The Variety Artist with John Abrams – Weekly chats with inspiring Performers

By John Abrams

What are the secrets of being a successful variety artist? Making my living performing for the past 20 years performing, I’ve figured out some things. I’ve also met some fascinating and successful people. All doing what they love. I call them “The Variety Artists”. How did they do it? What are their successes? What were their failures? How can we emulate what they did? You can be a fly on the wall and listen to these interviews. Performers learning from performers. You can learn along with me as I delve into what makes a successful variety artist. For more info and video courses for just about any art, go to TheVarietyArtist.com.
