I am thinking about doing a stage performance and I need a little advice. Almost all of my repertoire is street/up close stuff. I already have D'lite and The House (No Strings Attached) in mind. Is there any other somewhat cheap yet effective for stage tricks out there that you guys would recommend? And hopefully not to hard to learn heh. Thanks!

Assumeing you don't want to invest in the Zig Zag or Mismade Lady, I would suggest the following:

Linking Rings
Anything with doves
Floating light bulb
Zombie
Card fanning
Square Circle
Torn and restored newspaper
Produceing something from some mouth coils

Good luck 8)

Cards are not very effective when it comes to stage material.

I work in a cabaret in Toledo, Ohio, you know - singing, dancing, comedy, improvisational stuff, magic, whatever is tasteful and entertaining - and I have been doing close-upstuff and making money with it. I want to put together a stage show, though, and I don't know much about what to get. I want to do a sexy, smooth, funny, and 50% audience participation. Otherwise I will lose my audience, the majority being men with short attention spans. I would like to do some illusions, and I don't know what else. I have some vague ideas, I want to incorporate some dance into it, a nicely choreographed show, but also a limited budget. I have been into magic for about 6 months, but performing - singing, dancing, acting - for most of my life. Thank You in advance!

Zombie is a classic. I still remember that trick from when I was a young child and a performer came to my school.

I would also have to say go with the Zombie, but you might want to read my Zombie review before buying. As far as performing the Zombie, there is this comedian/magician that has a great routine that would give you some good ideas for a mostly guy audience. If someone could help on the name, i am drawing a blank right now....he has a 30min show that is repeated alot on tv. He has a female assistant that acts dingy and when he performed with the Zombie he did a routine ummm less say in a sex way, as if he was excited-lol. If know one helps on the name, i will post it tomorrow, i taped the show.
