Complete Discussion of Audience Appeals and Fundamentals of Showmanship and Presentation
In 199 hardbound pages, Showmanship for Magicians takes up the subject of presenting of magic to gain the greatest audience response, including a detailed analysis of spectator appeals and how to incorporate them into the presentation of magic. Step by step, you will learn how to create a favorable reception through choice of material, style of performance, character of work, timing, pointing, pacing, building up to climaxes, emphasis, routining, arrangement of material, and in many other ways. This is the classic tome of stage craft written by a showman ahead of his time.
Some of the subjects covered in the 25 important chapters are:
- Sex Appeal
- Selling Yourself
- Personal Behavior
- Physical Action
- Group Coordination
- Precise Attack
- Effortless Skill
- Getting and Holding Attention
- Types of Audiences
- and more!
“When I read showmanship for Magicians, it was the first time I had read a book where someone said you have to take a trick and make it yours; you have to make it fit your personality. That was fantastic! My magic life changed with the reading of that book.”
– Mike Caveney
