Wolfgang Riebe
Comedy Paper Bag Blindfold Card Routine by Wolfgang Riebe

Possibly the world's funniest card trick!

A spectator is asked to assist on stage with a card trick. Both he and the magician wear a paper bag blindfold over their heads as a card is attempted to be selected. Eventually a large knife is introduced into the routine that the magician intends to stab through the selected card when the spectator is instructed to toss the entire jumbo deck into the air.

Wolfgang Riebe
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...

Terry Seabrooke
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 Also includes a pretty clever unpublished mentalism routine by Al Koran. Terry's versions of the Chinese...

David Devlin
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...

Chris Wasshuber
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...

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...

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...
