You dont NEED to lose the tricks, if it is a show for like kids age 6+ they can handle the card tricks just try and mix it up with the other tricks do like one-two card tricks then go onto another trick.

I would say it depends on how long your performance is going to last. I say an hou long show and 2 people atleast 80 bucks if it more that that add 1 dollar a minute.

Lose the card TRICKS! You don't do all those tricks in one show do you?
Five maybe six is enough, for about a forty five minute show. Depends on your locale but $100.00 is a good start.

I would say keep Card Toon because it is very visual.

The material you have mentioned there wouldn't be much good for a show. It would be ok for close-up for kids but not for a show. Also tricks aren't much good on there own, you need showmanship, patter and good control.

The best thing I can recommend is David Ginn's books. They will tell you everything you need to know about kids shows. It gives you routines, recommends tricks and most importantly tells you how to manage kids and entertain them.

I would charge about $10.

Here is why. You have a lot of card tricks, which most kids don't understand. You told us that you perform the tricks. With the tricks I do in my show, if I just went through and did the tricks, I wouldn't charge more than $20. I entertain them and not just show them a bunch of tricks like you are planning on doing. Read some other topics in this section to find out about how to routine your shows. Magic isn't about the tricks; it is about the presentation and entertainment.

Up to now, it looks as if you have been collecting magic tricks that appeal to you personally. Now you have to change your thinking and focus on tricks that will fit into your show and will appeal to the audience you plan to work for. It's no longer important if the trick fools YOU, but if you can use it to fool your AUDIENCE.

Yes!

He has GREAT books on this topic.

Also, check out Samuel Patrick Smith.


I own a book of his called "Kiddie Patter And Little Feats."


It rules.
