The Successful Performercast is the show where I interview one full-time professional entertainer per week with the goal of inspiring and equipping those who are working to make the leap themselves. This is a show for all performers whether you’re a magician, a comedian, a juggler, or anything in between. You’ll hear and learn from the pros that are actually out there making a living doing what they love.

I focus on questions designed to learn about each entertainer’s journey, struggles and victories while at the same time drawing out inspiration and tangible business advice that will help our listeners build their own businesses as entertainers.

Excellent podcast series for any/all performers!

While dominated by magicians (my passion, as well as Mr. Sheppard's), the Successful PerformerCast also sprinkles in healthy doses of interviews with musicians, comedians and jugglers. The overarching theme of these hour-long discussions is how these primarily solo performance artists made the transition to become full-time performers, and the lessons learned from their failures and successes along the way that might benefit others looking to embark on similar journeys. I am an avid magic podcast listener, and find that Kris's interviews fit nicely between the strongly business-oriented (and aptly-named) Magician's Business Podcast and more historical, "stories-from-the-road", performance-based podcasts, such as Scott Wells' The Magic Word Podcast. It continues to fascinate me that magic, which is almost wholly a visual art, is so well-served by a large number of audio-only podcasts. With the Successful PerformerCast, Kris Sheppard has refined the focus and broadened the scope beyond just magic to provide a consistently enjoyable podcast that offers useful insights and life lessons of benefit any solo artist/performer.

Great to listen to

Great podcast, I love to listen to and from gigs. Would love to hear more clowns/physical comedians a la Avner Eisenberg.
