If you can not figure out how to set rates you may not be ready for shows yet. Call all the other entertainers, pretend you are having a party and ask them their rates. If you are a kid, which I think you are, ask mommy or daddy to do this for you. Then set your rates the same as theirs.

However if you could not think of this simple solution, what are you going to do when the kids don't cooperate with you during a show. You have to be able to think on your feet. I don't think you're ready for shows.

Well for my general B-day show, which is comprised of a 45 min. show and 15 min. of balloon animals at the end, I charge $125 (thats American dollars). Prices are subject to change depending on the dynamics of the show.

thanks! i appreciate all your help. i do not know many entertainers in my local area therby i did not know who (or what) to ring. i've read things on other parts of this forum thing and now i have a pretty good idea.

(gee... it's amzing on how much some people can learn from what i wrote. i AM a kid and i am getting together a routine, that's why i said iam "planning" on starting at kids shows)

um i'm just wondering how much australian money compairs to american...? but that all depends on the tricks if its all like card tricks and only a few interactive or visual things than only about 125(us) but if u have a colorfull routine and many interactive things than u could bring it up to about 200.

aznshadyboi1 a really neat trick you could do is use a dictionary and write in english as what you have written is just a whole load of jibberish.
write normal and use normal words and you will get taken more seriously and people will be more willing to help you.
