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...

Here's Your Sign by Rachel Colombini & Aldo Colombini

Here you have a collection of comedy signs that you may use as an MC or as an entertaining funny spot for any act. Just select the ones you like, print them in cardstock (laminate them if you want so they last forever) and just present them to your audiences. We would not suggest that you use them all at once but just a few (seven or ten seems a fair number).

You get a total of 36 signs.

In these pages you will find original effects which lend themselves well to COMEDY presentation ... though the effects are not burlesque, and the mystery angle is definitely there! In addition to these effects, you will find routines, magical sketches, and complete acts. Not bad value for whatever the publisher decides to charge. How much?...
