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.

  • what the point of the trick is
  • how to hide when the cards change columns
Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write 3 different scripts that successfully explains and entertains with the Gilbreath principle.

Scripted #17: Ognib

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #17: Ognib by Larry Brodahl"Ognib" is "Bingo" in reverse, is a method also known under the name "Magic Matrix" (see Martin Gardner).

A complete script, handling, and a spreadsheet calculator. Handlings included for stage, parlor and impromptu.

The magician shows a handful of printed numeric grids. The magician then has 4 spectators decide on one of the grids. Using the chosen grid, they then pick 4 numbers from the grid. The 4 numbers that were chosen - when added together - totals up to the previously predicted total.

Any number can be forced!

Scripted #16: Zodiac and Mom's Favorite

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #16: Zodiac and Mom's Favorite by Larry BrodahlFor parlor or stage

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 hanging in full view of the audience the entire show.

Two separate scripts, all pictures and predictions...

Scripted #15: cut and restored ribbon

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #15: cut and restored ribbon by Larry BrodahlOne of the joys of magic is going through old and dusty ideas and actually finding usable material. This is one of those.

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

This ebook gives you every line, joke, piece of timing, setup, move, rationale and nuance of the routine.

Scripted #14: The Penrose Knot

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #14: The Penrose Knot by Larry BrodahlThe 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.

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write a script that successfully explains and entertains with the Penrose knot. He's even worked out a "in-the-hands"...

Scripted #13: The Dictionary Trick

Scripted #13: The Dictionary Trick by Larry BrodahlOne 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 to ensure 100% success. And it takes about an hour and a pencil to do, with a total cost of less than $20.00 - including the book!

Scripted #12: Color Changing Silks

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #12: Color Changing Silks by Larry BrodahlBased on the work of Ron Wilson.

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.

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

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!

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. And you identify the truthtellers -vs- the liars, and you discern which object they were thinking of.

How do you explain to an audience, in a reasonable manner, WHY you want to test them for lying -vs- truth telling or why you're using the 4 objects that you use? Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to write a script that:
