Comedy Magic by George McAthyComedy Magic
by George McAthy

The book is packed full of smart writing, containing plenty of gags and patter which you will want to use; all of it clever and laugh producing. Several complete routines are also included, on various subjects; cards, mental work, cigarettes, etc. Recommended reading for magicians, mentalists, comedians, emcees, ventriloquists, and anyone else who needs to break the ice or liven up a presentation.

Long out of print, we've updated this excellent book by removing the few tired, dated bits and replacing them, on a one-for-one basis, with new, fresh gags and bits of business to breathe new life into your club, close-up or stage act.

The first several pages are jokes, gags and one-liners. The balance of the book is magic that will be a hit with your audience, and not too difficult to perform. Here's a look at what's inside:

  • Introduction
  • Patter and Gags
  • Whiskey from Where?
  • My Own Rising Cards
  • Red and Black
  • Scotchman’s Match Trick
  • A Mental Card Discovery.
  • Sealed Orders
  • Patter for the Vanishing Bird Cage
  • Comedy Opening Piece of Business
  • Mental Impulses
  • Inseparable Cards
  • A Different Torn Card Trick
  • Roll A Cig
  • The B. U. M.
