Origin of Professor Fire

Today’s guest blog by Professor Fire

It was crisp fall day, late 1960’s in a little town in New Jersey. The kids were playing and hanging around while the adults burned large piles of leaves, filling the yard with a pleasant aroma. Then, for reasons I still don’t understand, my “friend” decided to push me in.

Thanks to Levi’s and their flame-retardant material, the physical injuries weren’t that bad and healed fairly fast. But the psychological ones were another story…

For decades, I could not get near fire in any form. Even a small birthday candle was terrifying. If for any reason I had to light a match I would pray for it not to work, if it did, I would drop it and jump back.

Time passed and new friends came into my life with similar yet different interests, one of which was fire. I would of course sit as far away as possible as I watched them practice, but soon my fascination grew. I would edge a little closer each time, and despite the fear I eventually found myself wanting to try it. It started out with just being able to hold a lit torch (a big step). Eventually I worked my way up to actually eating fire, transforming from scared and scarred child to master of combustible ingestion, the moment Professor Fire was born.

So always remember, don’t let fear run your life. Face your fears, or your fears just might run your life.

You can see Professor Fire perform live as part of ‘The Show’ at Kip Barry’s Cabaret, located in the Garden Walk in Anaheim.

Vaudeville in Anaheim

Starting with Magic and Variety Shows, Staring Kip Barry and his cast of Wonderful Guest Performers every Thurs-Sun!  We’ve brought Vaudeville to Anaheim in a Modern State of The Art Way!

 But, “what is Vaudeville?” you might ask. Well, let us give you a small history lesson as to why it was such a big part of American culture.

If you look at the definition of Vaudeville it is “theatrical entertainment consisting of a number of individual performances, acts, or mixed numbers, as by comedians, singers,dancers, acrobats, and magicians.”


Vaudeville basically started the boom of entertainment becoming a big business. In the early 1880’s, a former ringmaster, Tony Pastor, made Vaudeville more appealing to audiences of all genders and ages. Before that it was more risque and usually catered towards male audiences.

Pastor also didn’t allow liquor to be sold during shows, as well as any other inappropriate acts to be performed. Then came along Benjamin Franklin Keith and his partner Edward Franklin Albee. They created such an appealing show for everyone, that even The Catholic Church in Boston helped fund to create more theaters!

Unfortunately when television and radio became more popular, the Vaudeville theatres dwindles and eventually, disappeared.

But, we here at Kip Barry’s Cabaret would like to give that experience to the world again!

Kip Barry

Kip began entertaining at a very young age, but became interested in magic after seeing Harry Blackstone, Jr. at the age of 9.

Kip believes in sharing his gift to spread smiles, happiness and goodwill around the world.

According to Kip, People should share their talents for the greater good. With so many challenges going on around the world, we just try to have a place where people can enjoy some good cheer”.

Disneyland 101, Tips and Tricks to get the most out of it.

here are some tips and tricks to help you survive Disneyland and enjoy “the happiest place on earth“.


Arrive early. Lines are shortest in the morning because, let’s face it, who wants to wake up that early? You do.

Avoid Trolley from Parking Lot – Walk

If you can stay awake for a few extra hours, the late showings of Fantasmic and World of Color are significantly less crowded.

Bring Water Bottles, Snacks in Backpack

The classic, kid-friendly Fantasyland attractions like Peter Pan can become insanely crowded in the afternoon. You’ll find the shortest waits first thing in the morning; alternatively, going during a daytime parade offers a slight relief from the crowd crunch.



Download “My Disney Experience App”, everything about your vacation in one app: park tickets, dinner reservations, PhotoPass, hotel reservations, Fastpass+ and much of the resort’s maps and information.

Just about everything is less crowded during the Disneyland fireworks (except for Fantasyland and Toon Town attractions, which close during the show).

Downtown Disney Parking: 5 Hrs Free Validated

If you’re tall or not too concerned about finding the perfect spot, don’t waste more than twenty minutes or so lining up for fireworks or a parade.

Eat In Downtown Disney: Way Better Food



The attractions around New Orleans Square and Frontierland are least crowded during Fantasmic—but get in line right as the show ends and you’re in for a world of pain.

The rides don’t close at park closing, rather the entrance to the line does. So at one minute before closing, hop on that last ride.

Kid’s Rides After 9 PM: Less Crowded

That said, everyone flocks to Space Mountain at the very end of the night.

Phone Charging Stations: Main Street/Buena Vista

The shops on Main Street and Buena Vista Street stay open for an hour after closing, so save that ice cream cone and souvenir shopping until after hours. Or stop at World of Disney in Downtown Disney to find everything in one spot.

Watch Fireworks From Innoventions Hall



If you’re looking to travel to and from the Downtown Disney area, the monorail is a fun shortcut that typically doesn’t have a huge wait. Plus, the nearby lots offer three hours of free parking; you’ll save money this way if your visit is under six hours, but stay longer and you’ll pay considerably more than the garage.

As you leave attractions with an on-ride photo, don’t forget to snap your own shot of the screen.

Pack an extra pair of socks if you plan on riding Splash Mountain or Grizzly River Run.

FastPass, Disney’s free ride time reservation system, is your best bet at avoiding lines. These passes (available at some of the parks’ most popular attractions) are stamped with a specific return time that’ll allow you to hop on a separate, express line. You’ll have to board the ride within the hour window printed on the ticket, and, generally, you can only hold one FastPass at a time.


Kip Barry’s Cabaret: The Second happiest place on earth!

When your Disneyland visit is over, don’t let the magic disappear, join us for a great show; Kip Barry’s Cabaret is the best way to end your trip!
