Bill Abbott made an appearance with Chico on the "This is Daniel Cook" TV Show. Since it first appeared the episode has been airing consistently 3 and 4 times weekly on several Canadian networks, and was nominated for a Canadian Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Children's Series! The show was recently been purchased by Disney so you will see Bill amp; Chico on a Disney Channel near you. brbribHere are unsolicited endorsements from purchasers:/b/i bribr"I purchased the complete package and heartily recommend it to others - for me it was a no-brainer! Everything is well-made and packed and there are several additional bonus performances of the Chico routine on the DVD I was not expecting. For example there are live performances at a day camp for kids, at a college for young people and at an adult comedy club, which serve to illustrate how versatile the routine can be! The entire Chico script that's included makes it easier to refer to during rehearsal and together with a separate poster of the main moves from the audience and performer's view, it leaves nothing to be desired. brbrAnother thing is that the accompanying DVD for the Limited Edition has been re-shot and is not a repeat of the explanations portion of the DVD Bill Abbott Performs Magic for Kids. The version supplied with the set is much more detailed and covers all the nuances of the set-up, pack-up and performance (including card-handling, a master puppet workshop and complete prop management). The most valuable part for me was the Master Puppet Workshop section. His advice on here is invaluable."/ibrb- Magic Bern/b, Hong Kong, China brbri"The Chico routine is very strong, superbly crafted, and appeals to a wide age range. The price of $550 is very reasonable when you consider that you're getting 15+ minutes of solid entertainment that can be learned in a short while. I personally learned the routine on holiday in France. It took about ten days practicing for about 2 hours a day. brbrI was surprised Bill even released this routine, more so that he put all the effort into making these complete kits ready to go. Someone described this as the "perfect puppet routine". I second that, really first rate, and FUNNY! Bill has no doubt created with Chico one of the finest puppet routines. A perfect "packs small, plays big" routine. And for that, I will always be grateful. Bill Abbott is a World Leader in kids' entertainment because of this routine, and I hope he feels content that he's brought happiness to many kids (and many sick kids too) around the world. A big thank you again, Bill, for Chico, who will continue to make the kids of Sussex and London laugh for years to come, I hope!"/ibrb- Doug Roberts/b, iaka Potty The Pirate/i - United Kingdom ul/ul
