A Set-Up With Aldo by Aldo Colombini

I am sure that we would all agree that it is the EFFECT THAT IS ALL IMPORTANT and that some of the most astounding effects in card magic can be obtained by setting up the cards in a certain order before the performance commences.

Here are five routines of Aldo which depend on set-ups.

  • CRAZY POKER: The wildest Poker demonstration ever.
  • KNOCK-OUT SPELL: Spelling procedures reveal incredible coincidences.
  • ROYAL CUTS: The four Kings and the four Aces are produced in a surprising manner.

Comedy Mind Reading Act by Rachel Colombini & Aldo Colombini

This is a serious ebook on comedy! A tremendous act that’s one scream of a laugh! Rachel and Aldo have obtained huge success with this comedy act.

Keep'em Laughing by Aldo Colombini

The success of my previous comedy books ‘almost’ forced me to collect another incredible bunch of one liners and other funny material. The best compliment I had regarding these publications came from Ed Eckl (co-publisher of Precursor magazine), who said, “In the 60’s we had Robert Orben providing comedy material, now we have Aldo Colombini.”

Robert Orben was and still is my ‘hero’ and my mentor even though we have never met; so the words assume an even greater meaning to me. Here’s the content: HILARIOUS ONE LINERS, IRONIC AND FUNNY GRAFFITI, SMART HECKLERS REMARKS, and...

Vortex: an incredible routine using two regular decks of cards by Aldo Colombini

A small ebook but what exciting contents! The routine uses just two regular decks of cards. Lewis Ganson on the pages of Magigram wrote,

“This is a really super 'Do as I do' routine. The routine starts in the classic way and then enlarges on the theme; the spectator and performer continuing to match cards from their respective decks until a whole series of apparent coincidences have occurred. The final display of matched cards is both amazing and spectacular."
The effect: A spectator freely selects a card from, say, a red-backed deck and the performer removes a card from a blue-backed deck. When turned...

Professor's Math by Aldo Colombini

Here’s a unique handling for the “Professor’s Nightmare” rope routine that you’ll use in your act.

WHAT THE AUDIENCE SEES:

The magician cuts a length of rope into three pieces of different lengths; small, medium and long. The three pieces are stretched until they appear to be all the same length. The three pieces of rope are then tied together. The knots vanish and apparently the rope is fully restored. Until now the effect is a standard one. But wait…here comes the incredible finale! One knot is magically thrown back onto the rope then jumps away leaving the rope completely...
