Almost going back on what I have said earlier, it is a necessity really to be covered in case of accidents. I've never had to claim on it, but its a nice thought knowing that if anything did happen i'd be covered.

Exactly! Especially when we live in a world where everyone is sue-happy. I work too hard for what we have to see it all taken away when compared to the small price of a premium.

You can be young and perform to adults. THey won't tell you when you mess up, they will be polite and clap even when they thought you sucked.

Kids are not the same. You have to have a much higher level of maturity to performfor children.

Dude, I'm fifteen too and I have a lot of clients. I perform for my local Rec center, for B-days and stuff, and my age doesn't seem to hamper my audience at all. In fact, it has helped me with my Kids shows because I can usually connect to them more. Hope this helps...

I mean this with no disrespect, but if you address your elders as "Dude" then you are still too young to be performing.

Again, no disrespect, but you have to have a maturity level beyond the typical teenager to build a successful clientele and business.

However, I do wish you the best of luck with your endeavors.

I wasn't addressing my "elders". I was addressing the topic starter, who is also fifteen, in case you've forgotten. Who are you to talk maturity? Do you know me? I'm very mature when it counts, and I'm very successful for my age.

I apologize if I misunderstood your post as it sounded as if you were addressing ukcop who would be considered an "elder". As I previously stated, I meant no disrespect and was making a general comment on the maturity and respectfulness it takes when one is a youth performer and trying to build a clientele in a market that is normally geared towards the older magician. It can be very hard to be taken seriously as a youth performer so you must always show a maturity level equal to your adult peers when conducting oneself.

As to who I am, I am a member of the S.A.M. who frequents the board in hopes of helping the younger generation any way I can through our own experiences. Yes, I would be one of those "elders". I am also the mother of a youth performer who knows just how difficult it can be on the younger generation. I believe in supporting the younger generation because without them magic will become a dying art form.

Hey, I want to apologize for being rude in my post. I get irritated with those who question my maturity. The last of my posts could have been directed at anybody so I understand where you could have made a mistake and thought I was speaking to somebody older. I noticed your screen name- are you Kristen Lambert's mom? If you are, COOL!!! :D

This is very simple to answer....

Are you too young to perform for adults....
A short answer- "No."
A better answer- "Yes."

I, myself had the same problem because I began performing shows at a young age too. Being young will not prevent you from performing for adults. And even at that, you can still fool and get good reactions from adults. However, there is still a mentality level that cannot be changed by maturity.
There are certain life experiences that a 30 year old has that a 15 year old can not. It's not necessarily about the maturity level. It's just tough to explain.
Try this for example....
If a 15 year old started performing for some adults and had sexual -related material in his act. the adults would think that this kid is totally out of control and needs to watch his language.
However, if a 30 year old did the same material... same jokes... same performance the adults would more than likely think it is funny or would be able to relate to it better.

It sucks but that's how it is. You're limited to your performance towards adults. You're limited to the types of reactions you will get from adults. It's nothing that can be changed. Only time will affect it.
