    THE EVENT MAGICIAN VOL. 1: DESIGNING A STAGE SHOW FOR SPECIAL EVENTS

    The Event Magician
    is an updated & expanded new release of J C Sum's critically acclaimed "The Event Illusionist" that was first published in 2004 and revised in 2008.

    The all-new The Event Magician has been released as two volumes and has been re-written to cater to all types of magicians who perform for special events. The event industry is likely the first industry that a budding magician will find work in. For 80% of the professional and semi-professional magicians in the world, all of their work is from special events of all kinds.

    The Event Magician Vol. 1 focuses on building a stage magic show for the international event industry. In the first book of its kind on this subject matter, J C covers all aspects of performing magic at events including understanding the nature of events, choosing material, planning the show, formatting the show, designing the staging, ensuring technical support, packing & transporting the show.

    J C also discusses onstage and backstage management at events including taking an exhaustive look at magician's tables available on the market. Also released for the first time ever are J C's updated professional Show Calling Cue Sheet and Technical Rider, refined over his 18 years of experience in the event industry. This information alone is worth the price of the book!

    The book includes a special bonus chapter that comprehensively covers performing an illusion show in an event setting.

    "J C has not only opened his book of knowledge to anyone wanting to earn a good living performing at events. He has also left no stone unturned with just about every conceivable angle on the subject of 'event performing' meticulously covered. I can only but applaud him on his valuable efforts."
