Comedy Compass Prediction by Martin’s Magic, Chuck Caputo(c. 2002) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is a significant improvement to the original version of this effect. With the help of the radio controlled stylings of Chuck Caputo, who made the radio controlled compass according to my specifications – and if I do say so myself I think its Chuck’s finest work to date, very impressive!
Effect: The Magician shows a beautiful box with an ornate brass compass freely revolving around in it. A spectator is chosen and handed the box. A framed compass with glass front is also shown. This is turned away from the audience, but the performer never goes near it again.
The Magician ensures that everyone is familiar with the points of a compass and then asks the spectator to close their eyes and turn around until they are getting dizzy. The magician then asks them to look at where the compass is pointing. They say “North.” The magician then turns over the large compass prediction that he used to explain the compass and on the back it says “The Compass will Point North!”
Naturally, the audience are not impressed. So the effect is repeated, and instead of looking at where the compass is pointing this time they look at where the spectator is pointing. It can be any of the 8 points of the compass – lets say its South East. The spectator now goes up to the compass frame and the hand is pointing to the exact direction that the spectator said.
Another entertaining mystery comes to an end.
