Customer reviews for Thoughts on Performing Stand Up Comedy Magic
Nathan Kranzo offers numerous performance insights that many may find valuable. For example, his advice about handling hecklers and disruptive audience members is great.
However, the input from an editor may have benefitted this treatise.
Under the header, “In Conclusion” at the end of the book, the author writes, in part: “It’s definitely not the last word on comedy magic or maybe even, the first word.
"It’s just some random thoughts and observations I though I would share.”
The organization of the material is, indeed, random.
One wonders if Mr. Kranzo arranges the sequence of the comedic stories he tells, his routines, or performances, as randomly as the material in this book has been presented.
The typographic formatting is, well, unusual. The first and last chapters are set “ragged right” as many books are. But inside chapters are set in justified columns.
The line and paragraph spacing are uniform throughout the book, but it is widely exaggerated. This 116-page book could easily have been 80 pages long, with optimized formatting.
Finally, an editor may have suggested that the author consider the necessity of peppering the text with occasional vulgarities. Fine in comedy club, perhaps not so much in a tutorial.
