|For $20 bucks you get a well produced 8 page booklet with 3 routines
- Ping and Pong - Patter/Handling for Chinese Sticks
- White Lies - Patter/Handling for Mental Photography Deck
- An Englishman in New York - Patter/Stack for a Story Telling Stack (a la "Sam The Bellhop")
If you like or do any of these types of routines and you want to add a lot of sexual (sometimes graphically sexual) so called "humor" to your presentation of them, then you may like this.
As much I love Wayne Dobson, this set to me just wasn't worth the cost. First, even if the effects appealled to me more than they did, $20 is a little steep for 8 small pages. If Dobson were tipping some unbelievable secret method or idea or something then maybe, but I just don't see the value here.
Of the three, White Lies is the best, and I'd only give maybe 2 stars.
I didn't think the routines were funny or entertaining. Dobson's experience using them may say otherwise, but I personally would not buy this product. Even if you've been looking for the perfect Chinese Sticks presentation or that one special thing to make your Mental Photography routine sing, I still wouldn't recommend this.
If you want some excellent stuff for the same price from the same incredibly talent guy, the check out his book, Six Masterpieces. It's a much better deal.
Final Verdict: 1 star with a Stone Status Of Rubble.
