Reviews:
"Excellent thoughts on psychology, acting, timing, pausing and pointing. I especially enjoyed the second disc where Quentin talks about British children's magicians of the past and demonstrates some of their wonderful magic. Really fascinating." Eugene Burger.

"If you want to know what a professional children's entertainer LOOKS like, ACTS like & THINKS like, then Quentin's DVD set should surely be an essential resource.
Years of research and thought, and thousands of shows are clearly evident, and it is all brought to you with a real generosity of spirit." Richard McDougall.

"This is not a video lasting 40 minutes or so - no - in fact its duration is 240 minutes. No padding; and packed with superb presentations and explanations - bits of business and comedy gags suitable for all age groups. I thoroughly recommend this set of DVD's to all children's entertainers. It's one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of watching." Ian Adair.

“A gold mine of material for anyone performing for a variety of audiences age 3-5, 6-8 and 9 and up! His material is seasoned and perfected, doing many classics with all those extra bits added that make this a DVD a wealth of material for anyone, newbie or professional looking for bits to add and make their show fresh”. Alan Sands.

"All I can say is if you are into entertaining children with magic, this DVD will not disappoint. Quentin is a real thinker and I loved watching this guy work. It becomes
obvious right away that he thinks out every single facet of each routine to make it the best it can be.

I can honestly say I have learned some new things from watching this DVD; especially the importance of “pauses” and Quentin is a master at this bit-of business. I definitely give these DVD’s two thumbs up!" Tommy James.

Comes with the 2-DVD set with a total running time of 240 minutes.
