OK when you add the activities in then there is no problem with the time, I was referring to just a magic act. The kids attention span won't hold much longer than 30 min. Add balloons or a game and your fine with longer shows.

There really is a market out there if you go after it. An easy way to find out is offer to do a few freebies for civic clubs in your area... Kiwanis, Optimist, Rotary. It's a great way to network and the clubs are hungry for speakers/entertainment. You can plug a mini-show to open corporate meetings. I've yet to find a group that would not allow me to talk about my biz, or hand out promo material.

They don't pay much, but in my area (Kansas City), they will pay about $200 for you to come in and open a meeting with 10-15 max minutes of magic...working out of a briefcase. It's slightly more than what a singing-telegram would cost. If you can add a themed message, even better.

Make sure your customers never lose your information,

I am again doing a 20-minute show at a restaurant for an adult birthday party Wednesday night.

I now believe there is a market for shorter shows. Just like the good old days!
