How to do Punch and Judy by Sidney de Hempsey

In this very comprehensive ebook by a master Punch performer, you get an education in an art that will pay you well, if you want to use it to make money.

Added to his magic show, it is a riotous finale. Sold separately, it is a show in itself.

Contents:

  • Reminiscences of a Punch Man - Delightful reading and great background for this new art you are studying.

Stanton Carlisle
Puppetrix Supreme by Stanton Carlisle

From the introduction by Edwin Hooper:

Stanton Carlisle is well-known for his many articles on mentalism which have appeared in The Magigram Magazine. Stanton is more than a mentalist, being a general all-round magical performer who has played practically every type of engagement - not only with mentalism but with magic, ranging from sophisticated Night Club dates to children's parties. At these parties, puppets have played their part.

We are delighted that Stanton has released some of his very excellent routines and bits of business for those children's entertainers who are thinking of adding a puppet or puppets to their...

Tony Green
Professional Punch by Tony Green

From the opening remarks:

The following remarks may be well known to the working professional. However, when I started full time and rushed out to buy books on the subject, the only information they contained was one traditional script, one or two small novelty scenes and how to make and work the swazzle. Wonderful books, full of good helpful advice enabling the beginner to present a worthwhile show, but nothing at all on the subject of holding the attention of an audience against other attractions in the immediate vicinity. This is why I decided to put my ideas, which some Punch men think...

Will Ayling
The Lilliputians by Will Ayling

An adventure into glove and rod puppet theatre.

From the introduction:

The need for a puppet show being established, the selection of type both of figures and presentation raised problems. The marionette string puppet, operated mostly from above, has an indirect application and limited movement in spite of considerable flexibility of joints. Rod puppets worked mostly from below, also suffer limitations, their movements restricted and stylised. Certainly both types require more than one hand to effectively operate one figure and are best suited to the traditional proscenium staging. ...
