Tannen's is proud to announce the launch of our brand new Book Club! Join your favorite magic authors each month on Zoom to discuss their books. If you own a copy of our next meeting's book, attending Book Club is completely free! If you need a copy, we have some available.
We're thrilled that our friend John Lovick (Handsome Jack) will be joining us for our next Book Club meeting. He will be discussing his book, Handsome Jack, Etc., which details twenty stand-up and close-up routines with complete scripts, histories, and commentary on their development and performance. In addition to Jack's urbane descriptions, Lovick provides two essential essays on the subjects of scripting and persona.
Handsome Jack, Etc.
Written by male model/master magician Handsome Jack (with footnotes by John Lovick), this treatise is a rarity in the magic world: it's as funny (and attractive) as it is instructive.
