David Kaye LIVE (Silly Billy)
“There is one person who could possibly convince me to perform for kids again, and his name is David Kaye.” -Jon Lovick
"There is no substitute for seeing Silly Billy in performance. ...It is difficult to imagine a more thorough or effective way to provide real-world instruction on how to entertain children." -Genii Magazine
"David Kaye is a genius in the children's entertainment. His book that he wrote should be in everyone hands who performs for kids. He knows what makes kids laugh and he knows how to take his audience on fun magic ride." -Ken Scott
"The old saying is that 'proof is in the pudding,' which means a key issue is 'does it work.' David Kaye works and his ideas work. There is much to learn from someone like him who stays so busy with his magic." -Duane Laflin

David’s philosophy is that a great kid’s routine has to have a high number of Interactions Per Minute. He’ll be showing several of his routines from his countless successful performances in front of real live kids, so you can see exactly what he’s talking about.
See how a top professional presents the coloring book, the crystal silk tube, and a trick he created with a change bag to increase his Interactions Per Minute up to 6! That means that about every 10 seconds the children are interacting directly in the magic.
Whether you perform exclusively for kids or just want to learn some universal techniques that apply to any magic routine, this lecture will definitely offer you something to take home and USE.
