Same Trick, different headline
For the busy entertainer we created this 2.0 version with a different headline than we used for STOP the PRESS fist edition.
Now you can do the same trick with a different outcome, very convincing if you have to do 2 shows in a row and might have some people in the audience that have seen you already doing this effect.
This is Stop the Press, a headline prediction with a supermarket tabloid like the Globe, or the National Enquirer.
You hand a sealed envelope, containing a prediction, to a bystander. A page from the tabloid is torn into pieces and a spectator selects one of the pieces. Headlines on other pieces are shown all different. The spectator gets to choose a headline from either side of the piece they chose. Your prediction is opened and proved correct.
It's a great audience participation piece, and an excellent medium for topical humor. It's at home in the largest of theaters yet plays perfectly in even the most intimate of close-up settings.
Need I add that it pack small play big, easy to reset, and the effect? Well the effect on an audience is remarkable. Al Koran closed with it, and it's been used by such notables as Dunninger, David Berglas, and Max Maven.
No complicated gimmicks, sleights, or calculations involved.

This is the best headline prediction I have ever seen. I have used one method that requires you to keep track of a stack of papers and how to count a certain way. This one you just do it and concentrate on your presentation, its that easy.! Martin's stuff is the best...

Terrific routine and very easy to present in any situation. Many and varied presentations possible to suit your own style.Great reactions from the audience and the volunteer that assists in the routines. I am so pleased that Stop Press Encore has a different headline for repeat shows.
Just like all the products from Magikraft, Stop The Press is practical and for the working magician. Cheers Lindsay Gardner, Australia.
