From the magicopolis.com / magicians only website - about the new Steve Spill book - A PEEK INSIDE –

HOW TO MAKE LOVE THE STEVE SPILL WAY

This work is one of a very tiny handful of books ever published with a specific focus on Stand-up Comedy Magic.

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, twelve examples of my best work – that in one-way or another, have my personal touch.

SECOND, included in every routine is every word, joke, action, and gesture of my presentation. True, not every word, joke, action, and gesture of my presentations will fit you like a glove, or fit every circumstance where you might perform. But I will share with you how to make the routines in this book, or any book, truly yours. 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, and how to develop your own original material.

Ten of the routines have never been published in any form ever before. The two that have, my NEEDLES, over the last decade has been a best-selling fifty-dollar single trick DVD, Confessions of a Needle Swallower. That was a video and this is a book, so now is your chance to cross over to a new dimension in sight and sound, especially if you read that chapter out loud. Added details about the routine are presented here for the first time. My LEMON was published a million years ago - although only somewhat accurately, and without any of the pertinent thinking or logic behind its construction - on a Doc Eason video. Now everything is revealed here, along with added details and features never available before.

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 and performed for Richard Branson and 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, are fooled – but in different ways.

RED & BLUE – a half/dyed color-changing hank routine about Democrats and Republicans that equally makes fun of both donkeys and 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, and tighty-whiteys - that are soiled with lipstick kiss marks and handprints – that’s a surefire recipe for magic that causes a stir in loins and laughter.

LEAF ME ALONE – a Six Card repeat idea done with three leaves and 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 and death certificates with a darkly humorous script and 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 and 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, or 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 and linked. The chain 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, and clever, then aroused, then funny. And after a few chapters, whatever personal or health problems you are experiencing will immediately vanish.
