ok what would be a good price for a 2-3 hour day at a restaurant working 2 days a week?
In reading through this topic I have noticed a couple of things that indicate a problem on the horizon. MBL16 you are 16 years old, when someone suggested that you buy a DVD set that will teach you about restaurant work you said that you couldn't buy it.
From your questions it is obvious that you have never seen a restaurant magician, yet you want to be one. You ask if escapes are good for restaurant work. The answer should be obvious if you ever saw a performer. You question someone about the amount of hours he rehearsed per day, but as a professional magician working in restaurants, I'll tell you that it is true. Because of repeat customers that the party and stage boys don't need to worry about, we have to keep adding in new material all the time. Therefore our practice and rehearsal time is doubled from theirs.
This is a business, and business can be tough. If you are not very high quality, you'll find out how fast you can be fired and then blacklisted. Start going ;to ring meetings and learn from other magicians.
