As A Feature In Your

To prepare, write the xrord 'odd' on a business card and place the card in one of the compartments. Seal this end with masking tape and also place a piece of tape around the ccnter. Leave the other (empty) c: 1 open.

At the opening of your act tell the spectators that you are going to make a prediction but that you will leave the subject of the prediction up to them. State that you could predict how much money one of them has in his pockets, the license number of someone's car, the phone number of one of the spectators, or whether a certain person's social security number ends in an odd or an even number. Actually, this is just 'idle talk' to give them the idea that you could predict ANYTHING. You force the selection of whether a certain person's social security number ends in an odd or an even number. You can use any of your favorite forces for this.

After-the prediction lias been 'chosen' you take a blank business card and write the word 'Even' on it and, without showing it, place it in the open compartment of the cards saying, "I will seal my prediction between these two cards and let you hold them until the end of the show when we will have it verified. Again, be very careful to remember which end contains the odd prediction and which end has the even prediction. Two spectators are then asked to sign the tape seals at each end of the cards and the cards are then given to them to hold. At the end of your act you have the prediction openedr and verified as described above. First you have the chosen spectator read his social security number aloud and then have the appropriate spectator open the prediction and read it aloud.
