The Quentin Reynolds Interview


"We sat down in Quentin’s Manchester home to talk performing and his unique and experienced approach to children’s magic and stand-up mentalism for adults. We chatted about how to develop an A-list repertoire, show structure for children’s shows and adult mentalism shows, eliminating barriers, his creation of the mouse routine, taking control of unruly kids and adult hecklers, creating theatrical contrasts, finding premises and the power of puppets. If you perform for children or adults the things Quentin shares will surprise and enlighten you." -Bill Abbott

  • I absolutely loved that, I’m
    A kids magician/entertainer, but you spoke more like a musician (my first love) like a conductor wreaking through. I found that very inspirational as magic is my 3rd artform

  • Listen to this over and over and over again. Then apply it!
