Forget the chair until after the gig. Then you'll KNOW whether or not you are itching for a career change.

I agree. I would get the chair after the show. Make sure you want to make an investment into this type of performing first.

I wish you all the best for your show, but I must admit that I find it somewhat impolite from that lady that she didn´t ask you first if you would like to do a show for her son. I mean, it´s your spare time...but maybe that´s just me. ;-)

How long are you doing magic? Do you feel confident with it? (If you are showing tricks at your office, you probably are)

I think you got some great tips, although I have absolutely no idea about magic as I am a total newbie...hehehe. I would also try to keep it simple, no scary stuff nothing too complicated. Also I would hand out a lot of stuff to the kids....candy, toys, balloons and such things. Also if you need some ideas for presentation maybe it might be a good idea to get a book with jokes for kids or find a webpage that contains some funny stuff. But I guess you have a lot of good ideas as you make a nice and houmorous impression.

Let us know how it went. I am sure you will perform great.

P.S. Please excuse my strange english...I am german. ;-)
Practice doesn´t make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect...

I'm not a pro-but believe me that it is more difficult performing for kids than adulds/teens.But don't let this discourage you-go for it!I'm glad to see Brad Burt giving advise.His opinion can always be used.The effects he mentioned are classics.There is one effect that should also not be underestimated-20th century silk with bra/underpants gag.The children love this!
Good Luck
AJ
