Jimmy Muir
Laugh Lines 1 by Jimmy Muir

The book that started it all. Introducing Laugh Lines, a hysterical collection of patter, gags, one-liners and opening monologues for magicians, emcees and other entertainers.

Jimmy Muir was acknowledged by many of magic's greats as the funniest guy on the planet. Whether it was performing at a huge national convention or emceeing the floor show at his San Francisco hotel, Jimmy's material was always top notch. The original Laugh Lines booklets are sadly out of print and jealously hoarded by magicians and comedians. Individual volumes are hard to come by—especially the later volumes, which...

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...

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.
