What are some of the best things to say when you are doing tricks?

You should probably be a little more specific. If you're looking for general comedy, Aldo Colombini has some good books that are pretty inexpensive. I don't own them but I've heard good things.

I am going to read everything on that link that you sent me and I just want to do whatever I can do to make people laugh so I'll check out some of those books that you were talking about.

I know a couple of Aldo's books are now out of print though. I believe Penguin still has them up, but they are out of print (I just tried ordering them(I lost my originals in a fire) and was informed they are out of stock).

Ahh bummer I was going to order those at some point! My local shop may have them in stock though, so I think I'll make it.
