Dorny's Comedy Blackouts by Werner C. (Dorny) Dornfeld/Dornfield

The only ebook of it's kind! A great collection of comedy blackouts for magicians and others, to add variety and spice to shows. A "Blackout" is a quick bit of stage business, usually verbal, that ends in a snappy punch line on which (if possible) the lights go out.

These are all audience tested, guaranteed laughs. Valuable for use between other acts on any kind of show. Adds comedy, bulk and novelty to any programs, provides necessary time for the next act to get ready, etc. For school work or adults.
