Thank YOU Dear Friends!

Thank you for supporting your local library by participating in the Summer of Streaming!

You no doubt saw the SOS Variety Show with some of my friends and I creating, enjoying and presenting all kinds of silly shenanigans including magic, comedy, balloon animals, and other FUN stuff.

As a special BONUS to our participating libraries, we are offering this special bonus page of MAGIC tutorials videos. These easy-to-master tricks appeared in the show, so we wanted to ensure you had access to review them and they secrets.

Be sure to practice them thoroughly BEFORE performing them for your family and friends.

Again, my heartfelt appreciation for you and your family. Have a GREAT summer!

Tim Mannix, Entertainer


What People Are Saying!

“This gentleman was great! Not only did he keep the attention of a full room of kids, he also had the grownups entertained and amazed. His quick wit & sense of humor enhance his obvious talent. I recommend him for anyone and everyone’s upcoming events.” – Laura W., Fresno

“I enjoy your show for a number of reasons:

  1. I like that you dress up to play the part, as it helps kids step out of their everyday life into a place of more imagination, as that is what we aim to develop in kids through reading as well. Appearance adds a special dimension to a show, like drawing them into another world.
  2. I like how you incorporated books as part of your magic show, even teaching them a bit about Dr. Seuss as a person, etc.
  3. I like how you interact with the audience with a sense of humor, keeping in the moment with their reactions to the show. Humor I think is terrific in any show, especially with magic.
  4. I like all your gizmos, as they add interest.
  5. I like seeing the kids get a chance to participate and feel good about themselves trying something new without any embarrassment. You provide lots of good audience participation.
  6. Of course I love your bunny. I love that the kids all get to pet him at the end.

Thanks for a great show!”
