Welcome to a really packed issue that hopefully will mean your summer is not such a barren magical wasteland after all.
On the cover is super busy illusionist Sean Alexander whose tales of taking a big show out on the road are a real eye opener. He is joined by John Carey whose work with cards has won him much acclaim and many admirers. And talking of cards, what can you say about the totally brilliant Dani DaOrtiz? Well, actually quite a lot as you will see inside.
Need some advice? Good, we’ve got LOADS in this issue. For children’s entertainers we look at seven potential problems faced by them all and offer up some workable solutions, plus we cajole 14 top entertainers to reveal some of the things they wish they’d known before they started out on their magical paths. Read and learn from their experiences.
And there’s more! Graham Hey serves up another comedy page with a great gag and some killer one-liners from top people in the business. The Masterclass has a couple of contributions from John Carey and Arun Bonerjee, there’s the usual round up of product and live show reviews, as well as news, letters and other fun bits to keep you entertained. So we hope you enjoy our latest offering, and please try not to get suntan lotion all over it!
