Kent,

Thanks a lot. That list will keep me busy for a while.

You ever notice that whenever someone wants to "make their show better" all they ever think of is new tricks to buy? Why doesn't anyone ever think to buy a book or a video on how to entertain children? There are tons of them out there, and many of them are written by the leading experts in the field.

Excelent points, a good friend of mine, Darryl Hutton said to me: The entertainment in in you, the props are just there to help.

It is a very good point, you could take the worst, cheepest magic trick and make it great, but, you can also take a great magic tricks and make it look horriable.


Food for thought, Sam Pearce

I don't know what I could add to what Magicman845 and Kyle said, but everything they said is true.
Forget about performing magic, that is not the show. YOU are the show!
The coloring book is one of the cheapest easiest items to use, but with the right skit you can have the kids rolling.
Once again, it's not the magic these kids give a crap about, it's all the fun stuff that happens along the way.
Silly Billy's book really shows you how to add that funny in your show. Another book that I think is very helpful is "The Birthday Party Business" it's written by several people in the industry.
If you can perform the magic you are on your way.. but that's the easy part, now perform with it.

For books, I would recommend:

1. Seriously Silly by David Kaye (aka Silly Billy)
2. Professional Magic for Children by David Ginn
3. Creative Kidtalk by David Ginn, Sammy Smith and Patrick Taylor

For videos:
1. There is a vidoe out there by Ken Scott that's very good, but the name escapes me at the moment
3. Kidzbiz video series by David Ginn is also excellent

Kent



I'd recommend any tricks that will keep the kids entertained! Entertainment for kids is 50% of the battle! :lol: I'd also recommend some tricks on www.magicianschool.com. They have some good street tricks that you could incorporate.
