The Receipt Test

This is the perfect follow up to "The Base Chakra Projects the Answer" routine and indeed once that routine has finished this one is already set up and its all just down to presentation.

As you may recall the volunteer who came on stage to assist early on in that routine was told to remove the receipt for the cards which were purchased that day by the theatre manager from the bag and put it into his pocket out of the way.

This means that this person now has that receipt in their pocket and you have already done all preparation necessary for this routine.

Before the show get a large sketch pad and using a pencil prepare each page of it as follows using the information which is usually printed onto receipts from large stores:

01) Onto page one put the stores name.

02) On this page put the store managers name.

03) On this page put a three line sum, the top line is the amount apparently handed over by the theatre manager to buy the cards, the second line is the amount the cards cost and the final line which is the answer is what change they got.

04) On this page put the stores VAT/SALES TAX registration number.

The pencil notes made lightly on the pad will not be visible to the audience and act as your cue of what to write down when it comes to performance time!

EFFECT

A spectator is asked if they have any shop receipts on them and then holds one in front of them whilst revealing their Navel ready for projecting thoughts to you on the stage!

Firstly you ask them to think of the store name, you write something down on a pad with a marker pen and then ask the volunteer what name they were projecting, the pad is turned around and your prediction seen to be correct.

Secondly you ask them to project the store manager's name and once again you have written it down correctly onto the pad before they say it out loud.

Thirdly they project the amount spent on that transaction, the amount tendered and the amount given in change and sure enough you have all three pieces of information correct on your pad before they have said them out loud!

Then as a stunning climax you get them to project the VAT or SALES TAX registration number and you also get this 100% correct on the pad before they shout it out loud which WILL lead to thunderous applause.
