Bill Abbott Performs Stand-Up Magic for Kids
Bill Abbott has entertained audiences across North America and Western Europe with the magic on this DVD for over 19 years. Now you can experience the original, magical, and very funny stand-up magic for kids that Bill has honed through years of tough experience. Recorded at a resort in front of a live audience witness material that was developed in the trenches of the birthday party circuit and perfected in tours across Canada and the United Kingdom. These routines have the practicality and the versatility that have lasted almost two decades of solid performances. Beyond the performances are the careful details that make up the construction, set-up, and delivery of each of these treasured routines.
