i may start doing magic at a resturaunt, but i need some tricks to do.

I can already do The Matrix, most basic or intermediate card tricks, and a few coin tricks. I don't know what else i should practice. What are some tricks that are very good for resturaunts?

"tricks" arn't good for restraunts, routines are. I'm sorry but you sound like a very big beginnier. Assuming this, pick up card college volume 1, learn some stuff. Pick up cups and balls and learn some tablehopping routines.

If you have a friend that is good, ask him what he wants you to do, sence you're joining his routine.

You are not even ready to think about perorming in restaurants yet when you have to ask that.

You also state in a post that you will be "walking around with a friend who is NOT a beginner, and he will be doing most of the magic for the beginning." I question if your "friend" is a magician at all. If he was an experienced magician he would teach you all you need to know so that you would not screw up his reputation.

You sound like a kid with gimmicks so you think you can make some fast money. You can't do that in this business, a bad show will spoil the place from ever having magicians again.

Well since everyone just wants to tell him he is not ready for restauraunts and not give actual advice I will:

1.) get tricks that are instantly resetable
2.) small items that play big = in other words things that are small, quick, and to the point
3.) items that a varied age group can understand.... from kids to adults
4.) items that you can fit into your pockets and don't take up much space
5.) tricks that make you only at the table for about 3 minutes

There are some more but I will start with that and hopefully some more restauraunt workers can add in.....
Good Luck
Brian Styles

i agree with everyone else.. you are not ready! that is not a bad thing though.. it just means you have to practice and work really hard so you can get where you want to be.. I wish you luck on your journey!

true, but sometimes people dont nkow if they are ready untill they accually do 1 show or a walkaround 1 time and watch the reactions they get...because even i dont know if im ready until i show people the tricks and just go by the reactions

i disagree with S and S because it takes a while to reset. I'd try cups and balls, non gimmick, TT, kinda non gimmicked, more of a prop, and a deck of cards, stick to gimmick free stuff.

I like s and s but i reset while traveling between tables but i dont do it at every table, the other reason i like it...when it is a um full 1 piece then i do vanishes with it. saves room and i dont need to carry extra coins

cups and balls ive tried and anything you do that uses the table is ify at best

does not sound like your ready just yet, but the best thing for walkaround /table magic i think is the 3 ring circus it gets good reactions and you can come up with some good routines with it. also if you want to learn good impromtu magic you should on the spot gregory wilson.

No offense to Greg Wilson, I mean that's an awesome DVD with some great effects on it, but no respectable restaurant magician will perform any of those effects for table-hopping. They're fine for everyday, but they certainly do not make you look like a professional.
