Acquired this vintage book from Magic Incorporated that has been in their storage vault. It is a new old stock early edition from many years ago, and as such, may have some rusty staple bindings and small rust stains on the covers or interior pages in the staple area. Otherwise in excellent condition.
By U.F. Grant. Revised, enlarged and illustrated by Gene Gloye. This is the kind of material – assorted comedy bits and pieces, that you can add to any group of tricks to build up your show, add laughs, and use to fill in for time.
Chapters cover: Cards, Comedy Props, Using Volunteer Assistants, Mental Magic Gags, Gag Bits of Business, Stunts with an Assistant or Plant, Patter, More Stunts, For the Master of Ceremonies, For Magicians, Politicking With Magic.
The final chapter is especially interesting in election years, when you want to add political material, or even build a whole short sequence around it.
175 Tips and Gags in all is a great value!
Forty pages. Reworked and reprinted by Magic, Inc. Printshop with permission of the Abbott Magic Novelty Company 1983.
