I have never read a review on this book but I was considering picking it up. Does anyone own it? If so, what kind of jokes, one-liners are in it? Are the lines and jokes geared towards particular age groups or magic genres? Is it varied? Any comments are appreciated.

I have it.
It has quite some funny one-liners. Some could have been left out, but most of 'em are good.
If you're looking for a collection of funny one-liners for magicians, get it.

Thanks for the tip Gerben. Been wondering out this book too. There are a few books out there with jokes for magicians. Can anyone recommend some good ones in addition to the Colombini book? (Incidentally he has put out at least two books on patter lines. Which one is best.)

I have it. There are some great lines in there. I bought it after seeing Aldo at the Magi Fest. He is hillarious but remember, his personality is what makes these lines funny. If you are not funny to begin with, these lines will not make you funny.

A little too thin but good lines in there. For $10 I think you should take a shot. Some lines are original some of course stolen or borrowed from others but very, very useful.

I just received it in the mail last night. While there are some funny lines in it, this "book" would have been much more accurately described as a pamphlet. The thing is nothing more than a few 8.5" x 11" piece of cheap paper folded in half and saddle-stitched (stapled). Very thin and cheap, but a few funny lines. Overall, I wish the book was of higher quality or the price was a few bucks lower.

Harry Allens book " Sleight of Mouth" is my
pick of the one liner books.
At 180 odd pages for $20 , its also good value
for Your money too. Smile
