Kyle the great it is IMPOSSIBLE to improvise an entire show like you described. If you are talking about doing a child's birthday party, you have to do some planning. I doubt you carry every single one of your tricks with you to each gig you get, so there's some planning right there. Also, many children's effects require set up, and I don't think you set up each and every trick before a show just in case you happen to want to use it at some point during the 45-60 minute performance. I seriously think you are crediting yourself for a little bit more than you actually do.
How much do you wanna bet?
I carry two trunks and a cardboard box to each gig along with backdrops, a rabbit, and a sound system.
I have a truck so it is easy to carry many things.
I set up a bunch of tricks and illusions before the show and use them as I feel or when I want. After the show I still have quite a few set up that were not used (some shows I have different props left over than others)
You say it is impossible. We are magicians, we take the POSSIBLE out of IMPOSSIBLE!
You also said that You think that I am giving myself too much credit. DON't Judge me! You have never seen my show before so you have absolutely no right to sit there and say that I am giving myself too much credit. I am highly enthusiastic about my work and the way that I do it! The way that I work my business is one of the things that sets me apart from many other magicians and entertainers!
I do in fact carry more to the shows than I should. BUT I DON'T CARE! I enjoy my work and I like being able to have every show different. This is great in the fact that no two audiences see the same show. Which is excellent for repeat bookings. I develop my own routines for tricks but the tricks are in no certain order!
Just because you think that it is impossible to improvise an entire show does not make it so!
Note: This is just for birthday shows, school shows require much more.
