In 1994, a strange occurrence in Mooresville, Alabama, left police offers dumbfounded and left the residents of this quiet town petrified in what was called, "The Mystery of the Clown Killer”. The case, re-opened in 2004, on the anniversary of the murders - still left stones unturned and doors unopened. 13 people all shot in the exact same way, with no way into the room and no way out of the room. Was he one of the clowns found that day? Is he still on the run? Will he show his face at the seance? 

Welcome to year three of ‘Tackling Terrifying Taboos’ - The Year of the Clown. This year, things get scary as we explore ’The seance’. Using some of the techniques used in the previous two courses plus tons of new ideas, we are going to hold a very special live seance like no other. Non of the crew, co-hosts or audience members have been briefed about what is going to happen. 

This is a full act you can put together and start doing right away. We discuss building set pieces, dealing with the pre-seance, the dark seance and building in effects. We will talk about making everything flow and using magic to confirm the spirits are really in the room. Finally, we will discuss how some of the effects in the seance can be used as stand alone pieces. Also learn how to make a set of unique spirit slates that can be examined before, the spectators place face to face, can be triggered secretly in the hands of the spectator and can be examined after without the performer needing to take anything away or switch anything. Did I mention, they can be made with things you’ll find in your local pound/dollar store and a few extras that are very inexpensive! 

Finally, this year, we are joined by the legend that is Terry Tyson! After a 35 year in the corporate world, Terry has returned to his first love of magic, mentalism and séance performance. His mystery performer effects and essays have appeared in Séance Magazine, The New Invocation, MAGICK, The Big Book and the Bigger Book of Boo, to name a few. For the last several years Terry is a frequent keynote speaker, workshop facilitator, consultant and corporate entertainer. He is known for weaving mind reading and magic into his talks to illustrate cogent message points. Terry is a member of the Psychic Entertainers Association and most recently the British Society of Mystery Performers.

Terry will be sharing his thoughts on Bottle Pendulums, Spirit Bells, Animating Objects, Spirit Messages and Seance Structure as well as chipping in and providing his pearls of dark wisdom throughout the course! 

This really is a course you do NOT want to miss! 

We will see you at the Seance!

Even if the jump scare is not your style, or you have done seances before, you will fine at least one thing in these two days well worth your investment. I'm not a newbie to seance work, or bizarre magick, and found several nuggets of gold. It was also a delight to see Terry Tyson after reading his offerings in Seance magazine. TTT3 was my second purchase in the series. After watching it, I purchased the first one, and plan to re-watch the first. All 3 are well worth the price of admission.


i have followed this from the first one and found number 3 incredible so much to learn and well presented, well don every one and the brilliant Jamie Daws.

Madison Hagler

This has been such a fun live! The seances were both very different showing two totally different sides of how to present one. One is more in your face and jump scare. The other is more subtle and eerie. Really great ideas presented throughout!

Scott Clark

What a great second night. My sytle is more like Terry's. There has been plenty of great ideas going around. And would love to pick his brains. In the nicest way possible.

Rob Watrin

The Tackling Terrifying Taboos series are fantastic! Last year was great but this year is maybe even better, Jamie and Terry outdone themselves. Great storytelling and effects. The price for this is absolutely mental! Even if you don't perform bizarre magic, it is just a fun watch and you will get something out of it for sure.

Alexander Ross

Day 2 with Terry Tyson is awesome! Just listening to the discussions teaches so much! NO more needs to be said.

Richard Weston

Yet more fantastic spooky stuff from the furtive mind of Jamie Daws. Great material from the bottomless crypt that is his insane psyche, with just a few screams for good measure. To contrast this year he has a special guest, Terry Tyson, who's serious and almost spiritual demeanor brings a completely different and yet just as spooky feeling to the academy this year. This is yet another year of brilliant stuff that you can use to freak out those near and dear to you and maybe even those not so near and dear. Maybe even those that have past!!! This is a brill academy, especially for the slightly twisted. Just brill.

Ivan Cobham

Two night of everything you need to deliver a performance that hit home. Discussions on all sorts performance art/ ethics and safety/ emotional narratives. Whether you like to play it serious or have fun with some comedy you'll definitely find something useful in Jamie Daws Academy lectures to freak out you friend family this Halloween.

Steve Smith

A different direction for the Academy, but for anyone who wishes to branch out into Bizarre magic or have a Halloween set...this course offers an absolute mountain of first class effects. Many of these can be constructed for little cost and full advice is given throughout.

Sam Fuller

No words!! Again! A terrifying trilogy!! Jamie is incredible. The work, the details he goes into! And this year is so far the best and the darkest yet! Not one piece is worth the price of all is! Looking forward to day 2 if day 1 is anything to go by. Wow. See you for year 4. Not sure how it could be topped? Might need to genuinely channel a spirit.

Roy Smith

Fantastic event and teaching. More than enough information, inside tips to st up my own very very spooky and ralistic seance. Definetly will be learning thius, adapting and setting up my own event. Thank you.

Brian Stewart

Well you certainly know what to expect with Jamie Daws - the unexpected, and so it was with his latest Academy: Tackling Terrifying Taboos 3, the year of the clown. Jamie, with the help of Terry Tyson gave an insight into holding a seance and what was needed to create the right atmosphere - WOW did they succeed. This was something very new to me but it certainly gets your creative juices flowing with ideas that are dark but don't necessarily need to be in a seance setting. A great first night and I am looking forward to the studio work to come.


Jamie has cracked it again with yet another excellent Academy. I have bought the previous two and thoroughly enjoyed them, and today's show is just as good. Great detail and lots of good ideas. A truly spooky and "realistic" seance event. The discussion has been so informative. Great use of voice control and emphasis.

Scott Clark

What an amazing course. Jamie has gone dark with this one. A great seance. With plenty of insights on his thinking. I live near a haunted house! So think It will be great to use there.

Alexander Ross

When I signed up for this Alakazam Academy I was a bit Sceptical! (Not any more :-) It is only the first night and even if you are not into some of this type of Magic you will learn so much more that some things can be used for. It is well worth the time and cost!

Steve Black

Absolutely fantastic !!! The first part was a little difficult to see but was justified by reference to atmosphere and story and how this would work in a real performance. The explanation and construction of the props was informative and very clever. Jamie is an engaging and knowledgeable teacher. This is only the first day !!!! Highly recommended !!

Richard Groom

Where else do you get a seance handed to you on a plate. Great and spooky effects that you can make yourself using cheap arts and crafts to produce authentic and pricey looking props. Where else do you get the legend that is Terry Tyson. Where else can get a third helping of the brilliantly weird and bizarre world of Jamie Daws. The Alakazam Academy is knocking it out of the park again.

Mark Call

I am only 32 minutes in and I am already FREAKED OUT! Jamie's story telling and teaching is LIKE NO OTHER! TTT-3 is an absolute MUST for a bit darker feeling. UNBELIEVABLE how GENIUS the creations are for this Academy and Jamie teaches it ALL so you CAN adapt to your own style! There truly IS something for everyone in this ..... highly recommend!
