When you buy a DVD called "Comedy Routines" you expect that the author/performer of said DVD is an expert on comedy. In my opinion, Mr. Fore is far from an expert. Unless the definition of an expert is someone who uses the same hackneyed lines that every single other magician on the planet uses. I'll take that pen back. That's how I got it . . . really . . . that one again?
Mr. Fore's a super nice guy and is an ok performer, but he's way too rambly and is a "let me tell you what I'm gonna do" kind of performer. His entire presentation is him telling you what he's gonna do . . . "Ok what were gonna do is this . . . then we're gonna take this and do that . . . then we'll move this over here." ARGHHHHHHHHH Let me outta here! If you're looking for some new comedy ideas, this probably isn't the best place to look. If you're looking to learn how to do some tricks, this isn't the best place to look. He uses mostly marketed props (other people's props) and doesn't not really teach much of anything regarding method.
There are a few exceptions, but mostly you see him perform a less than decent performance at a distance in front of a live audience recorded with a tripod and know close up. Then you go behind the scenes where he tells you "that trick used this prop, and you saw the presentation already so that's it."
Much of his "comedy" is at the expense of the audience members and he tends to wander around the stage quite a bit. In many of the effects, he walks back and forth between two or three tables on the stage that are not next to each other. There's a lot of turning his back on his audience, etc. He's just not a polished performer. I have a hard time with someone as unpolished as he is portraying himself as an expert on comedy.
Of course there were moments where the audience laughed even if the joke was hackneyed and he did have a few tips that the working pro may find useful. There is a lot of material on the DVD and you see him perform the following effects:
* Cut and Restored Tie
* Silk To Egg
* Burnt Money
* Coin in Bottle
* Arm Chopper
* Card Duck
* Chinese Sticks
* Mutilated Parasol
* Chair Suspension
* Sucker Sliding Disk (like a die box)
. . . and a couple of other things. I will say, that he has a pretty decent handling for the Coin in Bottle and Silk to Egg . . . a couple of really good utility moves. He also did have a couple of funny gags in the Arm Chopper routine. The Chair Suspension was, in my opinion, the best thing on the DVD. He had some really great gags and lines. The presentation was pretty solid. All in all, if you're looking for a solid study of comedy magic, get the three-pack Michael Finney set from L&L Publishing and pass on this.Because there are a couple of decent moments in this DVD, I can't fully call it rubble, so will give the official "mostly rubble" label of "Grubble."

This dvd is filled with routines for both adult and family shows. There is nothing earth shattering but there is a lot of nice routines for the old favourites. Matt is also a nice guy that has answered a couple questions that I had.

MAtt is a true pro. I've seen MAtt perform his act in person. I've also attended his live lectures. Everyone will benefit from watching this DVD. MAtt offers well-developed professional routines that make people cry. You will definitely steal something from Mat's routine.
Must have for comedy Report this review

This DVD has gotten some bad reviews. That's a shame. If you like comedy magic, you should add this to your collection. There are many things to be learned from this DVD. I have a number of really good oomedy DVDs and this is one of them.
Not my favorite Report this review

This DVD is just OK. I was a bit disapointed in the material presented and the camera work was a bit amatureish. I am always on the look out for good comedy material and although there was a good tip or two in this DVD I was disapointed overall.

Matt Fore has a slow style, and it works well for him. He shares some really funny routines, including , Cut and restored neck tie, Silk to Egg,Chinese Sticks, Mutilated Parasol, Coin in Bottle, Sliding Disk, Arm Chopper and more all with hints and suggestions for handling. Matt is a real funny Guy! I'm happy I bought the dvd.

If Don Knotts had a brother doing Magic Matt Fore would be the brother ! He's a real funny guy ! His performance and explanations are wonderful. Some memorable effects were Cut & Restored Tie, Silk to Egg, Coin in Bottle, Arm Chopper and the Chinese Sticks and others all very funny. I'm very happy that I bought this dvd.
