  • Is he very well well known in the US? His items look nice, but I didn’t recognize the name, and a quick search shows the freaky body illusions more than the other magic.

    • This was a surprise to Ken that people in the US didn’t know him. He is such a big figure in UK magic. Some things just don’t translate across the pond.

      • I’ve often been surprised, even when traveling inside the US, how much the names change for everything, not just magic.

        There are brands you see every day so you just presume they are all over and then you go a few states away and you expect to see them and they don’t even exist.

  • Make your client’s first experience with magic be a good one.
    So important! I still can’t understand the number of magicians that think that if a place hires someone that is bad, it’s okay because they’ll hire another magician the next time (and it might be them instead of the bad one). The reality is, magic seems to be one of the few things where if a booker has a bad experience, they just don’t go back. If they have a bad singer, they’ll get another singer the next time, but if they have a bad magician, it’s rare that they would get another magician. This is one of the many reasons I am so grateful to Julian and Ken – I feel that they have helped to make me a better magician and more importantly, a better entertainer and are striving to raise the level of all magicians!
