Product Description

148 pages, softback, produced in color throughout and featuring routines, comedy lines and advice from the UK's top comedy performer

With his hilariously sharp yet playful put down lines and quirky comedy plots, Mel Mellers has rightly established himself as one of the nation's favorite stand up performers. Equally at home in front of lay people or a theater full of magicians, Mel's individual performance style, which has been honed over many years as a pro and through countless performances all over the world, is a delight to experience.

Now you can go behind the scenes with this truly inspiring performer and learn how you too can become a top flight entertainer. Mel gives freely of his advice on all aspects of performance, including audience management, misdirection, how to put an act together, creativity, the 6 rules of comedy, practising, hecklers and entertaining children and families. He shares with you scores of hilarious one liners covering all manners of performing situations that you will be able to use in your shows too. Plus he gives full details of over 50 of his feature routines and ideas, most of which are simple to do and which come with Mel's presentations and patter lines.

Mel Mellers is one of magic's real larger-than-life characters, and this book will also explain some of his background, give you various anecdotes from his closest friends in magic about the antics that Mel has gotten into over the years, and will provide you with a thoroughly entertaining and instructive read.
