    Street / Busking Magic

    Buy Jimmy Talksalot's book "To Lure With Spectacle" he's a professional busker and his book is STUFFED with information not from him, but from the greats. My show is spongeballs, a trick with 4 jokers to 4 places, and tossed out deck...that's it. It needs to be visual, and able to play big

    I am in a bit of trouble here

    I was about to say, I'm having visions of My Big Fat Greek Wedding where he ends up saying "I have 3 testicles" anyways, best of luck with the japanese. I've found that forcing the same card, ambitous card, and transpositions are very effective

    New Effect "Pen-e-trate"

    No, what I meant by a reason is that this trick would never flow in a routine. It seems to be a GREAT stand alone effect. But that's what it's a stand alone effect. it seems to me very "bottle, pen, bam, pen in bottle" No build or anything An ambitous card routine has a build, for...

    Are you a good magician?

    I know I'm a good magician because people stay and watch my show. I know I'm a good magician because I'm able to draw a crowd, keep a crowd, perform for a crowd, and get paid by a crowd. People don't give you money if you suck...and if they do, then I have made a LOT of pity money

    What's your reason for performing card magic ?

    I perform card magic because I think it's cool. I thought it was really really neat so I wanted to learn it. I make money from magic so that's good too. NOONE and I mean absolutely NOONE gets into magic at first for "sharing an experience with new people" or any of that other hard hitting...

    New Effect "Pen-e-trate"

    It's a good effect. But I ask...Why? What motivation or cause do you have to stick a pen in a water bottle?I guess your patter can be "I hate using pockets to hold my pens, they always leak and break. So I learned that a water bottle is best for this, because they are meant to hold things that...

    You can't pick-up chicks with magic?

    It depends on youre performance style. Mine was very flirty and very outgoing and (for lack of a better term) ballsy, so girls were very much inclinced to get to know me better. At no point did I use strcitly magic to "pick up" girls. I say it's impossible, the only time I use magic is once...
