He's never observed a working 'magus' at a restaurant.

Or maybe he's seen one or two or three or four, who did different lengths of routine, and is interested in opinions.

You are clearly an experienced guy paddy, but you don't necessarily know everything about every poster who asks a question.

I searched the forums and didn't find an answer. When you are table hopping, what is the ideal amount of time you should spend at each table before moving on to the next? Thanks in advance!


OK, let's get back to the original question and questioner. Nick326, there is really only one reason to ask this question, and that is you have never observed a working magus at a restaurant. So I am going to ask you a question that must be answered. Why do you want to be a restaurant magician? Because it sounds like fun? I see so many kids that think "magic is fun and easy so I can make money doing it and not have to work like my parents, I'll have a fun job. Well you're wrong if thet's why you want to be involved in the restaurant business. Go talk to one of us that makes his living working restaurants and spend a couple of days with us.


It wasn't a restaurant gig. It was at an elementary school for a father-daughter dance. I was asked by the person setting the dance up if I would walk around to different tables and doing magic for people. I had never even considered working in a restaurant before. To tell you the truth, I've been doing magic for about 2 years now and I feel I don't have enough experience to become a restaurant magician.

BTW- The show went great. Thanks for all your guys' help. I ended up creating another routine to make it 3 in all.
