No Fail Kid's Magic Vol. 2 by Sean Taylor
Sean Taylor is best known as a mentalist but for many years, early in his career, he made a full time living from entertaining children. Sean is a dynamic, quick witted, funny and talented family entertainer. Consequently, he could be found each week working solidly for audiences from the smallest, back yard birthday party up to huge corporate stage shows for all ages. Working in and around small towns, he was forced to constantly develop new material in order to remain current and manage repeat bookings.
The DVDs in this series contain over 30 different tricks, routines and effects. You will see them performed live for an audience of excitable and ebullient kids and then, aside from explaining the effects, Sean also details the secrets behind the tricks. He covers in depth the kinds of things you should consider when entertaining kids with tips, gags, lines, bits of business and advice gleaned from years of live performance.
In this volume, Sean performs a series of tricks for a group of kids between 10 and 12 years old. He then details the methods and his thinking behind working for this tricky age group. The effects are fun and direct but allow the kids to feel more like young adults. The bonus segments contain some very solid advice on how to set up, prepare and think more deeply about your magic.
