I am looking for new stuff to start practicing for restaurant work . I welcome anything non card related and this little item seems to be perfect but is this workable in restaurant enviroment (and how long does the trick last ?)

This is a great restaurant item.I love this effect,

Pros: Packs small(and plays big)
You borrow the ring
It show many differnt tricks and routines on the dvd
Great Patter
Just a plane out great effect
Cons:
Must be good at misdirection
Some move require lots of misdirection




I rate this a 10/10

Hope this helps

Only a shortened, streamlined version of this effect would work for a restaurant. I have been performing Ring Leader (with my own order and extra sequences) for some time now, and I can say that it works best with a crowd of 10-40. This routine would draw entirely too much attention to itself in a restaurant, especially if you're planning on doing Wilson's ending in which case the spectator would need to be out of his/her seat standing next to you for the entire time. Not to mention the fact that anyone in the restaurant behind you will get a fantastic look at how one phase is done no matter how well you know the routine. If you are new to restaurant/walk-around magic and you're looking for routines, this is not the place to start.

One last thought is that no move in this routine actually requires misdirection. Everything, if done well, can be done under close scrutiny. Most would say, however, that everything in magic requires misdirection in some degree. While I believe this is true, you can be terrible at misdirecting people and still get away with these moves if you had to. Of course, that might make for an awful performance.

The Ring Leader routine as performed by Wilson is not good for restaurant work. However, the DVD itself contains enough ring & string material to enable you to create a viable ring & string routine of your own.

So...buy the DVD. You'll have a great ready-made R&S routine for appropriate venues and enough extra material to put something together for restaurants or whatever other venues you work.
