never write! You never call! Have you given up that clown thing and
gotten a Real Job?"
-Martha Strauss, Fashoo's Mom
umm, thanks, Mom. Fashoo's special mission in life is promoting
reading. Here's what librarians have to say about that. These are
thumbnail reviews of my show, librarians talking to other librarians
"An exploration of magic around the world,
via reading, with stops in Japan, India, China, Italy, Egypt, and
Kentucky. This is a high energy family show, with comedy, magic, and
huge amounts of audience participation. One of the library workers felt
Fashoo's performance was our best ever library program. He is flexible
and funny and had children standing in line to check out books on magic
Woodford County Library
"He was fantastic. This was our first
year, and the kids loved him. So did we!"
Flatwoods Public Library
"John Strauss is a wonderfully funny
magician. He uses books from different countries and talks about
different types of magic as he does his magic. John promotes the
library in a way that I have never seen a presenter do before. He tells
the children that the library is how he learned to be a magician. I
can't say enough good things about this performer."
McKibben, Rockcastle County Library
