Friends don't let friends prestidigitate drunk

Drinking and driving (of any kind- golf, car, motorcycle, bike, scooter) does not mix. It is also illegal to drink and drive.
Why? Because it is dangerous and can cause oodles of damage and even take lives. So why do it? There is no joy that comes from it, there is not perk or reward for drinking and driving.

Heck drinking doesn’t go with a lot of things- guns, machinery, math, spelling, or.. well anything that takes cognitive thoughts.

As a performer that mostly caters to college parties and college “conventions,â€

You rock on so many levels.......

I thank you for the dedication.

I would name my firstborn after you, but that's just not funny.

Well done!

Glad you liked it. I think it is kind of sparatic in writing. But hey it is not for English, and it gets the point across. :lol:

I had cards with me during my Fresher's Week Pub Crawl... Learned that however much I drink, my sleight of hand is fine. I don't fumble the DLs, passes, culling and palming. Hand shake also vanishes. However, anything that isn't so practiced as such, like passing the deck from one hand to another, is a risk. Also, patter goes out the window. Patter is very important to me, so I would not give a proper structured performance under the influence. Certainly I would not give a paid performance drunk. Maybe a half if the shakes are bothering me... Similarly, if performing music, I will not drink until I've finished performing. If I was any good, people will buy my drinks :-)

However, I can be persuaded to entertain friends, and simple effects like the ambitious card routine in which my patter is not so calculated and important are fine.

At a venue where everyone's drunk, nobody's going to give a [edited] how you perform.

David, stop picking on Jared. He can't help it. He's Irish. It's in his blood.

or better yet, you just dont drink. Much better to perform for drunks than perform drunk, or even buzzed for that matter.

Theres no fun in that. We like to drink and will continue to drink. Already had two tonight. Might even have another.

I just perform first, then drink once my shift is over.

When I was drunk myself and people were surprised that I still could do my tricks fairly good. Maybe it is because you don't need to think anymore what your next step in the trick is because you practiced it so much.
