Wesley James
So Much More by Wesley James

Among the most essential but least addressed subjects in Magic's vast literature is how to make you, as a performer, and your magic performances stronger, better appreciated, and more memorable. Far too little has been offered to the magic community beyond largely narrative patter and lame gags, too often juvenile and sadly insulting. Apart from Make Me Care (2003) and Remarkable Ruses & Ruminations (2007), in 2014, Wesley released So Much More (2014). Building on his two earlier books, the original text explained some of what magical performers could do to improve their performances. However, in that 20-page book he could not address...

Sam Sharpe
The Magic Play by Sam Sharpe

Sam Sharpe (M.I.M.C.) has done extensive research to produce this volume, The Magic Play. 150 pages of absorbing reading, all about the use of magic in dramatic plays, what tricks were used, what famous personages used them, where they were used, how they were...

Aldo Colombini
Gagbuster by Aldo Colombini

Funny stuff for magicians, MCs and other entertainers. For a pro just one new gag or bit of comedy that fits into his program is worth a lot of money.

Here you have a sampling of some great gags:

  • FLIP-LINES
  • BANTERS
  • AD-LIBS
  • COMEDY SIGHT BITS
  • EMCEE BLOCKBUSTERS

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...

Bob Cassidy
Intuitively Yours by Bob Cassidy

This is a complete presentation for corporate and professional groups - performance rights included.

It's no secret that public and keynote speaking is one of the most lucrative markets for the skilled mentalist. Instead of earning $500 to $1500 for a typical program, the speaker generally makes ten times that. Many mentalists, though, feel a bit awkward with the idea of wrapping a piece of entertainment up as a serious lecture. Probably because of the natural feeling that's it's just a bit dishonest to use mentalism as a means of "selling" pop psychology or spurious science.

It was exactly...

How to Chalk Talk by Harlan Tarbell

The chalk talk is an almost forgotten entertainment type. The only time I have seen a chalk talk was on a Saturday Night Live show. The idea of the chalk talk is to combine story telling with drawing usually in a funny way. Today one can do this with a whiteboard. You don't need to be a skilled artist to do a chalk talk.

It uses several standard props, some commercial tricks no longer made, but which may be available on used lists, and a couple of original effects especially created. The goal in this show was to give audiences a wide range of surprising magic routines that each involved a separate country and culture. Jim deliberately chose old and new tricks, and intermixed them with old and new cultures to give some sense of current world situations as well as some historical perspective. ...

Patter in Rhyme by Bert Douglas

Most of us are guilty of spending too little time on developing a unique and personal presentation. We rather work on perfecting moves and techniques. There is nothing against improving and honing your sleights, but we should spend equally on perfecting our presentation. Using rhymes is one way to develop an entertaining and memorable presentation. This booklet suggests rhymes for several classic effects such as 'Torn and Restored Newspaper', 'Cards up the Sleeve', 'Cut and Restored Rope', 'The Silk and Egg', 'Color Changing Silks', 'Passe Passe Bottles' and more. You can either take these rhymes...

This is another of DeLawrence's humorous patter booklets. Among others you will find patter for 'rising cards', 'spirit slates', 'multiplying billiard balls' and 'card in egg'. The humor is almost 100 years old but still makes one laugh or smile and could therefore be a good source of inspiration for a new and modern presentation. Don't dismiss the old stuff just because it is old.
