This is one of the most commercial and laugh filled routines in the business. It was the centerpiece of my professional show for many years. I am now passing on the full details of this classic routine for the first time, Every detail of Ken’s routine, plus the many changes, improvements and additions I developed are taught in detail. This performance was one of the keystones of Nick’s career as a corporate magician. 36 years later it is still great and timeless entertainment!
Nick Lewin is One Degree From Ken Brooke and enjoyed six hours of instruction directly from Ken on the Electric Chair and Paper Balls Over Head. “I worked in Ken Brooke’s Magic Place in Wardour Street in London, but paid for every single trick I ever learned.” Ken came in on his only day off, Sunday, to teach me his treasured routine. His notes were invaluable.
Working pros, or anyone who wants to be a commercial working pro, should have this routine in their repertoire.
The information on these two discs contains not only Ken’s routine and personal notes, but all the refinements, additions and improvements that Nick has developed in the 48 years he has been performing it. The meticulous attention to detail in this release, make it the ultimate master class in performing this legendary routine.

“In 1968 I paid 50 Guineas which is worth approximately $1,000 today, and it was worth every British penny,” says Nick Lewin. Ken Brooke taught the Electric Chair and Paper Balls Over Head only to a few individuals, and the routine was NEVER SOLD to the general magic community. He never wrote a manuscript–it was all verbal exchange from mentor to student. All you need are 13 paper napkins, an empty chair, and this routine. It’s a winning combination and a combo that Ken Brooke originated for his personal magic act. The Electric Chair Paper Balls Over Head is a five to eight minute routine of strong magic and audience participation. First you “fool” the audience, then you “fool” your assistant, and the best part is YOU DO NOT NEED, ELECTRIC CHAIR.
Nick explains exactly how to handle each and every aspect of selecting an assistant, and it’s part of the “Packs Flat Plays Big Series” AND the “Emergency No Props Series.” Plays perfectly in a theatre audience of 2,000, a Corporate Event, or Cabaret.
