Hi, I want to know more what's everyone do. Does everyone here perform magic to friend, anybody, paid audience or all of the above?I
That varries from person to person here, just like every other forum.
We have seasoned pros, semi pros (like myself), and hobbyist as well.
You shouldnt use magic to impress anyone. You should do it for fun and to entertain them.
You dont perform magic to make yourself feel better than everyone else., if thats the only reason your started, no wonder you lost interest.
If you are having problems with Hecklers, its not because the performance is free, its because you have no audience control.
I perform for free at parties I go to with my friends, and I have shows that college frats can hire me for. But the "shows" are nothing alike, either. But I still leave a lasting impression, and I feel very satisfied at the end, knowning that I have entertained a crowd, brought smiles to these peoples faces, and "rocked their mind."
If performing for free doesnt satisfy you, then you have a problem. Magic isnt for you. Sounds like you are only in it for the money... plain and simple. But just dont want to say it so bluntly.
Well said David.
