Wayne Dobson's Exchange (better know as the sex trick)
Once in a while an effect comes alone with a presentation so funny in its own right that all you have to do it perform it and you're guaranteed laughs.
Wayne's Exchange (better known as the SEX trick) is one of those routines. The simple presentation and method makes this a perfect & hilarious routine that can be performed close up, parlour & stage and it's even ideal for compares and MC's.
Exchange is the ultimate packs small plays big routine. Please note the routine itself is adult themed but can be played as innocent or as blue as you like.
When our good friend Michael J Fitch performed Exchange at Blackpool we had waves of people asking for a release date, Well now it's here!
Waynes Exchange is a play on words you will love and it's a guaranteed crowd please that you WILL add to your act!
Wayne's Exchange comes with high quality plastic cards, routine and DVD instructions. **Please note by purchasing this product you are purchasing the rights to perform Wayne Dobson's Exchange!

I love Wayne Dobson. I love what he does. But this is a total misfire. I'll say this: If you've got a comedy act, and based on the demo put forth you conclude this will be a perfect addition to said act. i guarantee your act isn't as funny as you perhaps hope.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I know the curtain is pulled back for me when it comes to comedy. I'm jaded. I get it. So take this all with a grain of salt: I perform most my non corporate shows in a town where you can throw a rock and hit 50 comedy theaters and 70 improvisational venues. Places with fresh voices and original points of view. Given that, I can't imagine a scenario where I would attempt this without apologizing before during and after. Make no mistake I'm not above goofy, absurd, even moronic material. I love it. As long as it's in service of something and has a semblance of logic (even absurd logic) As written and performed this is not only illogical, it's anticlimactic, predictable, repetitive, and worst of all, antithetical to my understanding of this art.
I'm also gobsmacked at the arrogance of the creators. Are they REALLY under the impression they invented the "wacky misunderstanding" storytelling device? I'm pretty sure that tired premise platued midway through the first season of "Three's Company."
Are you ok with a paper thin sitcom plot where 2 dimensional characters deliver the same weathered joke ad nauseam. All the while forcing their scene parters to regurgitate one word payoffs to set up lines no one would ever say? If so this is for you.
To be fair: A lot of it suffers in the presentation. (and I know all involved are MUCH better) I could see how this premise could work with a lot of script doctoring and a 180 redirect of the performance. A performer with seasoned acting chops playing it totally straight might pull it off. I could see a performer slowing starting to stutter and stammering his way through his normally foolproof patter. Frazzled at first, but inching ever closer to a nervous breakdown with each utterance. All (of course) without the slightest idea anything funny is going on. Certainly without pooching the joke (such as it is) right out of the gate and NEVER mugging to the audience as if to say "look how clever all this is?" The second the performer does a take, winks, or shows even a twinkle of insincerity, it's sunk. Also it doesn't seem to occur to anything that the instant he writes "sex" on the card everyone is going to know where it's going. The bit is over. The effect is over. Not a person in that (or ANY crowd ever) thinks she's thinking about sex from that moment on. So they are looking for the twist that never comes. You owe them a lot more than "eat, and I knew it all along!" don't you think? That's not a payoff, it's a blowoff.
As presented it's a soulless, witless, unispired mess. (and I am the idiot that fought this sight unseen) Boring at best. Misogynistic at worst. And make no mistake, that's what this is. A performer takes a (willing) female volunteer and turns her into the butt of his non-joke. All while crawling at a snails pace toward an ending the audience arrived at long ago. Some may be holding out hope a surprise ending. I guess "that was it?" is a kind of surprise.
Full disclosure, I bought this sight unseen. I'm an idiot and I deserve what I get.

You can't go wrong with this routine, perfect for parlour, stage and even close-up (which the DVD also covers). This is not about baffling magic (although the method will indeed fool people), it is about a perfect comedy routine that will always get laughs - this is the sort of piece that gets you rebooked - it's simply that good. Bravo Wayne!

Sure this trick is a little risque, but it is entertainment gold! Once you buy this trick, and therefore the performance rights, you can tailor it to your audience. It's very easy to do, and so therefore you can concentrate on the performance.
I performed it for my company's Christmas party and it went over quite well!
Wayne Dobson is very creative. Report this review

I Did this routine last week for the first time and it absolutely kills. It's hilarious and gives a great wow moment at the end. The cards supplied are better or at least as good than regular bikes IMO, because they are ply-able stock and have a better plastic coating. They don't look like playing cards either which is a plus for an effect like this. I do think that they can smudge on the backs easily with fingerprints but no one but one person on stage sees the backs of the cards for a few seconds of time. The cards are not heavily scrutinized at all. I love this routine and if you want to add a very easy to do effect that can guarantee you to not only get laughs but get the audience on your side I highly recommend this.
