You also know that the British school of children's entertainment is quite different from the American school. Some of the shrewder American magicians have taken up the British style and are far better for it.
This is certainly true, and I find that by continuing to entertain the British way, as is my heritage, it has caused me to have an edge over my competitors on this side of the pond. I am also a big fan of "Open Sesame". What do you believe, Mark, to be the reason for the British superiority in this field? I think it has much to do with our tradition of Pantomime, which the Americans know nothing of....
As for your accusation of me being a troublemaker, I consider that is akin to the pot calling the kettle black. By the way, I sincerely hope you will contribute to the thread discussing MY You Tube video. JR
