Suitcase Side Show by Tommy Windsor

Here is something different for the club or platform magician - a new act that will get you more bookings. Now you, too, can perform an immensely entertaining carnival pitch act that uses effects you most likely already own.

Contains comedy magic, patter and routines enough for three changes of program. The act is based on a premise of the performer playing the role of a sideshow barker, complete with spiel. Lots of the author's time and money went into this book, which was three years in preparation as the material was polished and refined in actual performance.

If you've ever wanted to adopt a stage persona similar to Harry Anderson's "Harry the Hat" character, now you can. Your audience will love this act, from start to finish as you demonstrate effects from the carnival "10-in-1" sideshow on the midway.

A totally one-person act; no assistants needed. Can be performed "in one" while other acts are setting up behind the curtain. Every versatile performer understands the value of a second act to get through the "slow times" in your booking calendar. Get this.
