In most magic books, it works out fine when every so often there's an inventive new routine. This book is different. FIRST, every idea that ever came to Steve Spill's mind during his 50 YEARS in comedy magic isn't here just because it seemed in some way original. The routines in this book are ALL KILLERS, NO FILLERS. SECOND, included in every routine is every word, joke, action, & gesture of his presentation. True, not every word, joke, action, & gesture will fit you like a glove, or fit every circumstance where you might perform. But how to make the routines in this book, or any book, truly yours, is revealed here in clear detail... That's the focus of this text. This book is not a catalogue of knuckle-busters - it's about making your magic you, adding comedy, & how to develop your own original material. Ten of the routines have never been published in any form ever before. There are two that have. The first is SHARP POINTY THINGS. Over the last decade, this effect has been a best-selling fifty-dollar single trick DVD, Confessions of a Needle Swallower. Added details about the routine are presented here for the first time. The second, CITRIC ACID, is Spill's classic routine for the LEMON TRICK, & was published a million years ago on a Doc Eason video. That presentation was only somewhat accurate, without essential elements that aid in the ease of handling or any of the pertinent thinking or logic behind its construction. NOW everything is exposed here, much of it now obtainable for the very first time. Here is a brief description of the other routines in the book: LIKE A VIRGIN: A borrowed Signed Bill to Impossible Location - using a stack of CDs - that was originally developed & performed for Richard Branson & guests at one of his exclusive events. THINGS OF UNIQUE BEAUTY: Everyone in the audience is let in on the secret except for the onstage volunteer in this bit about uniquely American items such as the Corn Dog, the Chia Pet, Snuggy, the Clapper, et cetera - in the end not only the onstage volunteer, but also the audience, is fooled - but in different ways. RED & BLUE: A half/dyed color-changing hank routine about Democrats & Republicans that equally makes fun of both donkeys & elephants during the various phases - ending with the conclusion that both parties are, "Cut from the same cloth." MODRERN FAMILY: A Soft Soap type routine - with G-strings, bikini underwear, & tighty-whiteys - that are soiled with lipstick kiss marks & handprints - that's a surefire recipe for magic that causes a stir in loins & laughter. LEAF ME ALONE: A Six Card repeat idea done with three leaves & a surprise ending that features a ton of audience participation which culminates in a big-promised-audience-response. ABRA CADAVERS: A You Do as I Do concept using toe tags & death certificates with a darkly humorous script & a surprise burst of flame at the finish. DING BELL DIE BOX: This ain't your grandpa's Die Box routine - but it does use a half-dozen of the kind of bells you see sitting on hotel check-in desks with a button on top, that you tap & there's a "ding" sound - that will assuredly keep your grandpa awake. FROZEN PONY: A spectator-to-spectator telepathic routine with variations including a banquet room ice sculpture, crystal ball, & decorative glass figurines. COPING WITH EDDIE: The only card trick in the book that's about a boy intimidated by a gently pranking tormentor - which he beats with a Triumph-type-effect. GO HIMBER FREE: The single most inquired-about routine in the book. Three finger rings are borrowed & linked. The chain of rings is in audience view at all times until it is clear each volunteer that loaned a ring gets a close look. No switches, no stooges, no Himber Ring. For those who haven't ordered yet, please be aware this book will improve your sex life dramatically. After only a few pages you will begin to feel intelligent, charming, & clever, then aroused, then funny. & after a few chapters, whatever personal or health problems you are experiencing will immediately vanish.

"A life's worth of advice & material-it is a #&*@$!^% bargain." - John Lovick "So what we have here is a remarkable guidebook to the professional performance of comedy stage magic, written-from the heart as well as the mind-by a successful veteran working pro who is also one of the most original & creative magicians of his generation. With unusual frankness as well as expertise-and in a distinctively stylistic & comedic voice-you receive professional guidance about character, comedy, creativity, originality, presentation & scriptwriting, & no less than a dozen professional caliber audience-tested routines complete with original presentations, featuring three blockbuster pieces, any one of which could become the feature of your show. Is that worth $125? I think it's worth a hell of a lot more, frankly." - Jamy Ian Swiss "Some of Steve Spill's most brilliant routines & funniest stories appear in this book. It is a great read for fans like me & a textbook for comedy magicians who want to learn from the best." - Mac King "There are only a handful of books on magic that contain so many practical & truly commercial routines. A smart performer with a halfway decent personality could probably take just these twelve routines & use them as a basis for a long term & financially successful career in comedy magic." - Nick Lewin "Steve Spill's new book is funny, profane, full of great stories, great advice for performers, great magic thinking, obscenities, crazy tricks, & lots of fun. Don't miss this opportunity to hear some fantastic stories, get some great advice, & learn some funny, unique magic!" - John Carney "Steve Spill has a real winner with his new book. Just get it & learn from one of the top pros of our time. Steve has great ideas & philosophy, & he is a wonderful storyteller." - Jeff McBride "Due to the fact that I'd like to selfishly keep every spurious subtlety, original technique, radical insight, & deeply thoughtful analysis contained herein for myself, I refuse to endorse this book." - Scott Alexander "Anyone even remotely interested in comedy magic should own this book. It is hilarious & informative & it contains insights with some of the greatest routines of our time." - Paul Kozak "Steve is one of the best in the world at developed creative magic & a sustainable career. We should study him - like scientists probing a rat. A very smart, very funny rat... Spill is at a point in life where he knows absolutely everything, & it's all in this book." - Ben Seidman "I've seen Steve perform his 'Himber Free' linking finger ring routine & was fooled by it. Having just read this chapter, I can honestly state that this routine alone is easily worth the price of the entire book to a working pro. I'm guessing some of the other routines are also in that category & look forward to studying them as well, but am already satisfied with the value of my purchase. Thanks for sharing this Steve!" - Richard Hatch "WOW! SO GOOD!" - Peter Samelson
