For over 15 years I performed over 250 children's shows a year. That was until cruises, comedy clubs, corporate shows and trade shows took up all my time. I still do a few kids shows every year to keep my hand in.
If you do shows for children and families then you must have this book... but don't believe me, read the reviews...
Contents include my 12 of my favorite routines, my thoughts on how to be the best children's entertainer in your area, advice on comedy for kids, character building, marketing and so much more.
Full patter with most of the routines.
"Keith Fields knows how to entertain children and families and how tomake them laugh. Plus his experiences as a street performer and stand upcomedian inform his technique for performing for kids with greatsuccess. This is an excellent book." - David Kaye AKA Silly Billy
"Keith has a wonderfully fresh and unique take on KIDshows and his book reflects that with very commercial routines he has made a living with. There is, I predict, classic material in this book that will find it's way into many family performers shows for years to come. Thanks to Keith for sharing a wonderful treasure of routines and ideas!" - Mark Daniel School Show Guy and KIDabra Chief Bottle Washer
"...well-produced and a great read! It is very nice to see solid examples of real-world routines that work!" - Jim Kleefeld
"Keith should never have released this book! He is handing you the hows, whys and wherefores of success as a children's entertainer on the proverbial plate. No fancy phsycological fare, just down to earth advice (and tricks, no less!) from an entertainer who knows his subject. There is a wealth of solid information and material in every page and the 'video assists' are a stroke of genius." - Dave Andrews
"I have a love/hate relationship with Keith Fields
I love that he's a great magician.
I hate that he lives in my market area.
I love that he's got some great routines and ideas.
I hate that he's practically giving them away.
Please don't buy this book!" - Doug Scheer
"Like all successful professional performers it is very easy to seewhy they are so successful. Keith has been there, performed there, wonthe trophies to prove it and has continued to turn out commercial,doable magic, which everyone can perform. When you read this book youare obviously being taught by a consummate professional who caresabout his profession and who has worked every single routine to knowwhat makes it work. His tips and advice add that extra value addedfactor that so many other books lack. I can highly recommend thisebook to anyone who wants to start in the business of entertainingchildren or who is already established. Everyone can take somethingfrom this work." - Mark Worgan
"love the book... really good, well written and absolutely packed with stuff that is totally practical. In fact if you just learn the book and you have a top class act. I like the you tube link idea (never seen that before) all in all very professional. Whoever buys it should be very happy.I will be definitely doing some of this before the punch and judy... the sponge balls, xylophone, maybe even grandma's teeth and the ukulele." - England's premier punch and Judy worker: Professor Dill
