hi guys,

Saturday, I did my first street magic performance in Cambridge. It was a pain to find a spot but finally I found one wich seemed not very good at the beginning but revealed itself to be excellent then.
I was right in front of the CVS, on the side walk.

The first minutes were difficult, then people began coming over, like that :

Then, more people came... :

I just did not stop until 11:15 pm ( I started around 7:30 pm )

I performed a lot of tricks : crystal buggy = Morlas car (see first picture), sponge balls, biddle trick, color monte, wow, knife enveloppe and signed card, coarks, napkins, rope tricks, ring, some mnemonica miracles, rubberbands, balloons etc etc...

Sponge balls and D lites were as usual great :

This picture is kind of ugly, but my sister wanted to show harvard, because I am french, and harvard is such a famous place !!! :

Image

I had to be careful cause of the bad angles with people everywhere around me :

Image

I passed the hat and got 92 dollars, enough to pay back my license and get some money for me !
It was a great moment I will definitively go back soon !
Thank's for reading so far

Catusse

Catusse, you say you "won" $92. It might be just a translation thing but it got my attention. Here we say that we "passed the hat" and go $92 or even "had $92 in my hat."

When you say you "won" something it sounds like you were gambling or running a "monte" scam. Either one can win you a trip with free meals and a room at the local jail.

No, I did not meet any troubles. Only one drunk guy took my deck of cards, picked out one card then put it back and asked me what was it ? I said that I was a magician, not god... then he left 1 dollar and went away ! That's it.

Good out/one-liner. Do you mind if I use that, if I ever need to?

I don't mind at all you can use this line. It's funny and it helps !!!
After this guy I perform a very strong effect, with a card thought using the Tamariz Mnemonica order, and I said to the audience that I was able to do beautiful things but not for these men ! anyways, people loves dreaming.
