A multi-talented writer, comedian, and television host, Rick Bronson is the go-to guy, the consultant for, and the confidant of some of Canada's finest magicians. The Tourist, a television series he created, hosted and co-wrote, is now a hit in 22 countries, and his recent national comedy special, Comedy Now Presents Rick Bronson, was among the highest rated in Canadian history! This book, Rick's first, contains a choice selection of magic from his stand-up act., and a handful of close-up miracles from his apres-show repertoire!
- Big Time: The magician's hand becomes an impromptu magnifying glass, enlarging the print on a chosen card, and ultimately upsizing the entire deck!
- Lighter Than Air: A borrowed lighter is used for a quick and funny gag, then suddenly vanishes in a flash of fire!
- Missing Ink: A stack of blank business cards prints between your palms!
- Needle Through What?: A family-friendly presentation of the Needle through balloon goes horribly awry, resulting in the mutilation and (eventually) restoration of the magician!
- Ricky Bottles: Rick's closer for over ten years, and one of the best Tricky Bottle routines EVER!
