I am so geeked! I just successfully did my first gig the other night. You may know from previous posts that I’m a magician. Well, I performed restaurant magic for the first time the other night and it went GREAT! I had a blast, the customers I was performing for were great, and it looks like the restaurant management wants to make it a regular, weekly thing… and most importantly, I’LL GET PAID to do it.
Good job…it’s always a blast when you enjoy what it is that you’re doing.
Here’s a good trick for you…go up to someone enjoying their supper and say…Ladies and gentlemen, for my finale, I’ll make this guy’s pie dissapear" Then, eat it.
That is part of the reason I decided to give it a try. I’ve been studying the art for about 9 years and have recently had quite a few people say that I was good enough to try something like this. I figure that when I hear more than 3 people say the same thing, I had better listen.
Way to go man! Book this under good things happening to good people.
When my kids were younger, I looked into magic - wanted to be the dad/uncle who could pull coins out of kids’ ears, etc. When I found out how much WORK it was to do the simplest manipulation, I quickly lost interest. (Tho it could be argued practicing my palming might be more valuable than the time I spend here!)
Knowing slightly how difficult it is, you have my respect.

Twisting the Aces
Tabaray’s ring and string effect
… and others. The above are some of the highlights.
Thanks! It’s been a dream of mine for quite awhile and my day job now allows it. It is a lot of work, but I enjoy learning the moves and seeing the faces of the people I perform for when I do something impossible.
