Scott Alexander - Stand Up Guy Lecture


Scott’s lecture is a sparkling cocktail of time-tested effects, with some of his own clever twists. He will cover the ins-and-outs of serving up a well-rounded stand up show program. He provides you with a recipe of how to blend trick selection with audience engagement, levels of interest, and how to play the small stuff bigger. Scott tips some of his stand up routines with the Chop Cup, Invisible Deck, Ring Flight, and Cards Across. He talks about the importance of opening strong and conveying your personality early with his hilarious Candle to Flower Routine. Scott also teaches some close up magic like his Spitball Bullet Catch and his handling and routine for Card on Ceiling. He covers his newest version of the Russian Roulette plot called Nailed It, and much much more. Scott talks about the importance of using music in your show and just how to do it effectively, and then shows you how to put together a stand up program that is solid and well structured to get you the maximum laughs and wows from your audience. This lecture has something for everyone!
