Scripted #1 by Larry Brodahl

A script and performance video showing how the Professors Nightmare and Fiber Optics can make a fun and mystifying routine.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort.

How do you explain to an audience in a reasonable manner how and why this fabulous visual magic is happening?

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to write a script that successfully blends the Professors Nightmare with the moves from Fiber Optics...

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"? ...

Scripted #6: Lie Detector with 4 Objects by Larry Brodahl

Imagine a self working trick that uses 4 objects and only three questions that allows you to determine which object or objects the spectator(s) are thinking of. Now add fun, misdirection, and a performance video.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. Especially a routine where you have 1 or more audience members mentally select any of 4 objects and then answer 3 questions with either lies or the truth. And you identify the truthtellers -vs- the liars, and you discern which object they were thinking of.

How do you explain to an audience,...

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...

Imagine being able to control coincidence. Where the time and location of two events determines the outcome of the events. Now you can!

The magician removes a BLUE backed card from his pocket as he talks about coincidence, and how coincidence is decided by two factors: physical proximity and time. He has someone sit on the card. He then removes a RED backed deck from his pocket, and spreads the cards out front and back...

A script and method for the Rising card trick where the spectator goes through the deck and selects the card to rise. Can be done within inches of the audience with no sleight of hand.

From the introduction by Billy McComb:

He's written a leaflet ... I shall not call it a book ... on Compering ... this bearded idiot. I've read it and regrettably he seems to know what he's talking about. I have written a bit to make the omissions less glaring ... but blast me cups and balls, he does appear to know what he's on about. And he does get booked to do it ... and at good money too. Forgive me. I must leave you ...

Scripted #35: Picto Transpo by Larry Brodahl

A logical and funny script is included that covers why the trick is being done, and even allows you to pick any volunteer.

Note: This trick is not fully explained. You must own the trick to be able to perform it.

Keep'em Laughing by Aldo Colombini

The success of my previous comedy books ‘almost’ forced me to collect another incredible bunch of one liners and other funny material. The best compliment I had regarding these publications came from Ed Eckl (co-publisher of Precursor magazine), who said, “In the 60’s we had Robert Orben providing comedy material, now we have Aldo Colombini.”

Robert Orben was and still is my ‘hero’ and my mentor even though we have never met; so the words assume an even greater meaning to me. Here’s the content: HILARIOUS ONE LINERS, IRONIC AND FUNNY GRAFFITI, SMART HECKLERS REMARKS, and...
