Just wanted to hear some opinions on stage magic (corporate shows, birthday shows, etc.) and street/ closeup magic.

That topic is so broad I don't even know where to start.
Both of them have their pros and cons and you should experiment with both to see which one seems more natural.
I prefer stage magic because I am always calmer. For some reason, I am smoother in front of an audience of dozens or hundreds, but I am more nervous in front of just a few people. It may be because I feel more "invited" when performing on stage because they came to see me, rather than in walk-around where I feel like I'm "interrupting" their day (which I sort of am). I also seem smoother with kids rather than adults.
I never would have known if I didn't experiment with it.

I'm the opposite of Drewer. I feel very comfortable doing busking, walk around and parties. I think of stage magic as Copperfield or Lance Burton type of stuff.
