In order to clarify the discussions please post in the same color as the question if you dont know how to do that click on the little button that says font colour once and type the desired message between the two symbols.

How much time do you personally find to be the best per table?

Somewhat relating to the last question, how many tricks per table?

How long is each of your shifts?

How many "sets" or routines do you use?

How old?(only answer don't argue)

Thanks!!!

I'm not going to address the questions in the same color. I will answer your questions though. One, you should really search before you ask this. And also, go buy Live at the Jailhouse.

I do about three effects per table, on average. Each effect allows me to quit at various different points though, just in case the need would arise.

I work a minimum of 2 hours a night.

I have about 10 sets with me that I can use. Usually, I do about four routines.

16 at earliest. The older the better. I would suggest being at least 18.

Well the rules of the place state that you should not use coloured text, so I'm not.
The best time per table is between 2 to 3 minutes.
Between 2 and 4 hours depending on the crowd. If there are a lot of people I keep going, for 2 reasons. 1. the restaurant will notice and the brownie points add up. 2. The tips add up to an extra $75 t0 $100.
It varies with the density of the people. If there are a lot of tables busy I use more effects.
I am 60+ yrs old. You are asking for facts not opinions on that query.

2-5 minutes a table

3 effects i find is perfect. If its a slower night I do a full 5 effect routine

2 hour minimum shift. But like Paddy I always show up early and leave late as the managment does not care because they only pay for the 2 hours but I get more tips.

I have 3 routines developed for a all ages with a mix of young and old, if its almost all little children I have a diffrent routine developed for them.

How old? How old am I or how old should one be to perform?
Well I'm 27. How old should someone be? I have to lean more to 18-20.

Cheers,
Adam

thats what i was gonna say, the poster is asking for opinions there are no such things as facts for this.

In fact thegenius is posting this because we told him not to post he untried advice, so he has nothing else to post.
