Although flight2 has made a series of very disrespectful post throughout his time here, I'm going to have to side with him.

The point of magic: to entertain. The spectators were entertained. That's the point.

Also, and I quote Magicmandan:
Magicmandan, in his book, wrote:
7. You are the best magician there is. Marlo, Vernon, Roth, Banachek, and onward… Perhaps these are your favorite magicians, your heroes, but they are entirely foreign to laymen. Not only are they unaware that Daryl won the FISM award for his Ambitious Card Routine, they don’t know who Daryl is, what FISM is, or what an ambitious card is. You may feel weak against other magicians, but take this comforting guarantee with you: spectators have nothing to compare you to.


This comes from a chapter about nervousness. Nonetheless, it still applies.

it still applies yes, but do you know how those people feel when they book a real performer the next time around? They realise the crap they got the last time. I have heard it from clients that have booked other performers in the past.

exactly, if you look at flights promo you may well think it was a real post if it was from him. Flight, i thought the birthday video was completly and utterly boring, unentertaining, and the parents were giving you sympathy claps, and you were not getting the amount of laughs per minute a kids entertainer should. Awful kids performance if you ask me.

My sentiments exactly.
Flight-2 it's hard to believe that you were gorged with compliments but then again it's hard to believe anything that you say. You said the reason that your voice was so monotone was because of throat problems?
There were hardly no laughter from the kids little to no interaction just one trick after another. The production box was destroyed by your asst.s obvious pulling the tab.
It was really boring as far as a kid show went. The Parents may have liked some of the illusions but there were no build up to them...Just bam,bam,bam. Trick after trick.
Time to go back to the drawing board, but then again you've never taken advice before.

I don't think you are aware of the history with Flight-2. It's long and agonizing.

Go back to the off topic forum we don't do the kiddy crap like this here. Some of us are actually working performers and all these childish posts are basically a waste of everyone's time. And it wasn't any fun! haha

Sorry for wasting your time, no offence was intended, I was just trying to have some fun!

I'm a working performer as well, if that makes any difference.
