John ‘Kimmo’ Kimmons is a world-famous (and world-class) family entertainer. In 2008 he was awarded the title of Children's Entertainer World Champion and became the first children's act to receive the prestigious Ken Dodd Award for Comedy at the Blackpool convention. Since then he has travelled the world as guest entertainer on some of the world's largest cruise liners, performed twice at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and made television appearances on CBBC's The Sorcerer's Apprentice and The Slammer. He is a resident entertainer at Cadbury World and is in constant demand as a performer and lecturer.
I’m sure we all have a favourite book (or books) from which we’ve taken a favourite trick (or tricks) and made it a staple of our acts. Tonight is the chance to introduce us to those books and those tricks. Tell us what makes them especially valuable to you (or to us!) Present as many or as few items from the book as you wish. Stand-up, stage, close-up, kids; the choice is yours. Variety is the spice of life – and a good bookshelf.
Hopefully Christmas wasn’t a blur of food, drink and festivities. Hopefully some of us were devising our 10-minute close-up act to be presented tonight. The Hugo Cup awaits the victorious magician who manages to entertain and amuse the three tables with their close-up magic. Last year Andy Cole took home the trophy. Will it be you this year? Let (friendly) battle commence.
(Note that this is the date by which resolutions must be received by the Secretary for them to be considered at next month's AGM.)
