SCHOOL SHOW PRESENTATION book, VOLUME 2/3 ONLY … ON SALE until out of print:
Before the wide-spread popularity of video tape, I produced this set of books and audio tapes in the early 1980’s, sharing magic and comedy and logistics about working at schools. But don’t be misled—this magic is plenty good for parties, churches and other kidshow venues.
In 300 pages and three hours of cassette tape, you’ll learn two super running gags, the Tree of India and the Snake Rifle. Then you’ll have fun galore with King Kong, the Ring House, Beads of Prussia, the Quick-Change Silk, and Gene Gordon’s Sword Thru Neck routine. Every word you hear on the tapes is COMPLETELY TRANSCRIBED in the books so you can check it out. All tapes were recorded live at Georgia schools over a five year period.
Just check out the 100-chapter contents:
