Scripted #2: Malini Egg Bag by Larry Brodahl

A script, analysis, and performance video showing how entertaining and mystifying a trick the Egg Bag can be. And without using the "Hide the egg under my arm" type gags.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. But it's even harder for tricks that have no preset routine - such as the Egg Bag. How do you explain to an audience in a reasonable manner how and why you're doing this? How do you make this magical? How do you create the climax? And how do you do this without retreading old ideas, such as the "fake hide-theegg-under-the-arm gag"? ...

Paul Fleming wrote:

Patent Pending describes an "act" in which the magician is introduced to his audience as an "incredible inventive genius" who is devoting his time to helping to win the war but is, sad to relate, somewhat "screwy." The performer...

Scripted #7: Solution 6 by Larry Brodahl

A reworking of the 6 Card Repeat like none other. Using no gimmicked cards, the trick has a funny and visual plot, and for once a true climax.

Are you looking for a methodology and script for the 6 Card Repeat that steps outside the usual plot of "I saw a guy count 1,2,3,4,5,6 cards, throw away 1,2,3 and he still had 6 cards"?

Because let's face it, the story is silly, doesn't have any spectator 'hook' nor does it have a recognizable climax beyond the weak ending of "And I still don't know how he did it."

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to adapt a script...

Patter: The Story Behind the Magic by Brian T. Lees

As magicians we do the same range of magic over and over again. What makes it different is our character, presentation and patter. We all put our own twist on the routines. Patter is the glue that identifies the magic to us personally. It is our personal signature. If we don't take time to create new or updated patter then our performance begins to sound routine or "follow the motions". This ebook identifies different types of patter, offers some suggestions and provides a few examples.

  • What's in the box
  • Purpose of patter
  • Story patter
  • Instructional patter
  • Narration patter
  • Situation patter ...

Scripted #14: The Penrose Knot by Larry Brodahl

The Penrose knot has never been clearly explained until now. A strange effect that is not only made fun by the supplied script, but an "in the hands" tying method is revealed.

The magician ties a rope into a chain of 30 knots. Each knot appears identical.

The spectator grabs one of the knots. The magician now pulls on the ends of the rope, and every knot dissolves - except - the knot the spectator selected. That knot proves to be a common overhand knot.

The Penrose knot was published in Karl Fulves' Self Working Rope Tricks, but the description was less-than-clear, and the effect is quite strange. ...
