Helen, I think your brochure is spectacular. I especially like the way you address the nature of your act, and audience interaction. The photos are quite appropriate, and overall I think, (with proper distribution) you will acheive success with them.

Rock On.

P.S. Pardon me for saying this, but the picture of you on the back, wearing thumb and handcuffs, almost makes me think you are female. (g)

Thanks guys Smile

Ros - fair point about the word "tricks" - maybe "stunts" would be more appropriate. I do a fair bit of magic in my act too and won't pretend to anyone that there's no trickery there, but my escapes are the McCoy; perhaps that word change will help make the distinction. Thanks for making the point.

Clyde - that bit about content of the act was by far the hardest part to write. There are a lot of very vulgar drag acts around who do go for shock above all else, and to avoid being tarred with that brush I wanted to make it clear that I was making an effort to offer more than that (I like to think I do classy drag Smile). Sayng so without either coming across as Ned Flanders in a dress or like I was apologising for my act was tricky (was it Bill Hicks that said never to apologise?) , but I think I've just about got the balance right; I suspect all bookers really want to know is that they can trust me to give a professional performance and not do anything stupid that they'll have to deal with afterwards - I know that's what I've appreciated most from acts when I've been involved in organising shows myself.

Say what! Such a a pretty face and dress, and none of those designed colored Korean handcuffs anywhere! The shame!

I pretty much agree with all that's been offered so far -- nicely written and presented, Helen. Can your copy writer do as well for a straight act? If so, please send along my email.

But I do agree with Ros about changing that one title to read something other than "Tricks". The Show, The Act, The Performance, for example... Or, perhaps with the gay/drag theme, something like "Her Trix" might work? Too bad your name isn't Trixie, that would have been too good.

Helen,

Great promo! Describing an act is hard especially when you want to leave options open as you have done. I think you did it well and I hope you have spurred others on to get their info together as well.

Thanks a Million for the eye catching and rather Bizarre Show Poster! I also like the fact that you are proud to present Tartan in your presentations. Obviously a Scotsman. Aye Ladd Smile
