The Guaranteed Standing Ovation

Juggler, magician and humorist Steve Seguin closes every show with a standing ovation, and now YOU can too! Applying great staging, simple choreography and an age old circus/party stunt, Steve has audiences jumping to their feet at the end of his show. Every. Single. Time. Guaranteed!

No Props!
And here's the best part, there's absolutely no props to bring! Just show up at any venue, grab four chairs and you're ready to roll.

The Basic Routine
The performer gets four volunteers from the audience and using four chairs in a special set-up is able to remove all the chairs incredibly causing all four participants to balance one on the other in a fascinating suspension configuration!

The Full Monty
In partnership with Bill Abbott Magic, Steve Seguin will walk you through a master class in audience participation and management. In a deluxe multimedia pro package which includes both a 45 page book and 90 min. DVD that will give you all of the knowledge and tools necessary to add this dynamic conclusion to YOUR show.

Standing Ovations...Who Cares?
Meeting and event planners, agents and your clients do. If your show ends with a standing ovation it's a clear signal that you have succeeded in a performance that the audience enjoyed enough to be on their feet and applauding at the conclusion. And that's a clear signal to the person who engaged your services that you've succeeded in entertaining the audience and received the ultimate recognition for doing a great job-a standing ovation. And that's money in the bank.

What You Don't Know
Think you know everything about the chair stunt? Not even close. Steve's routine has been honed over a decade of performances in front of hundreds of audiences. Through trial and error Steve has created the perfect closer and is tipping everything in this exclusive BAM Pro Package. From the correct chairs to use, their precise positioning on the stage along with the exact volunteer direction to get the maximum impact as well as keeping everyone safe from injury.

The real work is in the staging, build up and delivery that leads to an entire audience of 50-5000 people to literally leap to their feet at the end of the routine. Steve leaves no stone unturned and will instill in you the knowledge and confidence to walk onto any stage and leave that same stage to genuine standing ovation. Every time.
