About the Author
Comic magician, Tim Gabrielson, has one goal when he steps on stage: Keep It Funny. A native of Minnesota, Tim began performing at a local theme park at age 16. His comedic wit and natural timing combined with magical prowess quickly made him a park favorite and landed him a contract with a local agency. He soon became one of the Midwest s youngest and fastest rising entertainers. Tim’s shows exceeded 200 per year and provided limitless exposure to every imaginable audience; which gave him the additional ability to handle any crowd. His increasing popularity took him from a best kept secret among the college venue to a highly sought after performer. Tim’s business is magic, but for this consummate professional it s much more than the tricks. “People are always talking about the technicality of magic. You have to be good, but the magic by itself is meaningless. Do you entertain the crowd? Can you grab an audience in the first few minutes and hold their attention? You can be a fabulous magician, but if you can’t entertain the crowd, people aren’t going to come back. I don’t want to be just a good magician. I want to be a great entertainer.” Tim’s keep it funny philosophy is apparent throughout his laugh-a-minute- show. He prides himself in providing a clean performance in which he takes it to the line, but never crosses. His wide appeal makes his a show enjoyable for all types of audiences. And it didn’t take long to gain the attention of agents and producers alike; which landed him fill-in spots for Vegas headliners like Ron Lucas and Mac King before acquiring his own room on the Las Vegas Strip.

First off, the title of this book says it all. This is a useful, witty and clever guide to having more fun in your life. Many of the suggestions/activities if you will, are way outside the adult box and if attempted will cause you to feel eight years old again. Even if you don’t actually care them out, you will laugh just thinking about the scenario. Then, while finding yourself bored in WalMart, or waiting at the Dentist office,one of Tim’s ideas may just jump into your head and you’ll feel spontaneous enough to go big, cause a scene and laugh your a&% off as a result. Lemons to Laughter is a light hearted read that drives home the message “Don’t take life too seriously, and you’ll have way more fun.”
