MAGICIAN JIM COMBS
When I was 12 years old I began to learn magic and perform magic shows in my basement for friends and neighborhood children. In my late teens I left magic for music eventually leading to performances in several local and traveling bands as well as stage shows including Jesus Christ Superstar and The Wiz.
Years passed without any professional involvement in magic until my son Peter wanted a magician for his 5th birthday party. I saw Peter's birthday party as a great opportunity to get involved in magic again. As a writer, the first thing I did was to write a show that would entertain 5 and 6 year old children. I relearned some old magic effects and learned some new ones. During the show I used my son and daughter as assistants for several effects and both caught the magic bug.
