Busking is more about you entertaining people then the magic. Plain and simple. No trick will teach you to be entertaining or cover it up if your not.
If your energetic, funny, captivating and have a wonderful personality then the tricks are very secondary.
I've told this over and over again to kids and teens that see me perform and want to become magicians. I can't stress it enough.
Buying tricks on a website or from a shop and doing them does not make you a magician. It makes you a guy that does tricks.
The best advice I can give you is come up with a routine, script it out, practice the entire routine. Test it out on the street and figure out whatâ€™s working and whatâ€™s not. Then rework it till its gold.
Magic is a performing art please help keep it that way.
Verry well said there, I totaly agree with you, I am a total begginer, but everything you have just said, occured to me naturaly.
And more things to the routine, again like Space ghost said, you can do the worst trick ever, but you can get huge applause if your presentation is at a high quality level.
I saw this Busker perform Classic Triumph, but everything was just so fast, people didnt have time to understand what happened, but if triumph is done well, it can get Huge reactions.
