Waiting for the phone to ring for that next show? Why not create your own fortune and produce your own show? Sure, it will take an investment of your time, effort, and money, but then what successful venture isn't worth that?
In this podcast, Erik Dobell and Chris Collins discuss how they came together with the common interest of producing and marketing a magic show they could take to the public. This podcast is not intended as a promotional tool for their show so much as it is a look into how they did it and how you can put together your own show using similar tools that have proven successful.
They talk about using a cheap place to get rack cards (or Club Cards) using http://GotPrint.com and for getting tickets printed, they recommend BrownPaperTickets.com. We both recommend checking out Fiverr.com where you will be surprised what you can find people will do for you for only five bucks (like professional voice overs). They also use http://Weebly.com to design their own free website. If you are interested in learning more about these two magicians and their Impossibilities Show and their show dates and places, then please visit their website at http://www.impossibilitiesshow.com/ Their Twitter handle is @BestMagicShow and their Facebook page is http://Facebook.com/Impossibilitiesshow
We start off the podcast getting to know each other a bit better as we discuss Doctor Who, some performance ideas for the "Haunted Key", and how Erik got involved in mentalism and Chris steered into comedy magic. We also talk about their small community of magicians in their area and how they got together and decided to produce a stage show.
