Review of The
I attended a holiday show recently
that I think is worth sharing with your readers. I went to see the
Amazing Andy. Most people would tremble at the
prospect of entertaining two dozen 3 and 4 year olds without
resorting to restraints of some kind, but Andy was pretty amazing.
To the adults he appeared nervous and uncomfortable, but the
children warmed to him right off the bat and were not threatened by the
strange skinny man adorned in horizontal stripes. Andy demonstrated
a very good understanding of his audience and their sense of humor.
An older crowd would have tired almost immediately of the broken wand gag,
but he played with it for the entire 45 minute show. The kids
actually were looking for the wands to fall apart, and having a
blast. Andy was even brave enough to choose volunteers from the
audience and every last kid acted as if they wanted to be picked. He
also juggled and did some slight of hand. For his grand finale he
conjured up a rabbit, and even let the children touch it. I am told
he is great demand for parties and now I fully understand why. If
you have a void to fill in your holiday entertaining schedule, you
could do a lot worse than hiring The Amazing Andy.

him and weren't able to offer any assistance until recently when an
e-mail from Andy himself showed up. It is attached in it's entirety
