Brad Henderson finally divulges one of his acclaimed feature performance pieces. This is without a doubt the most topical and hilarious booktest on the market today. Plus, The “Satanic” Booktest will fool even the most critical of audiences. How? Because Brad tips every last detail that has gone into making The “Satanic” Booktest the incredible, hilarious piece of magic that it is.

The “Satanic” Booktest is a full 8 minute, tongue in cheek, comedy routine featuring the three most “evil” books ever written, an amazing demonstration of mind reading, and a surprise magical happening which will have your audience’s holding their sides with laughter.

With a handful of books available at any well stocked bookstore, a touch of preparation, and some thoughtful practice, you too can add this feature presentation to your show.

Note: This routine is for the serious professional who wants to add 8 minutes of solid, killer material to their show or the dedicated student who wishes to learn how a truly creative and commercial magical routine is constructed. If you are a dabbler just looking for clever methods to “play with,” The “Satanic” Booktest is not for you. However, if you appreciate masterful scripting and methodological subtlety that borders on the devious, then you need The Satanic Book Test.

What People Are Saying:

“I’ve seen this act performed in front of magicians and lay people, old and young, business conservative to nightlife hipsters – one thing is constant: it always entertains!…I can’t believe he is releasing this piece now when it is at the zenith of its value…The best parts for me are in learning how a worker thinks about the show and the audience. Brad obviously cares a lot for both.” – Sam Haine

    Finally a Book Test that is Entertaining!

    I have owned five different book tests and only performed one of them. The reason is that, with the exception of $link(1142,Lee Woodside’s Dream Revelation), I’ve never really felt that there was much point to them – the methods are often clever (hence their appeal to magicians), but they really lack in entertainment value.

    Brad Henderson has come up with a very funny and amazing book test that draws value and entertainment from the books themselves as well as the final revelation. The Satanic Book Test is clearly a performance piece – you can’t just roll it out the afternoon you receive it, and it does require some careful practice and talent to do it justice. The mechanics are easy to grasp, with plenty of tips and subtleties to handle various situations, but you will need to be confident in your acting abilities to pull it off.

    This is a “good thing” – if more magicians spent time actually rehearsing their shows we would see better performances. I think in the right hands this could easily become the greatest eight minutes of your act. I plan on spending a long time before I roll this out in my act, but I am confident that I will in fact roll it out, which will make it a very good book test indeed!

    As it arrives you get a very well produced 25 page booklet with numerous photos, tips, patter, and subtleties. You will need to purchase the actual books required for the test, but these are readily available.

    Highly recommended if you really want to entertain your audiences, rather than just show a few tricks to your friends.
