In the past I have had clients call a week ahead of time trying to get a show last minute. But I think tonight Takes the cake.... I Just received a phone call from someone asking if I could do a show for there daughter Tomorrow at 1:30 in the afternoon. Unfortunately I can not do. I can't believe people don't plan their parties better than this. Just thought I would share this with the rest of you.

I've had a number of short-notice performances over the years. I've even had a dad call me on a Sat. morning to see if I could do show that evening. (I could and I did.)

The reasons vary. The most common reason I get last-minute calls is that the event was to be outdoors and the weather has forced it indoors so they need entertainment. Obviously that happens in the spring, summer or fall but not in the winter.

I can beat that - I have had three calls today for Saturday and Sunday. All corporate affairs, so it is not as if they didn't know it was coming up. Couldn't help any of them. I am booked.

This is happens that I just returned was from a Christmas show for a realtor's office party (all the employee's kids were there) which I was booked for this morning. The show came off great, even though I was short on specialty-balloons, throwcoils, and giveaways due to the rush.
Everybody wants to beleive.....we just help them along.

A couple of months back I was booked for a weekday party just a day in advance. Then, the client called to cancel (can't remember if it was later the same day, or early the day of the party.) Mom had a friend who does close-up magic, so she'd asked him to come along. Then, 15 MINUTES before the party was due to start, I had a voicemail, email, and text message all urging me to come to the party if I could, as their magician friend couldn't make it! Luckily, I didn't get the messages until later in the evening, when it was too late to worry about.
Oh boy!
