A fascinating and inspiring journey through the ingenuity of Charlie Frye.


This stunning deluxe oversized hardcover with nearly 300 pages playfully captures the spirit of one of the industry's hardest working entertainers. Charlie Frye has been performing on stages on six continents for more than forty years, and Slightly Ridiculous contains more than fifty of his most cherished and hard-won secrets.


Charlie isn't one to share his beloved creations very often. That's why owning a copy filled with his unique whims and wonders is a special treat. You'll really get to know the details of this unrivalled magic digitizer.


All types of magicians have advanced expertise. Reflections on coins and cards are both mundane and extraordinary, including a fascinating essay on the ACAAN plot. And, of course, there are all sorts of parlour and stage effects. These include three versions of "The Oldest Trick in the Book"; Frye's signature quirks (cartoon illustrations of hilarity, tricks, and stunts); the miracle of mind-reading; close-up dice tricks; and more.


All types of material for all skill levels. Slightly Ridiculous offers something for everyone.


Slightly Ridiculous is a hilarious memoir and a collection of thought-provoking pieces on character development, practice, and other practical issues for the modern entertainer. It's a must-read for anyone who takes their craft seriously.


We would be remiss if we didn't mention that the work itself is a work of art. No effort has been spared to create this beautifully handcrafted piece, and it is truly something to learn from. A huge behemoth full of magic and trickery filled with over 1,000 photographs. There is indeed no equal!


"Here you will find carefully crafted and wonderfully presented magic. Don't just absorb all this wonderful magic; absorb his artist ethic, his professional skill, and be inspired by his process. This is where craftsmanship approaches the lofty title of ""The Art."" My Closer recommendation." John Carney


"Every once in a while you come across someone in your life who is very, very good at everything they do. It's annoying. Charlie Frye makes everything look smart, funny, and effortless. He's a master in every way. He has spent years developing an impressive collection of wonderful material. Study the man, learn how he thinks, rehearses, morals and performs. Get inside his head. It will make you a better performer. If you're lucky enough to have a friend like Charlie, who leads by example as I do, he will make you a better person. This book is a great place to start." Kevin James
