This is the book that has inspired most of the "zany" acts that have wowed them at magic conventions and other shows. Funny, funny stuff - but so easy for you to do, with these excellent instructions.

Topper Martyn is a lifetime magician, known all over Europe and here in the U.S. for his great ideas. In this ebook, he covers the preparation of your clothing for the act, the wild laugh-provoking dropping of stuff all over the stage, his collapsing table, crazy linking rings that are out of control, the mike cord that gets into the magic, various flashes and noises, the various tricks used in the act, complete patter, music, lights, and presentation. Plus special sections on "How to Make People Laugh," comedy routines for the Multiplying Bottles, Egg Bag, Bag Gag, a number of Alarm Clock stunts, playing card gags, egg tricks, match gags, etc., etc. including a "baby elephant." Another section covers trick tables to make. You will definitely use this material if you are looking for comedy stuff, bright, wild, mad, mad!!
