Patter theme for the “Temple of Goo”
“This is an exact replica of the TEMPLE OF GOO. You may ask, “Who was GOO?” Well, GOO was the first recognized mentalist some 5,000 years ago. This strange China man, or
He felt that this gift should be passed on so he befriended a local peasant named BAH LING, also Chinese, who spoke many dialects and spoke them well (not unlike the word in today’s language for a person who speaks many languages BAH LING WELL).
As time went on, GOO became fearful for his life, as his enemy’s would like to destroy him due to his power over them. As a religious man, he knew that the only place he was must vulnerable, was when we would pray – because people would always knows where he was. So he had this special temple designed – a place where he could be in any one of four areas and no one could know for sure. No one except for his friend, BAH.
Well, one day GOO went to his temple to pray and BAH was captured by GOO‘s enemies. BAH suffering great torture, finally gave up and disclosed where GOO was.
Now you don’t have to torture me, but through BAH, I too have learned the secrets of mentalism.
GOO is located in the section numbered . . . .
Once again, BAH FOUND GOO!
Obviously, this is Jack Ruda’s written patter lines. It can easily be altered or rewritten to conform with your own style of performance. The Buddha figurine lends itself to a potpourri of patter themes that are both mysterious and have a more mystical psychic revelation.
