Entertaining with Balloons

Entertaining-sm
This is the 'How To Work Your Audience' book.

Work It Baby.... So the line goes in 'Pretty Woman'. And that is what we do with balloons. A fancy balloon alone is like eating dry cake with no icing. This booklet gives insights to the entertainment side of balloonology. There are mechanics at making balloons. Then, there are entertainers who use balloons as a vehicle to charm their audiences.

This book does NOT teach you how to make balloon sculptures. This book DOES instruct you on entertainment skills, how to look for the target person in the audience to 'pick' on for the next laugh, how to challenge your audience into the impossible, and how to make the appropriate balloon for the right person. Read this booklet and apply its lessons and insights. Soon, you will be more than a toy maker. You will be the man with Balloon Magic!
