That's one of those questions that usually gets a roundabout answer. I just read "The Approach," by Jamie Kennedy, where he answers the question directly, both in terms of dollars, as well as a formula to use to calculate rates.

It's not a cheap book ($75 from Penguin including shipping,) but it's one of those investments that should pay for itself if you put the info to use.

Depends how much you think you're worth? Ask yourself "how much would you pay to see you?" If you are just starting, odds are you aren't that great (being honest not mean), so you shouldn't charge that much. There are many factors into pricing; distance traveled, length of performance, the tricks you are performing, the venue, these are some factors. It's always safe to undercharge at first; you want to leave them with the feeling that they got more than what they expected (which will probably lead to a tip). Are you better than the hourly minimum wage? If so, by how much? Good luck!!
