Commercial Gems Volume 2 by Mel Mellers

Three more performance pieces designed with maximum entertainment in mind. Each effect includes sample scripts, handling's, and the all important presentational hooks with the emphasize on comedy.


Cards are shown portraying various items a person may have in their pockets such as, keys, pills, spectacles, etc. The performer invites the spectator to place various cards in their pocket (doesn't have to be pocket). Using x-ray vision (can place some x-ray specs on) the magician correctly identifies the items and the pockets.


A unique and original method for finding a card with a knife with the presentational theme of 'knife throwing'. The method is a real foolery and uses an ordinary deck of cards and no force. The card can be signed. You can gimmick and un-gimmick the knife in less than 1 minute. Comes with the handling and sample script as performed by Mel Mellers.


A comedy variation of the classic 'Tossed out Deck'. Member of the audience peek at a card in the deck as you ask them to stand. You instruct them to sit down when they hear something relevant. The performer is now able to reveal not only the card but dates, names, places and some funny comedy observations. Every aspect of this unique presentation is covered include the script, gags, method and presentation.

This booklet has one problem. There's so much good thinking in it.

The POCKET POWER is so stupidly clean and clever it almost makes you just blow past it. As I've said before, I read Mr. Mellers' to get ideas on HOW to think, not what. And this trick isn't new. But the premise is, and it makes great sense.

#2 in the booklet is the BREAD KNIFE CARD STAB...and much as it kills me to say this, "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS!". It's a brilliant idea. A super easy way to do a knife stab. And he gives you an excellent reason to DO the knife stab. His supplied script gives you enough info to see which way to go without giving you a complete script to just copy.

#3 TOSSED OUT DECK - with some clever handling twists, and VERY clever presentational twists that really make this look like a fun trick to do.
