Inspired by Milbourne Christopher’s “Hi-Sign” and other variations on the Crazy Compass or Magic Road Sign Routine, this is Jonathan Royle’s hilarious, fast-paced, family-friendly comedy script for this rarely seen classic of magic.
Royle has also brought it right up to date by the addition of two different Comedy Road Sign endings — these unexpectedly appear where the arrows on each side of the sign once were.
This is now the perfect and hugely flexible 5-to 8-minute, laughter-packed opening routine to warm up your audiences for the rest of your show.
All of the one-liner jokes included within the script have been audience-tested for many years, and have consistently proven themselves to be huge laugh makers.
This unique routine is focused around the problems you, the magician, have had trying to get to the show today. The jokes are all about the many nightmares you encountered along the way.
As the arrow on the sign keeps magically changing direction, it does so in sync with the jokes within the script. This helps to visually emphasize those lines, thereby making them even funnier!
In addition to the step-by-step script, you are also supplied with numerous other related one-liner jokes which, should you desire, can easily be inserted into the routine. Thus, you are left with a “vehicle” to perform a full, 15-minute act.
Some “Adults Only” one-liners are also included as a bonus which, when the occasion is right (no children!), could also be added.
You are supplied with the custom designed artwork in three sizes, 8cm by 8cm for close-up, 15cm by 15cm for parlour shows, and 25cm by 25cm which is ideal for even the biggest stages and venues.
The enclosed PDF instructions and detailed comedy script also include a link to a training video. Combining the video with the various included photographs should easily enable you to make your own On The Way Here Tonight comedy road sign gimmick for use with this routine.
This is a real professional “workers” routine, and an absolute steal at this price.
NOTE — The two comedy road sign endings to On the Way Here Tonight are very different images from the two visual road sign changes used in Royle’s adults-only Crazy Compass Routine entitled “Fore-Play.”
