Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forget YouTube. Now you can amuse and embarrass yourself live, by performing the silliest, stupidest, funniest pranks and parlor tricks right in the comfort of your own living room. Or better yet, at any fancy restaurant, cocktail party, classroom, or business meeting. Even a doctor's office. (Here's an idea: Hide a tennis ball in your armpit during a checkup, and just as the doctor is about to take your pulse, squeeze it hard. The pulse in your wrist will stop!)

Created by a professional musician who figured out a unique way to stay amused on the road, Stuntology is a collection of more than 300 off-the-wall ideas for activities that the author affectionately calls stunts. Each is illustrated step-by-step in a charmingly folk-art comic-strip style, and every one works. Here's the Open a Beer with Your Eye Socket Stunt. The Balance a Teacup on the Point of a Knife Stunt. The Eat Like a Lizard Stunt (best performed at an important lunch meeting). Here's the best way to talk to a telemarketer--in pure gibberish. The Medicine Cabinet Stunt, to capture nosy guests. And a Salami Stunt, not to be tried unless you are profoundly bored. The best part is, this is a funny, funny book--goofy, inspired, and filled with an irresistible irreverence, a pure and rare delight even if you don't perform a single stunt.

Synopsis:

Created by a professional musician as a way to amuse himself, "Stuntology" is a collection of more than 300 goofy, inspired, and irresistibly irreverent pranks and tricks, each illustrated in a charming folk-art, comic-strip style.

Synopsis:

Stupefy your best friend. Flabbergast your relatives. Go out on a limb and test your boss's sense of humor. You may even get your mother-in-law to stop speaking to you...From master trickster Sam Bartlett comes a lifetime's collection of inspired pranks and parlor tricks. Stuff that will make you either the funniest person in the room, or that jerk with another annoying practical joke.  Hey, probably both--these stunts are fun.
