First Aid Lines by Aldo Colombini

The cure for hecklers and other problems. In this ebook you’ll find an incredible amount of funny lines (different from the other books) to use when those inevitable accidents happen. It’s not a question of IF it will happen; it's a question of WHEN it will happen. You face a heckler, you drop something, you make a mistake, you hear a noise off stage, a baby cries, etc., knowing exactly what to say at the appropriate moment will show the audience that you are a real professional. Hundreds of comedy one-liners to cover virtually every accident.

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...

Gagbuster by Aldo Colombini

Funny stuff for magicians, MCs and other entertainers. For a pro just one new gag or bit of comedy that fits into his program is worth a lot of money.

Here you have a sampling of some great gags:

Watch Winder: noise maker by Chris Wasshuber

This little tool produces a clicking or ratcheting noise and is typically used for comedy bits to wind up a watch or crack somebodies arm or neck and other bits.

The starting design came from Randi Middleton who gave me permission to use it anyway I like. I have made several changes to the design, rounded some corners and edges so that it feels better in the hand. Since I am using a stronger material I also could thin up the walls to make it slimmer and I optimized the tongue shape to maximize the noise. I also improved 3D printability. The biggest change is in my use of materials. The housing...

Without Mirrors by Christopher Charles

Magicians and emcees know that comedy plays an important role in warming up today's audiences. No matter how great your tricks may be, if the spectators aren't laughing, they're not being entertained. Whether for TV, stage, casino floor show (night club), or lodge shows, Without Mirrors contains an excellent assortment of material to choose from to make you the center of attention.

Memorize two or three of the one-liners and you'll also be prepared to deliver an apparently ad-lib, off the cuff remark, just as the late-night TV hosts do. While you don't have a team of comedy writers like the...

Case File by David Devlin

Every so often a piece of mentalism comes along that is more like a piece of Comedy Theater rather than "just a trick". David Devlin's Case File is a piece of Comedic Mental Theater. It is a murder mystery showpiece. It has three predictions, audience participation, a comedic presentation, and three different methods working together to create a part of your show that will be totally unforgettable!

Here is the routine:

A spectator is brought up on stage, and is given a large folder labeled, "Case File". She is told not to open it, and to keep it safe. The performer now brings up another...

Super Delux Baby Gag by Devin Knight

Devin Knight has reworked this old gag for today's audiences with new up to date topical gags and jokes not found in other baby gag routines. The routine also includes an optional kicker finish where an adult photo of the named person is removed from the envelope.

This is not the old standard baby gag. This is a complete comedy routine in itself. The performer says he wants to try some quick psychic experiments. He begins with a comedy number prediction, proving he thought of the same number the participant did(???). Next, he asks anyone to name a famous person. As a gag he removes a baby...

His new outfit will consist of a sports coat, shirt, necktie, pants, socks, shoes, and even a pair of boxer shorts. He is told that when he gets to the checkout-counter, he discovers he does not have enough money with him and has to return something to the shelf. The participant...

The Assistant Test by Devin Knight

A comedy warmup that always gets laughter from an audience as the magician explains a test he uses to hire assistants.

Technically, this is not a magic trick. It is something that magicians and entertainers of all types can use. It never fails to amaze, amuse, entertain and create laughter. It will often generate smiles from the most stone-faced spectators. I know this from experience, as I have used this bit of comedy in my shows for over twenty years.

The magician tells a short story about a simple aptitude test that he always gives potential employees that want to work in his show,...

The Red Hot Coin Revealed by Devin Knight
"This is perhaps, the greatest 'come on', or 'bally stunt' the world has ever known." - Floyd Thayer
This is a sadly forgotten effect that was a big hit back in vaudeville, but overlooked by today's magicians. It has been used by Thurston, Blackstone Sr., U. F. Grant, Tommy Windsor and other great magicians. This is one of the funniest routines in magic and you don't have to be a comedian or comedy performer to pull it off. It always results in hilarious laughter.

The premise is simple; the performer invites a boy up and shows him a half-dollar. The performer says, "This is the one and only RED HOT COIN. After years...

How To Do The Electric Chairs by Devin Knight

This is probably one of the most ancient of all comedy effects, yet strong enough and entertaining enough to be part of the performance of many leading entertainers. The late mentalist Maurice Fogel made a big hit with this in his show.

The basic effect is that five to six spectators are invited to the front and sit in chairs. In a few moments, they jump up and scream, saying that their chair shocked them. The chairs are examined and found to be ordinary; the moment they sit down, they jump up again, saying they were shocked again. This is repeated as often as the performer wishes. The performer...

How To Produce A Rabbit by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

No one can really call himself a magician, unless he can pull a rabbit out of a hat. It is the most expected trick in magic today. Even though few magicians do it; you always have kids asking, "Are you going to pull a rabbit out of a hat?"

Potential clients calling about birthday parties, often ask if you can pull a rabbit out of a hat. Some magician's try to pacify the mothers or children using a mirror box production of a rabbit. Good try, but it is not the same. People want to see a rabbit produced from an empty top hat, or even a borrowed hat. If you can do this; you have a big advantage...
