I have a cousin but he can spell and use grammar.


Is that why you spell your name as "borntopreform" instead of BorntoPerform?


My cousin didn't help me with that.

Approach as a person, start to make normal converstaion about weather, sports, etc, then do something unexpected...a trick. Vanish a cigarette, produce a silk, whatever, and then do something else. Follow up with something a bit different...in a restaurant, pick up a spoon and bend it with your mind. Figure out a routine, and go into it.

"Don't ask. Just do."

No no no.

YOU DON'T APPROCH PEOPLE.

People approch you do an attention-getter hummingbird card, a levetation, or d'lites. Dude use your imagination. Belive me you'll get a crowd in no time. :D


Hope this helped. :D

The biggest thing if you’re planning to go out and do street magic
I cannot say this enough to people
Treat it as if you were going on a blind date with a girl you really want to impress
Be clean, shave, act professional,
DON’T BE CREEPY
Don’t act like a stalker or a lurker

Your appearance is the biggest thing, unless your criss angel. don’t act like you’re the most broody serious person a live, lighten, and loosen up…..

Bright personalities, ensure bright responses

Off subject……. If you own an ultra smoke 2000 or similar gimmick please don’t go up and make smoke appear……. To get attention that makes me want to puke in my soup

i like to say "hello my name is gary im a magician....." (throw in some jokes) i dont want to just walk up and start talkin about anything it seems kinda weird.

or ill just not even looking at the spectator(s) do something that grabs their attention like a levitation or some kind of production

Now I know that you are a novice. You NEVER, NEVER, NEVER ask people if they want to see magic. By introducing yourself and stating that you are a magician that's exactly what you're doing.

You draw the crowd to yourself and have at least 5 to 10 people stopped and watching you before you ever start your routine.

Approach someone friendly and ask if they have a moment.

FlaminMagic is right on. Do the Hummer card or Hover card standing by yourself where people can see you. The ones that are interested will come to you. Then introduce yourself, get to know them, and begin your show.
