minutes ago?"

She does, and reveals that you correctly predicted the spot where she stuck her ex.
