At the weekend, I did a gig for 5 year-olds. I do a magic painting routine with two children.

One, little Nell, was a performer's dream. Pretty as anything, willing, obedient, and very, very giggly. She had a tendency to jiggle around a bit, so off the cuff I came up with a solution to keep her still.

"I'm going to give you the painting book to look after, Nell, yeah?" (Giggle - "yes") "But to make sure no one can get to it, I want you to stand on it, OK?"

Big mistake.

After the colours have gone from the silk hankies I go over to Nell to retrieve the book. She's still standing on it, but it's now in a pool of yellowish liquid. In her excitement, Nell has lost control of her bladder.

What to do? I decided, "the show must go on," and picking it up said, "Look the pictures are all coloured in now. Careful now - the paint is still wet!" The book was dripping wee all over the stage, and I was thinking, "I'm only halfway through the show. What do I do with the puddle of pi**?"

I sent the kids back to their seats. It was then that her dad realised what had happened, and without me asking went and got some paper towels, leant over the stage and mopped it up as I carried on.

No one else realised what had happened. Nell's dignity was preserved, but I need a new Magic Painting book!

LOL I was doing a show yesterday and was performing the cleaning handkerchief trick so I had 1 young gentleman holding 2 clothspins and a piece of cloths line, I talked to my other assistant for a minute then went back to this young gentleman who had stuck one end of the rope up his nose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've learned to be VERY observant with kids and the Pee Pee dance. I can usually tell if a kid need to go and I tell them to. Don't be shy to ask a kid if they need to use the washroom. (I just ask them quietly so no one else hears).

I always have two "wet wipes" ready behind my table, and they have come in useful over the years. I hope I never have to use them to wipe urine off my hands! However, I did have a kid sneeze once and he ended up with a face full of snot!

If it looks like the kid is going to wet themselves put them on the flying carpet illusion. The light hitting the pee cascading over the sides produces a very pretty effect.

I enjoyed these posts. I can visualize the Flying Carpet as well as the wet book.

Oh man. Nothing quite like pee shining through a nice strobe light awww now THAT is special effects. I am glad you handled it like you did. You kept the show going without drawing attention to the problem.

Oh that was bad. Funny... but bad. But it does prove that the show must go on and that you have to have an out and be able to handle situations that come up.
