I think it depends on how its handled. I know if I was running a convention that had stage acts, Id hire you and Steve in a heartbeat (and not just because Im a lascivious cad whod do anything to get a peek at your private portfolio you mention on your site ;) ). It would have to be a special event for adults only. But I think that theres been recent precedent set for adult oriented events at magic conventions: roasts and joke-offs etc. Yes, they are usually late at night and sure, they end up being a little controversial, but thats because of just a few folks who didnt bother to read the disclaimers regarding the event whine about it after the fact. But, for the most part, I think that they have been proven to be accepted and successful.
Just out of curiosity, how big is your Albino Burmese Python? Mine, Baby, is about 11 or 12 feet. (He doesnt like to be stretched out so its a best guess. I ran a string along his body as best I could then measured it.) Baby is somewhat of a special needs snake. His original owner (we are the third) neglected a sinus infection and now he only has one functioning nostril. Hed have to have reconstructive surgery and thats just too risky. So we have to be very careful to make sure the other remains healthy. Every once in a while, particularly when hes about the shed, he needs to breath through his mouth, so he opens widereally wideand takes a long breath in. There is, of course, a very loud hiss; it freaks people out because it looks so sinister!
Baby is a sweetheart though; loves to slither around and explore whatever he can. Hes the least head-shy snake we have (hes one of three); you can usually pet him like a dog. He has his own two-story condo in our bedroom, which freaks people out even more. You sleep with a snake?!
No, I dont use him for magic; he wont fit in any of my pockets! Hes just one member of the family.
