Scripted #8: Counting on Lothar by Larry Brodahl

This is a complete script and revised handling for the COUNTING ON LOTHAR trick, perhaps one of the strangest and mystifying card tricks around. It allows the magician to predict the past, the present, and even the future.

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 #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...

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.

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,...

Tag-Lines by Robert Orben

Once a script writer for Jack Paar's show (1962-63) and Red Skelton's show (1964-70), has also written for Dick Gregory (six years), and was a speechwriter for President Gerald Ford in 1973-77.

One-liners, flip lines, gags and patter. Many of these one-lines are still good today. Others just need some updating but still very funny stuff.

The real benefit of having this material available in digital form is to be able to search for particular words and phrases which related to your performance, occasion or venue. This makes it much easier to find suitable comedy lines.

Who Done It? by Jack Shepherd

A magical mystery in one act.

From the introduction:

It will be obvious after reading this manuscript that for the actual magical methods it would be simple to substitute other methods and other apparatus and still keep the basic idea. This is for the reader to decide, but we would suggest that if this is done, the apparatus used should be of a simple nature and not elaborate conjuring properties, as these would divert the attention of the audience from the story and routine to the magical mechanics, and it is the story that counts. The only way to get something really new is by a new...
