Over the last year there has been several personal emails and posted questions regarding comedy and kid show magic, along with routines and great questions.

I get Genie, M.U.M., and Magic magazines and there is an article or two in them related to Kids shows by Silly Billy and Steve Taylor, however, the Funny Paper Magazine is the best for learning a lot about entertaining for the whole family, especially for kids.

For instance, in this January/February 2003 Funny Paper Magazine, I have personally met and talked to the following article writers'/gurus' of Kid's Show Magic: Duane Laflin, Dave Risley, Mark Wade, David Ginn, Ken Scott (Cafe Member), and Barry Mitchell. This is a short list of the many published articles all which deal with entertaining kids and family, marketing tips, balloon tips, clown tips, music, restaurant gigs, and so much more. For $25 a year for 6 issues (Approx. $4.00 per issue.) You get a wealth of great information as well as routines for kids.

If you are planning to be serious about doing shows for kids then you must act like a pro and get the only magazine designed to entertain them. Remember, magic is only a part of an act when it comes to entertaining kids, the comedy and clowning really makes the show. All the pros know this. (Not only do they subscribe to this magazine, they write articles for it.)

By the way, this is not an advertisement for them, it is a sincere post to make professionals out of magicians who want to entertain kids. Check it out, I think they'll send you a free sample magazine, which, will convince you of the value of this publication.

Im probably going to be subscribing-Thanks Dennis
If a magician is not intending to "trick" a spectator, why is every "trick" called a magic "trick"?

A couple of years ago, Samuel Patrick Smith took over the publishing of the Funny Paper. You can subscribe to it through his website. Look under the category of "books."
