What will he teach?
Family Magic Show:
Underpants Opener—a new use for an old prop that establishes your character and teaches the audience what to expect and how to behave for your show by seemingly putting the children in the drivers’ seat.
Not-A-Snake—a hilarious sucker trick the children will bite hard on that has adults at the edges of their seats to see how you’ll inevitably flip the script and fool everybody.
Bank Night—inspired by Stephen Bargatze’s excellent I Hate Kids routine (and with Stephen’s endorsement), this one-in-a-hundred bank night makes the whole audience think you’ve merely set them up for a joke… until the super strong kicker. Uses a simple method every magician already knows how to do.
Grandpa Was A Kleptomaniac—a hysterical Mutilated Parasol routine in which every element is motivated.
Rocket Book—a literal twist on a familiar principle—however the book is turned, the pictures remain right-side up. Also incorporates a single Topsy Turvy Bottle for a kicker ending that gets audiences screaming.
Spirit Slates/Rising Wand—a classic of spiritualism gets a hilarious makeover, thanks to a well-motivated magic wand.
Crayon Trick—a closer in which the magician seems to teach the audience a magic secret, until an impossible twist that’s been in plain sight since the beginning of the show.
Bonus: will also go over Catalog of Broccoli, Homework Trick, Progressive Coloring Book, Coloring Book
Who is he?
Scott Green is a full-time family magician. He’s also the author of a breakthrough book on family magic, a popular lecturer at conventions across the country, and the creator of a number of top-selling innovative routines.
Among his fans is Teller, who loves Scott’s book, “Excellence in Family Magic” (a fact Scott learned on-camera during taping of his Fool Us appearance.)
Scott’s breakthrough was in focusing not on children’s magic but on magic for the whole family—effects simple enough for children to understand but strong and interesting and funny enough for the grownups.
That’s why Scott has a ton of TV appearances—aside from Fool Us he’s also often seen on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, WGN, ESPN and the CW—and was even the team magician for an NBA franchise. His style is fun for audiences and, best of all, it’s fun to perform.
He’s the most sought-after family magician in Chicago and because parents love his shows as much as children, he’s able to command much higher fees than his competition. He does hundreds of shows a year and turns down hundreds more.
Scott lives with his wife and two children. He has a law degree he’s never used and has been a contestant on four game shows, including “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” and “The Price Is Right.”
