Age is just a number. One thing that is important is your strength. If you do not mind lifting heavy objects no problem. If heavy weight lifting is an issue to you I recommend "packs small, plays big" props for you to work with.


I was a "week-end warrior" birthday party magician and clown for many years, and Dynamike is spot-on with this. I would make 3 trips back and forth to the car, and it would take 20 minutes to set the show. I was busy, but finally was beginning to wear out.

Today its one suitcase for the puppet and I work the show out of a busker's pouch. My back and legs/feet have thanked me tremendously.

I have many different shows. However, I have a pack small plays big show I take to Libraries that have no parking.
The Librarian said, as I showed up, where is all your stuff? I said, right here in this bag.
I had the kids screaming and laughing for 46 minutes. I even had to cut one of my routines.
You do not need big props to do a good show. You need good routines and showmanship to do a good show.
You are the entertainer, not your props. Cheers!

This is a wonderful thread full of great information. I'm in my 50's and I really enjoyed reading it.
