In actual fact we have another surprise, this is really heating up to be the best event of the year. I just secured the Great Simono. People have had problems putting on a clowns nose, this guy is going to be coming to the workshop to educate people on how to put on a clowns nose properly without the use of elastic that goes around your head. This is exciting people! So bring your own nose. We will see you there!
( this cost me a lot of $ to get him there, all out of my pocket )
He will also take you out for all the curry you can eat.

For those of you who are wondering why I am doing a workshop with Mario Morris....

Reasons being is that I couldn't really pick a better partner. Mario's credential speak for itself. He has worked hard to get where he is. The only thing that is bigger than his crowds is his heart. Its in the right place. I remember when Mario first came to my workshop way back when, Simon Jackson pieced together a leture tour for me in England. It was actually Simon's idea to do a C&B workshop.In actual fact the whole idea was Simon Jackson idea in the beginning. It all grew from that. Maybe he might come down and say hello. Mario was one of the students but he was already seasoned at that point. I could tell he has been street performing for a number of years. For him to swallow his pride and come to a workshop after street performing for 10 years or so , to me that's an honorable thing. No matter how professional there is always room to learn. And Mario has progressed even more into a seasoned entertainer and teacher. He's learned his methods in the trenches. This is what I've told everybody and still do. If you take up street performing and stick at it you will become good at it. Mario is a classic example of this. I'm honored to be working with him and really pleased to have seen him grow.

Extended History of The Schol of Busking

The School of Busking was an idear that came up with for the British Circus/juggerling convention that I organized in 2001. A number of busking jugglers attended. I then went on to do it in Europeain juggerling convention twice and then British once again. I then went to the Gazzo work shop which my now good pal Simon Jackson (Where the heck are you?) organized, which was a diffrent thing altogether but a great highlight in my performing life.

The whole convention attracted over 1500 juggerlers and is well known in the World of uk Jugerlers. .

It was about taeching performing skills not magic but with Gazzo on board and now another one of my heros Cellini, we will be teaching Magic and whole lot more that I could not even scratch on by my self. Never before have I taught any one how to do magic but I have taught performers how to busk.

The first Schools I ran in Cardiff attracted 7 circus performers and 3 magic performers

I say this because I really want to reach out to the Crircus world I would love some of thoes fellas to come as well. So if you know any jugglers let them know.

Their you go the conpleteat history of the School of Busking.
Mario
PS. I am a juggerler but I have not icluded juggerling in my street show for over 10yrs even thoe I like to toss off as offten as possible

Hey Mario

I'm here, lurking as always in the background.

Gazzo, you could never master the art of putting on a clowns nose, in fact you were the only student who screwed it all up.

Yes, I starting the ball rolling in 2004 (Gazzo On Tour in 2004) it cost me my marriage, my reputation, all that was good in my life!! It spawned page after page of discussion of the Gazzo style, clones, workshops and so on. All I got out of it was a large therapy bill and several strange nights in hotel rooms with Gazzo - I think Liverpool and the mad Dutchman stands out for me!

Despite all the pain and suffering, the nervous disorder, Gazzo leading me to ruin in betting shops and horses, having to buy crap off Mario every year at Blackpool, I still recommend the weekend in June highly, if you don't go - your loss!

After reading my post above about the quiet moments, I just want to give you an example. I flew over to Ireland in 2004 to a small convention with Gazzo - this was the one where the kid that was helping him out at the Gala show told Gazzo to **** off.

Post show Gazzo and Wayne Dobson spent some time chatting about routines, particularly the origin of Wayne's vent routine and then just traded jokes and one liners for the rest of the night. Now I've been to my fair share of lectures and talks but there was more value to be had in that conversation than all the lectures put together.

So Gazzo, Cellini and little ol' Mario informally discussing busking. You can't put a price on it.

(By the way if you're going to Blackpool this year make sure you get up to Mario's table on the dealers balcony, some nice little bargains to be had.)

My man, I am glad your alive I missed seeing yu at Black pool and every other street corner.

My marriage, my reputation and all that seemed good fell apart, by the sounds of things about the same time. Mind you for all diffrent reasons we where simply not happy. Today I getting their, I have meet a great woman Veronica live work travel and any more detail I will get baned from hear. Mandy my X and I are now good freands and have a far better understanding of each other than when we where married.

So in reflection their is a silver lining in every black cloud.

I have reserved you your place at School, it is not the master class as you know it. But I guess a melting pot of diffrent back grounds as I metioned before your thread.

Talk about changing the subject by hay I am real glad to hear from you, you have been missed in the real World.
Keep on keeping on.

Folks, this is now turning into a Buskers Rock festavel.

I am currently in Cardiff been Busking in the Central had some great sized crowds. I had magicain from the local club hear who signed up after watching my show, that realy made my day. Smile

After Gazzo secured Cellini for us we have increased the places by 10 so their will be max 30 students to cover increasing expenses. We are now half full, folks I am heading to the biggest Magic Convention in the World today armed with flyers about Gazzo and Cellini and little ol me(thanks Simon). I have my School of Busking flyers under my arm and we are going to push this thing real hard now. So if you want a place get your enrolment and payment in NOW

I have been staying at the Packpackers hostel where I have arrange for us or to stay in Cardiff which I now can confirm is more than a great place. Formerly a pub, pool tables, leather coaches, hamocks in the lounge, and increaderbly trendy, the staff are great the music rocks. Staff never close the Bar. Once you you had enough comfy bunks clean and tidy and bliss.

Last night I performed my show their, It seemed that every resident of the hostel turned out icluding locals.They awarded me with the NosDa award last night which is an resdent award, nice.

This place is big with 200 beds and I would guess 4 star standard, no staff member has corrected me and said it is 5star packpackkers standard the only one in the UK that has reached 5star, I mean this place has even got a full scale gym.

I will try to cheque my email in the next few days, but I am off to Black pool just now. This is it folks the final count down, final confermation of your place will have to be confirmed through Veronica or my self ONLY, as I will be signing up folk at the convention. Their in no securing a place with out at least a deposit, period even if you asked Gazzo, no deposit no Guarrented place, sorry.

Sincerely, this may be the most important event in performing magic on the street that has ever or will ever happen. A true once in a lifetime endeavor. Wow.

Best,
