There are so many wonderful things going for Mel Mellers: The Travelling Trickster published by MagicSeen Magazine (Europe’s #1 magic magazine)! UK comedy magician Mellers is well-loved and well-respected, and this book is obviously a great labour of love. Let me now share why I think it’s worth your investment 😉

It’s an easy and enjoyable read (148 pages with lots of pictures), one which I thoroughly relished cover to cover. Finishing the book for me honestly felt like I’d just had a lunch with Mr Mellers, who so kindly shared handy tips and professional advice gleaned from a lifetime as a solid working performer.

I especially enjoyed his short and sweet sharing of topics like handling hecklers, misdirection, putting an act together, creativity and comedy. The book is packed full of effects as well, truly well worth its listed price. Entertainers who work the kids/ family circuits would especially find this book and the routines within extra useful!

Millers has achieved much success in the UK as a comedy magician over the years, having honed that sweet balance of mastering entertaining magic that amazes people, and possessing sharp wit that makes his audience laugh so hard, it leaves a lasting impression. His well-produced book is a clear glimpse into his creative psyche, where revelations of his body of work and experience radiates, beside the generous offerings of magic effects that would especially suit cruise ship workers and family carnival magicians.

If you enjoy his unique brand of humour, there is nothing to dislike about the book. In fact, you’d most likely be compelled to pick up a few of his DVDs after this 😉 I heartily recommended this as an addition to your personal magic library! Thumbs up!
