Hey, I have been doing some magic for only about six months now. I have practiced every day for many hours a day, even when I am at work. I am always carrying a deck of cards in my hands just to shuffle, cut, practice. Anyway, I have an opportunity to do some restaurant work and don't have a clue what to charge. Can anyone out there give some advice to me on what to charge? Thanks in advance

I feel that I am good at the stuff that I do. Mostly cards, and money tricks. I am learning more all the time. I don't want to get rich off of it either. I just want to make a little money to support this habit forming hobby. The people that I have seen walking tables at restaurants just jump from table to table doing one or two effects per table. I will only be at the restaurant for two - three hours at a time, once a week or even every other week.

if you are going to even consider charging someone to see magic tricks, you had better be very near professional in every detail of every trick. Everyone knows exactly what magic is, a trick.. so dont expect to get wealthy, unless of course you are David blaine :D

TRISTAN has a HUGE ego that devours beginners. He feels as though he must intimidate everyone.
