Hiya guys, I would like to piece together a stand up comedy magic show based around married life. I have a few effects in minds and a few excellent lines too. Was thinking of opening with appearing broom and by saying that my wife has got me well trained etc.
Does anyone have any ideas about possible other effects I could adapt to this sort of theme, thanks in advance

I use stories from my own life...and have strayed..from stock lines such as

3 ring circus....ending in suffering..I am blessed to have a wonderful supportive wife...who happens to be Catholic...I am Jewish/Christian..which lead to instant harmony at the Passover Meal....

Lately we have added Honey Can'ts instead of Honey Do's ..thus leading to fix it stories...

Ropes, large bolts..and screws..ala Doc Eason 2 in the hand...

Producing a battery powedered screw driver..and tales of putting up the window blinds...blind fold bits...

Spilled Min Wax...story might lead to a sealed can / one cup routine...

in other words use your own stories to lead you to your magic...and your own comedy...early on made the error of using others material..which led to a lesson from other comics...(back when I had hair...and less ethics..now more ethics less hair..now it is on my back and nose....

Rices silks "Mister and Misses Green" its quick but fun.
How about the Red And white rope mystery, How about a ring and rope routine?

A mentor is really what's needed.

Andy,

Any money-related tricks are good for jokes with a married couple. You can talk about how they handle money. Who's in charge of the check book, etc. Their responses onstage can be very funny.

I used to do the Kap's Eleven Dollar Bill trick with a married couple.

The spilled min wax (on the carpet) is a true story...

I told it again during last nights Nursing Appreciation after dinner talk.

Ha ha, thanks guys, I was actually thinking of doing misers dream, and base it around when I got married in vegas, you have to tip everyone loads of money at that place!! I shall tell the story whilst producing coin after coin and say something like " my mrs thinks I am made of money"!!!
