Holiday DVD set for Magicians

Taped live at KIDabra, Terry Evanswood along with Barry Mitchell humorously kick things off with Santa's magical appearance and he introduces his favorite elf as Master of Ceremonies, the charming Sammy Smith.

Duane Laflin shares routines like Christmas Fun, A Which Way to Santa Routine for the Magic Arrow and an Angel Routine all of which you can make up yourself.

Jim Kleefeld with a wacky Snowball Fight (Pom Poms on Steroids) and Ian Adair's Coloring Contest

Dave Risley performs and teaches a terrific Santa in the Chimney routine that is probably worth the price of the DVD for his fantastic psychological subtleties on handling and the way kids respond.

Marty Hahne teaches Karrell Fox's great tip on what to do when you're performing at the Christmas Party and Santa is late in arriving. What you can do to cover until he arrives. Then Marty performs the fun Run Run Rudolph!

Tim Sonefelt presents The Sleigh Bell Express a clever magical take on a popular children's book involving Santa's sleigh bell.

Sammy Smith performs his gentle yet powerful Shrinking Glove routine with it's wonderful holiday/ North Pole premise and he return's with a wonderful bit you can make up called The Christmas Song Book.

IBM had the hilarious and unforgettable team of Karrell Fox and Duke Stern(later Abb Dickson), KIDabra has it's own dynamic duo in Barry Mitchell and Terry Evanswood. Join them as they kid, bicker and rollick through The Rainbow and Bud the Bad Breath Reindeer. Priceless, Classic Fun!

Jeremy and Cheryl le Poidevin from Practical Magic in England charmingly take turns with Cheryl showing the very funny Santa's Suits and Jeremy with Giant's Surprise and Happy Christmas Routine with a change box inspired by Robert Harbin.

David Kaye/Silly Billy scores with Hanukkah and Holiday Routines. First Hanukkah, with a great Lota bowl idea as it becomes a lamp oil vase which produces the "oil" each day to keep the lamp burning during the holiday. David's simple yet effective 8 presents of Hanukkah with a mirror box, a super multiplying sponge candle Menorah routine, David's Silly Wands and finally a Menorah Silk routine.

David then gives Christmas equal time with a brilliant and very commercial Wilting Christmas Tree, a very funny Child to Balloon Santa and his Magic Christmas Picture

After the show, join the crew in Disc 2 for the behind the scenes for tip sand workings on the Explanation Disc.

Whether it's a quick idea to add into this years show or material to use for years to come- Holiday Magic! is a must have for your working video library and a perfect companion to Things go Magical in the Night- The Halloween Session for theming and brainstorming show ideas. Expertly shot, edited and packaged by award winning videographer Ryan Risley son of The Riz.
