This is for Peter,
I've been doing magic for about 5 surious years. I hope to start working at restauraunts and I was wondering if 1) you have any advice?
I'm very personable and outgoing, not scared to approach random strangers and ask to show them a trick, however my real question is what happens if I DO screw up. Now not like the last quotes I'm not saying I'm not good enough, I'm just implying that everyone makes mistakes and I hope not to but if I do, do you have any advice?
Lastly I have a pretty good routine, but if you have any effects that you really think might add a nice punch to my routine, please let me know.
Thanks for your time and advice,
OH YES!! I have had screw ups happen during walk around. Just act like it was planned. I do a routine with a 1.5" dia. rubber ball with appearances and vanishes. Well one day as I brought up the palmed ball it fell out of my hand, bounced on the table, hit the kid on the top of his head and I caught it in mid air. The kid started to laugh, his brother said "I saw how you did that!" I kept on going and just said "if you didn't see it you're blind."
Everybody thought it was part of the act. I couldn't have done that on purpose if my life depended of it.
