i know your suppose to have like 3 tricks per set but i dont want to have two card and a money trick. it seems to be repetitive and boring. i would rather just have two tricks a set, a card and a money trick. for all you experienced restaurant magicians, paddy, will the clients be satisfide with only two tricks or should i just do more?

thanks
Kyle

You should have at least 5-10 mins worth of magic for each table (if its a slow night) If its a fast night then mabye 1-3 tricks AT THE MAX!

Agreed. You don't want to wear out your welcome, and you also want to work as many tables as you can. Three to four good sets with two to four good effects should be plenty.

You don't want to run the risk of a table nearby catching on to what your doing, and they want to see/hear something fresh.

I'll tell you this. All tables are diffrent. Some tables I do 1 or 2 effects for because we are laughing and having a good time. Some tables are very into the magic and want to see effect after effect.
My routine is set so that I very between card's, money, mentalism and other effects.
A basic routine I will do is
Chicago Opener aka Red Hot Mama (non gaffed, wonderful and as the name says a opener)
Then I go to a 4 ace production and a version of John Daley's Aces.
Next I go into a coin Matrix routine (unless I don't have table space then I do coins across).
Then I follow up with Jay's 5 to 1 Transpo
2nd to last is Card to Wallet (one of the best effects I do and I get to hand out my buisness card)
Ending with a chop cup routine.

sorry for any spelling errors, don't got time to check it :-)
Now this list is the compelete set and varies from table to table. Its my all ages effects but for little kids I have a diffrent routine.
Now I have multiple effects that sub out the ones in the middle and opening so it keeps it fresh.
Also this set list gets cut short if its busy, the food comes, the customers arent feeling the set or anything else that comes up.

Kyle, I will repeat exactly what I wrote to you in the "table hopping" thread.

Kyle, why don't you go see a restaurant performer. Spend some time observing them. That would answer a lot of your questions.

Also start going to your loca I.B.M. ring or SAM assembly meetings and work with those people.

To find out where they meet go to the IBM and SAM websites. Look them up, you have to do some of the work.
