Discover the secrets from 35 years of professional entertaining Profusely illustrated and clearly explained – by a pro for pros:
John Breeds’ previous book, the best-selling, How To Create Kids’ Magic is still acknowledged as the best book of its kind. David Kaye described this publication as “…the A to Z of all aspects of being a professional children’s entertainer”. It embraced the business of earning a good living as a children’s magical entertainer.
Now, continuing in a similar style, John Breeds treats you to dozens of routines from his working repertoire. His full explanations, attention to the smallest detail and his crystal clear illustrations show you how someone with 35 years performing experience brings his material to life.
Remember, John Breeds is the proven creator who brought the world’s magicians: Visible Magic Painting, Wacky Washing Machine, Pro-Epic, the funny Lie-Detector and hands-free electronic gizmos. This new book for professional entertainers brims with creative, funny and mystifying magic that will rejuvenate your shows with fresh material.
“John Breeds clearly knows his stuff, and he’s packed this book full of ingenious pieces. You’re about to take a trip into one of the greatest minds in the kid show magic business!” – Christopher T. Magician, Los Angeles:
“Hand-on-heart I never saw a better entertainer of children than John Breeds. What John has given you here is priceless: the working routines that wrought this phenomenon.” – Bobby Gill, UK:
John Breeds brings his 35 years experience as a professional children’s entertainer to his second book to lay bare the routines, props and bits of business that gave him such a successful career. It follows on the heels of his first magic book, the best-selling, How To Create Kids’ Magic – acknowledged by US children’s entertainment expert David Kaye (‘Silly Billy’) as “…the A to Z of all aspects of being a professional children’s entertainer”.
Now, continuing in a similar style, John Breeds brings you dozens of routines from his working repertoire. A former professional author and publisher, his full explanations, attention to the smallest detail and his crystal clear illustrations show you how someone with unparalleled performing experience brings his material to life. Nothing is omitted: nothing is left to chance: this is solid gold material you can rely upon.
As well as more than 30 highly commercial performance pieces, this new book brings professional children’s entertainers and magicians a treasure chest of original methods, apparatus and comedy bits. Remember, in addition to his track record as a performer, John Breeds is the creator who brought the world of children’s entertainment two highly acclaimed pieces of children’s magic: Visible Magic Painting and Wacky Washing Machine. Both repeatedly pirated, they went on to become modern classics of apparatus for children’s magic.
This new book for professional entertainers brims with creative, funny and mystifying magic. It will rejuvenate your shows with fresh material; taken together with its predecessor, the twin volumes contain the advice, routines, comedy and props around which one can build an entire career.
