What to say when you perform!
Great advice and examples from 26 leading magicians!
This book teaches you exactly how to script a trick, from what to say to how to develop your character performing the trick.
We've all come across a great trick that either had no "patter" or script with it, or had a script that just did not fit our style.
It's a shame to set aside a good effect just because you don't know what to say when you perform it.
Even worse, it's a shame to perform a trick using the wrong script for your performance style.
Nothing is deadlier than a great trick that is NOT entertaining!
Never be stuck not knowing what to say, ever again!
From the publisher:
When Scripting Magic was first released in 2007, it was an immediate, surprise sensation.
Magicians around the world, hungry for ways to improve their magic, were thrilled to have a volume dedicated to the vital question: what do you say when you perform?
Written by Pete McCabe and including contributions from 26 of magic's best thinkers and most experienced performers, Scripting Magic has gone through three printings since then, but is now out of print.
THIS BOOK CONTAINS:
- 45 scripts
- 13 essays
- 7 interviews
- and one flowchart to make you a better magician!
