Larry Brodahl

(16 August, 1954 - )

Born in South Dakota, but raised in Iowa. Started in magic at the age of 5 when a neighbor borrowed a magic book from the public library and needed an assistant. He didn't actually see a live magician until late 1960's. He performed closeup for a living during the late 1970's in the Omaha Nebraska area after serving in the Air Force. He's contributed material to John Novak's Escape magazine but has kept a low profile other than that. He specializes in banquet performances and has invented/improved several tricks such as Brody's Choker, Solution 6 and VANCAN. He has served as the President of the Omaha Magical Society and has lectured to several magic clubs in the MidWest. Currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska with his wife and 2 dogs.

Scripted #28: Lassoing a Card by Larry Brodahl

How to lasso a chosen card. Complete methodology as well as script and performance video included. Full performance rights allowed.

It is a version that makes sense. The magician explains that as a child at summer vacation, he learned how to lasso mosquitoes, and he got so good at it, that he learned to actually snap the knot for the lasso onto the rope mid-air. And he thought he'd turn that skill into a trick.

The magician has a card selected. This card is returned to the deck and shuffled by the spectator. After some byplay, the magician drops the cards into a paper bag, puts one end...

Scripted #25: Hofzinser Card by Larry Brodahl

The Hofzinser gimmick is an odd gimmick that has limited usage. But with a little analysis and some scripting you can make an effect that, while not magic, is still entertaining.

The Hofzinser card is a gimmick, not a trick. So what can you do with it. Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write a script that entertains even though it doesn't fool anyone. And it gives the spectators the feeling that they're seeing something from the crooked gamblers handbook. It even allows the spectators to examine the card without fear of the card being damaged.

Scripted #22: vanishing figure 8 knot by Larry Brodahl

How to tie a vanishing figure 8 knot and a script that makes the process more enjoyable and entertaining.

Everyone probably knows how to vanish an overhand knot, or even a Chefalo knot. But how many know how to vanish a figure 8 knot?

How to tie a true figure 8 knot as well as the false figure 8 knot are both shown and are virtually identical. The script provided shows how it can stand on it's own, but it would also fit nicely into a routine with knots. An audience member can even help you tie the knot, and they'll be none the wiser.

Best of all, it's free.

Scripted #21: Add a Number by Larry Brodahl

A routine and script that (with an assist from Mel Mellers), transforms a rather dry piece of mentalism into a fun and entertaining piece of magic.

The plot of the Add-A-Number effect doesn't lend itself to the magical performer, as the audience knows that they're watching tricks, not psychic phenomenon, which means that the presentation of "seeing the future" isn't as effective as it could be.

Plus, the method is closely tied to the revelation. How could you predict a number unless you somehow knew what everyone would write or you switched the numbers?

This script - with a huge...

3 scripts - 3 different effects - 2 impromptu - for all performing venues. A fun exploration of the GILBREATH principle that not only entertains, but also hides the methodology.

For all performing venues.

Most mathematical tricks suffer from a multitude of challenges, and the Gilbreath principle is no different.

Issues include:

  • why you can't examine the deck/packet
  • why the cards aren't shuffled
  • what the point of the trick is
  • how to hide when the cards change columns

A parlor or stage trick with a single method, but two vastly different scripts using totally different props. Fun and fooling.

Two tricks in one. Each with nearly identical handling but widely different effects.

In ZODIAC, you show a spectator pictures, one at a time, letting the spectator say "stop" whenever they wish. Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message hanging in full view of the audience.

In MOM'S FAVORITE, you show the spectators playing cards, one at a time, again letting a spectator say "stop". Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message...

Scripted #15: cut and restored ribbon by Larry Brodahl

A free e-manuscript that explores an age old method to show the power of scripting and analysis.

A trick that you can keep in your act for those days where you need just a couple of minutes more material.

Scripted #14: The Penrose Knot by Larry Brodahl

The Penrose knot has never been clearly explained until now. A strange effect that is not only made fun by the supplied script, but an "in the hands" tying method is revealed.

The magician ties a rope into a chain of 30 knots. Each knot appears identical.

The spectator grabs one of the knots. The magician now pulls on the ends of the rope, and every knot dissolves - except - the knot the spectator selected. That knot proves to be a common overhand knot.

The Penrose knot was published in Karl Fulves' Self Working Rope Tricks, but the description was less-than-clear, and the effect is quite strange. ...

Scripted #13: The Dictionary Trick by Larry Brodahl

Parlor and stage magic updated. Includes a version of the 6 Card Repeat that has an actual climax as well as a Vanishing Candle you can perform within inches of the audience.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. And explaining why someone is picking a word from a dictionary so that you can read their mind is - at best - difficult.

Well, the author of How To Write A Script used his methodology to write a script that successfully explains - and conceals the secret - to performing the dictionary test. He even explains the method he used to gaff the dictionary...

A script and performance video that is based on the work of Ron Wilson and makes the Color Changing Silks a practical and mysterious trick, loaded with laughs.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts – of any sort. And the color changing silks, using the hand dye tube, makes it even more intimidating since there are multiple steals, hand to hand transfers to make, etc. All without getting caught!

But, coming up with a script that makes sense of the handling, preserves the mystery, gets laughs, and is a perfect opener...well, that's really difficult. ...

One 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.
