If you are into comedy magic and you don't already know who Scott Alexander is, you are missing out!

matterial. Well boys and girls this one is a lacture full of tricks and ideas, so you have no
I am sure that you will enjoy it and that there will be something for everybody.
My only compain is I wish there were some songs in this one too!!!
