My grandmother used to tell me all the time, "Do not call children 'kids'. Kids are baby goats." So I thought I'd add this to my show.

I'll explain my grandmother's rule to the children and tell them that I plan on addressing them as children throughout the show. Should they hear me call them 'kids' they should remind me what a "ba-a-a-a-a-d" magician I am!

I don't know what motivated me to share that, but there ya have it!

You want ki-er children telling you that you're a bad magician?

Well, it's a joke that I'm certain the children will understand and can have fun with. Just imagine their screaming voices as they ba-a-a-a like a sheep because I said the word kids! Of course, I could just stick to whatever everyone else does and not be original...but wouldn't THAT be a ba-a-a-a-a-d magician?!

If "kids" is good enough for Buffalo Bob, I'll call them "kids", too.

Hi Decibell,

I think it's a nice bit of ORIGINAL business!

Well done!

Leslie.

I don't think I ever refer to the audience as a whole with any specific name or title

Smile anything that gets an audience involved must be good business. This is minor humour but can be used periodically to cover the little things that go wrong. They laugh: you find that prop that's decided to move on its own.

There was a funny bit of graffiti in liverpool. A sign read "Mersey docks and loading docks" and under it some had added "and little lambs eat ivy"

Bad idea.

You're giving all your power away to the children, who will then think that they can call you out on anything they like.

Be the one in control, be the performer.
