Greg McMahon is one of the true professionals in magic and clowning. He's now revealing some of his best kid-show material in his new book, KIDS THINK IT'S FUNNY. In 27 unique and entertaining chapters, Greg teaches hilarious gags and routines to make you funnier than ever to your kid-show audiences! His tips on how to make a small show look big or his chapter on top hat juggling or his Rocky the Raccoon routines are easily worth much more than the price of the entire book.

look, the material is good. the book itself just isn't well proof read or well written. it has TONS of spelling errors and at times doesn't explain things well. However, the material and ideas in it make it worth getting.

you may have to read parts over and over to understand what he's saying but again the material is good.

I have known Greg for many years and have worked with him many times. These routines are workable and audience tested. His advice is sound though I disagree with him about clowns though but we are all entitled to our opinions. His Rocky Raccoon ideas are worth the price of the book.
