Sometimes, some of us just have a kind spirit, and like giving to a good cause or something. I love what Chub does for hospitals. Sure, the hospital has money. But if the hospital isn't willing to spend the money on entertainment for the patients, the patients (especially children) should still be able to have some entertainment. Chub, I really respect what you do for these children!
Exactly, I do 3 - 4 shows a week for various hospitals, I'm sure if I only accepted pay shows they would not get me in that often (maybe once a month, who knows, maybe never). Making money is fine, but that's not the bottom line in life for me.
Cmon Paddy, even you can see the difference between doing subpar free shows to gain experience (which I really dislike)... and doing a professional show to brighten a sick kids day. I'm not here to tread on peoples turf though, I am a professional entertainer (clown, comedian, musician, stuntsman) but when it comes to magic I've only been at it for 2 years and haven't performed *any* professionally... so I'm here to learn (and so far your posts have been the most helpful, along with Kyles and Sluggo's).
I never knew Gospel magic was so large, I've never seen any ministry over in Australia taught that way... someone should youtube a performance some time, I am really interested.
