The Best Kept Secret in Magic
  • Creating Original Characters - Book by Nick Pawlow


          To say that Nick Pawlow is an original thinker is a no-brainer. After all, he won the Originality Award at the annual Vent Haven ConVENTion so many times they stopped giving it! (OK, actually, they stopped having contests entirely and that's why they stopped giving it...but Nick DID win that coveted prize more than anyone else - FOUR times!). His performances are always eagerly anticipated by those who know him. To those who haven't experience his unique - some might say "skewed" - sense of the absurd, his performances are an unexpected comedic blast of offbeat comedy and zany characters.

          This book is Nick's "gift" to his fellow ventriloquists. In it, he offers a peek behind the curtains of his slightly twisted mind so we can see what goes on in there. Nick reveals just how he developed his signature characters: Happy the Zombie, Rip the Headless Vent Figure, Yuk the Caveman, Hamlet the Baked Pig and MORE! You'll also learn about Nick's failed characters, but more importantly, why they failed. Once you understand Nick's thought processes, you, too, will be able to create unusual and memorable characters!

          This booklet is the "print version" of Nick's much-lauded lecture on ORIGINALITY at the 2011 Vent Haven ConVENTion. If you were there, you already know the value of this material. If you weren't lucky enough to attend Nick's lecture, you owe it to yourself (and your audiences!) to learn from an acknowledged "Master of the De-Boxed Thought Process." Don't be another carbon copy vent with the same ol' cheeky boy figure! Be ORIGINAL!

          32pp; 5-1/4" x 8-1/2"; softcover. A GOLDMINE of information for only...
