Boudoir Bill Divination
There are dozens of bank note serial number divinations, but few have
a reason for being performed. In this exclusive, Brian Curry gives
theatrical meaning to the BOUDOIR BILL DIVINATION. It plays perfectly
with the smooth BOUDOIR BILL method. Try it and you’ll see.
Imagine you are in a restaurant, bar or pub. You announce that this
is the anniversary of an important event. You will show everyone
something they will remember for years.
After the BOUDOIR BILL preliminaries have been done and a spectator
is standing holding the borrowed bill, you say,
"Every profession has an ultimate challenge. In golf,
it's the hole in one. In math, it's memorizing the
(Side note: the math geeks in the audience like to shake their heads
in agreement to this. Silly muggles.)
"Psychics got our ultimate challenge in the late 70s.
In a brilliant move of PR, George Washington
University offered a Million Dollar Challenge: They
took 1 million one dollar bills and locked them in a
safe. They invited the top psychics of the day to
their campus. A psychic was seated in an examination
room, the researchers would open the safe and
randomly pull out one of the bills. If the psychic
could reveal the serial number on the bill, he could
keep the entire million dollars!
The challenge lasted months, but no one won the money.
In truth, almost no one stepped up to the plate to try.
Over the years, revealing a serial number became
something of an epic goal in our field.
But that’s not where the story ends.
Exactly ten years ago, on this very night, (DATE), J.
Alton West III was able to successfully reveal the
serial number from a randomly selected dollar bill.
Of course, the George Washington University challenge
was already over and he never collected a penny.
Still, in memory of that fantastic feat, I'd like to
show you how I believe he achieved this near miracle.
The story is vivid enough that the audience only remembers that a bill
was borrowed and held by the spectator. Later, upon reflection, they may
remember the effect the way it’s described in the challenge. You simply
revealed the serial number on any dollar bill! And they may remember
that you did it years before without collecting the $1,000,000!
BOUDOIR BILL DIVINATION is the perfect method for this wonderful
presentation. It’s fast, smooth and undetectable. It works impromptu
anywhere and any time. Make your announcement, get your participant,
borrow a bill and tell the story.
Brian has already used this presentation a dozen times and his
audiences LOVE it. Yours will too.
