I perform my book test “Book-smart.”
This is the second time I’ve repeated an effect at an open mic. I wanted to take another crack at a book test because the first time it wasn’t completely successful. Thankfully it went much better with the second attempt. I thought changing the books available from standard classics to lesser known works I enjoy would give the routine a more personal feel. Still I kept in one of the classics I’m a fan of, which worked out great since it let me add in a kicker at the end.
As for the pen trick I do at the start – that’s a fun way to mess with your friends. Try it out.
