Essence Comedy in Theory & Practice

aanewz06

Comedy is a serious business. As in Magic in the Mirror, Comedy Laughs are provoked, but beneath the obvious chatter and trivial pursuits, Great Truths prevail, and the audience is open to the Uplifting Force, an as-yet unknown major player in the Quantum Dimensions.

Comedy is a great way to penetrate past the defenses and get to the core, and can be used to slide up the scale of Being to the God State. As you climb the dimensions, the nature of your problems will change, but the problems will never completely go away.

Here are a few of the subjects we’ll be covering in next week’s upcoming Comedy Workshop, to be held both in-person and online (both are available) on Memorial Day Weekend, May 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th: Continue reading

Here’s the Magic Show:

The Golden Buddha Floating Ball Effect

Here’s the breakdown of the effects that are available for a performance. This is not the complete act, as there are about a dozen and a half CLOSEUP effects as well. After you’ve shown mastery of the French Drop by posting a selfie video on youtube or by showing me in person at a workshop that you’ve arrived on the shores of Buddha’s Magic Land, you can learn any of the following effects in whatever order you’d like. The list is ordered according to the difficulty level.

THESE ARE STRICTLY CLUB AND LARGE STAGE ILLUSIONS & EFFECTS:

  1. FRENCH DROP — $39.95
  2. ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS DIMENSION SLIDER — $39.95
  3. THUMBS UP SALT OF ST. PETER — $39.95
  4. HEALING SPIRIT LIGHTS — $69.95
  5. AMAZING RAINBOW SILK DIMENSIONAL SHIFTER — $69.95
  6. GOLDEN BUDDHA LEVITATION — $89.95
  7. 2,000 YEAR OLD MYSTERY OF THE CHINESE LINKING RINGS — $39.95
  8. AMAZING FOLDING BANDANA — $69.95
  9. SILK TO EGG TRANSFORMATION — $139.95

… And these effects are reserved for the time when you decide to go pro:

  • PRO-GRADE 10″ CHINESE LINKING RING SET & ROUTINE — $139.95
  • PROFESSIONAL GRADE 11-FOOT-LONG LINKING ROPE RINGS ROUTINE — $139.95
  • SPIRIT LIGHTS MISER’S DREAM BOUTIQUE BAG — $225.00
  • VICTORIAN VINTAGE SPIRIT COMMUNICATION SLATES — $225.00
  • OLD WEST SPIRIT TELEGRAPH — $650.00
  • HOUDINI VICTORIAN SEANCE SPIRIT BELL — $650
  • GHOST-HUNTER SPIRIT DETECTOR & COMMUNICATOR — $225.00
  • DAYLIGHT SEANCE SPIRIT TAMBOURINE — $225.00
  • INCREDIBLE DINNER JACKET ESCAPE — $225.00
  • OPEN-AIR CHEN-RIG LEVITATION — $650.00
  • FAME-MAKER HEADLINE PREDICTION — $225.00

 

Those are the routines I typically will use in my Magic of Believing Act. Note that each “trick” comes as a routine, with an instructional and performance DVD to help you learn. Under NO circumstances will you need to develop special handling skills, so no worries.

There are cheaper versions of all these effects, but mine is top quality, and you get a solid class on how to perform the effect for work purposes, not merely entertainment, so there’s a whole world of professionalism here. You get what you pay for, and must pay for what you get.

Can you earn a livelihood from this? Just look at all the folks who have done it successfully, and you’ll be amazed, astounded and encouraged!!!

The Club Style Effects are best for large groups and some distance from the audience, as in a Birthday Party, End of Life Celebration, Wedding Reception, Post-Burial Wake, and indeed any social occasion, magic fits in and makes things wonder-ful.

You’ll find so many applications for your magical skills, but the best feature of all is that SOMETIMES THE MAGIC ACTUALLY WORKS.

This is the Holy Grail of Performance Magic, and happens for most folks only once, twice or never. For you, this can be a CONSTANT SUCCESS, because you’ll know the secret, how to make the magic actually work.

Of course it won’t work every single time, nor probably the first time you try, which is the American Dream — that you won’t ever need skills and don’t even have to actually try, because it’s all free, it’s all instant and it’s all yours, for only $99 down, $99 a month for the next seven generations.

Don’t be fooled by that zombie dream. It takes hard work to find The World of Magic, which is called, in the New Testament, “The Kingdom”, that world right in front of your eyes that you can’t see.

But when you learn to see it, it’s the only world worth living in.

I highly recommend living in a Higher Plane, and this is definitely THE way to do it. Performance Magic will literally LIFT YOU OUT OF THIS WORLD. You WILL experience a Higher Plane from time to time, and when you learn and master the Secret, you WILL EXPERIENCE LIFE ON A HIGHER PLANE ALL DAY LONG. Continue reading

Bob & Ray Explain the Komodo Dragon — early radio broadcast

Betcha you can’t listen and not laugh, but this is what most human conversations actually sound like, if you listen really carefully.

Had not Stan Freberg done this “Broadway show without a stage” — meaning that it might have had a chance as a stage show, but it never made the grade or found the sponsorship, I suspect, as it was wildly advanced thinking for its day — you’d never know the real stories behind the United States. At last, you can hear the truth, as only Freberg can tell it, and there’s adequate and funny music, too. As a matter of fact, there’s tap-dancing, and considering that this is a record, not an actual show, it might be the first time someone danced on an audio-only product. We did it on KVMR a number of years back, with sacred dance and music on radio only, no tv, but we did have a live audience of over 350 that day.

There are AT LEAST 11 parts from this first volume of Stan Freberg’s United States of America on youtube. Find out more about Freberg…who was he? What did he do? Why did he do it? Then what happened?

See You At The Top!!!

Beautiful Black & Blue Danube Waltz

Yep, I just couldn’t resist taking a few moments from my HAPI drumming class live on www.//justin.tv/gorebaggtv to post this extra-funny Spike Jones sendup of the famous Blue Danube, which most folks today associate with the Earth to Moon travel in 2001 A Space Odyssey. Here it is…get a good grip on the arms of your favorite chair before you press the “play” button:

It Don’t Take Much

Here you have it; proof positive that intelligent life does not yet exist on Earth. This stunningly pretty ditherhead — on some pharmaceutical that tends to slur speech and scramble the brains like three jumbo eggs in heavily buttered frying pan — made a video that garnered 1.3 million views, and rising … I’ll bet you can’t sit through the whole thing without laughing at least once. I tend to stare at the whole Vampira-like effect with awe and admiration at this plucky youngster, with nothing more to worry about than the cost of a peroxide rinse.
