<<<<<<<I'm now at a point where now I pass b-day parties on to newcomers, if I am booked for the day. >>>>>>>

I pass on work to people if I'm busy, but only to people I know are good. If you pass work onto someone who's rubbish it's your name the booker will remember as the one who reccomended them.

Any newcomer in my area would have to prove themselves before I'd pass on work to them. I've got a few friends who I'd never reccomend as I know how they work and they don't meet my high standards. They know I don't give their names out and why, but their opinion is I set my standards to high. When discussing how we all operate they often say "you don't need to do that, you can get away with just doing this, the booker doen't care" To which I always answer "If they don't care, why am I doing twice as much work as you then?"

Lovely idea Chrystal - but if back in '78 when we started we'd have tried this it would have just been a brick wall of grumpy old guys trying to do each other down. There was also a guy at the time doing vast amounts of advertising - who, wait for it! - had a history of indecent assault! There are others present now who continuously let people down or even try and up the fee the day before!! It must be nice to live in an area/Country where all one's colleagues are beautiful, - but I'm afraid all ours are not! Thus I am more prepared to talk to you guys around the globe than many other 'entertainers' in my locality.

I am moving to an new area in September and I'm going to try to be honest first and see how it works. If that doesn't work, I'll just have my girlfriend call for prices for a party.
By the way, does anyone know any good agents in Chicago?

Notice from your website Edd that you cover many facets of magical entertaining, so you probably will need Agents. If it were us now at our particular stage in life and the business, we would just appear on the Chicago scene to coincide with new editions of Yellow Pages. We'd find out what time spans, what fees, and what type of programmes others did for kids parties. We'd have loads of giveaways with publicity to start off with, and after a few months would expect to have a very big 'broom' indeed sweeping away. We'd not however alert any other entertainers to our imminent forthcoming presence - but that is just the way we would do it.

Edd,
Chrystal is right networking is the way to go. Visit the magic shops and talk to them... A wealth of info there. They will also know when and where the magic clubs meet, and where the lectures are. Good way to meet the others in person, you can discuss business and find out which agents are the best to work for...
