Jef Eaton was first introduced to magic at age six, when he got a magic kit for Christmas. He dabbled with magic as a child, putting on shows for the neighbor kids. Later he got interested in puppets and started performing with his cousin doing shows for birthday parties, scout groups, and banquets. Their business prospered until Jef was fourteen, when he gave it up to play rock and roll in a local band. Jef continued his musical career touring the United States with bands before serving his country in Vietnam. Upon his return to the states, he again played music until 1975 when “THE MAGICIAN” series with Bill Bixby came on TV and rekindled an old flame. Kandu the Magician magically appeared that same year, and has been entertaining family audiences ever since.
The KANDU MAGIC SHOW has traveled nationwide entertaining family audiences performing at conventions, fairs, festivals, with symphony orchestras, and even at a zoo!
Kandu and Jill The Music Lady create a show like no other. Incorporating live music, sound effects, sight gags, slapstick comedy and audience participation, this show captivates both the young and the young at heart.
Just to give fairgoers that extra entertainment, Kandu has brought along his Wild & Wacky Game Show. This fun packed show picks all contestants from the audience and involves games with hula hoops, balloons, balls, buckets, butterfly nets and even plungers!
You have to see this one to believe it!
