Dan Tong: FINALLY! - 50 Years Of Magic Vol. 2
I use Dan Tong's Chop Cup routine in my strolling and restaurant work. I had long looked for a chop cup routine that I liked and Tong's version is quick and powerful and offers a strong switch that strengthens the routine and minimizes the gimmick. Page 5.

Daryl's Amazing Acrobatic Knot
This is a wonderful, stand-up routine is now a regular part of my grown-up act. Page 13.

My Favorite DVDs and Tricks
Here's a list of the tricks and DVDs that I have reviewed and use in my strolling and stand-up sets. There's a definite leaning towards close-up routines for my restaurant work, which I do a lot of, and less for stand-up because my act is fairly mature. But here are my favorites that I currently use. Page 15.

Stand-Up Magic For Kids
Bill Abbott's excellent

The Killer Kitson Miracle
This is a fantastic routine to perform when your close-up audience members are standing. I often use Bob Sheet's three-card monte themed trick at cocktail parties. Page 11.

Magic by Bob Sheets
Years ago, when I was working as an entertainment writer and before I got into magic, I was reviewing Steven Spill's magic theater in Santa Monica, California for a local publication. There I got to see Bob Sheets in action and I've been a fan ever since. He's baffling. He's funny. And audiences love him. Page 2.

Bar Magic - All About Bar Magic

Rocky Mountain Magic
From 1977 to 2004, the legendary Doc Eason was the featured magician at the Tower Comedy/Magic Bar in Snowmass Village, CO. This title, a DVD re-release of the 1990 video of same name, depicts a magical evening at the Tower some 16 years ago. And the disc offers a tantalizing bonus, commentary by Eason himself. Page 5.

Decks, Lies and Videotape-Brent Braun
