Comedy for Magicians - A GUIDE FOR THE TOASTMASTER
The first publication in "The McDuff Trilogy" (consisting of an aggregate total of four books - McDuff always does things strangely) was The M.C. Bit Book.
Originally Published April 1, 1980, it has become a minor classic. The first press run completely sold out long ago.
This compilation of humorous bits will help an M.C. keep a crowd mesmerized between acts of a magic show. You're bound to find at least one gag you'll use in your act.
Copiously illustrated in black and white throughout by Rhett Bryson. A collection of jokes, gags, and bits of business with and without everyday household objects. Very good indeed.
Want your audience to howl with laughter? Work some of these into your M.C. act and hear the difference!
