“I just finished reading your book “Finding the Funny” and I felt compelled to thank you.
Wow, what a wonderful piece of work. I have often been asked about how one can be – or appear to be – more spontaneous when performing magic. I’ve never had a good answer except to say you need to perform as much as possible and gain “flight time” experience. I appreciate that your book breaks down into easy to digest steps something that I feel I’ve been doing naturally my whole life.
I particularly enjoyed how you reworked potentially insulting standard Invisible Deck lines into new pieces that are actually complimentary to the assisting spectator. Jolly well done!”
