Read Between the Lines by Gazzo (Book) This one sold out at FISM 2006. A must-have for working pros.
Price: $22.95
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

Gazzo is recognized as one of the world's foremost street entertainers and magicians. For over 25 years he has been performing his unique style of magic throughout the world. From the streets of Boston, USA and London, England to Cruise Ships and Las Vegas, Gazzo is held in high esteem by his fellow professionals and audiences alike.

Much of Gazzo's show uses comedy and humour as a presentation tool. He has been asked many times to share the lines and jokes that make his work both memorable and successful.

Gazzo's Read Between the Lines is a collection of over 500 one liners that can be used for most situations that you will encounter performing at any venue. This is a collection of Gazzo's one liners as well as many from various other artists. Real performers will see the keen value in this collection. A single line from the book used at the right time will more than pay for the price of the book.

This is really a product from Gazzo! I myself was suprised with the variety of lines/jokes in this book, he has a joke for almost anything you need in a street show and even any other sort of show. Only thing I would say is that it is really tempting to use all the lines and become a Gazzo clone haha.

i had high expectations but this wasnt as good as i thought... unless you like offensing ppl on a day to day basis dont get this...most of the jokes were dirty or rude....

on the upside the book did show me how to handle hecklers and blow em out of the water...

there were only about 20 jokes that i might use.....

but if your having trouble with hecklers i recommend this book....

What a Great Resource Report this review

This book is full of jokes, one liners, and presentation tips for the real working performer. There is always something new to learn whenever you open this book. Lines range from kids-adult humor and are very well thought out. My favorite are the one liner jokes!

Great one-liners Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
There are some really great one-liners in this book! If you're looking for some great comedic quotes and one-liners this is the book for you. I would also suggest it to help boost your imagination. You can tweak these to fit your repertoire or your presentation as well! Highly recommended!

Not for everyone Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
No really there is likely something for everyone in this book. He does use some lines that are offensive to some people and you will need to use your head and select the right situation for all your lines including the pearls from this book. Gazzo is a strong character and if you are not then some of these are not for you. Be careful and enjoy.

hmm, undecided Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 8th, 2010
Not sure if I like it.

Material: some funny stuff, but have to pick through it to find what suites you. Didn't think alot of it was that good

Presentation: disappointing, nice glossy pages but then a cardboard cover makes it look cheap. few typos

Not sure it's worth the money. If I had my chance again I probably wouldn't buy it and maybe just research some one-liners for free on the internet. If you've seen any of Gazzo's performances, he uses most of the good lines there, so didn't get anything extra from the book.

Don't be discouraged if this book is mean or racy. Trust me if you work out in the real world you will face a lot of a$$holes who heckle to a point were it is at everyones expense even your show. It is good to know some of the jokes in this book they will give you a reputation as a guy not to mess with.

funny stuff from G to PG to R Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Gazzo and I have never met but we love working on the street, where funny stuff happens and audiences like funny stuff. My character is gentle, but Gazzo is cheeky. The jokes in this book range from g-rated and clever to raunchy-LOL that's not-my-style. There is enough usable stuff in this small-page-sized and fully packed booklet to please anyone looking for some great lines. One I've used for when someone walks between me and the audience: "Don't worry, sir. It's just a stage you're walking through." I gave not five stars because for me too much of the material was on the cheeky side and one has to have a certain thick skin, which my character doesn't have, which most characters don't have, to use these convincingly. Gazzo is one of a kind, and he does have some funny things to say!
