February 26th 2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of the greatest magic demonstrator of all time... the irreplaceable, Ken Brooke. To commemorate this occasion I will be releasing (after five years in production), a hard back 220 page
book, which is an anecdotal tribute to Ken from some of his friends and acquaintances. There are no tricks as such in the book but, there are some wonderfully funny, as well as some poignant memories of Ken; a man, recently described as, 'the most influential man in magic'. Ken knew anybody who was anybody in the world of magic. He also helped countless performers scale the heights of their profession: Paul Daniels, Wayne Dobson, Al Koran, Fred Kaps, Gaetan Bloom,
Finn Jon, Juan Tamariz, Doug Henning, Tommy Cooper, Fred Robinson, Ricky Jay, Scotty York, David Berglas, Maurice Fogel, Terri Rogers, Roy Johnson... the list is endless! There are some superb sight-gags mentioned in the book, plus lots of Ken's professional bits of business and a wealth of his magical advice. In fact, there is a whole chapter dedicated to this one aspect of his knowledge. Contributors include: Gaetan Bloom, Wayne Dobson, Pete Biro, Paul Green, Mike Caveney, Ali Bongo,
Alan Shaxon, Trevor Lewis, Barbara McNaughton (Ken's partner), Barry Stevenson,
Martin Breese, Peter Duffie, Gordon Bruce, Marc DeSouza and about forty more!
Some of the profits from the sales of this publication will be donated to two charitable causes: The British Heart Foundation and The Ken Brooke Covent Garden Project which aims to have an inscibed bench to Ken's memory, placed in the grounds St. Paul's Church in Covent Garden, London. The book is a signed and numbered limited edition of 1,000 copies worldwide:there will be no more! Many new facts and photos of Ken never before published! Send me a PM should you wish to reserve a copy; but be quick... they're going fast!
