What are cliches fortune tellers and psychics use?
I’m doing a little comedy piece of fortune telling and psychics and I wanted to know what some of the cliches are that they usually use when fortune telling (if they’re fakes that is). I heard one is that they always tell women that they were Cleopatra in a former life, or something like that. Do you know of any others that might be good?

They make generic statements that could apply to anyone. The Cleopatra thing is true too.

You just take the general details about humans and work it into your routine. Like it is obvious everyone has a mother and father
if the person sneezes then the psychic could say ” i feel you are coming down with a cold ”
You need ot work your props into your routine too.
Like if the person is wearing a police uniform then the psychic can say’ I get a strong vibe that you are in the police force..or i see guns around you or sirens..etc

you can do a piece where the fortune teller makes the table levitate up by a small assistant child. lol
but make the child totally viable to the crowd. Make it seem like the person that is getting “their fortune told” is buying all this, until the kid sneezes. Then have the fortune teller make up something stupid like…”oh…uh…there is so much dust in this air…says your ghost cousin Mike…*cough*cough* >_>”
