What about the kids reactions? Almost every kid I perform that to says it's boring. There are a lot of similar and better effects.

FYI, I perform it, if not as good as the demo vid, better with patter.

In that case, stick with the bendy pen or the kids cards. I think the funniest illusion for kids (Oz's routine) would have to be the PB&J illusion.

Oz has the suckiest driest routine for the pb&j illusion that I have EVER seen...and I have seen MANY. I do not think that Oz does or even likes kidshow...just from what I have seen.

Yeah, big deal so I'm fifteen:shock: I wasn't born yesterday pal.

But anyway... I'm dont feel that I'm too young to do kid shows. I have no experience in this field but isn't that how everyone starts out???
I simply was looking for advice on how I should go about starting to perform at kid shows.

Its not an issue of starting off, the problem is that you want to start off with making money and performing for the general public. When you should be starting off as a hobbiest for several years before you even consider paid shows. It's not that you cant start doing shows, its that you shouldnt so soon.
