I was pleasantly surprised to see my effect, Diminishing Returns, performed by Farrell Dillon on Masters of Illusion a week ago.

Here's the video of Farrell's performance: Farrell Dillon on Masters of Illusion

Always loved Diminishing Returns, Mike!  Still one of the most original ideas ever!

Mike, did Farrell let you know ahead of time? Or was it a complete surprise?
How cool!

I mentioned this before. When I had my shop I used to demo this all the time and no kidding would sell just about every time. It was one of my favorite tricks.

Farrell didn't let me know ahead of time. Big surprise to see him do it! Very gratifying indeed. He used the presentation pretty much as written in the instructions. 

Actually he messed up the language a bit. He should have said "By the time this card reaches the table it will be twice the size of the other cards." What he said on the show was "When this card reaches the table it will double the size of the other cards." He meant to say "... it will be twice the size of the other cards." Instead, the idea that it would double the size of the other cards means that the other cards will get twice as big!

That was cool. I purchased it when you lectured at magic inc a few years ago. Awesome.

Nice effect Mike!  So many effects I haven't seen before.  Congrats!  That must indeed be super satisfying.

Well done Mike, it must be very gratifying to see an effect you created being included on a popular show like this.  Congratulations!
