Rich Marotta and Twila Zone are a successful magic and comedy team. On this video they discuss the secrets of stand-up comedy magic that is performed with a partner. Along the way they will teach some of their best routines.
Although you will learn many professional quality routines that can be performed alone or with a partner, the main purpose of this video is to teach you how to integrate a partner within your act. You will learn how to expand your act, routine for two people, polish older routines, create eccentric characters, use your partner as a gimmick, misdirect through division of attention, develop a character, implement character motivation, the use of on-stage relationships and much more. Although the conversations and advice are geared for a two-person act most of the information is useful to anyone who wants to put together a cohesive performance.
Routines Performed & Explained:
►Erect Rope: A rope is made to stand erect.
►Bride Of Best Trick: A salad dressing jar changes into a ketchup bottle and back to salad dressing. As the audience begins to figure it out you have a kicker ending where the ketchup bottle disappears.
►The Comedy Levitation: The old circus gag where your assistant apparently floats across the stage. Upon floating the second time the trick is exposed causing laughter.
►Appearing Scarf And Fish: After a gag of apparently producing a scarf you produce a fish bowl on your assistant’s head.
►Arm Chopper: A funny two-person arm chopper routine where you apparently chop a spectator’s arm off.
