Time stamps for this podcast:
00:06:15 - Terry talks about working with children and the how he came to star in one of the earliest "hit magic videos" on teaching how to entertain children. He also talks about the state of performing close-up in England today and what is in his current stand-up routine for adults. We chat about mentalism in the U.K. and it was interesting to find that Terry has done quite a bit of study on the history of "The Piddingtons" which he discusses here on the podcast. Terry talks about his friends Ken Brooke and tells stories about Tommy Cooper and other U.K. legends.
