Hi Doug,
I thought you said you were a ventriloquist. I saw your lips moving, singing that song.
I like the clip. I have actually seen the clip in full and it's great the way Potty gets right into the show.
Well done potty.
Speak soon

Potty,

I like your colorful custom and tennis shoes! Looks nice together.

Cool uke, too. I got a tenor in from Hawaii this week. Now to learn it Smile

Best,

Potty Humor! Heavy Guitar work! Smile Money's worth!

Great stuff Doug. Your goody will be in the mail tomorrow. Probably best for the 8 to 10 year set (and up) if you do those.

For those in the loop, I chose Potty for a special test of the 3 No Evil Mental trick to get an indepth review for my own research of the UK kids reactions to it. If it's great he has instructions to post it. If it sucks he will not lie. Of course if it sucks he wont post it. hahaha.

Thanks guys, glad you like it. Tod, that's no uke - it's a Cuatro, which is the traditional Caribbean guitar, also national instrument of Venezuela. To my ears, the sound is much nicer, more woody, and a lot more bass. The YouTube clip doesn't really do it justice in sound quality.
Doug - very excited about getting your 3 No Evil. Looks ideal for hospitals, walkabout, shows for older kids, or just entertaining the odd older kid who may be at a younger sibling's party. Expect a review soon...
My pal Rob tells me there's a much longer clip going up tomorrow, with more action from my "Magic Island" show, so when it's up, I'll post the address.

Nice work, Doug. You've great shoes and I had to laugh when I saw you brandishing your famous jar of snot! Great mugging.

I know you didn't ask for feedback but hey it's the magic Café we force feed you the stuff in here.

I thought using your playing as a soundtrack was a cute idea but if you're using it as a promotional video I think upping the sound on the action in some of the clips might help. It's like when you watch the telly with the sound off everything looks a bit odd and disconnected.

Looking forward to the next one.

Nice work Doug. Left me wanting to see more, which is definitely a good thing.
I was almost disappointed by the snot jar - it seemed quite unoffensive compared to how I'd imagined it!!

Can't wait for the follow up!

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I agree the Snot Jar could look more repulsive and piratical, but the main thing is it needs to be airtight, to keep the snot contained within in excellent and slimy condition. I also wanted the jar to be see-through, but would definitely prefer a less plasticky-looking jar.
During the show of course, I tip the contents out of the jar and allow it to balance precariously in front of the kids....so they kinda forget about the jar when they see the actual snot inside.....

Great Stuff Potty!

Singing is a BIG + when selling your show.

Keep up the good work!

Neznarf,

You've experienced/noticed more interest in birthday magicians that include singing than those that don't?

Thank you,
Tod

Not if you sing like me, it isn't.
