Hi, my names Olly, and I come from good ole England. I'm 13 years old and have been playing around with magic since I was 5, but only started to get serious in the last 2 years. I have been trying out cards but my hands are a bit on the small side so I am going to come back to them in a few years, and plan to start doing stage for relatives' children, as well as a few bits and pieces where I can. I prefer the "no way!" or "Woa!" side of magic, tricks such as coin through rubber, Cardiographic and Fruit Salad sit well with me, as well as humourous magic.
I think thats it.

Hey Olly!

Welcome to the Cafe!
My name is Josh, but you can call me Bird Brain, and I'm 16! It's good to see some teenagers on here! I'm from the US. Have you ever been to the States?
Good luck with your magic! As I'm new to the field, and haven't done any "big gigs", I've found that the best way to go about getting shows is to offer to do free shows for events at community centers and the like! I got a few gigs that way!

I'll talk to you later!

5150,
Bird Brain

Hey Olly! Welcome to the Cafe! Sounds like you have got a great start in the art. I was about 9 years old too when I first got interested, be careful... Magic can soon take over your life!

Thanks for the welcomes guys!

Birdbrain- Yes, I have been to the States 3 times, once to see Monsieur Mouse and his animated companions, and two times to ski. And yep, Teenage magicians will rule the world one day, it's just a matter of time.

We will rule! And I WiLL LEAD THEM! just kidding. :rotf:

Rule the World? All I want to rule is a straight line.
Welcome Olly. Don't worry about the size of your hands, I think Malini did alright and he reputedly had small hands too.
And your audiences will probably appreciate a magician who isn't fixated on cards.
What a novelty!

Welcome aboard, Olly.
And be grateful your hands are too small for card tricks right now (your audiences will be!) :bg:
cheers,

Us 20-something magicians will crush you teenage magicians like puny insects.

Olly,
It really is good to see teenagers here. Stay with it, we're all here to help. I second Peter's statement. There's a lot more magic out there than cards, so don't feel bad and your audiences really will love you. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Welcome Olly!

Ok, guys, if you teens are going to do it, you had better hurry up and take over, cause you won't be teens for much longer!

It may not seem that way now - but time has a way of putting things in your rear view mirror before you realize it!

Good to have you here!

Don't worry people, I have my takeover plan all ready for using when I need to. :devilish:

I must admit I don't like cards too much myself anyway I prefer to do magic with things that you don't usually do magic with anyway.
