An excerpt …

(finding an assistant)

ERIN: Never mind. So can I get a job?

PRESTO: Ah! Only the most skilled hands can work with the Great Professor Presto! Do you have skilled hands?

ERIN: (looking at his hands) Well, this one’s pretty good. This other one’s willing to learn.

PRESTO: Excellent! Excellent! We have a show in five minutes! Get ready!

ERIN: What?

PRESTO: The audience is out there! We must prepare for the Magic Show!

ERIN: But I don’t know what to do!

PRESTO: Never fear! I will teach you as we go! Remember! I am a magician! Presto!

ERIN: Yeah … presto.

(The show goes on.)

PRESTO: .... Watch as the Saw of Death slices him in half! (to Erin) You’re squirming.

ERIN: I can’t help it.

PRESTO: Of course you can. Just think of something else. This won’t hurt. It’s a trick. (to the audience as he begins to saw) The Saw of Death!

ERIN: Hey! That’s my shirt! You cut my shirt!

PRESTO: Sorry. Now hold still! (to the audience) The Saw of death! Sawing! Sawing! (as he saws, he pushes down on Erin’s stomach, causing the two chairs to slide apart and making Erin’s body sag between the chairs) Ohh! Feel the pain!

ERIN: I do!

PRESTO: Not you! The audience! Sawing! Sawing! Sawing! (raises saw as Erin lies there, his rear end sagging between two chairs, covered by an imaginary sheet) Voilà! Professor Presto has done it again! And now! Abracadabra! Chitty-chitty Bang-bang! (as he pushes Erin’s body up and scoots the chairs back together, then pulling off the imaginary sheet) Voilà!

ERIN: I’m alive!

(then the grand finale)

PRESTO: The Fiery Inferno!

ERIN: Oh, no.

PRESTO: What do you mean?

ERIN: I’ve never done it.

PRESTO: Neither have I, but I’ve always wanted to try it.
