Nick Diffatte is slowly becoming one of the most popular comedy magicians in the business. He has already appeared on the cover of the major magic magazines and is a regular replacement for Mac King.
The first printing of this book immediately sold-out and we are currently the exclusive supplier of the second printing. Get it while you can.
The book takes you on a conversational tour through the art of comedy, magic, the integration of both. You are also exposed to the many aspects of becoming a good comedy magician, writer, performer and how to stand out in the field.
There is a total of eleven essays that cover the various subjects. They include: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Cheap Notebooks, Funny, Trends Are Traps, Bad Shows, Theft, Openers, Swearing, If You Want Meat Go to a Butcher, Writing, and Looking Outside of Magic.
You are also taught three routines:
Dye Another Day: This is Nick’s handling and method for Billy McComb’s Half-Dyed Hank routine where you produce a scarf, change its color, explain the method and end with it being half of each of the colors.
Nest Of Office Supplies: Nick’s handling of the object to wallet/impossible location plot. Whatever you vanish ends up inside a sealed envelope, that is encased in Aluminum foil and sealed in a bubble mailer.
Schtick Of Gum: A brilliant application of the Bank Night premise. You reward your helper with a piece of gum that they freely remove from the packet. It turns out to be the only stick that has gum inside, the others have folded money that you kept for safe keeping in case you got mugged.
First Edition, second printing. Published by Nick Diffatte in 2019. 8.5 x 5.5 inch, saddle-stitched, 72-pages, with color illustrations and photographs. All our copies are hand-autographed.
