Hello from Antwerp, Belgium! by Magic Kim on Feb 15, 2016
Hello Buskercentral people and all of the other Busker-lovers,

I'm a mid 30's Belgian magician from Antwerp. I'm studying magic since I was about 15 years old, and perform now for already 12 years. I always were more interested in close-up magic, but through meetings with other magicians, I started doing kids-magic on birthday parties, schools, etc...
Because I performed for children, I tried to start performing as a clown-dressed magician. Yet, some years later, I stopped doing those children shows, and I'm focusing pure on sleight of hand magic for the use in close-up and/or parlor magic. Because I have a busy day-job as a European International Courier Driver, I didn't liked the hassle anymore when working with contracts.
For that reason, I will start out Busking here in Belgium as soon as the spring is in the country. I studied a lot of other street performers, as well magic as other arts, and I really want to go out now to Hit the Bricks!!!

The name Mik-Kado is the only thing...

:disguise: (CAMDEN TOWN) Holy guacamole! Camden has banned amplified street music and now requires unplugged performers to buy licenses.

With the help of the Great Golden Kazoo in the sky, buskers have formed a church to sidestep the new busking laws. The Church of the Holy Kazoo has just been formed in the nick of time by buskers exercising the human right to "preach" in public.

It all started when Buskers staged a "street jam" in the heart of Camden to protest against the controversial new rules to license busking in the borough. Street performer Jonny Walker came up with the idea after Camden council's new laws required buskers to pay for licenses. He realized that street preaching is protected under freedom of expression laws so he set up the Church of the Holy Kazoo. It means Jonny...
