The Strolling Magician
120 x A4 size pages
Hardbacked with laminated dustjacket
18 strolling routines
I have been working close up commercially for over 25 years and in that time I have gradually amassed experience of working in a huge variety of venues and working situations. Exactly how to cope with everything that the modern day close up worker encounters requires thought, planning and expertise if you really wish to do it well, and in this book I have tried to give as much real world advice as I can to help make your job that much easier.
There are 8 chapters of highly detailed advice on all aspects of commercial close up, the chapter headings being: Is Strolling Magic Right For You?, First Things First - The Approach, Table Manners, Nuts And Bolts, Special Events/Venues, The Tricks, The Pro Magician and The Final Word. I have gone into great detail about the many aspects of the strolling magic ‘job’ and everything I have said comes directly from my own experiences - it may not be the only way, but it works very well for me and I hope it will for you too.
Interspersed amongst this goldmine of advice are 18 strolling routines to add to your repertoire: Spin Out, A Bite To Eat, Intuition, The Hypnotised Coin, My Card Sir, Badgered, The Department Store, Paper Money, The Magic Ring, Beer Money, A ‘Groan’ Man, Aces Under Control, Name Dropper, Copy Ring, The Caught Card, The Acrobatic Coin, Credit Scare, Simplex Hopping Halves. Every single routine is fully described and is obviously suitable for this type of work.
The Strolling Magician is based on and now supersedes the highly successful Art Of Hopping Tables. All the advice chapters have been completely re-written from scratch and the magic itself collects together many of my strongest and most practical commercial routines. I believe this book will provide all readers with a rich vein of advice and information and will be a worthy addition to any magic bookshelf.
The British Close Up Magic Symposium - The First Decade
A4 size, 214 pages, hardbacked, featuring 80 items contributed by 52 close up performers from around the world
The first decade of the Symposium (1989 - 1999) saw 6 superb close up conventions featuring some of the very best close up performers from around the world.
To coincide with each Symposium a comb bound book was released with contributions from the performers at that particular event, and over the 10 year period an enormous amount of varied material was published.
Then in 1999 a special 10 Year Anniversary Book was released featuring further NEW ROUTINES from many of the performers who appeared at the first five events.
This new compilation brings together in one hard backed book virtually all of the above material thus preserving it for the benefit of magicians now and in the future. A look at the list of contributors shows you what a strong line up it is….
Jon Allen, Michael Ammar, Paul Andrews, Mike Austin, John Bannon, Steve Bedwell, Stuart Bowie, Janet Clare, Aldo Colombini, Alistair Cook, Rob Cox, Roger Crosthwaite, Dusty, Keith Fields, Dan Garrett, Paul Gordon, Paul Hallas, Ken Hawes, Guy Hollingworth, John Hotowka, JJ, Graham Jolley, Dave Jones, Ian Keable, Walt Lees, Melvin Lehair, John Lenahan, Mark Leveridge, Trevor Lewis, Simon Lovell, Shaun McCree, Richard McDougall, Andy Nyman, Bob Ostin, Anthony Owen, Marc Paul, Chris Payne, Mike Porstmann, Chris Power, Geoff Ray, Kevin Reay, Tony Rix, David Roth, Al Smith, Bob Swadling, Stephen Tucker, Michael Vincent, Jorg Willich, Paul Wilson, Richard Wiseman and Tommy Wonder.
The range and variety of magic offered is enough to keep even the most demanding close up enthusiast happy. Along with the ubiquitous cards and coins, there is magic with more unusual items such as Jelly Bears, goldfish, spoons, polo mints, and apples! Plus there are thought provoking articles on approaching a table, how to keep a restaurant job once you've got it, how to soften the blow of powerful magic to make it more acceptable to the public, how to entertain children with close up, how to get and cope with trade show work, plus much more. Professional comment from experienced performers.
This book is a fitting tribute to those talented performers who made the Symposium what it was in its first decade. Get this book and you will share in the 'magic'!
