Learn how to become a children's entertainer
and grow a profitable part or full-time business
Learn at home, step-by-step training on DVD and CD-ROM
The video below gives you a short overview of this training programme for children's entertainers:
The programme consists of 5 training DVD's:
DVD 1 - The Magic FUN Show LIVE! This DVD shows you my Magic FUN Show in a real party environment of 40+ children. This is a highly entertaining show that gets rave reviews from both children and parents and with this video you get to see it for yourself! Please note that this was not filmed in a nice studio or school setting, where the children sit perfectly still for the duration - it is a "real world" video, warts and all! You will see a real-world, commercial magic show developed and perfected over thousands of performances. This is the exact same show I currently perform many times every week in the UK.
DVD 2 - The Magic FUN Show Explained (1) - Crystal-clear explanations and instruction of the tricks and routines. This DVD explains my Introduction, my sponge-ball routine, my cut & restored rope routine and my fab "teach-the-kids" coin trick. All the teaching is broken down into very easy-to-understand steps so don't worry that you won't be able to follow along - I guarantee you will!
DVD 3 - The Magic FUN Show Explained (2) - This DVD explains my Magic Bag trick and Change Bag routine as well as how to make a balloon dog (2 methods) and a balloon sword. The last 10-minutes of this video features my "Final Thoughts" talk.
DVD 4 - The Business-Building Talk - runs for 62-minutes. On this DVD I outline my business philosophy and marketing strategies, and explain step-by-step how and why I am able to keep myself continually booked, week after week (it's not just luck!) I am one of the (if not THE) highest-paid and busiest performers in my area and in this talk I'll share with you how I've done it and how you can too. While many other entertainers have been getting fewer enquiries and bookings coming in, I am busier than ever and am continuing to grow my business. This talk explains HOW I've done it (yes - there is a deliberate, well-crafted process behind it!) As a little aside, this is probably the most important video of the entire system for any entertainer serious about building their part or full-time business.
DVD 5 - Bonus Talk - runs for 64-minutes. On this DVD, I examine the role of a children's entertainer, the positives and negatives of the job and explain how I run my 60-minute Wizards Workshop and my 2-hr Complete Party Package. I detail what I do in these shows and why I do it that way. (My Wizards Workshop currently costs £175 and my Complete Party Package costs £250 so in my humble opinion this is a talk worth listening to!)
The programme includes a Resource CD containing samples of my confirmation letters and marketing materials - the same materials I have used and continue to use in my local market (Bristol, UK). You are welcome to take these samples and adapt them to use in your own marketing. I'll also give you links to all the props and equipment I use during my show.
WHO THIS IS FOR
The entire training programme is aimed at people who would love to perform a magic show for children - either on a full-time or (more likely) part-time basis - but aren't really sure where to start. Compared to the money you will spend/waste on magic tricks you'll never use, this training will save you a LOT of money (and time!)
The Magic FUN Show - LIVE! DVD shows you my best-selling, incredibly popular birthday party show in a real world setting. You'll see what I do week after week at children's birthday parties. You will see just how much energy it takes to entertain children for 45-minutes (it keeps me fit!) In short, this video shows you the reality of a magic show for children in the real world (and not an artificial studio setting, like so many other supposed "live" performance DVD's!)
The Magic FUN Show Explained (1 &2) DVD's are incredibly detailed explanations of how to perform the tricks in the Magic FUN Show. Nothing is taken for granted. I start at the beginning and show you in a very clear way how and why the routines are structured the way they are, how to do any "moves" required for the magic and give you tips and hints about the effects based on experience.
The Business Building DVD is perfect for you whether you are a complete beginner or one of the many children's entertainers who are currently experiencing fewer enquiries (and subsequent bookings) coming in.

- DVD 2 - The Magic FUN Show Explained (1)

A Little Bit About Me...
Of course, before you invest your money in a training programme like this, you want to know a bit about the person providing the training.
When you're evaluating whether I am someone you should listen to, I am one of - if not THE - busiest, most "in-demand" children's entertainers in my market - Bristol, UK. I perform my magic shows for children every single week, and my business has grown year after year. I am not someone who teaches something I am not currently doing.
For an abundance of proof of my credentials you can check out the rest of this website. Be sure to check out the photos, the videos and the downloadable 40-page PDF of rave reviews from delighted clients on the Rave Reviews page (but please don't do what some other children's entertainers have done over the years and copy them for your own use - my testimonials are protected by Copyscape.)
I have run training workshops which have been a live, interactive adaptation of the training system. These training workshops have been featured in The Sunday Times, where they said nice things about me:
"The system is Mike's act and it's an act that works. Mike currently books six children's shows a week (his two-hour party package is the most popular) in the Bristol, Bath, Gloucester and Swindon area. Mike knows how to control a party - he doesn't shout at the children. Or the parents. He doesn't need to. He whispers, and everybody leans in. Mike...made me want to change my style. He clearly loves entertaining children. With Mike, you know you've got a kind loving father."
(Richard Johnson, writing in The Sunday Times)
I have been hired to deliver training sessions on "how to entertain children" by large companies (for example McDonalds have hired me to train their Ronald McDonald entertainers how to perform simple but effective magic tricks suitable for a family audience.)
In short - I entertain children with a dynamic and fun magic show, I do it successfully and I have more business coming in than many, many, many other entertainers. While other entertainers have been getting quieter, I have been getting busier. I know what I am talking about, and I am an extremely good teacher (and did I mention I am very humble?!) :-)
