I am 13 right now and am looking to make a restaurant routine so I could practice it then audition for a job at a restaurant when I turn 14. I know triumph, Torn, Spectator cuts the aces. Quick Coincidence, Sponge Balls, Invisible deck, Scotch and soda, Coin in bottle 2 card monte and . I have Bill malone on the loose volume 2 and 4, Torn, Revolutionary coin magic, Las Vegas Card Expert and Every Move a move, all the E dvds and Card College volume 2. If you know of any routines I can make with this or anything else I should get to make a routine. Thanks

Learn everything from the Bill Malone set and get the other two. During the explanations he gives a lot of really good tips, which you should have seen by now, that will help you a lot. Knowing tricks isn't the number one thing, either. It's knowing people and how to interact with people. Another video you may want to look into is Paul Wilson's Restaurant Act. It teaches a really good routine, outs to that routine, and how to structure a routine so that it flows.

What you need to do to come up with a good routine, is to think of an effect you really want to achieve. Then putting all your resources together, all the slieghts you know, and try to achieve this effect. For an example Morgan Strebler oneday thought that having a sighned coin borrowed and bent in mid-air would be a very cool effect. He then thought up on how to do it using the slieghts he knew how to do. When he putr his mind to it and used his resources he achieved is effect.

Just a tip on making a routine,
Sean

P.S. Try it. It will work

You described creating an effect, not a routine. You need to take the effect that you know and form a presentation out of it that the audience will enjoy. That is a routine. You are too young to be doing restaurant work. At 13 you are not even legally able to work and you expect to get a job being a magician in a restaurant when you turn 14? I'm sorry, but no manager will hire you. I'm willing to bet you don't have much experience. You need to take a couple of YEARS to practice and refine your magic even more, and THEN go out and look for restaurant work. I am 18 and just recently got a restaurant gig. I tried when I was 15...big mistake. You need to wait it out and until then perform for friends, relatives, or even do street magic.

Don't worry about having a massive reportoire, I've been making a living out of this for years and still only do, ambitious card (with blank cards), card to wallet, coins accross, 2 card transposition a few gags like pushing a pen up my nose. and a few other tricks as well, but the point is it's not that i can't do other effects but just don't need to. These are the effects that are entertaining.I'd put sponge balls in for sure as well any of the others that you really like performing cos you'l be doing them a lot.
