I don't see what we are arguing over but you have made it clear you have done 1 count them 1, kidshow for money...
do you mind sharing why you turned down "all those others" that wanted you? Was it because you don't do/like kidshows...or because of something else?
That's pretty much it, I generally just don't like doing kids shows. It takes a completely different frame of mind to do kids shows as compared to my normal shows and I just don't enjoy doing them as much. I am certainly not someone you'd expect to do kids shows. Generally I'm a cynical [edited] and to really do a kid show justice I have to be in a great frame of mind. For the most part, the stress of trying to put myself into that frame of mind is not worth the effort involved.
The fact that I work all day with children with mental illness probably adds to the fact that when I am not at my real job, kids are the last thing I want to deal with.
When there is a fantastic kids magician right here in town, I don't see a point in doing them when I can just pass them off to him. I have done several shows for friends of mine, but I don't ask them to pay. If anything, they will kick in for a new trick or something so they feel better about it.
So to answer your question as to why I turn them down... it's because I can.
I have a mild form of agorophobia, so being on stage is stressfull for me to begin with. Having to be on stage performing for kids is even more so and unless I have a really good reason for it, I'm not going to get worked up over it.
