Amusing and entertaining script on the classic 4 Bean routine. Full performance rights included.

The 4 Bean trick is a classic, but the moves and the motivation are odd and unexplained.

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write a funny script where you know why the trick is being done and why the handling looks the way it does. And the handling ends up being pretty simple.

This ebook gives you every line, joke, piece of timing, setup and nuance of the routine. The ebook also takes you through an overview of some of the steps of script writing and routine design...

Real lie detection for mentalists and magicians. Know when someone is lying by holding their wrists.

"This, as Devin says, is for the advanced performer. It is not new, it is not 100%, but for those times that you must, this is the solution. Do not overlook this, and if you know the method, you will be delightfully experimenting. Put this in your arsenal." - Marc Salem
The technique described in this PDF has been one of my closely guarded secrets over the years. I used this constantly when I performed as psychic, Jason Michaels.

This information was first made available to the magic...

Laugh Lines 6 by Jimmy MuirJimmy Muir's hilarious sixth volume adds yet more side-splitting jokes, gags, comic observations, heckler stoppers, one-liners and opening monologue ideas for magicians, emcees, comics, salespeople and others who need to inject humor into their presentations.

Jimmy Muir was acknowledged by many of magic's greats as the funniest guy on the planet. Whether it was performing at a huge national convention or emceeing the floor show at his San Francisco hotel, Jimmy's material was always top notch.

The original Laugh Lines booklets are sadly out of print and jealously hoarded by magicians and...

Mentelimination Plus by Ken de Courcy

Find any card a spectator takes from a borrowed and shuffled pack.

EFFECT: The magician tells his audience he has trained his mind to work like a computer. To demonstrate its computer-like capabilities, he asks a spectator to shuffle a pack of cards then, without looking at it, remove one card and place it in his pocket. Taking back the pack, the performer runs through it quickly, then goes through it again even more quickly and pulls out one card which he places face down on the table. The spectator removes his card from his pocket and places it face-up alongside the magician's card, then...

Secrets of Gallery Reading by W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight
"Gallery Reading is unique, it's unlike any other book on cold readings. I love it! It is organic, real and different. It's not stock, but exploring and seeming comprehensive to the audience. You will use it right away. I did." - Marc Salem
Imagine that you have finished your mental act and then start telling complete strangers, with remarkable accuracy, their secret thoughts, as well as their private and personal affairs from stage. You can point out people who have lost objects or money and apparently help them find them in some cases. This is accomplished without any impression devices,...

Fingerprint Dossier by Jon RacherbaumerFrom the Preface:
I must confess that my initial reaction to the Fingerprint Trick was tepid. There was no tension or conflict and it came off as being a glorified location trick. But one aspect interested me. It violated one of magic's cardinal rules - namely, never tell an audience what you are going to do before you do it. And, worse, in this case the performer divulges how he plans do it. Every presentation explains how the trick ostensibly works: The selection is found by detecting the thumbprint left on it. This is a plausible explanation, but as the trick unfolds, this casual explanation...
