Val Andrews
Original Comedy Magic by Val Andrews

Reputation making humorous magical effects, which are clever as well as comical.

From the introduction:

The introduction was unnecessary, we've met before ... though I must confess that this book is quite different from anything I've written in the past. 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?...

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,...

Explosive Comedy by Val Andrews

Stunts, Tricks and Gags with Flashes, Bangs and Surprises

From the introduction:

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...

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...

Ken de Courcy
Lucky in Love by Ken de Courcy

Here is another magical gem from Ken De Courcy. It is packed with mystery, humor and audience participation. This card effect is suitable for close-up, stage, cabaret-floor or where you want to present it. The totally unexpected (yet logical) climax really hits the audience between the eyes and cannot fail to gather applause.

EFFECT: A lady is invited to assist. She chooses one of four envelopes and the remaining three are left in full view. She is then handed a red-backed pack to shuffle while the magician shuffles a blue pack. Then the packs are exchanged and shuffled again if you want. ...

'Out of this world' laughs, visual gags and tricks to add atmosphere for close-up and stand-up.

From the introduction:

This ebook is a little different from my others in that this one contains some tricks and routines too. So there really is something for everyone in this ebook. Opening visual gags have always played a big part in my own act on the cruise ships as they help settle any nerves while also getting over to the audience that my show is going to be fun (hopefully)!

Devin Knight
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...

Sock It To 'Em by Graham Reed

A comedy and original "Just Chance" routine for children and adults with several presentation ideas. Very easy to do and to prepare.

Here's a tremendous 'Just Chance' effect; tremendous because not only is the method extremely clever, clean and easy to perform, but the plot is distinctly novel and offbeat. Clear instructions explain how to prepare it in just a few minutes. All the items you need are easily found.

In performance, a neat plastic rod is shown. Attached to this are three colored clothes pegs and three colorful socks. The magician explains that it is his own way to make a gift...

The Dirty Dealer by Jules Lenier & B. W. McCarron

An entertaining close-up effect where you attempt to teach the spectator how to "dirty deal", but always goes wrong when the spectator tries. It gets funnier and funnier, ending with a surprise climax.

Audiences enjoy tricks with a gambling theme. If the effect also combines comedy and mystery, then you have a triple threat combination that's sure to be remembered.

The performer explains how he sent away for a mail order course in dealing cards. He offers to teach a spectator how to do it, offering a money-back guarantee. The spectator can't seem to follow directions, even though the performer...

Thayer's Comedy Crystal Gazing Act by William W. Larsen

Here's the perfect "one man" comedy mentalism act that's great for those occasions when you aren't able to perform your regular show. Or add it as a feature to your regular act.

Don't confuse this with the old "two person" comedy mindreading act. This hilarious routine can be performed by you, alone, without assistants, stage hands or stooges. Using a crystal ball, a jumbo electric light bulb, or even a swirly-painted bowling ball, you cause a laugh riot by apparently answering questions which have been merely "thought of" by your audience. There's no mystery to it. All you need is this clever...
