He did a good job making this entertaining to watch, yet full of valuable information. The advice given is practical for all magic. Belongs in everyone's library.
An Endless Supply of Inspiration! Report this review

This DVD is the perfect supplement to David's book, "Seriously Silly." Not only do you get the benefit of seeing six thoughtfully and professionally constructed routines performed in front of a live audience by one of the leading kids-show performers, but you are also taught the presentational principles used to turn these classic magic tricks into show stoppers. If you have been performing magic for children for a couple of years, then your probably already have many of the props used in David's show (thumb tip, coloring book, change bag, crystal tube, etc). The exciting part is seeing how David uses 6 simple principles to turn these "boring" tricks into show-stoppers. For a more detailed analysis of these principles, you should definitely buy the book; however, the value of the DVD is getting to see the principles in action. Correctly apply these 6 principles to your kids show routines and/or that trick that never found its way out of the box, and you will have an endless supply of inspiration. Use these tried-and-tested principles and your audience will love you!

David Kaye doesn't just teach you tricks, but teaches you how to take whatever magic you currently have ( even if it;s in the drawer ) and make it a show piece.
This is invaluable information to current performers or anyone that is wanting to take the plunge!

Here you have the right ingredients to keep the kids entertained. You will have to buy some props that im sure you will after watching. My only complaints are: 1. Some of these props are out of stock on penguin and 2. The explanation for the milk tumbler was kind of vague to me. But that may be common since.. Overall, you will definately have the tools you need to perform for kids, that is, if you study and take notes. Some may not have to, but if you're like me, it helps.
Great tutorial Report this review

What can be said? It is Silly Billy! Mr Kaye does a great job teaching not just the routines he uses but also a lot of theory behind performing for kids. Silly billy is a master of controlled chaos and this video is a good introduction to starting your own controlled chaos! I think I should have bought the package with the book & DVD.
Of course this is just the DVD - it does come with any props. But most of them are basic items you may already have or can easily find (milk pitcher, disappearing coke, etc). That is part of the beauty of this DVD, he uses basic props but shows you how to add a lot of comedy to a simple trick. You can use his tricks or apply the techniques taught and create your own. Kids will love these routines.

I am really new with kids magic, but this DVD and the book really gave a head start.The first time I performed using his techniques/advice I was really surprised with the reactions.
Great stuff both for beginners and experienced pros.

This DVD is not about tricks. its not about the effects at all! There's so much info in this its unbelievable. David Kaye goes into lots of theory on how to make your kids show fantastic. BUY IT if you're into kids magic or getting into kids magic. I would recommend getting his book as well though 'cause there's much more info in that.

This is a wonderfully produced DVD from one of the Kidabbra children's performers group. David does an excellent job teaching the concept of creative performance. He goes into detail on how to construct a quality comedy routine for children. This is the perfect companion for the book.
A MUST!!! Report this review

If you are a children's entertainer or would like to be one this is defiantly a MUST for you. From the man himself David Kaye, he shows how you don't need bunny rabbit's and other large items to keep kids entertained. A very long and very true lecture type of thing from David is worth the price of the DVD alone, you don't have to use his routine but he tells you what a kid thinks is funny and what a child thinks is magic!
