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. Everything goes wrong and the audience is in hysterics. Eventually the magician identifies the card successfully. An incredibly commercial, funny and entertaining routine for any serious professional. ...

Comedy Coin Prediction by Devin Knight

Floyd Gerald Thayer
Dr. Q's Comedy Hypnotic Act by Floyd Gerald Thayer

Imagine being a stage hypnotist, being able to hypnotize a group of audience volunteers and presenting a hilariously funny performance. Well, now you can!

This system allows you to have instant control of a committee of audience volunteers on stage. By applying the information in this routine, you'll learn introductory tests to weed out the smart-alecks and keep the best subjects. Along the way, the hypnotic tests get funnier and funner.

The more antics that the group of volunteers performs, the more laughter is created. Your audience will be splitting their sides -- and you're in command...

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant
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...

Joke-shops, novelty-stores... are packed with "explosive" and surprise items which have far too long been regarded as "practical jokes", when, in actual fact, they can be used to good advantage by magi and other entertainers.

This book is divided into three main sections..."BANGS"..."FLASHES" and "SURPRISES"! Maybe I have cheated a little in the items I have included in the latter section...but they were all good, and had no other place to go! Now that you have this book, I'm going to watch you pretty...

Devin Knight
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,...

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...

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...
