you give a spectator the ability to read a foreign language!
"Fantastic! The one ahead envelope ploy is very, very, very, very (did I say very?) ingenious. Lovely. Your work stands on itself and when that happens, rare..." - Banachek
This 2-DVD set contains instructional video, gimmicked post cards, gimmicked envelopes, a pdf of written instructions and over 400 jpegs of gimmicked artworks that you can print at home in a variety of sizes.
You DON'T need the original 100th Monkey to perform these effects.
Place and Thing. And Monkey.
PLUS there's a bonus effect for people who register for updates: The Murderous Monkey! The performer lays out ten cards with the words "Pick your poison" on the back. A spectator chooses one of the cards. The others are turned over to reveal each has the name of a different lethal poison. The spectator's card is turned over to reveal it has the word "Cupcake" printed on it!
"Chris Philpott has done something rather remarkable, first with Hundredth Monkey and now with Babel: he has created a new methodological principle! These effects are astoundingly good, and the method allows you complete freedom and flexibility to focus on presentation." - Joshua Jay
"I was lucky to test these wonderful tools before release and they are absolutely ingenious! Working on a cruise ship I tried Babel with people from different countries - they were so entertained that the passengers kept on talking about it all week! But my favorite is One Monkey Ahead: it opens so many possibilities that it makes you crazy! This is something that will change the way you perform this classic method forever! If you want to add strong routines that pack incredibly flat and plays huge, this is the way to go!" - Luca Volpe
"The 100th Monkey Principle as a method is so unique. It feels like gateway to a whole new world of mental effects. It's been a while since I felt this excited about a method for mentalism." - Ran Pink
"The 100th Monkey is not just a method; it's an adventure! You're going to want to run with these simian secrets." - Max Maven
