Right now I'm 17 and I've been doing magic since I was about 14. I don't really do kid magic, but I realized that because of my age if I try to put a show together for adults I'm not going to be taken as seriously as someone maybe in their mid 20 and up. And I don't want to be out of doing magic for 10 years until I can be taken seriously as an entertainer. So thats why I've decided to do shows for kids until I get a little older. So this post is basically just to ask for any help you guys can give me.
You got this "Fact" from where? Because your wrong.
1) Best ways to get bookings (I read in one post that you should do a free show at a public library and at the end give out your business cards)
2) good tricks that kids love
3) how much should I charge
4) how long to make a show ( I don't want to make it to long, the kids could get restless)
5) sould I do a couple of tricks for the adults at the party, or should I just be focused on the kids
If there are any questions I'm missing feel free to add them to the list and answer them
I was doing shows for adults at that age, as were (and are) many other performers.
Its all in how you present yourself.
Dont do it, enless you really want to. If you dont enjoy it, your most likely going to fail.
If thats your only reason to start doing kids shows... its not a good one.
Kids shows are alot harder to put on. Trust me.
