I'm interested in a particular question. In the UK 90% on the kids shows I do are two hour packages consisting on a magic show, balloons, games and a mini disco. I get the impression however that in other countries (especially the States) one hour packages are more popular. Is this actually the case and if so why?

I am definitely a part-timer but I typically do 30-45 minutes of magic in a family show or a birthday party show. Not being in the business to make a living I don't want to do all that other stuff! My gigs are usually at fairs and outdoor parties or picnics.

Hi Craig:
I'm a Big fan of your work. "Locked in a Room without coins" is a great dvd on card magic and I like the way of think in "Attack of the bag" for a prop that before see your work I found unusable.
About Kid Shows, well. Here in Puerto Rico ( Almost the same in the states) is very popular a One hour show, and you can add Face painting, balloons, Mini Disco, Cotton candy...you name it! But I need to confess the most popular request here in Puerto Rico is The one hour magic show.
My best,
Hansel!

Thanks Hansel, thanks for the comments.

I actually use the coin bag in my Kids Show! I have a coin bag which and on the back I have put a massive Skull and Crossbones. I use pirate dubloons in the bag and tell the kids it is a cursed pirate purse and no matter how hard a pirate tried the money cannot be taken from the bag. I then go into Chop Bag off the DVD with a pirate presentation. Its a great routine and works really well especially for younger kids!

Hope this helps

Craig
