first time on this section, i'm here reading guys posts for the last 2 hours... i thought of starting restaurant walkarounds out myself after reading all the great posts all of you guys published here.
i think myslef as an intermidiate magician. the only thing i bought so far that has to do with magic are the AOA books, which are great. i live in Israel (belive it or not) and i want to start working at a nice Restaurant.
first of all, i'm 17 years old, plz tell me if it's too young to start performing, i've already done a few kids shows for birthdays etc.
i handle very well with cards, i know false cuts, forces, double lifts, and MANY tircks. i can only buy from pengiun when my dad goes to the us (for job buisness) so i could send the shipment to him. i thought of buying some stuff but thats on the advice forum section if u want to take a look..
anyway, i think working at a non-junk food restaurant is the best way to go, coz people sit a long time and usally don't hurry anywhere... if i want to start working, how should i approach the boss of the restaurant? i mean, should i show him a few tricks? or show him the best tricks? or a short routine?
my dad would probably go to the us in 3 weeks, i want to get started after he gets back, i'm going to buy magic material for about 150$
another thing, how much do u think i should ask for per night? do u guys work 3 hours a night? 4 hours? or less?
i already have 2 card routins that i do perfectly, but i know i need more then that if the people come back on another day, and also, cards can get boring, it would even bore me doing only 2 routines... after my dad would get back, i'll have a few gimmiked tricks like the invisible deck, and maybe PK5.
also, i would probably go from table to table (are there any other ways?) and perform in that way magic to people. do people u done magic for sometimes follow you to see what you would do next? do people sometimes go all around you? i mean, like when i go to my first table and perform, wouldn't everyone in the restaurant would come to see whats going on?
i know i have a lot of questions, and i was hoping u guys would have all of the answers, or at least some of them. i would really appriciate if u even answer only one of the questions, so u won't have like half an hour wasted answering all of them.
tnx for reading this and for all the help
