Again, Vick's comments were about quality regardless of medium. How is that message getting lost?

Thank you.

It's about a quality performance and presentation.

Not some joker getting some out of the box tricks and stringing them together in an incoherent fashion.

This discussion took a turn away from quality to comparing adult vs. children entertainers.

There seems to be more hacks doing kid shows.

It's art, please treat it as such,

and the point about Disney pleasing both!!!


Now I'm off to do 2 shows, have a magical and professional experience.

It is you that mentioned children 9 times in your first post.

Once more in your last post you say; "There seems to be more hacks doing kid shows"

I am speaking of quality and the way we judge it. Since you brought up the subject of children and the quality of magic, then I give you my opinion that children’s magicians are often misjudged for the reasons I put above.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

He is not judging children's magicians, he is admonishing poor magicians in general. He just happen to use children's magicians as his example.

I wish I had the time to go deeper with this, but I don't...

You mean as the police say here “Not carnival related”:

Quote:
There's been 3 floats destroyed, 5 sound systems stolen, 2 gun point robberies, 4 indecent assaults and 12 reported incidents of steaming in the last 24 hours. Also there was a small localised riot around the BoomBoom Crew's sound stage at 4am, after local residents complained of a noise nuisiance to the council. Happily we've just heard that the environment officer who attempted to turn the volume down will be out of intensive care in a few days, doctors are hopeful he'll function quite normally with only one lung. Ready for it........ All of these reported crimes we can safely say are not carnival related, so feel free to bring the family and kids along to soak up some of the great carnival atmosphere expected here today'.
