WEll ye I supose it is slightly differnt. But on the whole very simlar.
Getting payed for a ressteraunt job is differnt. Because as far as I'm aware US get a fair bit of money from tips where as in England from what i know you get less in tips but the shop pay more... On the whole, not all the time.
Street magic. Well very simlar. Some people watch some others tell you to go away
Over here Magicians known by the general public are Blaine, Copperfield and Paul Daniels mainly. A few know others but if your doing magic someone will call you david Blaine. In the US I'm not sure if more people will know differnt magicains. I know Criss Angel is well known over there and hardly anyone knows him here.
Most people like magic and enjoy watching in general... Anything I've missed just ask mate
