Patter, Plots & Scripts

What you say during your performance is probably more important than what you do, except of course if you are performing a silent act. However, most magicians focus on technique. Nothing wrong about spending a lot of time on moves, but spend at least the same amount of time on honing your presentation, what you say, when you say it and how you say it.

Scripted #11: Rising Card

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #11: Rising Card by Larry BrodahlOne of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. A script that highlights the magic while still being relatable to the audience.

The effect is that the magician shuffles and then hands the spectator the deck of cards, while explaining that he's going to do a trick onehanded. The spectator HIMSELF removes one card and puts it face down on the table, and then gives the cards back to the magician. The magician fans the deck, inserts the chosen card into the middle of the deck, and then holds the deck perfectly squared in one hand.

He holds the deck...

Scripted #10: Brody's Choker

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #10: Brody's Choker by Larry BrodahlOne of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. Especially with a trick that is old and tread worn, like Grandmother's Necklace. This is a complete script and revised handling for the Grandmother's Necklace principle, including a variation in how the trick works.

The effect is that the magician, using 2 volunteers from the audience, causes 2 differently colored ropes to completely pass through the spectators' neck. (If this makes you uncomfortable, you could pass the ropes through their torso, a block of wood, a tube, etc.)

Scripted #9: Serendipity Deck

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #9: Serendipity Deck by Larry BrodahlImagine being able to control coincidence. Where the time and location of two events determines the outcome of the events. Now you can!

The magician removes a BLUE backed card from his pocket as he talks about coincidence, and how coincidence is decided by two factors: physical proximity and time. He has someone sit on the card. He then removes a RED backed deck from his pocket, and spreads the cards out front and back for the audience to see. Holding the deck in front of his face so that the audience cannot see the faces, he chooses two people that are sitting far apart to select cards....

Scripted #8: Counting on Lothar

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #8: Counting on Lothar by Larry BrodahlOne of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts – of any sort. Especially a script that has to account for dealing and counting processes, unusual display processes, and a trick that has no climax. This is a complete script and revised handling for the COUNTING ON LOTHAR trick, perhaps one of the strangest and mystifying card tricks around. Adapted from an audio presentation by Jon Racherbaumer in Genii magazine, April 2014.

The effect is that the magician – using a borrowed deck of cards - predicts the past, the present and – in this version – even predicts the future!

Patter: The Story Behind the Magic

Brian T. Lees

Patter: The Story Behind the Magic by Brian T. LeesAs magicians we do the same range of magic over and over again. What makes it different is our character, presentation and patter. We all put our own twist on the routines. Patter is the glue that identifies the magic to us personally. It is our personal signature. If we don't take time to create new or updated patter then our performance begins to sound routine or "follow the motions". This ebook identifies different types of patter, offers some suggestions and provides a few examples.
  • What's in the box
  • Purpose of patter
  • Story patter
  • Instructional patter
  • Narration patter
  • Situation patter ...

Scripted #7: Solution 6

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #7: Solution 6 by Larry BrodahlAre you looking for a methodology and script for the 6 Card Repeat that steps outside the usual plot of "I saw a guy count 1,2,3,4,5,6 cards, throw away 1,2,3 and he still had 6 cards"?

Because let's face it, the story is silly, doesn't have any spectator 'hook' nor does it have a recognizable climax beyond the weak ending of "And I still don't know how he did it."

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to adapt a script that has laughter, interests the audience, and shows just how magical this trick can be. It also uses no gaffed cards and can be done in parlor as...

Especially a routine where you have 1 or more audience members mentally select any of 4 objects and then answer 3 questions with either lies or the truth.
