He did not ask how to make a name for himself, nor did he ask about getting private jobs by working the streets. He asked how to get hired to be a busker.
Now as to your claim in the first paragraph. In this age of distrust who is going to hire someone just off the street. Come on, tell the truth. I am an established performer and Sluggo is not only a well known clown, but is known as a Shriner and also a high ranking officer in the fire department. We BOTH have to provide references on many occasions before we are hired for a private event. So someone is going to hire a person just doing card tricks in the park.
No we are not looking to argue with people. We want to protect the art and profession of magic, so when some kid who has a "bite out" coin and a Scotch and Soda and thinks he is a "magician" raises his head we will tell the truth. We don't give him bull crap like you are trying to do.
I could care less who you are on these forums. I'm not even the age of 20 yet, and I'm more confident than a leprechaun that I can work a crowd better than you. You're established at your age, I'm proud of you. I'd bet my life that I've got a higher emotional intelligence than you. Not only are you here to argue, but you're here to "protect an art?" As in, tell people to "FORGET ABOUT MAGIC?" Simply because they asked how to become hired and "established" such as yourself? Look how childish you are... You're not a motivator at all. Instead, you walk over people on the forums, and have a huge trail behind you bowing down to you.
Undoubtedly, I'll have 100 people riding on your little bus that are going to argue back at my post saying "paddy is the best don't argue with him!" Do they know who you are? Will they ever? Keep trying to crush dreams. At your age, I'll be far more than locally known. Keep working your restaurants.
By the way, I was just telling him how to make a name for himself? Have you gone through a college education, smart [edited]? I have.
Sure, the kid asked some stupid questions, and has bad grammar. By far, I'd choose him on my team over you, paddy.
And as a conclusion, don't ever think a bite-out quarter loses to a bowling ball from a piece of paper. It's magic; it's entertainment. It's how far your mind can take it. Not the retail price slapped onto the effect. Shouldn't you know this, being an "established" magician?
