Great Lecture minus the infomercials Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2013
Let me first say that I really enjoyed Danny's lecture. I read his cover story in Genii magazine back in march and knew I wanted to attend. I was not disappointed at all. He spoke from experience and gave the rest of us some very sage advice and pitfalls to steer away from.
I am primarily a children's entertainer and found this lecture far more valuable than the dozens (yes, dozens) of lectures on cards. Thanks to penguin for going outside the box and bringing in an expert on a field other than cards or coins. Bravo!
My only criticism is that there were too many times Danny was plugging other products of his for sale on "his" website. I understand an occasional plug here and there, but at times (for me) it got a little excessive. No less than 6 products He talked about and plugged for a while during the lecture. I bought the lecture for the content, theory and sound advice on effects to perform for children, not to sit through an informercial. It got to be a little frustrating after the 4th blatant plug for his products.
Dan Harlan did a great job moderating the lecture and kept the interview discussions on point. I learned a lot during that portion, so kudos to Him..
In all, great lecture. Definitely worth the buy. Just be prepared for multiple commercial breaks ;)
Excellent Lecture! Report this review

Danny presented quite the lecture on presenting magic to children. The bits of business and doing the little things make a huge difference.
The Vanishing Crayons taught in this lecture is way more visual than the marketed version sold in magic shops. The crayons vanish while being held by the child! I will be replacing my vanishing crayons right away, and I will only use Danny's.
Do want to know how to keep parents from talking in the back of the room while you are performing? Well, Danny has the PERFECT solution without saying a word, or stopping the show! It's funny but at the same time discrete and a professional way to do it.
There are also PDF's included with the lecture. So, at home you can make the props that were used in the lecture. (including his tear-apart magic table).
Danny shares some basic but effective marketing ideas at the end of the lecture.
I cannot recommend this enough Report this review

You have to get it, this lecture is worth its price even if Danny didn't do any tricks, and just talked about kids psychology, you need to get this, this is something that everyone needs to learn.
Not just for kid show entertainers Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 26th, 2013
The lecture was 3 1/2 hours! This was an incredible lecture and very inspiring. The techniques can be translated for any audience.
Danny said he made more money his Senior year in high school doing magic shows than he made his first year as a teacher. No wonder after two years of teaching he became a full time performer;-)
Danny went over tricks, audience management ( kids and adults ) marketing, promotions, etc.
What Danny taught can be applied to ANY type of show and techniques that work for hobbyists as well!
Pretty Much Everything You Need Report this review

This lecture was the whole package. There isn't too much available as far as instruction on how to cater to a child audience. This lecture covered everything. Danny Orleans also offered his own product at a discounted rate for purchasing this lecture. If you have an interest in performing for children this this lecture combined with "The art of Presenting Magic to Children" are a must.
PRICELESS INFORMATION Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2013
I haven't viewed Danny's lecture in it's entirety, however, his ideas on positive reinforcement really helped me out yesterday. I was hired to do a children's magic show and hadn't done one in quite some time. I used his advice and thoughts on positive reinforcement when/if children do not behave and they worked like a charm. The lady who hired me was so impressed with how I handled the children that she gave me a $100 tip and said she would be having me for next year as well. I'm a big kid myself and actually enjoy performing for children. Anyway, if you do or want to perform for children buy this lecture. I'm also going to buy Danny's dvd set on children's magic because I know it will be very much worth the money.

I don't like to perform just children's shows but you can't avoid kids either. I wish this lecture had been available before my last show, they were a wild bunch.
I've watched this video 3 times now so the next time I'll be prepared with Danny's wisdom of controlling them using positive reinforcement.

One Fantastic Lecture! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2013
Danny Orleans is first-class all the way --- a true professional. This three-and-a-half hour lecture is jam-packed with high-impact effects, advice, thoughts and philosophies; it'd be a complete steal at twice this price. Mr. Orleans recently released an absolutely killer DVD set that's also an outstanding value. This is yet another example of why Penguin's lecture series is one of the very best values in magic today. I can't recommend Danny's lecture highly enough --- whether or not you're in the kid show market, it's a must-see for any magician. Period.
There was too much fluff and not much meat or routines Report this review

(This review is for Danny Orleans LIVE)
No doubt Danny is a good childrens entertainer, yet there was little evidence in the form of routines shown in this lecture. He spent most of the lecture talking about his stickers/ which was a 5 minute discussion at most plus spent lots of wasted time with handing out cards with prewritten questions, which he than repeated again after it had read clearly by an audience member and than had the audacity to say what a great question. Very annoying and a waste of time. For a lecture that ran 3.5 hours, it could have been reduced to a 45minute lecture and not much would have been lost. There was only one stage\show routine discussed which was a coloring book routine, which was okay but nothing earth shattering. Just the fact that he used a set of nesting wands made from PVC pipes and let them drop on the floor as part of the routine is a bit ludcricous. Any person who performs in peoples homes or schools would never drop such things on the floors, since there would be dents and other damage to the floor. Absolutely a prop that should never be used in such a manner. The only other effects he taught were store bought magic effects and just explained the handling / no new routine ideas and not very appropriate for a childrens entertainer. Danny has some good ideas on handling kids and even a few marketing tips, but overall this lecture lacked performing material and a lot of time was set aside to market his other videos. Much better childrens entertainer videos out on the market. CJ Johnson has a great school video, as does Tommy James with his birthday party videos and there are many more. Save your money and invest in those / learn a lot more great effects and also see good live performances by professionals.
