Paul Voodini
Five Haunted Keys by Paul Voodini

Paul Voodini presents five perfectly frightful presentations for the haunted key. Stories to chill the blood, prick at the conscience, and send shivers down the spine, all eloquently scripted in the inimitable Voodini style.

Robert Orben
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.

This is a funny patter and presentation routine, with which the author has been bringing down the house. You patter along with magical solutions of all the problems confronting the U. S. Government, war, peace, employment, hunger, G.I.'s, housing, ...

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...

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...

The world has changed - radically! Being an entertainer and telling jokes has gone from 'having fun' with the audience to complaints about every possible issue. Political Correctness now rules. Whatever your view on the issue, the new reality is that all entertainers now need to be more aware than ever before not to offend an audience member. Hence the need for one-liner jokes that are non-political, non-religious, non-sexual, and just about non-everything.

As much as is humanly possible, jokes from past books and new ones have been combined in the ebook that will 'hopefully' not offend anyone....
