Scott F. Guinn
Canned Dunbury by Scott F. Guinn

A comedy card on seat routine with a twist.

This one is an absolute killer! Scott's Comedy Card on Seat routine uses a different method from the well-known Chuck Fayne or gaffed chair routines. The audience participant joins you up front and sits in an ordinary chair. Then, while you look away, he selects and signs a card, replaces it anywhere he wants in the deck and thoroughly shuffles the deck before returning it to you. After some fun, and very amusing byplay, the card vanishes, followed by a kick-in-the-head moment that NOBODY sees coming, before it is revealed that he is SITTING on...

Scott F. Guinn
The Best Nest by Scott F. Guinn

The Best Nest - Scott's Borrowed Ring in Nest of Boxes routine is an absolute treasure! One of his pet performance pieces, you can use the routine with virtually any existing marketed set, or make up the DIY set as Scott explains, and save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Scott has honed this routine over decades of performances, and it shows. Every little detail and nuance is given, along with subtleties and convincers that you won't find anywhere else, including a really easy and really sneaky way of making the audience believe the nest of boxes has been freely and completely displayed...

Book Him Danno! by Graham Hey

Another fabulous comedy mentalism effect with a full comedy routine.

An envelope is in full view which contains a single book. A plastic tumbler contains many pieces of paper - each piece has the titles of two books written on it. The spectator freely selects one piece of paper. They then have a choice of either book - and they can change their mind! They finally select one ... and it's the same as the one in the envelope.

The envelope contains one book - the selected one. The envelope is then ripped up to prove there is nothing else inside. This is virtually a self-working effect and...

Devin Knight
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...

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!

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...

The Videot: The Comical Approach to Magic by Terry Seabrooke

This was the first magic video Martin Breese released. While it was not the first instructional magic video tape (that honor goes to a 1971 video featuring Dai Vernon), it was certainly among the very first ones to appear and find relative wide distribution both in the US and UK.

This instructional video is designed specifically for the Cabaret entertainer. An hour long with full explanations of each effect. Terry Seabrooke gives away some of his cherished secrets and more important the reasons why and how. Also includes a pretty clever unpublished mentalism routine by Al Koran.

Fred Outdone Squared by Wolfgang Riebe

Based on the old 'Fred' card trick, Wolfgang launched his magician fooling version 'Fred Outdone' in 1990, causing a sensation amongst magicians and adding a unique twist in that the whole deck could be shown as a red back deck, except for the Fred card. In 2017 Wolfgang took the trick to new heights, hence the new 'Fred Outdone Squared' title.

It's as simple as any spectator naming any card, e.g. seven of hearts. The entire deck is shown to be red backs with different names on the back of each card. Even another seven can be shown to have a red back and different name. When the seven of...
