37. Super Sized Silly by David Kaye
Big News! Announcing the long-awaited brand new book from Silly Billy. It's called Super Sized Silly. That's because it weighs in at an impressive 400 pages! It contains 75 lessons to make you a better kid show magician, plus 150 routines by 100 different magicians. With 150 routines, you can create 10 completely different one hour shows. Ten new shows from one book? This may be the last magic book you will ever need!
Featuring routines by kid show stars Mike Bent, Ken Scott, Doug Scheer, Master Payne, Terry Herbert, Jozo Bozo, Mark Daniel, Jim Kleefeld, Buster Balloon, Chris Capehart, John Bundy, Terry Parrett, and Norm Barnhart. Plus kid show routines from David Williamson, Eric Meed, David Oliver, Michael Finney and Max Maven.
From 2000-2008 David Kaye wrote a monthly column in Magic magazine about performing magic for children. In each of his 100 columns he taught a principle in kids magic and then taught a routine that uses that principle. The routines came from the best kid show magicians from all over the world. In 2012 David began the task of updating and expanding each column and turning these columns into a book. This is that book.
The book is completely indexed so that you can easily find a routine for any classic trick that you want to put to your show. Just check the index, find a great routine, put it in your show, and you're done! Even if you only get five new routines from this book it will have more than paid for itself. But you will get so much more.
Silly Billy's last book, Seriously Silly, was a huge critical and commercial success. Many magicians feel it is the best book ever written on children's magic. And magicians have been waiting years to read the next book from Silly Billy (David Kaye). And here it is.
