Supermag is a lousy magician, but has a very pretty asistant. He is mixing a deck of cards and they fall from his hands. He spends time collecting them.
He talks to the cameraman explaining how to fix the mishap: combine a video played backwards to the video of the accident card fall. We later see the fixed video, where the magician has his cards go back to his hand.
The cameraman will be part of many other episodes, because he can cut and paste film to make “magic” tricks, like the assistant disappearance.
He invites someone from the public to select a card. He takes the card and puts it back in the deck, but both forget which card it was. The asistant smiles all the time at the crowd and is unable to help.

Brief humor TV Script
This is a sample of my humor creativity for TV. One out the 100 scripts writen by Serapio Sergiovich, addressed to TV producers. Intended to be produced and distributed in the Web as well as in TV. Short humor videos are suitable for fast, viral marketing and promotion in the social networks.

He drops whiskey on his shirt, rolls differently his sleeves, keeps cigarettes visible in his shirt pocket, lets his hair go untidy. He drops the microphone and they have to fix it with duct tape. Continue reading →

From the controlling room a sound technician makes exagerated gestures to him, warning about the loud noise of the crunchy potato chip.
The journalist, very carefully, breaks down a chip with his fingers and takes a very small piece to his mouth. Again, a loud:
